Music Publishing Coordinator

When a music supervisor or other client is searching for the perfect soundtrack to accompany a television episode, film, or advertising campaign, they often turn to boutique music publishing companies that offer services for sourcing existing songs and producing original scores. The music publishing coordinator works directly with the owner and senior management of the company to perform administrative and creative functions in relation to music publishing activities.

Transcriber

Transcription, in musical terms, formally refers to the process of writing musical notation based solely on a recording of the song. Recording artists are not in the habit of composing sheet music for all instrumental parts on a track, nor do contemporary musicians always play a song precisely how it was written. A transcriber can take a commercially released album or recording of a live performance and put written notes to each musical part.

Lyricist

The work of the lyricist is the art of substitution; at least that’s how Sheldon Harnick, the Tony and Grammy award-winning wordsmith of musicals such as Fiddler on the Roof and Fiorello describes it. Songwriting, in the form that a lyricist sets words to a composer’s melodies, is a craft of poetry and wit.

Music Publisher

Until the early 20th century, music publishing referred exclusively to the printing and sale of sheet music. In the contemporary business model, music publishers secure rights to original material and exploit those rights by licensing the material for recording, airplay, inclusion in films and television, and a myriad of other commercial uses.
