The administration of your music does not need to be a frustration for you. As with any business, there are questions along the way and I hope to be a helpful resource for you. If you are a songwriter or a publisher, or a self-published songwriter, each issue you face on your journey will hopefully make you wiser for the next step on the path. Publishing and administration issues will be addressed here as well as overall business topics including marketing and career development. If your situation requires legal advice, you will be referred to also consult a competent entertainment attorney.
