To help songwriters capitalize on this demand for songs and understand the many changes and pitfalls within the industry, a veteran songwriter now shares his success secrets.Recording pioneers would hardly recognize the music industry today. While new acts rise and fall, technology such as CD burners and Internet file sharing programs ignite battles over copyrights and royalties. One aspect of music that has not changed, however, is the industry's insatiable appetite for new songs. Fred Koller, whose hundreds of recorded compositions include three number one hit songs, has fully revised and expanded his classic guide How to Pitch and Promote Your Songs.

Drawing from his nearly thirty years of experience as a professional songwriter, Koller reveals the tools to getting songs recorded. By detailing a hit song's journey from the writer's imagination to music store shelves, Koller helps readers understand the business perspective of songwriters, publishers, producers, agents, and others. Songwriters can use this insight to negotiate with music publishers, target specific producers through the use of "trademark" styles, work within the latest marketing trends, and much more.From the Author:
