20 TV Networks Have Used My Music - Thanks TAXI!

Post by DanLuedke » Tue Sep 19, 2017 4:55 pm

I just wanted to share a milestone with you all and let you know what TAXI has helped me accomplish: As of my most recent BMI statement, my music has been heard on at least 20 TV networks.

If you are new to TAXI and perhaps frustrated, my advice is to hang in there, trust the TAXI process and good things will happen. “Write, submit, forget, repeat” is the saying around here! Keep honing your craft using feedback from screeners and the forums as well as info from TAXI TV. And definitely network and co-write! When I completed my first collaboration with my first collaborator, Cass McEntee, I went from a composer who was still looking for his first forward 9 months into his membership to a composer with a piece of music that would eventually be heard on TV. Not to mention I made a great friend.

Also, the Road Rally is perhaps the best benefit of your TAXI membership so don’t miss it!

If you are thinking about joining TAXI, my advice is don’t wait until you feel ready because you probably never will. Just jump in. I joined as soon as I discovered TAXI even though I didn’t even own basic recording equipment and I have never regretted it. In fact, I kick myself for not discovering TAXI sooner.

p.s. It’s been a busy year for me and I feel like I have become a stranger around here - I don’t even know half of you! Nonetheless, don’t hesitate to say hello at the rally. I love meeting new members!

Great to hear of your accomplishments Dan. Never underestimate the power of such stories either. There are so many of us who keep grinding away hoping to emulate your achievements, and the inspiration that comes from hearing how it happened for you is what we all feed on. Thank you for telling us, and I wish you a whole lot more success.
