First Royalty Check!!!

Post by mazz » Mon Oct 29, 2007 6:29 pm

Today I received my first royalty check from having my music played on TV!!!!!!!It's not a very big check (2 plays) but it's a very big deal in my life as it marks another brick in the path toward becoming a full time composer!!Right now I'm busy writing for the next batch of shows and hopefully more plays and bigger checks!!! WOOOHOOOO!Mazz

imagine if John Williams and Trent Reznor met at Bernard Hermann's for lunch and Brian Eno was the head chef!

Congrats Mazz!!It must feel great!! I got a very small check (my first) for some radio play about a year ago and framed a color copy. The frame cost way more than the check was worth, but I am proud to have it on my wall.So, frame a copy!! Enjoy!!Hope it's the first of MANY, Casey
