Dear Music Publisher,
Below, you will find a sample graphic showing the type of score commentary
I intend to include in my eBook: "How to Write Your Songs Down."
All scores used in the eBook will be used with permission only.
The eBook provides access to a specific, interested, highly targeted, warm
market for publishers.
Publishers have the following options:
- Refuse Dainis W. Michel (hereafter referred to as Author) permission to
use examples of their materials in his teaching guides. (I am actually interested
in the law on this matter, since I'm marking up and commenting on the notation
in order to help others learn how to notate their songs. Such use of material
may fall under educational exclusions of which I am currently not aware...please
- Allow Author permission to use examples (or selected examples) for "image
quoting" where the source is duly noted.
- Enter into a formal agreement with Author to include links to the publishers
books within Author's eBook. Author and Publisher will agree on a percentage
sales fee for all books sold via referral from Author's eBook or from Author's
Sample from Adler Samuel, Sight Singing | Pitch, Interval, Rhythm (New
York: W. W. Norton & Company, 1979), p. 57. Permission for use of the sample
is currently being sought. If permission is granted, then the eBook may include
a "Buy Samuel Adler's book now!" link.
Please feel free to get in touch with me via email, fax, or phone.Vienna time
is UTC/GMT +2 hours.
