Royalties: A royalty is a payment made by one party (the “licensee”) to another that owns a particular asset (the “licensor”) for the right to ongoing use of that asset.

License: A license agreement defines the terms under which a resource or property are licensed by one party to another, either without restriction or subject to a limitation on term, business or geographic territory, type of product, etc.

Mechanical Royalties:
Generated through the sale of music in physical formats such as CD’s and DVD’s, or digital formats through downloads predominately on iTunes but also on-demand services like Spotify.
Money comes through your publisher or you get sales from iTunes. This is a fixed fee the label has to pay.

Performance Royalties:
Generated when music is performed publicly through broadcast on television, radio, cable and satellite, live performance at a concert or other performance venues (hotels, bars, restaurants, etc.).
The money is collected by PRO’s such as ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, etc.. and is then divided amongst the writer(s) and publisher.

Synching Royalties / Licensing
These are generated when music is used in conjunction with visual images, such as films, television programs, television commercials and video games.
This is a one-time fee collected by the publisher and paid to the writer (usually 50/50)

Master Royalties

Master royalties are paid to a label when the label’s recording is used in an advertisement, film, television program, streaming service or other medium. Master royalties are typically paid in addition to synchronization or public performance royalties, as royalties paid to the publisher only grant the rights to the use of a song, not a specific recording of a song.

Other Royalties
These are generated when music is used in mobile ringtones, streaming, stage productions or print music.

When you manage to finish 90% of the assignments within the masterclass you’ll be given the TT certificate, proving you truly are Totally Tuned and ready to go out there with your music and your talent and rock the world.

If you score at least an 8 (out of 10) you’ll be added to our Elite Team. This means you’ll be the first to recieve opportunities and real assignments.

It’s not easy making it in the music industry, it’s not easy making a living with your talent. The TT Masterclass will really help you get a future as a creative entrepreneur by doing what you love most.
Working with artists, brands and media will be much easier after our lessons and with your new knowledge and network. In the future we’ll keep on connecting you to our clients and opportunities and help you in any way we can.
