    You should never pay to have your music reviewed by a company that may be seeking to publish, produce or record the material. Reviewing the material free of any fee, is the practice of legitimate companies wanting hits for their artists or recording.

    Do not a fee to have a publisher make a demo of your songs. Some publishers do take demo exspenses out of future royalties, but you should never pay upfront for demo costs for a song that is signed by a publisher.

    Never pay to have your songs published! A legitmate company interested in your songs takes on the responsibility and cost of promoting them. The company invests in the material because it expects a profit once the songs are recorded and released.

    "NEVER EVER" pay to have your lyrics or poems set to music! "Music Mills" -for a price- may use the same melody for many lyrics and poems. Publishers tend to recognize one of these melodies instantly!

    Hopefully these tips have been helpful.

    Are you a publisher? Are you accepting material? Thanks, Kurt
