The Philippines is home to some of the world’s most sophisticated music production facilities.
In fact, according to a recent study, the country boasts more than a million music videos that are uploaded to YouTube.
Here are 10 tips for making sure your favorite tracks are played live in the Philippines.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Even the best-intentioned person can miss a track or two if the producer doesn’t get it right the first time.
The more experienced the producer, the more likely they are to give you what you want.
Don�t just take what the producers say.
If you want to try your hand at composing your own songs, start by watching YouTube videos and then write your own lyrics.
Then try to compose your own melody to accompany your original song.
Take the time to listen to tracks that others have composed before you.
There are so many songs out there, why not make a playlist?
This way, you can hear tracks that you don�t know about and might not be familiar with.
Take care of your equipment.
It is crucial to make sure that your camera, headphones, microphones, and sound equipment are up-to-date and that they are not leaking, which can cause a bad sound quality.
Make sure your music is authentic.
If your tracks are not authentic, you might not get a good response from the producers.
This is why it is important to have a record of the songs you want and keep a list of the producers who have submitted them.
Be prepared for the worst.
It might be tempting to get frustrated by the difficulties of production, but don�st be discouraged if you end up disappointed with your songs.
Instead, make sure you have a backup plan to keep your music together.
Pay attention to the artist.
The producers can sometimes ask for something in exchange for a song, but it is better to listen carefully to the artists to see what they want.
If they are asking for money, make it clear that you will not accept money in return for the track.
If there is a chance that your songs might be lost in the mists of time, make the best of it.
If it takes longer than expected to upload a new video, it is not unusual for your songs to be lost.
Make a backup copy of your recordings and share it with the producer.
If a producer asks for a fee, make that clear.
Keep a good track record.
Every track you upload to YouTube should have a title, artist name, and song title.
These titles are essential to remember and will help the producer know what to expect when he or she finds a song.
Make your own playlist.
If the producer has provided you with a list, you have the opportunity to share it publicly with the public.
Keep track of what you did when you uploaded your song and share your playlist.
