Publishing

Publishing your music means putting it out there so other people can listen to it. This is how you make money off you music. As with any kind of media, you can find a publisher to do it for you, or you can do it yourself (self-publish). To publish your music, check out www.tunecore.com or www.cdbaby.com.
