David Trotter Interview (part 1) and Song Writing Challenge for 2012

David TrotterNSAI Australia's Zelda Sheldon had the pleasure of meeting some leading educators and music publishers at the 2010 Taxi Road Rally in Los Angeles, including David Trotter, owner of Studio 51.

As a premier Broadcast Music Supplier, David gets music onto TV and into Movies. He works a lot with unpublished songwriters and his take on music business is eye-opening to say the least. David presented two informative sessions at the Taxi Road Rally on music for television and afterwards agreed to an interview for NSAI Sydney - here's the first of his two-part interview.  

Not only was David willing to generously share his time and his superb information in the interview - but he has also given Australian members of NSAI a new song challenge. And this time the challenge is offering an awesome prize - not one but THREE publishing deals.
