Royalty Free Background Music

The importance of royalty free music
(and where to get it)...

Deeply relaxing royalty free background music is an essential part of any guided meditation, hypnosis or relaxation audio production.

In fact, the music is probably the first thing that people will notice about your work.

Meditation teachers, hypnotherapists, holistic healers, personal development consultants all over the world come to us and ask the same question:

"Can I use your music in the background of my own recording?"

As you might have discovered, there is plenty of deeply relaxing music on this site, but it's only available for personal use. However, we have made our music available with a royalty free license on our sister website: Royalty Free Meditation Music.com.

Just to reiterate, music purchased directly from The Guided Meditation Site is strictly for personal use only, however you can purchase the same music with a royalty free license from Royalty Free Meditation Music.com. You will pay a higher price for music with a royalty free license, but this license will allow you to use the music for commercial purposes, for example, to create guided meditation recordings that you can sell to others.



What exactly is royalty free background music?

When a musician creates a piece of music, they own the copyright to that music. Copyright law prohibits you from using their music in your own project or playing their music in public unless you obtain a license to do so.

Royalty free music licensing is the simplest way to get the music you need without infringing on any copyright laws. We estimate that over 90% of all guided meditation/hypnosis/relaxation recordings incorporate royalty free background music these days.

The beauty of royalty free music is that you only have to pay a one-time fee for the music and then you can use that music for commercial purposes forevermore, without having to pay any ongoing fees or commissions to the person(s) who composed or produced the music.

With most royalty free music, there are no contracts to sign and no ongoing fees, which is exactly what most people want when they are creating a guided meditation (or similar) recording.

Royalty free music costs more than "normal" music, but it allows you to make money selling audio productions that incorporate the music. Most people reclaim the cost of their royalty free music just by selling a few downloads of their audio production.

The music on The Guided Meditation Site is for personal use only, but most of our music productions are also available with a royalty free license from www.Royalty Free Meditation Music.com.


A few words about what makes us different

The same people that operate The Guided Meditation Site also operate www.RoyaltyFreeMeditationMusic.com.

We create guided meditations ourselves, and we have helped thousands of other people create them too. So if you are a meditation teacher, hypnotherapist, stress management counsellor, holistic healer or personal development consultant of any kind, we can talk your language. We understand your needs and we are very capable of proving you with expert advice and assistance.

You'll also find that our royalty free license terms are simple and easy to understand. We know that what you really want is to be able to use our music in the background of your own audio production, or during live sessions with clients without ever having to pay ongoing performance or licensing fees of any type.

We're here to make that happen for you, and we're here to help.
