♪ What if I do not like the song when it is finished?
We have never had a person who was not extremely happy with their song. The 10-day song clip is the way we keep situations like this from occurring and works well.

After we receive your order form including your example song/s and desired vocals, we choose a composing team (we have about 50 teams across the U.S.), we choose an artist that is close to the sound of the music you desire. If you do not like the vocalist we pick, we can acquire another one for you, however there will be fee associated with this change so we can pay them for the studio time. We strongly encourage you in the order process to tell us what type of vocalist you are looking for in your song.
♪ What if I want a tempo change?
After we receive your order form - including the example song/s you give us as your preference of how you want it to sound (you can choose one famous song with a similar beat/tempo and/or one with the "sound" or style you want) we choose a composing team that will be able to compose it as requested from you. If you do not like the tempo (beat) of your song or are not feeling the "vibe" and just want a flat out redo, there is a charge to make this change. We strongly encourage you to indicate the type of tempo (beat) you would like for your song on the order form to avoid this scenario. It's simply giving us an example of a famous song or two that you like. That's it!
♪ Who owns the song when it is complete?
At YourSongmaker, we believe that everyone involved in the artistic piece should share the ownership rights. Each of us have a direct impact on how the song turns out. There is a three way split and that split is 40% to the lyricist (you), 40% to the composer, and 20% to YourSongmaker. Songmaker Productions aka YourSongmaker will copyright your song when it’s complete naming each of us as partial owners and the above percentages
♪ Can I work with the composing team or musician directly?
No. Well, you could and some other sites will try to pair you with a musician to work with you. Musicians however, are very busy people. A lot of times they’re on the road, in the studio, creating projects (several), playing in bands at night, playing in open mic nights, etc. making it difficult to get in touch with them. Unfortunately, sometimes that happens right in the middle of your project. Here at YourSongmaker, our composers are passionate about what they do and work directly with our executive producer, David. We take all of the burden off of you to get it done – the way you want it in two weeks.
♪ Can I put the song up for sale on social media?
