Manchester Music is the only library to offer four distinct licensing options.

  1. Track license
  2. CD license
  3. Annual Blanket license
  4. Per Use or Production Blanket license.

We recognize the extreme diversity of today's production music market. Some people need a track once for a single production, while others score whole television series. The audience for productions ranges from the website of a small business to international broadcast on multiple media. Some clients can hear what they need on the website, others need to download tracks and lay them into videos before they determine what music they want to license. Budget considerations vary from pay as you go to government agencies with fixed yearly budgets.

Whatever your needs you'll find a licensing option that gives you our great music at a price you can afford.
