Songtrust's Knowledge Center: Information at Your Fingertips

One defining pillar that Songtrust has is our dedication to the education of and communication with creators. If we can empower you with the knowledge to make better, more informed decisions about your career, we’ve succeeded. With the goal of educating about music publishing comes the responsibility to communicate with our community and with our clients effectively. This is what sets us apart from the rest -- that we believe the songwriter and the song are the most important thing, and finding new ways we can help support them.

Below are all the ways that you can interact, communicate, and learn from our team:

Social Media

One way you can interact with our team is by following us on all social media channels - Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn - to see what new content we’re releasing, what events we’re hosting or attending, and learn important tidbits about music publishing. In addition, we regularly monitor the message inbox for all our platforms. While we aim to respond in a timely manner, the team monitoring the direct messages main goal is to help direct you to the best area of communication with our team rather than solving issues with accounts or registration.
