how to affiliate with the

TLC Publishers Group

A Resource for helping you

become an Indie Publisher!








The TLC Publishers Group is available to Indies that want to

publish their sheet music catalogue online.





Impact & Longevity

One of the most powerful ways to impact the world is through the printed page.

Though the revenues from the printed page are smaller than that of recorded music,

the potential of placing the music in the hands of people is greater.

In addition, sheet music has longevity, allowing God to use it on a continual basis,

to build His Kingdom.


CCLI Royalty

TLC recommends all publishers consider affiliation with CCLI.

This has proven to be another source of revenue for songwriters and publishers.

Though revenues for sheet music may be initially small, CCLI royalties can grow to a substantial

residual income, as more and more church sing from your printed page.

TLC recommends considering "give-aways" periodically,

as an incentive for growth in the CCLI royalties.

It is important to include CCLI numbers on all sheet music.

If you need help with CCLI, TLC can be contracted to complete the CCLI Administrator affiliation for you.
