Composer Geoff Zanelli drops some difficult truths in his recent Twitter post:

While I don’t feel quite as strongly on all points, I do agree that cold emailing a composer with your music is not likely to get you hired.

(If you’ve done that, don’t worry—we’ve all been there.)

The key is to build a real relationship with someone.

Slowly, patiently, authentically. ๐Ÿ•

No ulterior motives, no expectations. It takes time, but in time the seeds you plant in your relationships with others will grow. ๐Ÿชด
