From jazz to electronica...
From introspective piano solos
to atmospheric production music...
original compositions that embrace a
wide range of styles and emotions.
JanetB began her musical journey at a young age learning the classical repertoire of the piano. And thanks to the gift of a transistor radio on her sixth birthday, she immersed herself in the popular music genres of her time - Top 40, singer-songwriter, Motown and rock. She earned her B.A. in Music & Theatre from the Aaron Copland School of Music (Queens College) in New York City, where she studied music theory, composition, and all other aspects of the craft. She enjoyed working with local theatre groups as musical director and accompanist, giving her hands-on experience with show tunes and the American Songbook.
JanetB collaborates with a number of artists and producers in the U.S. and abroad on various projects. She is a co-founder of Music MakeHers, a group dedicated to helping female musicians become knowledgeable and confident music producers.
JanetB is a registered BMI artist.
What is production music?
It's music written specifically for film, TV or any other kind of video presentation. The tracks are often fairly short, and focused on a single mood or emotion. Some content creators prefer to license production music rather than hiring a composer. It can be a challenge to create this music without knowing ahead of time exactly how it will be used.
Here are some of my original production cues that are being considered for music licensing.

I enjoy creating videos for my music. Some are just a single image, and others incorporate a number of stock images or footage that I feel matches the music very well.
