Jerry Engelbach replied to Gav Brown's discussion I’ve Been Accepted By a Publisher question
"I think you're being ripped off. At least a fifty-fifty split would be more fair. 70-30 (70 to the composer) is more industry practice. However, you're making nothing off the work now, so maybe something is better than nothing. Cheers,Jer"

Jerry Engelbach replied to Paul Walker's discussion Orchestrating for beginner
"The best book on the capabilities of instruments is probably Orchestration, by Cecil Forsyth. This is a well-known "bible" of the playing characteristics of each instrument. Cheers,Jer"
