How do I correctly enter composers for a Classical album?

If you are signing-up a classical album, it is required that the full composer name is entered in the Songwriter section of your members account.

EXAMPLE:

"Johann Sebastian Bach" or "Ludwig van Beethoven" - CORRECT 

"JS Bach" or "Beethoven" - INCORRECT

You can also reference a list of full composer names by using Wikipedia or IMSLP.

Please do not list the lyricist, librettist, or similar artists in the Songwriter/Composer role, or list yourself as arranger.

If you wish to credit yourself as arranger, please do so in the track titles like so:

Préludes, Book I, L. 117: VII. La fille aux cheveux de lin (Arr. By Stephanie McDonald)

Any additional information, such as translations, version or edition information, must be placed within parentheses at the end of the track title.

EXAMPLE:

The Carnival of the Animals: XIII. The Swan (Arr. for Cello and Piano)

L'isle joyeuse, L. 106 (Revised 1947 Version)
