A note to all my supporters
If you are reading this, I am guessing you are a fan/supporter of my music (if not, then HOW ARE YOU SEEING THIS?!). There is something I want you to know.
A back porch conversation over wine and pasta with one of my best friends last night, plus some serious self reflection today, have helped me really see something. It’s something I realized before, but something I never really pondered the extent of.
There are a lot of people out there that have my back. A LOT.
If you are one of them (and seriously, if you’re not, why are you still reading this?) then I’d like to give you a sincere, wholehearted THANK YOU.
Without my army of musical supporters (and I don’t necessarily mean people who have bought my albums, although I am so SO grateful for that. I mean anyone who takes the time to watch films I score, follow me on social media, offer kind words and advice, etc.) I definitely would have given up and started a career as an accountant or something boring by now. You are the reason I’m still doing what I’m doing, and words can’t describe how grateful I am for that.
There have been some dark moments in my career. I’ve been fired, rejected, harshly criticized, undervalued, and ignored. There have been times where I just wanted to give up on composing completely. But the knowledge that there are so many people out there rooting for me keeps me going. I’m not going to give up, and I have you to thank for that.
I’m not quite established yet. I don’t get enough gigs to make composing a full time job. But I’m getting there. I think I can make it happen with some hard work and perseverance. And I hope that in the meantime, you’ll continue to enjoy what I create.
So once again, thank you for your support. I wouldn’t be where I am without you.

I forgot to show tumblr my new reel when I made it! I’m sorry. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me.

Anonymous asked: The fact that you're giving away an original composition is amazing. Do you write for brass instruments?
Thanks! I do! I can write for pretty much any type of instrument :)

Dear people of tumblr,
I have decided to do a giveaway! ZOMG!
My name is Megan Carnes and I compose instrumental music. For the winner of this contest, I will compose anything you want! Want your very own action hero theme song? Done. A love theme for your OTP? Donezo. A bassoon cover of Bye Bye Bye? Sure, I don’t judge. As long as it doesn’t require singing and is under 5 minutes, I will do whatever you want!
I will also send some other stuff, like a mix CD and candy! So pretty much this is the best giveaway ever.
1) In order to enter, you must reblog this post and you must also be following megancarnesmusic.tumblr.com (don’t worry, you can unfollow me after the contest is over. My feelings will only be a little bit hurt). Winner will be selected with a random number generator.
2) Reblog as many times as you want, but be mindful of your followers please.
3) I will send the prize anywhere in the world! So if you’re not in the US, do not worry.
4) You have to be comfortable giving me your address so I can send you the stuff, although I guess I could just send a digital copy of the song file if you’re not. But don’t expect candy if you don’t give me your address!
5) Contest ends May 1st. Have your askbox open so I can contact you if you win! Also, give me a month or so to write your music, these things take time.
Feel free to drop any questions in my ask! And if you want to hear my music, check out some of the old entries in this blog or go to megancarnesmusic.com
