“Well thought-out initiative to revolutionize music sales by composers " Floris Kortie, TV ('Podium Witteman') and Theater ('The year 250 after Beethoven')
"Finally a place where the rights of the composers are respected and a fair price is paid for the creative work."
"A wonderful initiative, I've been waiting for this for years. I recommend every composer to participate."
"Sonolize offers composers an online platform to publish and distribute their music themselves. This has the future in this digital age and provides a win-win situation for all involved. I warmly welcome this initiative", Ed de Boer, composer.
Sonolize fully endorses the Fair Practice Code for entrepreneurship in the arts and culture sector.

And before we forget, 1% of what we earn goes to charity. To help children make music.
Why? Very simple, because we think it is very important that as many children as possible learn about music in musiclessons at school and make music together. That's why we donate to the Dutch foundation "Meer Muziek in de Klas" (More music education at schools), that is committed to structural music education at all primary schools in the Netherlands.
