The majority of my composer income comes from a non exclusive library. At least I have a chance of placing tracks elsewhere.

This whole thing of doing music for no upfront payment used to be good business and as Amber says there are exceptions but the price paid is a whole lot of trial and error.

In some ways I think I would recommend getting an additional job, maybe in a gigging band and then continue to get better and better until someone wants to pay.
