In 1994-95 we have produced 64 TV Shows and have been on the air some 389 times with the viewing of 5 channels in Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Westchester. We go into 1,700,000 homes in our area through public access TV.

Your support is essential for us to be a real organization and being a real part of the community. We really cannot understand why we do not get funding? What is wrong with our society?

We ask you to take on the responsibility of helping our children and society too. There just are too many evil and selfish influences in our society and another viewpoint is needed. We stand up and fight for standards other than mechanical and flash standards. We need standards in our society that are real.

Notes to Creative Music Productions Inc. Financial Statements

Liquidity, Stability and Profitability The Liquidity of CMP is very strong. Because, the long term liabilities have been agreed by all parties to wait to receive payment for their products and services. The relationship to the creditors, ownership and the financial statement gives proof to the creditors that their property and services are being protected. However, CMP must protect the true value of the corporation and the creditors too.

 The stability of the business to meet its principal payments and requirement on outstanding debt is protected also, because CMP never understates any proposal or activity with a person, company, or other party without coming to an agreement of what the conditions and responsibilities are with the transaction. We have been in business since 1975 and have had no problems with the stability of the corporation. Our only problem has been capital to promote the business.

 Cash CMP is a company that is a non-profit organization based on services, goodwill from the employees and officers and for many years has been in a research and development stage. The profitability will come when we are really able to market our produc ts to our state, country and world. Of course, this will depend on the corporate, federal, state, city contributions we will receive.

In the last two years, CMP has been expanding its fund raising activities and has contacted over 50 organizations for contributions. However, this is a slow and painstaking process.

Assets The analysis of our financial statement is exciting when you look at our music library (the foundation of our organization) and groups that exhibit the real value of our organization. A service industry is hard to value because of the subjective nat ure of it. CMP's products services are of the highest artistic presentations in music. We are sure the true value of our products and services are 10 times greater than stated.

The determinations of the value of our assets and groups are based on the time, effort and musician's union value and not on their true value. In our changing times what are the true value of anything The CEO of one corporation may receive 75 million and another receives 225 thousand. When it comes to works of art, is it the same value for everyone puts in the same amount of time for this is truly a subjective decision? The true value of our library, musical groups is a very conservative figure.

The only real comparison and measurements that can be made from our financial statements from year to year are the new compositions our musicians and performers create. Time put in on each member desire to improve and be a better artist, which is di fficult to place a value. One song if marketed in a proper context could be worth millions although we do not compose songs of that nature.

We have matured as an organization in the last 10 years please read "Creative Music Productions Presentation" for our goals and activities for more information.

Our true value is our ability to present artistic presentation of instrumental music that represent American Musical Fine Art.


Deferred Salaries

 This is fund raising activities: grant writing, interviews, research, organizational work, travel and unpaid performances, etc. This in no way has any effect on any grant proposal offers currently standing or past. These fees will be paid only from CMP's funds from work related activities and not from granting institutions.

Long Term Liabilities Effective April 79 the Company entered into a credit agreement with the promissory notes that no payment of dividends was necessary until CMP was able to create an income and profit. This agreement has been an on going determination with all creditors since that time.

Interest on debt is to be determined when at the time the corporation's fiscal activities will be on a sound bases. In reality, there is no interest on debt.


 We owe no income taxes, retirement funds, insurance debt, or any other debts. We are not in any litigation.

Creative Music Productions Inc.

To Whom It May Concern:

 As CEO, Fiscal Officer & President of CMP Inc., Greg Waters, states that on, January 31, 1995 that CMP has disclosed all its operations, earnings and financial position for the fiscal year then ended. Upon examination our records according to genera lly accepted accounting standards, and we accordingly included such tests of our accounting records that meet the procedures that we considered necessary in these circumstances.

In our opinion, the aforementioned CMP's financial statements present fairly the financial positing of this organization.

Always, we have taken a conservative position for the fiscal year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis.

Creative Music Productions Inc.

 Presents The Music Show and The Children's Music Show

 New York, New York

 Your Host Mr. Greg Waters The Children's Music Show

 As one art's manager said, "We can do anything we want." This is the tune of today which is really not a turn! This show is to explain what music is and how we can come to some conclusions of what a standard is in music. The Department of Education on, Regents, The State of New York and the Regents System is working with this idea for the 21st Century. How can we meet the needs of the 21st Century? CMP is working with the idea how can we really keep real musical standards in music?

 What are standards? And how do we judge standards? This is a very difficult situation in that each individual has different standards, but let us work to come together to explore more about music and standards. This show is to show to you boys and girls, Mothers, Fathers, aunts and uncles that to enjoy instrumental music you have to know something about it and that it is fun. Instrumental music is interesting to learn about. The more you know about music the more you can appreciate it for what it really is. The Department of Education wants you to take more responsibility for your education. They are now trying to change the system so that you can take more responsibility for your own growth. This is what the music show is all about, giving you some more background on music so that you can make decisions for yourself. This will be done just by having more information and by having more experience with music. But remember music is a science of quality not just some media tool which is what we have mostly now in our world. Music was not made to sell a product, but music was given us so that we may have standards in life and achievement in life.
