: : Once the music is "fixed in a tangible medium of expression" it can be copyrighted.

: : That is, if the music (lyrics and notes) is written down as a composition and/or recorded as a sound recording, copyright protection can be sought via application to the U.S. Copyright Office - Library of Congress.
