    It is legal,

    but you should copyright your material like anyone in the music business would.

    Consult a copyright attorney near you for advice and assistance.

      If you created the original work of authorship, then it is (by definition) already copyrighted. You may optionally register your copyright ownership in the USA and a few other countries, if you really think it matters.

    Since you own the copyright to all the material, its perfectly legal.
