Here is another inside scoop straight from the top.

There is a lot of stuff online talking about how to get your music into TV & film. I’d rather get my advice from the people who actually do it or have had proven success doing it.

Music supervisor, Valerie Biggin, appeared on a recent song pitch for our class in our course “The Art Of The Song Pitch”.

The cool thing about our song pitches is our students actually get to meet the supervisors LIVE online.

Doing this instantly kickstarts those first few critical relationships at the top of the licensing industry. It makes the inaccessible gatekeepers suddenly ACCESSIBLE.

I thought I would share a short clip of this interview with you right here. It will help you keep moving in the right direction to start syncing your songs.
