Please Note: If you already have placements in TV & Film this will not be the best course for you. This course is for music professionals (recording artists, music producers, composers, and songwriters) that currently DO NOT have music placements in TV & Film but would like to learn how to get them. Also the results vary based on wether or not you consistently apply whats taught. We can not promise a quick fix, and matter of fact if you are expecting one this is not the course for you either. But if you are willing to learn and take the application (actually doing whats taught) seriously, you will be well on your way to getting placements. Enroll in this course if you meet those qualifications.

We’ll see you inside!
