Music Licensing Course: Get Your Existing Tracks Placed In TV/Film

 

MUSIC-LICENSING-COURSE

Aaron Davidson took my advice and lengthened his music licensing course to 180 days. This gives students more time for improvement, placements and negotiating time with music supervisors and licensing companies.

The original 90 day music licensing challenge was good, but a little frustrating because most of the companies took 30-60 days to get back to you.

Course Opens July 6th. Sign up today and receive additional bennies

 

180 Music Licensing Challenge Course

What’s Included In The 180 Day Music Licensing Challenge:

– One hour of phone 1 on 1 consultation with Aaron
– Monthly Conference Calls
– Daily Licensing Leads
– Training Videos
– Email Coaching
– Member’s Forum
– Facebook Group Coaching (weekly)
– The 2015 TV And Film Directory
– Advanced Music Licensing Strategies
– The A To Z Of Music Licensing
– 20 Bonus Audio Interviews
– And more!

What I’m Offering On Top Of Aaron’s Course

Aaron is offering some great value here, but there needs to be more, so here’s what I’ll toss in to those who sign up within the next 2 weeks

– Unlimited track reviews
– Unlimited 1 on 1 consultation
– 20 extra leads (I use personally)
– Google Hangouts Meetings
– Advanced Lead Generation Strategies
– Music cue editing techniques
– Full access to my membership program

So, essentially what you’re getting is help from 2 experienced music professionals instead of one and as many 1 on 1 meetings and resources you need for the the duration of the course.

  1. Let’s talk

    • Sure thing, shoot me an email. Contact information is here on the site.

  2. Most of my song writing is done with the assistants of Loops & samples.
    All these are my own or third party Royalty free loops.
    How does this effect my illegibility for being accepted by industry professionals? Does all music have to be recorded live?
    Are most song writers useing loops to fill in?
    Before I join this course & spend $300.00 I would like more information on this Important point. If you Have any resources on this matter I would be very thankful if you might pass them on to Digest. Yours truly, Doug

    • Hi Doug,

      “Most of my song writing is done with the assistants of Loops & samples.
      All these are my own or third party Royalty free loops.
      How does this effect my illegibility for being accepted by industry professionals?”

      The practice of using illegal samples is a no no.

      The acceptance of utilizing royalty free loops comes down to the person reviewing and or using the music. That’s ultimately in the client’s hands. Back in 2000-2003 Royalty free loops were floating around everywhere:

    • Production houses
    • Music supervisors
    • etc
    • It’s now saturated with loops users. Production houses and in house producers have access to all the loop libraries, so for you or any other producer to come in using what they already have is not a good idea. Most are clearing the junk and going for authentic material only especially when it comes to working with someone new.

      Not to mention, royalty free does not protect anyone from being sued.

      Another crucial aspect of this is how the royalty free material is being used.

      “Does all music have to be recorded live?”

      Live as in, ‘on stage’ or in ‘real time’ no, it does not.

      “Are most song writers useing loops to fill in?”

      I don’t understand this question, would you mind elaborating?

  3. THANKS so much for the quick response, Almost unheard of. Are most song writers using loops to fill in? YES your right that is not being very specific.When I hear Movie scores,tv commercials, songs on the radio,Game noise & Game tracks & any other none Live Music coming out of a speaker system, How do we know it’s someone playing this from an Instrument into a D.A.W. or Loops already purchased with the D.A.W. or third party loops? Many Loop makers have there kraft down so well even a trained ear has trouble making the determination. If some loop maker sells you loops & you purchased them with serial numbers & have proof of this purchase Why sue? I am a singer song writer with a small home studio with out a lot of musical contacts & limited funds. I work a full time day job so I can afford the electrical components needed to operate what I have. Hiring experienced musicians & Fitting a drummer into my seen has been tried & without success. This has come down to ME,MYSELF & I, DIY MUSIC. I’m sure you’ve heard this all before. Is there another way out of this MAZE? DOUG.

    • Hi Doug,

      “THANKS so much for the quick response, Almost unheard of.”

      not a problem my friend.

      “When I hear Movie scores,tv commercials, songs on the radio,Game noise and; Game tracks and; any other none Live Music coming out of a speaker system, How do we know it’s someone playing this from an Instrument into a D.A.W. or Loops already purchased with the D.A.W. or third party loops? Many Loop makers have there kraft down so well even a trained ear has trouble making the determination.”

      I think our lingo of ‘live’ may be different. It’s ok to load up instrument packs and play out your own melodies, chords etc. Using loop packages, depending on the client, is not ok. It’s not about trained ears knowing what is a pre-made loop and what isn’t, it’s about “do we already have this or have we heard it before” As explained, these industry professionals making the decisions have every single loop library out there and they get them before the public does. They also get submissions from countless people using libraries, so the sound gets old fast.

      Now, the reason you may still hear loops in placements is because many companies held onto their old tracks and keep re-using them. I have dozens of tracks i made in 03 that still find there way in movies, commercials and ads today that used royalty free loops. These same supervisors/companies will not take anymore like that from me today as they want more authentic material.

      Picture this – When they hit play on your material and here the loop being used or sections of it, they say to themselves… “Why pay for this when we have access to it already?” Not to mentioned these libraries have already been abused over and over and over. Companies seek out new composers for something new, not something they already have.

      When I worked for a studio, I had access to the entire Sony Library Collection. Actually, there wasn’t a library i didn’t have access to.

      “If some loop maker sells you loops and; you purchased them with serial numbers and; have proof of this purchase Why sue?”

      Because they can, it’s a business. When I signed my TV deal, they put my contract “no royalty free libraries” because there are too many issues with them. Proof of purchase on your royalty free loops means nothing in court.

      “I am a singer song writer with a small home studio with out a lot of musical contacts and; limited funds. I work a full time day job so I can afford the electrical components needed to operate what I have. Hiring experienced musicians and; Fitting a drummer into my seen has been tried and; without success. This has come down to ME,MYSELF and; I, DIY MUSIC. I’m sure you’ve heard this all before. Is there another way out of this MAZE? DOUG.”

      No problem, you don’t need to hire live musicians, you just need to compose your own material. Hopefully this response makes a bit more sense.
