    About our Distinguished Instructor
    Lindsay Wolfington has deservedly earned a place among the A-list of Music Supervisors for her work on shows like Ghost Whisperer, The Sing-Off, The Client List, and others, but it is her work on the acclaimed One Tree Hill that established her as a taste-maker in her industry.  The show ran 7 seasons, yielded three soundtracks, won an ASCAP Film & Television Award as the Top Television Series, and helped launch countless acts to national awareness.  In addition to helping secure on-camera performances from big names like Sheryl Crow, Nada Surf, Michelle Branch, and The Honorary Title, she demonstrated her negotiating acumen by licensing Led Zeppelin, who famously have turned down most film and tv licenses otherwise.  She is a remarkable resource and an experienced teacher who has been training aspiring music supervisors at USC, UCLA Extension, and Loyola-Marymount.  She has taught a 6-week class at The Songwriting School twice previously. And she both appeared as a special guest in the free Forum series in 2011, and was a class member in the class Vocal Coach Lis Lewis (whose clients include Rihanna, Miguel, and others) taught called Community Chorus. The Songwriting School of Los Angeles is honored to welcome her back.
