Placing Songs in TV, Commercials, & Film - Sunday 11/10 Class 1 Only Pass - Lindsay Wolfington

Class begins Sunday 11/10 with special guest Music Supervisor Lindsay Wolfington. This one-night-only pass allows you to attend both part 1 overview presentation and part 2 coaching and gives you the chance to submit for her current project(s).

If after class 1 you choose to enroll in the full class, you may. Half of this fee can be put toward the tuition (and you will owe $549 for the entire course). 

Learn from some of TV's top Music Supervisors, Publishers, Licensing Houses, Songwriter/Producers and more, all about how to write, prepare, approach, pitch, and license songs to television, commercials, film, games, and more.  In this unique interactive class, learn from the other side of the desk about how best to build the catalog, relationships, and business acumen to place your songs in the various media.  

Class will include regular feedback sessions with music supervisors, publishers, placement houses, producers, and accomplished/placed artists. There will be real pitch sessions and assignments designed to help you write and re-write for film, tv, games, and commercials.
