The group will be all about diving deep into the exciting world of sync licensing and production music.

Artists can expect to get a firsthand look at how to navigate the ins and outs of sync, from checking out real briefs to crafting music that hits the mark. Plus, I’ll give them the chance to work on projects from the past to really get a feel for what it’s like.

We’ll be covering all sorts of music production techniques for different genres, so whether they’re into pop, rock, electronic, or something completely unique, they will learn ways to produce, and produce quickly. We’ll also chat about the music business side of things and how to network like a pro in the industry. I’ll be all ears for what they want to learn, so they can shape the direction of our sessions.

To support the artists in their growth, I’ll provide actionable tasks and tips to help them level up their music game. Whether it’s honing their sound, perfecting their mix, or making those important connections, I’m here to guide them on every step of the way.
