🎬 Want to Compose Media Music for a Living?

Here's a tough lesson that took me over a decade to learn:

Good music does NOT get you work.

(I've coached hundreds of composers, and almost ALL of them write music that's good enough to get paid for.)

There are thousands of composers like you who are writing great music. But getting paid to compose requires a different set of skills.

If you're serious about pursuing composing full-time, there are three more skills you need to master:

  • 🤝 How to build a network of industry connections who trust you enough to hire you
  • 📣 How to market your skills online so potential clients are attracted to your work
  • 🔎 How to create and discover job opportunities that AREN'T on job listing websites

As much as you love to compose, focusing ONLY on your craft limits your ability to transform it into a career.

Mastering your networking, marketing, and pitching skills is what will separate you from the thousands of other composers like you.

And that's what this Bootcamp is all about. ✅

Enroll in my Composing Career Bootcamp for a 6-week crash course FILLED with every skill, strategy, and tool I've ever used to go from a music hobbyist to a full-time media composer.

You've got lifetime access to 60+ exclusive lessons, weekly livestreams, time-saving templates, and ongoing support in our Student Portal.

By the end of this Bootcamp, you'll walk away with the knowledge, tools, and support you need to start getting paid for your music.

🤔 How Much Does The Bootcamp Cost?

Enrollment in the Composing Career Bootcamp is currently $997 USD. You can pay it all at once if you like, or enroll with our 0% interest payment plan.

(We also offer a 30 day money-back guarantee if for any reason you're not satisfied with the course.)

Consider this...

The average cost of a semester in a U.S. music college is around $10,000 USD.

My goal is for you to walk away with the essential skills and tools to help you earn MORE than the cost of your enrollment (without dealing with student loans).

Enrolling in the Bootcamp is a short-term investment designed to pay you long-term rewards.
