Cohort 4 Begins September 30th. 🗓️


😓 Tired of Feeling Confused? I Was, Too.

Let's face it - getting to compose for a living is your dream job.

Up until this very moment, you've spent all of your energy on your craft - making music, taking composing lessons and courses, and buying VSTs to prepare for your journey.

But you've also been AVOIDING the business of how to get paid to compose.

Without a clear path, you're struggling to know...

  • 🔎 Who to contact
  • 👋 How to get yourself out there
  • 🗓️ What to do on a daily basis to see results

And here's the scariest part:

You feel like you're running out of time to figure it all out.

If that sounds about right, I feel your pain. 😖

Even though I spent four years practicing at music college, I still lacked the career guidance I needed to make my dreams a reality.

(The best gigs I had after college were teaching piano to kids and playing at a local church in my hometown.)

Sure, I was paying the bills - but I wasn't doing what I LOVED.

I dreamt of a profitable composing career, filled with amazing clients and exciting projects.

But nobody had prepared me for the painful obstacles I'd face along the way:

❌  I couldn't find any composing work
❌  I lacked confidence in my music

❌  No one answered my emails

❌  I hated feeling "sales-y"
❌  Nobody listened to my portfolio
❌  I had no clue how to talk money

And until I could overcome these obstacles, I'd never be able to transform my dreams into reality.

But after 10 long years of frustration, mistakes, and trial-and-error, I finally figured it all out...

And once I did, my career skyrocketed. 🚀

In 2022, I made over $80k from my music and could officially call myself a full-time composer.

Now, I get to wake up and spend every day doing something I truly love.

But what if I told you that you could get there way faster than I did?

What if I told you that all you needed to achieve your goals was:

  • 💡 A handful of simple but powerful strategies
  • 🎯 A clear, step-by-step framework
  • 🙋‍♂️ Proper guidance and accountability

With all this, you'd start landing clients and getting work in WEEKS - not years.

With all this, you'd be unstoppable.

Introducing my 6-week 🎬 Composing Career Bootcamp.

Through this program, I'll give you all the skills, tools, templates, and systems you need to expand your network, market yourself online, and attract your dream clients from anywhere.

You'll finally have the confidence you've dreamt of to see a clear path towards your composing career future.

You'll build meaningful connections with composers from around the world to offer support, encouragement, and friendship.

And best of all...

You're going to start having fun working ON your business instead of IN it.
