It's Your Time To Shine!

Attend our Revolutionary Pitching Sessions focused on music for Film, TV, Ads, and Video Games!

 

Pitching Sessions like no other in the music industry! 

You will work with Billboard charting, award-winning Music Producer, Engineer, and Voting Member of The Grammy Recording Academy Gary Gray, who specializes in production for sync licensing, and a panel of seasoned industry professionals like Wendy Griffiths, award-winning accomplished senior level executive with 35+ years of experience in music, sync and video marketing, and Pamela Liptak, a veteran from the Los Angeles entertainment community who has worked for Paramount, CBS, UPN, Fox Broadcasting Company, Warner Bros. Discovery and carries over 35 years of entertainment industry experience. 

(Panelist bios and session schedules below).

We take the time and the care to listen to your ENTIRE TRACK from beginning to end. And even more importantly - we want to get to know you and what your goals and strategies are so that we can help you achieve them. Music Licensing is a people business. Don't forget that. In this "short attention span" hectic world of over-the-top technology and advertising and sales pitches and promises of making you "rich and famous," no one else takes the time and delivers the care and attention that we do. Yes, we have to pay our bills just like you, but we're not here for the money - we're here to sincerely help indie musicians navigate their way through the often confusing world of music licensing to find true confidence and success.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT OUR REVOLUTIONARY PITCHING SESSIONS!

 

Note that we offer two different session formats - a Springboard Session (panelists will listen to and provide feedback for one song for each participant) and the longer Elite Session (panelists will listen to and provide feedback for up to four songs for each partcipant!) See the schedule below to learn which sessions are offered each month.

Total Session Time: 2 Hours. You will be present for all of the critiques and learn along with the other  participants. You are encouraged to network and collaborate with other attendees. Learn valuable insights and gain an incredible education from the entire 2-hour event!

Alloted time for you to personally network and present your music: You will be able to personally interact with the panelists for 5 minutes in the Springboard Session, or for 20 minutes in an Elite Session. Your entire track/s will be listened to from beginning to end or you can create a "reel" with several tracks edited together.

You will also receive valuable feedback and if your track is a good fit for a current or upcoming project, your track will be accepted for submission right then and there. Create a good impression. Get your face and your name remembered. Success in the Music Licensing world is all about relationships!

Format: Zoom (you will receive your Zoom link after you sign up)

Revolutionary:¬†The track you choose to present will be played all the way through, from beginning to end. No skipping around like in other ‚Äúlistening‚ÄĚ sessions. We employ the AudioMovers ListenTo plugin, used by film industry directors & composers and owned by Universal Records and Abbey Road Studios for pristine quality playback. We own the plugin - all you have to do is click on a link and you have access to pristine quality playback!

Share your complete intention, full musical message and the entire flowing emotional impact of your track with serious industry executives who are in a position to help you with your music career and licensing opportunities. Receive live constructive, helpful feedback - and if your track fits an ongoing or future television, film, commercial or video game project, your music may be chosen for submission right then and there!

Recommended for: Indie Musicians who are interested in getting their music into film, TV, or video games, and Indie Musicians new to the Music Licensing world who want to network and learn more about how to get their music licensed.

What you need to do to prepare:¬†For a Springboard session, you will submit one track in mp3 format (320 kbps) of 3 minutes in length or less (or a 3 minute ‚Äúreel‚ÄĚ of more than one track - short sections of each track chosen by you, smoothly edited together one after the other).¬†For an Elite session, you can submit 4 tracks (or a mix of tracks and a "reel")!

Testimonials

 

“I loved being a part of the very first session with Wendy Griffiths. Pamela Liptek and Gary Gray.  Each team member hosting the session brought their own strengths and expertise to the table to give useful, detailed and valuable feedback.  What was very different from most sessions was the ratio of artists/producers to the feedback team.  There were only 5 artist/producers getting feedback from 3 people in the industry. 

‚ÄúThis dynamic allowed time to share more music and to have a more intimate, less rushed experience.¬† It was really great.¬† I am definitely looking forward to attending more of these.‚ÄĚ

 - Lisa Dunn


"Great session. I will say I am a bit overwhelmed with emotion. Such braveness today from the artists in sharing their personal stories and vulnerability...I may have a good cry because it was that moving. Great stuff!

- Pam Liptak, TEAM's In-House Award-Winning Sync Agent


 “The small group session was ideal in that each participant was able to get personalized feedback on their song(s) which is invaluable. The honest, yet caring insight allows for introspection and growth towards whatever musical goals one may have. From Gary's moderation of the session to Wendy and Pamela sharing from their wealth of knowledge in the sync world, you can only grow from this experience and time of community. Prepare yourself, your music and your mind to give of your best and receive the same in return. Thank you for giving us your time and attention today. Looking forward to what the future holds. 

Warm Regards,"
