Starting with a dream...

I, like you, grew up with a passion for music and dreamed about making my own music for years and years. Problem was, nothing seemed to pan out. I didn’t know anybody, songs didn’t come out sounding the way I wanted…. and frankly I was tired of the grind.

Still I knew the dream was there. Every day I woke up and it seemed like a mirage in the distance, unattainable. Friends would ask me, “Oh how’s that album doing?” And with a wistful gaze I would say “Yea, you know I’m getting it out there.”   The half-hearted smile didn’t fool anybody.

Then Everything Changed.

And so for YEARS I had been talking about finding my big break but I didn’t know how to do it. Now, I want to tell you what I did and what I learned. Did I go $40K into debt like my friends did going to technical schools? No. I’m sure college parties would’ve been a lot of fun but I doubt they would have been $40,000 worth of fun to me.

No, what happened to me was that I got coaching from a professional producer. I met Jimmy Douglass, who worked with everyone from Arethra Franklin to the Rolling Stones to Jay-Z.  He showed me how to get things to sound the way I wanted…and more importantly, how to make a living in music, not just do it as a hobby.

Today I realize how important that coaching was to my career. My only wish was that I could have found it sooner, but back then there wasn’t a way to just meet someone working with big names in music. For most people it’s still a very difficult thing to do.

But now, for those like me I’ve created a shortcut...

And that shortcut can help you...

  • Realize your dream of making music.
  • Learn how to make a living from it so that you can ditch your 9 to 5 and pursue your passion full time.
  • And get the coaching you need from an experienced, Grammy nominated music producer like I did.

Imagine This...

I’ve spent the last couple years putting together this music producer bootcamp.

I took everything I learned and condensed it into an 8 month course. I simplified it down. I amplified the focus on the career because the goal is to make a living with your passion. I brought in guest speakers who are earning a living making music too. And what I’ve done is put together a coaching program that will move you closer to your goals.

No Tricks...

Will it guarantee you produce the next smash hit single? Of course not. If you want someone to guarantee success, then meet Jay-Z at a party and convince him to write your next song. But for me, I wanted to know how to produce my own music, how to make a living doing it and have coaching from someone who’s done it.

So I’d like to invite you to join this music producer bootcamp. Now do you have to? No, you could wait years to finally meet someone in the business like I did.

Or, you could spend $40K on a technical school that doesn’t teach anything on the business side. That student loan paid back over 5 years comes out $740/month. And that’s 60 payments!

Or you could keep trying to learn through youtube videos and handing out your mix tapes to your friends and family. Maybe that will work for you...

But ask yourself this...

...And be very honest: Have you been talking about your passion for music for years and things still have panned out? If so, it’s time to make a change.

You don’t need an expensive associates degree. What you need is coaching from a professional music producer and THAT is what we’re offering. Let me take the best of what I know as an experienced producer and help you make the music that’s inside of you, give you the coaching you need, and help you stop putting that dream off until tomorrow and start working on it today.

How does the 30-Day Money Back Guarantee Work?

This is not a situation where you sign up for something, miss half the sessions, then ask for a refund and get it. Your local community college doesn’t offer that deal and I don’t either. The deal is, you watch each coaching session and you implement what we teach you.

Refunds are for those rare cases (and they are very rare) when for some crazy reason, someone doesn’t doesn’t see results after applying the entire course. We don’t claim to know everything, and we can’t fix everyone's problem. But as you can see from the testimonials, we’ve got a lot of really happy artists and music producers who have been coached by us. If you’re willing to do the work, we’re willing to guide you.

You can cancel your membership at any time. However, refunds are only available to those who have completed the program, implemented the coaching, and didn’t see results.
