The Most Common Trait of Sync Success

There is one thing that all musicians who are successful in music licensing have in common. There are some obvious ones like being a good songwriter and producing music that sounds as good as everything else getting into TV & film. But what is it that allows them to get sync after sync compared to a one-off or none at all.

There is one single trait that they all have that impacts almost all of us in some way every day…

The Best FREE Resource For Licensing Is Back...


It's that time of year again. We’re kicking off our free "The Art Of The Song Pitch Workshop".

A lot of people tell us that this video series is THE best out there for sync. Our members have told us they can't believe it’s totally free.

Check it out now.

You will learn WHY most musicians fail at music licensing, WHAT works in the sync world, and HOW to target your music for TV & film.

Inside Scoop From Another Music Supervisor

Here is another inside scoop straight from the top.

There is a lot of stuff online talking about how to get your music into TV & film. I'd rather get my advice from the people who actually do it or have had proven success doing it.

Music supervisor, Valerie Biggin, appeared on a recent song pitch for our class in our course "The Art Of The Song Pitch". 

The cool thing about our song pitches is our students actually get to meet the supervisors LIVE online.

Doing this instantly kickstarts those first few critical relationships at the top of the licensing industry. It makes the inaccessible gatekeepers suddenly ACCESSIBLE.

I thought I would share a short clip of this interview with you right here. It will help you keep moving in the right direction to start syncing your songs.

AMAZING advice from a top music supervisor

We had top music supervisor, Chris Mollere, on one of our live song pitch sessions last week. In our online course, The Art of the Song Pitch, our students get to pitch their songs to a panel of top music supervisors and Chris was one of our guests.

He has worked on a ton of TV shows and indie movies, such as Get Out, Kin, The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, The Originals, Famous In Love, and so many more.

He not only gave everyone his direct email address to our course members during the pitch, but offered some incredible advice for songwriters in the interview portion.

We wanted to give you some great insights by sharing a short clip of that interview here.

How To License Your Music To YouTube

Have you ever heard of micro-licensing? This is the newest way to get your music out there fast and get paid for it. I managed to land William Nix who is the senior music supervisor over at Rumblefish for an exclusive interview. The complete interview is for our members of The Art Of The Song Pitch, but I wanted to share a part of it with the community to show you how easy it is to get in on the action in micro-licensing.

Big News!

We've been a little quiet lately.

A few interesting things have happened in the meantime:

    - We had an awesome extended vacation in British Columbia, Canada

    - We bought a Catalina 42 sailboat and are moving onto it in August

    - The music supervisor pitch sessions have started for our latest class

    - We changed the name of our company...

What?!  New name?

Yup, we always felt "Make Money From Your Music" was a good name to start out with, but knew we'd eventually come up with something better. 

So what did we decide on?

Drumroll please...

"Sync Songwriter"

From now on everything you receive from us will come from "Sync Songwriter". We feel it defines our community a whole lot better, and it doesn't hurt that it's easier to say either. :)

Hope you like it.
