Our Book:

Music Supervision: The Complete Guide to Selecting and Licensing Music & Sound Design for Media

Music Supervision: Selecting Music for Movies, TV, Games & New Media

Available at Amazon.com

 

"This book had a direct impact on my career. From the multiple books that I have read on building a career in the music industry, this book is the most eye opening, informative, and useful of them all. It is akin to taking the brains and experience of fifty music industry vets and inserting them directly into your head."  –Adam A. Johnson


"Thank you for writing the Music Supervision book. I am a singer/songwriter, but wanted to better understand the perspective of music supervisors, and this book definitely helps me to do that."
Jared KF Jones
