"Michelle has opened up my limited view of the music business to a whole other level. Now I'm pitching and building a great catalog comprised mostly of cues. I never thought cues would be a part of my agenda but it is and I'm very grateful for a new view!"
- Kimberly Yarson
"After writing and performing for many years I wanted to get to understand the Film/TV/ licensing synchronization industry. Michelle's course has helped me to do just that and has already yielded some good results. Michelle's instruction is clear and concise and relaxed and friendly. I would encourage anyone who is serious about understanding how it works to sign up. Well worth it."
- Jason Mark Yates
"The course made me focus and be disciplined in my approach to writing. It gave me a new perspective and appreciation for writing to a theme with a short turn around time for completion. It is a challenge to get rid of proper nouns and yet keep strong imagery. The course got me listening more to the music supporting a scene on TV and in ads and really breaking down the "why" of how that piece of music worked. My new motto now is stop dreaming and start being. For me that means, thinking and creating as a professional. Many thanks!"
