Hi, I'm Michelle! I am a Biologist/Trainer turned Singer/Songwriter/Composer for Film & TV, Blogger and Workshop creator! I created Licensing Songs Academy to help you to understand the world of Music Licensing and equip you with the information you need to write and license songs for Film & TV! It took me many years to learn the ins and outs of music licensing so I am here to shorten your learning curve! I also want to help you navigate obstacles and gain self worth!

In 2009 Michelle joined Taxi Music and learned about the world of songwriting and songwriting for Film & TV. A whole new world opened up for her. She also realized that she needed to deal with her self-esteem issues. “It was really shutting me down". And deal with it she did! Michelle feels like nothing can stop her now. She has gone on to release 6 albums and many singles, two of which were released by Black Toast Records! Her high profile TV placements continue to rack up. Here are just a few of her prime placements.

Michelle likes to give back, and using her training knowledge, her music experience as well as her personal experiences, She has created Licensing Songs Academy. Students in the Academy support each other through the music licensing journey. “I feel like my passion has met my purpose and I really feel great about it!
