My Story. . .

For years I was a songwriter just like you.  I wanted my songs to be on TV.  I knew I could make more money with writing music instead of roaming the east coast in a van packed with 4 dudes and a bunch of gear, scraping by to earn gas money.  

Unfortunately everything I wrote sounded like my favorite music (pop-punk). This limited my ability to write in other styles and get placements on any shows. I found myself teaching guitar to supplement my income. 

In the back of my mind I still held on to the dream of being a songwriter. I almost gave up on my dream until. . .

I started to notice that there were certain shapes and patterns on the guitar that showed up across every genre of hit songs that I was teaching my students.

I worked out a system to easily write music in any style.

IT WORKED. I started getting placements. 

Fast forward to today:  I used what I created to write for other artists, license my music for TV and commercials, and earn a living as a musician.
