Course Description

Please continue reading to see how I can help you make some money from your music in 2016.

Are you tired of having amazing music but nothing to show for it?

Are you getting frustrated trying to get placements?

Are you starting to believe that its no longer possible to live your dream and have the freedom to create music for a living?

Well this MUSIC LICENSING course is the answer you've been looking for!

This course will help you:

  • Secure credible music placements in TV & Film.
  • Actually make money from your music.
  • Gain respect from your peers, friends, and family.
  • Get peace of mind knowing that you can live your dreams and create a living from music.
  • And much, much, more!!

My co-instructor and I have both secured several placements with major shows and networks like BET, OXYGEN NETWORK, BRAVO, REAL HOUSEWIVES, and more! In addition, we get residual income quarterly from these placements and upfront money in the form of sync fees and in this course we reveal the game on how you can do this too!

Wouldn't you like the satisfaction of knowing that:

  • Your music is heard by millions of people around the world.
  • You are able to actually make money from your music.
  • All the hard work and years of blood, sweat, and tears trying to make a career doing music can finally pay off!

After taking this course you will be able to do that and much more.

Please Note: "If you are not serious about actually making money from your music please don't enroll in this course. We don't want to waste your time or ours. This course is only for music professionals looking to establish a real music business and long lasting career in the music business. This is not for anyone doing music as a hobby or just looking for information. This course for the ones who will take the course serious and actually take action. Our goal is for you to get placements in TV & Film and make real money with your music!"

The old business model isn't as effective as it used to be. People aren't buying as much music but one thing the general public does do is watch TV and movies. Millions of marketing dollars are being spent on these shows, and I don't know about you but I'm getting my piece of the pie!

Now if you're still not convinced, relax. This course is backed by a 30 day no questions asked 100% full refund of your money if you aren't satisfied for ANY reason with the information.

We are taking ALL the risks because we know that the information is current, valuable, and will effectively help you license your music to TV & Film companies if you apply whats learned!

So what are you waiting for? It's time for you to establish yourself as the music professional you know that you are and make some money from your music!

Instructor Biography

MUG$ Amillion aka Lee Evans The Write Hook, Music Consultant, Music Publisher, Songwriter, Entrepreneur

Lee Evans “The Write Hook”, also known as the recording artist MUG$ Amillion, was raised in the Music Capitol of the world, Nashville, TN, where he was introduced to the music industry at the tender age of 8 years old by way of being a background dancer for a local cover band. From there he grew into performing cover songs as a member of his own self-established group, followed by writing lyrics for original songs, and recording original music, all by the age of 15. After achievements as a local powerhouse performer and recording artist, Lee entered Nashville State’s Music Technology Program, where he developed an extreme interest in music publishing, songwriting, and the business of music. Shortly after graduating, he shifted both his musical passion and location to Atlanta, GA in 2010. Since his internship at Icon Studios ATL, MUG$ has established himself on a few different levels of the music industry through various roles, by becoming a songwriter, producer, music publisher for SESAC, BMI, and ASCAP, and more recently, a music consultant. He is an active Recording Academy member, serving on the membership committee for the Atlanta Chapter, and has landed current TV placements with BET as well as Oxygen Network. Furthermore, after putting together a very empowering and highly successful 2014 A3C Hip Hop Festival panel covering topics such as music publishing, music licensing, and songwriting to name a few, his willingness to educate more people of the business side to the music industry grew stronger. Being grounded by the bible book of Proverbs combined with a gift and passion for music and speaking, this well rounded artist was led to be a giver of what he has been blessed to receive through his experiences and education of the music business, thus we have The Music Industry Crash Course, better known as The MICC.
