Please Note: If you already have placements in TV & Film this will not be the best course for you. This course is for music professionals (recording artists, music producers, composers, and songwriters) that currently DO NOT have music placements in TV & Film but would like to learn how to get them. Also the results vary based on wether or not you consistently apply whats taught. We can not promise a quick fix, and matter of fact if you are expecting one this is not the course for you either. But if you are willing to learn and take the application (actually doing whats taught) seriously, you will be well on your way to getting placements. Enroll in this course if you meet those qualifications.

We'll see you inside!

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.
