NEW VIDEO about the class:

"I took the licensing class from Ed about 3 years ago and it was filled with enough information to keep me busy for the past 3 years!  Ed explained in easy to remember terms the different licensing options and how the music libraries work.  He also introduced me to TAXI which is a great way to be able to get your music out there.  I also had a hour consultation with Ed to fill in the blanks about how to get my songs registered with BMI/ASCAP, and Ed knew all the details.  I highly recommend going to Ed's classes and take the time for a one hour consultation for specific questions or guidance.  Thanks Ed!"  Chet

"I attended your class this past Saturday and wanted to express my thanks. it was very informative and well worth my time. I look forward to your newsletter and your book when it comes out.  Your work is a valuable resource to us artists and songwriters." Dion

"Thank you so much for the information, and for sharing your personal musical journey!  I really enjoyed the class, it was fun, and I look forward to participating in other learning/training opportunities you may offer." Tina

"Thank you so much for the wonderful class! You share such valuable information! And the time went so quickly!  I had a great time. So glad to have your emails and such...  It was fun hearing your experiences and your work!"  Angela

"Thank you for sharing your experience with us. You exceeded my expectations by detailing a clear path to break into the world of TV/Film placements."  Bob

"I took Ed's seminar last fall, and because of the information presented. I got a contract with a major music library."  Daniel

"Your class opened my eyes to a lot of options and opportunities I didn't realize were available or accessible.  My number one take away from your class was that I have to take my recordings seriously. All this time I was happy to leave that job to the pros who know what their doing. Now that I see I have all the tools necessary to do it my self I have no excuse but to start learning the recording aspect of it all."   Andrew

"Thank you for the very informative course. Gave me lots to think about."  Dan

"I just wanted to say thanks.  It was a very informational and inspirational class, and I really enjoyed it." Eric

"Thank you for a wonderful class this morning.  Great job!  You presented a ton of material and I was surprised at how the time flew.  I appreciated your receptivity to questions and the way the class continually flowed smoothly.  I was able to stay engaged with the material the entire time!  I am so glad that I came."   Elizabeth
