What People Are Saying:

This has been awesome and it's just the beginning…. I’ve learned to be the centre of a community (not a distant superstar) , that the 'story' is AS important as the content in engaging an audience and that anything is possible. My musical career has gained momentum mostly because of the strategies you have helped me put in place to engage an audience, build my network, and plan my future. So, THANK YOU for helping me sort out a way to pay the bills with a career in music, and for helping me to think outside the box. This is the life I want, love and cherish, and I wish the same for everyone else.


This has been so refreshing. The training is intelligent, heart driven and serves the demands of an industry in flux. These empowering techniques have been a real foundation for us. Dave correctly nailed the genre that we are running with for the song I Am Light (Celestial pop) which is currently finding a home on Top 40 radio formats in 15 countries and growing.


This training teaches you everything you need to know to locate your own clients and have your music properly prepared to submit to them, thus bypassing extraneous gatekeepers along the way. The very same music that gatekeepers rejected is now earning thousands of dollars for me yearly because I learned to locate and deal with end users, music libraries, and music supervisors.


The licensing program is AWESOME! I’ve taken other licensing courses and that there is no comparison. This gives you all the tools you need to get organized and submit your music and increase your odds. The community alone is worth the price of admission. It’s great to have someone in your corner.


Four of the seven tracks I sent made it into the TV show! I’ll tell you, when I turned on the show and heard the first song … almost lost it. Lol. Told my students at school, and they watched it too. Really can’t say thanks enough for everything I’ve learned! I'm grateful for you taking the time to even listen to my songs. The caring and integrity you showed to me adds up to all of the great things I've heard about you from others.


My biggest improvement this year came as a direct result of integrating the Checkerboard A/B machine into my workflow. I use this tool every time I mix and every time I mix my ear gets better. It also improves and regulates my confidence level and creates a "home" to return to if I ever get stuck. It's truly a life-changing system.


One of my LoFi songs (Le Bleu) that started out as an Aquarium Reef submission for TEAM that I developed further has had 100,000+ streams on Spotify and another one of my LoFi tracks (Firefly) has now over 75.000 streams on Spotify. I have also followed and successfully completed a course for Mixing & Mastering – my fellow students were all very experienced professionals. Thanks to my training through TEAM, I managed to follow the very steep learning curve and I am now a certified mixing and mastering engineer.


I was recently contacted by one of the top 20 trailer music libraries in the world, and another big trailer music library is interested in working with me after I sent them my music. Both companies want to collaborate with me, and possibly license my music if the opportunity arises. TEAM helped me with those wins in many ways. The TEAM process gave me the confidence that I can create professional sounding music in my own home studio, that can compete with music that's recorded in high-end studios. Before I joined TEAM I was struggling to mix and master my own music, but the TEAM process cut my time learning it in at least half (if not more). The detailed critiques on my music helped me quickly improve my ear and become my own critic. Being part of a community within the music industry, lead by a professional with a lot of experience, is also very helpful.


I totally love being part of this. The courses have directed my steps and I thank you for all the personal info you have given me this year. It has been very valuable. The program is great and confirms what I want to do.


My mixes have improved a lot as a result of TEAM, and through the MasterMinds, I have a much better understanding of what music supervisors and editors require. I have also found that taking the TEAM approach of networking through helping another human being has brought me opportunities in my music career.


Since working with TEAM, I have had two production albums signed to two different music libraries. The first album was an acoustic guitar folk album, and I was able to get my production quality to a licensable level by applying acoustic guitar production techniques I learned by working with TEAM, and also by doing a lot of A/B'ing, which I learned from TEAM. I have more recently gotten a classical music production album signed to a music library and I feel like a big part of that success was applying music theory to my writing, which I started doing since working with TEAM. I feel that TEAM has contributed to my success primarily through showing me production techniques, emphasizing the application of music theory to my writing, and teaching me the checkerboard A/B process.

This system, and approach to life, has increased my quality of music and my life in numerous ways. I’m making better music, better money, and increasing my competence and confidence regularly. I’ve always wanted to write for media/films, and just in this last month I landed my first job writing the entire score and doing sound design for a documentary film. With my newfound skills and confidence, I know it will be the first of many, and the entire TEAM process (of which Vice Watch is the first and very important part) has played a vital role in my recent success. I will forever be grateful to Gary Gray, and the entire TEAM organization, for helping me reach my goals and realize my dreams.
