Need new ways to make money from music? A pandemic proof career you might have overlooked is composing from home, including making music for film, TV and video games. The demand for digital media is higher than ever before and so now you can future proof your career and enjoy a stable income.
Protege is a one of a kind online music production school that starts in September and brings together the combined expertise of multi award-winning composer and producer team, Richard Schrieber and Vikram Gudi. Gudi and Schrieber have made music for Netflix, Apple TV, Amazon Studios, Warner Bros, Fox Searchlight, HBO, Activision, Google, IBM and Mercedes Benz – now you can follow in their footsteps.
Six engaging hand-crafted modules, complete with direct weekly feedback from the tutors, provide all the tools needed to build a successful career in the music industry. The modules will last five weeks and each year the course will be tailored to fit the demands of the industry. This ensures students will only ever learn what is relevant, making it more likely to place their music.
Budding composers and producers have the chance to gain access to the duo’s industry network to further a pupil’s success in achieving TV and film placements, which is unique for music production schools. With Protege, you can earn money from your music whilst studying and beyond graduation.
Protege co-founder, Richard Schrieber, is a globally recognised multi award-winning composer whose credits include the official trailer for Amazon Prime’s Hunters, HBO’s The Outsider and countless international clients (Google, IBM, Mercedes-Benz, Chrysler).
Schrieber comments: “The problem with most music schools is that they don’t teach anything about mindset. There is often a distinct or complete lack of real-world projects, with no direct or tangible professional opportunities to match an individual’s initial investment. We wanted to make a difference to people’s careers by pooling our knowledge to help those wanting to crack the music industry.”
Protege co-founder, Vikram Gudi, is a multi-award-winning producer, music industry entrepreneur and leading sync specialist. He is the co-founder of Split Music, and founder of Mammoth Audio and Elephant Music, which has many high-profile placements including A Quiet Place 2, Morbius and Apple TV’s The Banker.
Gudi says: “It’s a really tough time for everyone, but there has never been a better moment to maximise this special opportunity to compose from home. We hope to inspire a new generation of composers and producers by teaching them the formula to establish stable careers from music.” He continues: “We’re grateful to this industry that’s given us so much and we hope the free week trial will inspire pupils and open their minds to what’s possible.”
The school, which will accommodate 100 pupils per year, will consist of a flagship course that will run parallel with the school year from 7 September 2020. Each term will have weekly industry briefs set for pupils and every brief will have a specific set of learning objectives and will be supported by its own course and workbook.
The pupils will be given the chance to respond to any given feedback and the tracks will be produced and finished with Schrieber and Gudi. Composers will be granted direct access to publishers, labels and libraries, and their completed compositions will be sent directly to the biggest names in the trailer, film, TV and gaming industries.
This A&R process is the core of the course; training aspiring composers to become professionals by putting them in real world situations during the process. The students will form part of the school’s buzzing online community, which is accessed through an online app, where they can upload tracks and receive feedback. The app will give the students access to all the course content, forums and groups, and will be the centre of the learning process.
Upon completion, the students will have a high quality and varied portfolio of at least 30 pitch-ready tracks, real world experience working directly with a music library and a certificate and an invitation to join the Protege and Elephant Music Creative Family.
