Here's what past attendees are saying.
"I learned more in Silas Hite's workshop than I did in five years of college. Whether it was techniques used to write music for media or practical knowledge about the industry/business, Silas' workshop left me better prepared for my future and more confident about my career path." James Newberry
From working effectively with clients, to navigating various types of contracts, to how to specifically tailor a piece of music to meet a client’s needs (even when they’re not explicitly spelled out), I learned things from Silas’ workshop that I was able to implement into my freelance projects immediately (quite literally the next day, as it turned out). Furthermore, Silas also took the time to get to know each student taking the workshop and advise them based on their level and where they were in their careers. I went into the workshop knowing I could write effectively, but not quite where to go with it. I came out with a much clearer path for myself." - Jordan Kilpin
"For me the CSW was a great and encouraging experience. The sessions are loaded with tons of very valuable information and practical tips. No time is wasted. It is definitively a good resource for composers and musicians wanting to seriously get in the scoring business. Silas does a great job teaching the workshop and developing a personalized career path to get any composer's foot into the commercial music's door. I highly recommend it." - Mauricio Gasca
This course is full of tips and tricks on how to score what the client demands, with hands on composition of an actual commercial and 1 on 1 critical input and direction from Silas.
I learned how the business operates and how to approach music houses and other target clients I was not aware of. This is by far one of the best courses you will ever take, the content is simple, clear, and to the point - the instructor knows his ****. The layout of the course and assignments are well thought out and you can ask him anything and get the best answer. And you also make a great friend and contact in the biz :) Wish I heard about this years ago..." - Constantin Phillipou
"I can't think of another way to get that much valuable information in such a short amount of time. The scope of information I received in each class was amazing. I'm truly thankful that I had the opportunity to learn so much about the business and commercial scoring from someone who clearly knows it so well!" - Seth Cohen
"Great workshop for getting hands-on experience scoring TV commercials. I learned a lot of very useful information on how to present my talents to the world" - Nils Hoglund
"I felt like Silas really cared about all the attendees. I felt like he was not there just to take the fee for the workshop. Great information for the Pro or the beginner. I really enjoyed it."
