SMALL IS THE NEW BIG

NARIP's small sessions (limited enrollment of 16 people per session) guarantee face-time with our guest, registrants get brief of supervisor’s CURRENT music needs, a chance to pitch plus immediate feedback. You get to meet and pitch our guest for current opportunities on the spot, receiving instant feedback as to whether a song or cue is appropriate or not, and most importantly, WHY. This feedback makes better pitches – and ultimately, placements – possible. Participants even have the opportunity to re-work music to better fit a supervisor's needs.

Placements secured and professional relationships formed through NARIP"s music supervisor sessions have earned praise... and placements! See TESTIMONIALS below.
