WHAT TO EXPECT AT A NARIP MUSIC SUPERVISOR PITCH SESSION: 

PREPARATION IS KEY 

NARIP Music Supervisor Pitch Sessions are limited to an enrollment of just 16 people. About one week prior to NARIP’s Session, all registrants will get a brief of the guest supervisor’s then-CURRENT music needs. Each registrant will have a chance to pitch in response to the music briefs provided and get immediate feedback to music pitched. Each participant must submit 7 songs (MP3s only please) 36 hours prior to NARIP’s Music Supervisor Session. Please note that due to time constraints you will only be able to pitch your TOP 3 songs for consideration and immediate feedback (more, if time permits). This process takes the mystery out of why a piece of music does or doesn’t fit. On-the-spot feedback enables registrants to re-work tracks and re-submit, which creates a much higher probability to get them licensed (choose well!).

If you do not have music that matches the current needs of the supervisor, fear not! You can still attend and present the top three songs in your catalog.  Make sure the songs are unique and captivating. This is helpful because a music supervisor’s needs change constantly. To optimize impact of music you pitch at NARIP’s Music Supervisor Session, we highly recommend that you target the briefs. Good luck and see you there!

BEFORE NARIP’S SESSION:

  • NARIP prepares a one-sheet for each participant including your photo and bio for the guest music supervisor to use and review at the event, and to take with him after the event.  We will request your photo and bio one week prior to the event.  In preparing these materials, we recommend you focus on brief career highlights in your bio and have a professional photo available.
  • Approximately 5 to 7 days prior to NARIP’s Session, you will be sent a project brief describing several cues needed for a current project(s) of our guest speaker. These often include reference songs or links so that you can hear exactly what he seeks or needs to replace.
  • You will submit your tracks with writer, publisher and other rights holder information that will also be supplied to the music supervisor after NARIP’s Session.
  • You will get submission and meta-tagging guidelines, and mentoring as to how best to prepare your music for submission.

DURING NARIP’S SESSION:

  • You will get to play at least three songs (sometimes more, if time permits) for the music supervisor who will provide feedback to you for each one.
  • NARIP moderator asks very specific questions to help participants learn and understand how to modify their tracks to make these more place-able for the guest supervisor’s specific needs at hand.

AFTER NARIP’S SESSION:

  • NARIP provides guest supervisor with participant one-sheets and all music from NARIP’s Session, including notes detailing the guest supervisor’s interest in specific tracks.
  • If requested by guest supervisor, NARIP conveys additional tracks, remixes, instrumentals etc. to him.
  • If approved by guest supervisor, NARIP provides his contact details to registrants.

DON’T GET LOST IN THE CROWD :  SMALL IS THE NEW BIG

NARIP Sessions are deliberately kept small and intimate, which is just one reason they work so well and why participants have enjoyed over 500 placements to date. Limited enrollment of 16 people per session guarantees that registrants meet and get face-time with our guest.

Our small format works! NARIP Session participants have placed over 500 tracks as a direct result of NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions.  Other benefits include new publishing deals for NARIP members, creative collaborations and co-writes, strategic introductions to other music supervisors and placement experts, new representation for composers and much more.
