Kudos to Cathy and Sonnet for putting together a great class. My sister, who registered first, told me about it. We run an indie record label and recording studio here in Hawaii, and I am a composer/producer/songwriter. Those of us who create music for a living are always looking for ways to learn and grow, and the class gave me a big push into areas that I wouldn’t otherwise have explored. The tools that Cathy and Sonnet teach are great – really useful both in the art and the business– but one of the biggest surprises for me was the terrific network of amazing talent that emerged in the class. The class members have become an international community of like-minded artists all collaborating and helping each other’s careers. Pretty amazing…

I am so blessed to have been introduced to Six Figure Songwriting with Cathy Heller. Over the course of a year, I have connected with and collaborated with several songwriters and producers, and created music that is unlike anything I have written in the past.

Cathy introduced us to agents and music supervisors who have listened to my music, given me personal feedback, and some have even accepted my songs and have been pitching them to directors. Cathy has spent years developing relationships and building the trust of the gate keepers to the film, tv and ad agency. In her class, she generously shared all she has learned with us.

There were times over the course of the year when I wanted to give up, and right at the perfect time Cathy or her VP, Sonnet would post a Facebook live video with the exact words I needed, reminding me to turn around my negative thoughts and have faith. Sonnet, was amazing at checking in everyday, answering our questions, encouraging us and educating us. She kept our group close and was a huge part of why the class was so special.

Since class ended, I have a much better understanding and grasp on how to work smartly (rather than spinning wheels) toward my goal of being a full-time songwriter for sync licensing. Some of my fellow classmates and I have a smaller focus group where we give each other feedback, and set up cowriting sessions, and share contacts/pitching opportunities. Talk about empowering the people!

I absolutely love Cathy Heller and Sonnet, they shine brightly on this planet! For me, this was a game-changing/life-changing class.

Taking Cathy Heller's class has really opened my eyes to the possibilities open to songwriters. I had always vaguely heard about writing for ads, film, and TV in the backdrop, but never actually explored this area at all or knew how to get into this particular field. I heard from a friend who was taking this class and I decided to join as well. I'm so glad that I did! I had been writing "artist songs" for a long time and that's what I knew, but this class really taught me how to write for sync, which is a completely different kind of writing. Now I know what to do and then what to do with my song once it is finished. I've also connected and cowritten songs with other wonderful and talented members of this class and it's been a pleasure to create songs that you know will work for this market. There's no guessing. It's all laid out for you and very straight forward.....a musical map! Then, you apply the creativity, grit, research, persistence, and hustle to get it done. There is such a wealth of information in this class and it's inspiring for me to listen to Cathy's webinars and Listening Sessions all the time. She's kind, warm, helpful, and constantly cheering you on. Both Cathy and Sonnet are consistently and constantly working to provide current and up-to-the-minute information. They truly have their pulse on this industry. I am and I will continue to create many marketable and sync-friendly songs through this course. Be open to learning a new approach music, work hard and apply some musical elbow grease, commit, trust the process, and you can do it too!
