Are you a songwriter who’d like to create music for TV and Film, but you don’t know where to start?

Do you think the word “composer” means you have to know write charts and program orchestral music?

Would you like to find out how TAXI members are making tens of thousands of dollars a year extra income, when they have day jobs, families, and all kinds of “adult responsibilities?”

Would you like to know the secret to making a six-figure income from doing Instrumental Cues? Yes, there are more people than you’d think who are doing that!

Would you like to know what kind of recording set up you’ll need, and how inexpensively you can get in the game?

Would you like to know what to do the first time you sit down to start “composting?”

Would you like to know how to choose the structure, length, chord progression, melody, instrumentation, sounds, and moods for the Instrumental Cues you create?

Would you like to know if different types of Cues work better for some types of shows than others? We’re not just talking about the genres – there’s more to it!

Would you like to know how think about the emotions you’re creating? There are several types of “happy,” and even more types of “sad.” We’ll teach you how to know which kind you should be writing about!

Get the answers to these and many more questions I’m going to ask Steve Barden on TAXI TV! Steve joined us last month, and we got a lot of requests to bring him back!

I’ve got to admit, there was a lot more I wanted to ask him last month, so I’m really happy he’s joining us again!

Steve’s a multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, piano, violin, and many other stringed instruments. His music can be heard on TV somewhere in the world on a daily basis, and he’s had placements on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC Family, A&E, American Heroes Channel, Animal Planet, Biography Channel, Bravo, The Cooking Channel, Discovery Channel, E!, Food Network, Game Show Network, HGTV, Investigation Discovery, Lifetime, MTV, National Geographic Channel, Oprah Winfrey Network, Outdoor Channel, Oxygen, PBS, Science Channel, Style Channel, SyFy Channel, TLC, Travel Channel, truTV, Univision, VH1, and many more.
