What’s the Method?

The Method is about your music and getting it up to market standards. The quality of writing, recording and mixing needs to be at least as good as your competition because that’s what the market and your fans will be expecting. Work on becoming just as good as your heroes and start your own company while your’re doing it.

Then, take things “one step” further and find your own Unique Selling Point. Show the world who you are and why clients and fans need to listen to your music.

How I Can Help?

I decided to make myself available as a coach for musicians, composers and songwriters. Why? Because I get dozens of emails every week by musicians asking me for advice. Help and advice both musically and business-wise.
Most questions are about my music, my clients and the company I have successfully built by composing for brands, events, shows, tv, movies, commercials and product launches. And ever since I released my book “The Corporate Music Method” the stream of e-mails and questions got even bigger.

Questions such as:
“Can I do this kind of work too?”

“How do I get clients?”

“How do I write for a brand?”

“How much time do I have when I get a composing job?”

”How much money can I ask?” 

“How does it all work with music rights?”

About me

I’ve been successfully working with the biggest brands worldwide, composing for film, tv series, events, shows and artists for 15 years now, I can probably say I’m the # 1 Product Launch composer worldwide. Writing my book the “Corporate Music Method” and having years of experience as a coach, teaching Songwriting and Media Composing at ArtEZ, Institute of the Arts, has taught me there is a big need for a new business model. A model where creative musicians can make a living on their own, without the need of old-school record companies and publishers. The old ways simply don’t work anymore since Apple, Spotify and YouTube have changed the rules….However, these changes also mean chances for those that are really serious about their music! I have successfully built my company based on such a model; the “Corporate Music Method”, and now it’s time to share this knowledge and experience.

Some of my musical highlights: Over 15 years of experience writing for the biggest brands worldwide including Nike, Philips, Bentley, Verizon Fios, KPN, Times Warner, MTV, Bentley, Delta Airlines, AON and hundreds more. Music for the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Cirque du Soleil, Moscow State Circus, I have even worked with Pink! and Shakira. Composing and recording every BMW and VW product launch worldwide for more than 10 years now. Shows and performces in over 40 countries, a long collaberation with DJ Fedde LeGrand, the inauguaration of the biggest ship ever build “The Pioneering Spirit” and Formula 1 racedriver Michael Schumacher has even danced with his car to my music 😉

The Method made it possible for me to write music for the dutch King, the Tour the France, write tango’s, dance, rock, pianomusic, metal, ambient, trailer, film music, classical, dubstep, ballet, games and mix it all up! It gave me the chance to perform in many faraway countries and make musical friends all around the world. Using the Method I realized over 30 tv commercials on US television and many more worldwide and got my songs featured in dozens of tv series like The Mentalist, Pretty Little Liars, Ben&Kate and Parenthood. I was lucky to play on many albums of great artists and I’ve released multiple albums myself over the years. My music is now featured on more than 200 albums, all available on iTunes and Spotify.

However, the most important thing is; I did it all by myself!  You really can be successful with your own music without the help of record companies, publishers or agents…
