Music Supervision 101

Music Supervision 101 The ultimate music for media resource.
MusicSupervision101 was founded by Ramsay Adams, Dave Hnatiuk, and David Weiss -- co-authors of the industry-leading textbook "Music Supervision: The Complete Guide to Selecting Music for Movies, TV, Games & New Media" (Music Sales, 2nd Edition 2017). The book has led to the creation of "Music Supervision 101" the online digital course (debuting 2019), and the music supervision service The SongHunters.

This website provides news, updates, and resources for anyone interested in music placement for all media, including television, film, commercials, online advertising, and video games. If you are a band looking to get your music placed, or a production company looking for music, this is the place for you!

Mission: To educate on the art and business of music supervision.
