Crack the Code! Music introduces two new training courses ($695 each) for aspiring film, television and commercial music composers, including classes entitled "Writing Music for Film," "Television and Video" and "Writing Music for Commercials and Promos." Each course focuses on three essential areas—business, creative and marketing—that are essential for media composers to learn for success in the music business. This mentorship-based program provides students with the benefits of a real-world learning environment and one-on-one instruction with an assigned professional working composer. Students gain invaluable experience during the course of 10 writing assignments (most to picture) and receive a detailed critique of each lesson.

Each course includes more than 400 pages of instructional materials, with in-depth discussions on the business of music production, setting up a studio, negotiating, contracts, the PROs, royalties, job pay rates, unions and residuals, licensing, marketing, demo CDs, composer interviews, the whos and hows of contacting production companies, ad agencies, producers and directors, and much more. Also included are both VHS and Quicktime/AVI versions of actual film/TV/commercial/promo clips (with SMPTE timecode) to work with, and a CD-ROM of forms and documents.
