Success Stories and Testimonials

If you want to be successful selling your music on royalty free libraries, then I really recommend this amazing course. You learn how to get your music into a library, how to prepare your tracks with metadata and most importantly, where to upload your music to generate sales and making a living with stock music.

Also you can find useful information how to place your music to be used in TV, commercials and YouTube videos.”

– Frank SchlimbachComposer (Germany)

I’ve been composing and selling stock music for a couple of years but haven’t been selling with the frequency of really successful composers. After subscribing to Daniel’s podcasts, I realized I had a lot more to learn—that’s why I signed up for his course.

More than just another course about stock music licensing, Daniel takes you on a stock music licensing journey.

Daniel’s course digs deep, offering a vast amount of solid information about how to market your music, and he teaches his methods in easy-to-understand language in a simple and straight-ahead manner.

He uses samples of his own music tracks and takes you through a step by step process covering the creative process, offering composing guidance, uploading your track, finding libraries, etc.
There’s also a great section on mixing techniques and mastering.

I’m becoming a better stock music composer and producer because of this course!

My career isn’t that long, I started to focus on production music in mid-2020 and before that I mostly played around with mixing as a hobby and experimenting with my DAW just for fun making the occasional “stock music” just to try how it worked after discovering Daniel’s YouTube channel.
I decided to take his course in 2020, he clearly knows how the market works and what to do.
To my surprise I got much more than what I expected, he showed me anyone can do it if you work hard and the course helped to simplify down all the information that’s going around. What to do and HOW to do it, it’s been a huge help.
His constant support through email and video chat is a 200% motivation boost to keep trying, the music industry isn’t easy.
Amateur, semi-pro or professional musician, this course is a huge hand for everyone that wants to make money with their creativity.
Not exaggerating when I say his course and knowledge are a life changer for me, as a musician in Argentina making a living with music is really hard (and generally a no-go) and Stock Music Licensing gives me that chance.

Hello Fellow Songwriters, and Composers!

My name is Patrick Gudmundson. I am a songwriter/composer from Seattle, WA. USA. I have been playing music most of my life, and recently decided it was time to build my home studio.

But now what? While researching ways to make money with my music, I ran across The Stock Music Licensing Academy. I found Daniel’s passion, integrity, and real support of fellow musicians appealing, so I went for it!

The Ultimate Stock Music Masterclass took me step by step through the entire process! From the actual song construction, mixing, mastering, and through the registration/upload process. The course kept me feeling confident all the way through. Well, after following the course, I waited for my reviews and…. I was accepted!

I’m now selling my music on License Free Libraries. I couldn’t recommend a better program to get you on your way! Thanks again, Daniel and of course.. Here’s To Your Success!

Patrick Gudmundson

I was having trouble with mastering my tracks. The info on the web was overwhelming–so much complexity and various techniques. Using all this it was taking me hours to master.

So I went straight to the mastering section of the course. What a breath of fresh air! Daniel removed all the complexity. Now my mastering is quick and perfect for my Stock Music tracks.

Rick Butz

I got Daniel’s course in august, 2020. As a musician for nearly 40 years, live work and touring isn’t something i want to do anymore. So, i decided after watching Daniel’s YouTube channel, I’d try my hand at royalty free music. At first, it was a challenge going from songwriting to this style, which is very direct and to the point in a few bars as possible.
Yet, Daniel’s course taught me a great deal about his process, and how to include it in my own. His module on mixing has been incredibly important, as it has helped my mixes immeasurably. The email support i receive from him personally is worth its weight in gold. I’m able to pick his brain, share tracks, and get his expert opinions on where i might try to focus, and where to steer clear.
I cannot recommend his course enough to anyone starting out in this passive income market. Daniel stresses being yourself, bringing your skills to the table, maximizing your strengths, and never, ever giving up. It might take you months to get sales. But, in the end, as long as you follow his course, you will learn more with each track, and become a better composer, musician, engineer and your music CAN make you the income you want.

Daniel’s work is truly remarkable! His passion to help the music licensing community with his courses, videos, podcasts and most of all his charismatic positive view on things to keep you focused and positive on your goals it’s something I respect very much and something I believe many other course instructors don’t have up to this level.

I was thinking for some time to join The Ultimate Stock Music Masterclass as I am composing stock music for some years now but I could feel something is missing to get to the next level and I wasn’t sure if it is really going to help me further more. But after joining the course, work on it and give it sometime to see the results I found out many details on the course that made the whole difference for me!

Already after couple of months that I watched the course and follow Daniel’s instructions, slowly but surely I have much better results with my sales, presentation of my items and way less track rejections. In such a short time all that happened and this is success to me and Stock Music Licensing is the real deal!

Most of all personally I want to thank Daniel for his continuously positive content that especially in difficult times like this I believe he has created an amazing place of inspiration and empowerment for many of us to focus on our content and have the patience to stay on track with our work so we can be more successful. From the bottom of my heart thank you Daniel for everything you are sharing with us and keep creating amazing content!

El curso de Daniel Carrizalez me ha sido de gran ayuda, como músico quería introducirme al mundo de la música de librería, pero no sabía por dónde empezar debido a la cantidad de librerías que hay y el proceso diferente que tiene cada una. Con este curso aprendí a entender bien cómo funciona este mundo, sus tiempos y sus pro y contras. Lo recomiendo 100% para todo aquel que esté interesado en subir música a este tipo de plataformas.”

– Angel Madero

I’ll get straight to the point: without Daniel’s tips, motivation and invaluable guidance I would not be seeing the same results and success that I’ve achieved. If you want to take your stock music to the next level and be a successful stock music composer, get his course!”

– Jake Schneider (JAS Music)Composer & Producer at JAS Music Ltd (United Kingdom)

I’ve seen a few courses online advertising production courses and stock music licensing coaching but what made me choose Daniel’s courses was his detailed knowledge and willingness to help.

Daniel is knowledgeable, approachable and genuinely wants to see his students progress. He always breaks things down in a way that is easy to digest whether you’re experienced in this field or a complete beginner.

I’ll be continuing to use Daniel’s services/coaching and would highly recommend his tuition to anyone interested in this area of work.

Daniel Udall

This training is the best way to get started on making a passive income from your music!! I went from no sales to my very first sale on pond5 just by applying the proper edits to my music and also applying the proper way to upload my music.

This is a very important investment in yourself if you really want to learn the details on how to make passive income from Pond5 and AudioJungle! Anytime I had a question Daniel Always replied back providing guidance and never left me hanging! The word thank you can’t express how much I’m grateful and thankful for all your help!

William Pires

This is a great course, covering everything essential that’s needed for starting a business of selling music on stock libraries. It helped me a lot to get the picture and find my path. Although I collected a lot of free information on the web, there was confusion, insecurity, and doubt if I’m missing something essential. Starting this business without guidance, by trial and error, can be tough and frustrating

. I’m very thankful that I found Daniel, his course helped me to get missing information and make everything organized in my head, so I can focus on making music. A very important part of the course is Daniels personal online coaching – professional, very friendly and motivational. I recommend this course!”

Mingse Chen

“Daniel’s Stock Music Licensing Academy taught me everything I needed to know about writing stock music and how to be successful at it. Before I enrolled in this academy, I was overwhelmed and had so many questions about producing stock music such as the composition and orchestration process, mixing and mastering and wondering what kind of music should I write? Daniel’s academy took me through every step one at a time and answered all the questions I had. He also created a couple of courses showing composers how to upload the music to Pond5, Audio Jungle and even how to register with BMI. His academy was above and beyond what I expected and gave me the knowledge, confidence and drive I needed to start writing and become a successful stock music composer. 

Melyssa Jewell

Did you think just because you knew theory, or were advanced on your instrument you were ready to make high quality stock music? I know I was in that position.

Daniel provides clear direction on what stock music should be, how to mix and master your music and one on one direction to help get you in the zone. I was over playing and over producing (coming from a gypsy jazz background) and Daniels program has been invaluable to me beginning my stock music licensing business. If you are serious about getting into stock music and are fortunate enough to have found this program you don’t need to look any further. You can peruse YouTube for thousands of hours to try to piece together what Daniel has already done the hard work of compiling into once place. This is a ONE STOP school long program to kick start your Stock Music Licensing business. Are you ready?

– Chase Haggarf

“I had been following Daniel on YouTube for a time as I had started to delve into stock music. I’m so glad I bought the course, it has saved so much time and energy. If I’d have tried to do this alone I’d have made many of the mistakes his course helps you avoid. He is such a good teacher and as you’ll see from YouTube, he’s just exudes a great positive outlook. 

I’ve started to see sales and growth in my portfolio that wouldn’t have been possible without investing in this course. Thanks Daniel!”

Stuart Goldsmith (Lexfiles Music Production)

Stock Music Licensing is a class act for getting into music publishing . If you find it a painful task getting into these libraries such as AudioJungle, Daniel’s course is designed to guide you through what can be a daunting process. I also found the tutorials on mixing and mastering and arrangement to be clear, concise and very insightful. You will definitely learn so much from this course if publishing or producing music is going to be the choice for you. 

Gaz Keenan

“Great teacher with a lot of easy and understandable information. Everything explained from start to finish.

Marv D’Amato

This is a MUST have course for whoever wants to get started selling their own Stock Music.
Be a Master composer by learning from a Master!
Great course, Daniel!

Ricardo Soares

I first thought this would be easy, I had a lot of music and could write well in many styles, but after uploading song after song and had many rejections I started loosing interest and thought it’s not for me obviously. But then I found Stock Music Licensing and my educational journey began. It’s a whole new head space and a different way of thinking and I needed guidance to start getting on the right track.
I would highly recommend this course.
Thanks Stock Music Licensing

Tim Skedden

What can I say? This course covers it all plus more and Daniel is so helpful with every question that I have had. This is a must-take course if you want to make some money selling music. Highly recommend!
