In Atlanta – Producing Hit Songs

You are invited to NARIP’s
Producing Hit Songs

on Wednesday, November 12, 2014
at SAE Atlanta in Atlanta, GA


NARIP welcomes Grammy Award-winning Matt Still, Billy Hume and Bradford Rogers to discuss how to produce hit songs and develop artists to recognition and commercial success. We will also discuss the winning skills of the best producers such as emotional intelligence and n-studio psychology (how to get the best out of an artist) that create the environment in which great music can be made.


The producer’s role is vital in finding, shaping and guiding talent in the studio, and from there ultimately into the marketplace. Get an insider’s peek at the economic and artistic realities of the fastest-changing, hottest business in the world and don’t miss this intimate and interactive learning experience with top music producers.


Seating is limited, priority will be given to NARIP members.


NARIP Members Get Feedback To Music From Guest Experts. A limited number of NARIP members have the opportunity to have one (1) song played live at our event to receive direct feedback from our guest experts. Only NARIP member material will be selected to receive feedback (one submission per member).
