NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions

Intimate Meetings & Pitch Sessions With Music Supervisors
from Top Ad Agencies

Session #1 with Young & Rubicam's Jessica Dierauer
on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 is

at Shelter Island Sound in New York
(Space for remaining sessions still available)


What do Jessica Dierauer, Jean Scofield, Mike Boris, Josh Rabinowitz and Ryan Fitch have in common? They are all special guests at NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions at Shelter Island Sound in New York.

Representing the best and brightest in music supervision at the top ad agencies in the world, these six seasoned executives select, commission and place (and in some cases, create) music for global advertising campaigns for the world's most recognizable brands. In NARIP’s intimate sessions, you get to meet and pitch them for current opportunities.

Come meet these career-makers.


NARIP members have made placements through these limited enrollment sessions, including most recently Peter Kimmel who placed a song from his catalog ("Soul of a Man Never Dies") in an episode of True Blood following our session with Gary Calamar earlier this year in Los Angeles. The episode with his song airs July 31, 2011 and you can read more about it here.

Placements secured and professional relationships formed through these meetings are so good that we felt this format would work well for those who represent catalogs and/or seek intimate pitch opportunities with the best (and busiest) ad agency music supervisors in town.

Limited to 15 people, NARIP’s sessions enable you to get to know the supervisors and more importantly, enable them to get to know you. At private sessions in Los Angeles, participants were able to pitch for current opportunities on the spot, receiving instant feedback as to whether a song was appropriate or not, and WHY. This valuable feedback makes better pitches – and ultimately, placements – possible. In some cases, participants even had time to re-work their music to better fit a supervisors’ needs.

Above all, attendees MET key players in the modern music business, paving the way for future opportunities and giving them an edge in a highly competitive market.

At each session in New York, participants will have the opportunity to pitch music for specific opportunities and get immediate, direct feedback from one ad agency music supervisor.
