    ●Mini Crafting The Tune 🔥 - Limited Spots

    Since early 2021 What Up Pitches has been hosting "Crafting The Tune", a 4-week immersive workshop where artists & producers create a song under the guidance of music supervisors & the WUP team.

    For our in-person event, we will have a Mini Crafting The Tune where music supervisors will come in and share their active briefs. You'll be divided into groups to create songs for these briefs. By the end of the day, you'll have a chance to present your song-in-progress to the music supervisors, the WUP team and your peers, and it will be signed exclusively to What Up Pitches, LLC for them to pitch to their clients. You will also receive feedback from the music supervisors. More info on our website

    ● Co-write sesh

    Co-writing, creating, songwriting, and having fun! You'll be given some briefs and you can decide who you want to co-write with! We suggest working with new people because you never know if you'll meet your next partner in sync crime.


    THERE IS SO MUCH MORE! Check out our website to find the most up to date information, check out the past panelists/guest speakers and connect with us directly. Please let us know if you have any questions. We can't wait to see you there!
