“I came to so many realizations during Robbie’s Sync or Swim Music clinic. His analyses and conclusions make so much sense yet had never occurred to me! His kind and gentle sense of humor lightens the time together and he is never boring! I highly recommend his clinics to anyone interested in stepping up their sync recording game!

Leslie Ellis - Grammy award winning vocalist (Nashville, TN, USA)


Hi, I'm Robbie Hancock and welcome to my Sync Clinics!  I am the owner an operator of Sync Or Swim Music and I'm also a singer/songwriter, composer, producer and music supervisor with 1500+ placements in TV, Films, Documentaries and Commercials.  You can watch and listen to some of my recent credits HERE and check out my bio HERE.

A big part of what I like to do besides making music for sync licensing is to give back and pay it forward to help you become more successful in the sync music industry.  This page is dedicated to clinics that I offer (and offer sometimes with my industry pro mentor friends) to help you navigate the sync world and spend some quality time in a small group of your sync peers to deep dive into topics to help you educate more in the world of sync licensing.

I hope you will consider joining us at clinics coming up as they are announced.  Please don't hesitate to send me any questions via the form at the bottom of this page and I will be happy to answer them promptly.  I hope to see you at my next clinic!

"No matter how long you’ve been on the Sync journey, there are always several juicy tidbits to be found when you attend one of Robbie’s Sync or Swim Music clinics.  His “sounding contemporary” clinic wowed me with some simple truths:  Playing with your DAW’s eq, compression, and reverb are all ways to make almost anything sound contemporary.  Robbie shows you how he did it, simple clear and great.  Thanks Robbie, nicely done"

Carl Wurzbach - Composer / singer-songwriter (Staten Island, NY, USA)

"Robbie is an excellent clinic facilitator and masterful at creating a safe and positive meeting environment. I left the Sync or Swim Music clinic feeling motivated to write more, write better and continue to build my catalogue. I will definitely attend other clinics Robbie will offer on Sync and other music industry topics." -

MIke Regimbal - Producer, Composer, Performer (Victoria BC, Canada)

"Robbie Hancock's Sync or Swim Music clinics are OUTSTANDING! He deep dives into successful cues to explain what works and doesn’t work. He also provides attendees with a realistic look into the world of sync - what to expect, what not to expect.  His insights have helped me navigate a recent licensing opportunity of my own."

- June Biancalana Musician/Composer (Utah, USA)

"Robbie Hancock really knows the industry of music for film / TV. He has been through the process himself -the composing, the learning, the making mistakes, the waiting, the rejections... And also the huge successes! In these Sync or Swim Music clinics, he is willing to share all of this knowledge and he genuinely wants to help other composers. Thanks, Robbie! I learned a lot."

- Veronica Pellegrini, Puerto Rico

"My biggest takeaway was how you used EQ to manipulate  the strings to create an atmospheric sound. I wasn’t able to absorb everything that you taught because it was so packed, but there were so many gems and I loved being able to see what a fellow pianist did to create music that’s had amazing placements!  This gave me confidence to continue building my solo piano and piano/cello library".
