SYNC OR SWIM MUSIC
"You're closer than you think"
Hi, I'm Robbie Hancock and welcome to Sync Or Swim Music Sync Clinics! I am the owner an operator of The Sync Or Swim Music community 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
A big part of what I like to do besides making music for sync licensing is to give back and pay it forward to you 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) about once a month to help you navigate the sync world and spend some quality time in a small group of your sync peers to go over topics to help you educate yourself more in the world of sync.
I hope you will consider joining us at the next clinics coming up. Thanks for your time and looking forward to seeing you online. Please don't hesitate to send me any questions below before or after you sign up and I will be happy to answer them promptly. I hope to see you soon!
“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)
"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".
- Teporah Bilezikian Singer/songwriter - Baltimore, MD. USA
"Robbie's knowledge and experience of working in music for film and T.V. sync licensing is proven, as are his methods. His approach as an educator with soul can truly help your raise your ability to get your music into the industry so you can make it your living. Nothing in the music industry is easy, but with Robbie’s direction and relationship based approach, you too can build a business making music in this exciting field." - Stewart McLellan - guitarist/engineer Sooke, BC. Canada
"Robbie ' s clinics are very educational and in a very personable way. Even though I am 4000 miles away from him, I felt I was right there in the room with him! I'll be attending more for sure!" - Linda Cullum Musician/composer (Vermont, USA)
"Whatever your experience level in the world of music for sync, you'll get something out of attending one of Robbie's clinics, whether it's technical hacks; practical tips on being organized and efficient; pitching to publishers; or just enjoying the fellowship and camaraderie and making new contacts. Robbie has great instincts for how to make a Zoom experience fun and engaging. His stories, suggestions, and concrete examples are interesting and helpful. He has even opened his DAW to show people how he constructed cues and songs that have been placed. I really enjoy his open, genuine, and welcoming style." - Wenda Williamson - Ohio, USA
