What You'll Get
At the age at which most children learn to speak, Mozart had already composed four symphonies, restored 11 classic cars, and built a robot to play against in squash. Catch up to Mozart's accomplishments with today's Groupon from Nashville Demo Studio. Choose from the following options:
- For $12, you get a written songwriting critique from industry professional Chip Hardy (a $25 value).
- For $50, you get a one-hour mentoring session and songwriting consultation with an industry professional from the Music Row Mentoring Program (a $100 value).
- For $250, you get a Gold Demo 1 package including a male or female vocalist, band accompaniment, and three CDs featuring a full mix, TV track, and instrumental mix of your song (a $500 value).
Drawn from the industry's top musicians and executives, Nashville Demo Studio unlocks the chord-based formulas to make hearts melt and fists pump with songwriting critiques, mentoring, and demo-recording services. Written analyses from accomplished songwriter Chip Hardy help transform half-spun ditties into verse-chorus-verse powerhouses. Boasting a gig bag full of tunes performed by Dean Martin, Reba McEntire, and Conway Twitty, Chip will incubate not-yet-famous scribes with the same surefire advice he gave Loretta Lynn when persuading her to abandon twelve-tone black metal.
Alternatively, amateurs hankering for a face-to-face mentoring session can avail themselves to a Music Row executive’s assistance during the course of an hour. After poring over up to three of the mentee's songs, one of a stable of industry vets will convene a one-hour conference with the budding tunesmith in person or via phone, webcam, or one of the studio's ultra-high-powered microphones.
For fully-formed songs, the Gold Demo 1 package helps present a polished impression to labels, publishers, artist managers, and flash mobs looking for a new tune to dance to. The package includes a preproduction setup with a producer and engineer before session musicians lay down male or female vocals and rub buttery guitar, bass, and drum flourishes all over the studio track. In about a week following the studio session, customers receive three mixes, all copyrights to their song, and an outline of a recommended Grammy speech.

About Nashville Demo Studio
When Nashville Demo Studio speaks of its team of hit songwriters and industry professionals, it is no idle boast. Company president and showbiz veteran Jimi Whitelaw oversees a staff that includes Will Rambeaux—who has worked for Faith Hill, Trick Pony, and American Idol—and Billy Montana, whose recent collaborators include Lee Greenwood, Kenny Chesney, and Martina McBride. The studio also supplies instrumentation, vocals, and recording opportunities while leaving copyright ownership and distribution rights firmly in their clients’ hands. Though the stable of musicians skews to Southern-fried genres, they can also ably handle pop, R & B, and countrified interpretations of whale calls. All services are available both in person and online via Skype.
