Eric L'Esperance - Musician Turned Pro Producer

Audio Issues Student Interviews
Eric L'Esperance - Ash & Eric
11:24
 

When Eric first joined us in 2019, I was struck by the quality of songwriting and songcraft that he and his wife Ash display through their duo, Ash & Eric. He has shown a true commitment to his craft and has exhibited a great deal of growth in his developing career as a producer and recording engineer. When Eric joined, he wasn't sure about his skills but he didn't want to keep paying for expensive studio time because he wanted total control over his music. Since building his home studio, he has recorded and released songs for The Promise is Hope, Ash & Eric, as well as for other local musicians in the Worcester area, making a name for himself as Eric "The Harvester" L'Esperance over at Harvest Root Recording.

Tim has improved his mixing and mastering skills to the point of gaining considerable recognition for his work in alternative hip hop, LoFI and EDM and he managed to quit his day job of 35 years to start his own studio business, becoming a full-time mixing and mastering engineer. He works out of his studio at Woodlands Lane Mixing and Mastering.

 

From Fullsail University to Audio Issues

Audio Issues Student Interviews
John Owings - 3003 Sound
7:15
 

John was a touring musician before his band was dropped by their label. He went to Fullsail University to pursue his passion for audio production where his professors used my materials from Audio Issues to complement their teaching. He shared with me how the personal attention and coaching he got from us has helped level up his skills and enabled him to create a side income from his studio skills and now he offers high-quality recording and mixing for independent bands over at 3003 Sound.

 

Gina LaMonte - No Knowledge to Pro Records

Audio Issues Student Interviews
Gina "Mama Gina" LaMonte
8:52
 

Gina came to us when the world shut down during COVID and she had to learn how to record, mix, and release her music on her own. She didn't think she had the ear to do it herself but through our programs, she discovered how to take her music to the next level. Take a listen to her interview to hear why she thought investing in our materials was "without a doubt the best investment she made."


"Without your support, I would have never dared to publish songs."

"I’ve tried to follow all your advice and tips throughout the whole recording and mixing process. It was you who really encouraged me to make the final step and release songs at last. I’ve gained much more confidence in my audio skills by attending your courses, reading your books, and watching your videos. Thanks a lot!!!"

-Michael Schu, Home Studio Musician, Germany

"...how to define my customer archetype was very valuable."

"Learning from Björgvin how to define my customer archetype was very valuable. It allowed me to create a lead magnet that has increased my subscriber rate. Taking this course has also allowed me to set up an email funnel that allows me to learn more about the people subscribing. Which is super valuable to me and them. With these tools I’m now on the right course to be able to release a product in the future.”

-Niclas Jeppssen, Professional Audio Engineer and Podcaster Behind Your Audio Solutions, U.K.

"...my first online course launch wouldn't have been the same without him."

"With his online business experience and achievements, Björgvin has been a real model to follow. The content he provides is phenomenal and helps me a lot by giving me ideas and direction on how to organize, monetize and implement my online platform as an artist and entrepreneur. He helped me tweak the sales page copy for my first online course launch I did via email and it wouldn't have been the same without him. That course sold over $14,000 in the first couple weeks."

-Chris Selim, Creator of Mixdown Online and The Ultimate Guide to Cubase. Montreal, Canada

"His advice on writing and email marketing has dramatically changed my business."

"Like most audio engineers, I tend to be a little more audio-nerd than entrepreneur. Because of this, I frequently have "small business blind spots" which Björgvin has helped me to see and overcome. When he speaks, I take notes. His advice on writing and email marketing has dramatically changed my business. I don’t think anyone has anywhere near as much experience as he does...You have had a huge impact on me learning how to write decent emails and the benefit to my business was just bananas. It was tens of thousands of dollars in extra business just from random people that had forgotten about me. It was weird how it instantly worked!"‚Äč

-Chris Graham, Mastering Engineer and Co-Host of the Six Figure Creative Podcast. Columbus, Ohio

We Help You Achieve Similar Results Through Our M3 Accelerator Program

The M3 Accelerator will take your mixing, mastering, and audio skills to the next level so that you can feel confident and proud about releasing and promoting your music.

How Does it Work?

The M3 Accelerator includes everything you need to know about audio production, like how to set up your studio and find the time to work on your music, record great music at the source, and how to mix and master release-ready records so that you can feel confident and proud of the music you're working on. And together we will set up a business for you where you can promote yourself, your services, and your products, increase your online presence, and command more authority in your niche.

That way you can reach more fans and attract clients who want to work with you.

Set Your Home Studio Up for Business Success

You'll get personal help setting up your home studio so that you can make great music from the start.

By treating your room acoustically, both with absorption and diffusion you will create better recordings and mixes. By reducing reflections and flattening the frequency response of your room to the best of your abilities, you will hear the instruments better; you won’t have echoes and reflections bothering your sound, and you will have a more controlled home studio.

If you already have a home studio in place, we'll make sure it's tuned and treated as well as possible so that you can get great recordings straight from the source, and make mixes that translate to every speaker system.

Confidently Finish Your Mixes and Create an Amazing Portfolio

Discover everything you need to know to transform your rough recordings into finished, release-ready records. You'll get access to our premium mixing courses as well as personal feedback on your tracks as you're working on them.

In a nutshell, you'll receive everything you need to do to get your music up to a professional level. If you're already confident with your audio skills, even better. Then you'll have a headstart on the program and can work on wowing your fans or clients with your already stellar work.

Attract an Audience of Fans, Clients, or Customers With Authentic Marketing

Whether you're looking to promote your music or attract clients to your studio, you'll need an audience. The easiest way to grow an audience is with a predictable marketing system that reaches new followers and grows your email list every day.

Marketing gets a lot of flak in our industry for being spammy and scammy. I believe there's a better way you can share your story and promote your services without coming off like a used car salesman. 

Stop relying on unreliable word-of-mouth and start using a systemized framework that captures your audience’s attention and grows your email list of fans, clients and customers. With our Continuous Content Loop system, you’ll create a content strategy you actually enjoy doing that increases your online presence, grows your audience, and helps the people you want to serve become your fans, customers, and clients.

You’ll Attract an Audience of Fans, Clients, or Customers

Whether you're looking to promote your music or attract clients to your studio, you'll need an audience. The easiest way to grow an audience is with a predictable marketing system that reaches new followers and grows your email list every day.

Stop relying on unreliable word-of-mouth and start using a systemized framework that captures your audience’s attention and grows your email list of fans, clients and customers.

Build Your Systems and Hire Your Team

You can’t possibly do it all yourself, which is why you will learn how to multiply your efforts with the help of a team of contractors, outsourced service providers, and tools that help you do more in less time than you ever thought possible before. Gone are the days of feeling stressed out and spread thin because there's too much to do and you don't have to hire full-time help to buy back your time. Once you implement automated systems and outsource your menial tasks you can focus on making a bigger impact with your music business.

Develop the Mindset and Motivation You Need to Succeed

With all the skills you'll acquire inside the M3 Accelerator, you'll be fully equipped with all the hard skills necessary to make it with your music.

However, through our coaching and support, you will also develop mindset techniques and soft skills that help you conquer difficult times, moments of doubt, and the ever-present imposter syndrome so that you can succeed every day with your passion.

Who is the M3 Accelerator For?

 

The M3 Accelerator is for musicians, songwriters, composers, lyricists, producers, audio engineers, and other creatives who want to master their audio and music skills, increase their online presence to attract more fans and clients, diversify their income streams and succeed with their music skills.

We are only looking for dedicated individuals who understand that great things come to those who invest in their own skills and are willing to put in the time and effort to reach their goals and succeed with their music.

 

What Do You Get?

  • Program Videos: Lifetime access to the in-depth, continuously updated program materials to view at your convenience
  • Accountability: Q&A coaching calls to keep you focused and on track to reach your goals
  • Personal Support: 1-on-1 coaching every two weeks to keep your momentum going

 

The "Guaranteed Results" No-Brainer Guarantee

Make no mistake, the M3 Accelerator is NOT for everyone.

You’re ONLY a good fit if:

  • You’re already working regularly on music
  • You already have a decent home studio setup or willing to set one up
  • You’re willing to promote yourself and your music through your website and social media.
  • You understand that you need more than just musical skills to succeed and are willing to become a “musical entrepreneur.”
  • You’re willing to be mentored and can take constructive criticism and advice on how to improve.
  • You understand that success takes work and that there's no magic pill to make all your dreams come true. 

If you check all those boxes you will get results with our coaching program because:

We will ONLY offer you a spot if we’re confident we can help you.

I only want to deliver results for my students and if I think you have what it takes to build a brand, increase your online presence, and grow your music or audio business, then you will be offered a spot. 

 

We Work With You UNTIL You Get Results

 

This isn’t some program where we email you a bunch of videos and leave you on your own. This coaching program is designed so that you don’t have to go it alone and can always come to us for support, accountability, and encouragement.

That’s why we will personally work with you until you get the results and start making an income with your music and audio business.

However, you must put in the work if you want to succeed, and if you do it you’re guaranteed to see your success increase from following our program.

I take my guarantee very seriously. I am not interested in taking your money if you do not get any value from what I'm creating for you. So if you’re not happy, I’m not happy. Simple as that.

 

Disclaimer: No Magic Pills Available

 

This program will not give you a magic pill to succeed. If I had one of those, I'd be sitting at a European café sipping coffee and reading. But what I can offer you instead is 15 years of experience in building a profitable business in the music industry that allows me the freedom to work on what I want, when I want. 

Lucky for you, the core mission behind my work is to teach musicians, producers, engineers, and other creative people like you the mindset that takes the sleaze out of marketing and selling, the success strategies that help you overcome your imposter syndrome, and the entrepreneurial principles you need to grow your business in today’s digital age. 

 

How Much Does It Cost?

The M3 Accelerator program, combined with the other Audio Issues premium materials, our community, AND ongoing 1-on-1 coaching requires an investment of $800/month with a 6-month commitment (and bulk discounts available if you pay in full).

"Great information, thanks very much Björgvin. Looking forward to going through M3 Accelerator-I'm especially glad that it is a course where I will learn all how to market my music online but also be supported in the mixing and mastering of music-and then on to how to build a possible career as well- so cool- many thanks"

Make an Impact With Your Music

Hi, I’m Björgvin Benediktsson. I’m the author of the #1 Amazon best-seller, Step By Step Mixing: How to Create Great Mixes Using Only 5 Plug-ins, and the business parable, You Get What You Give: A Simple Story for Finding Success in the Music Business.

I'm originally from Iceland but I've lived in the United States since 2009. I'm here to help you go pro with your music and audio skills so you can make fans, get streams, and earn an income from your music skills. 

I've worked in the music industry since 2006 and have worn plenty of hats. I’ve worked as a live sound engineer, a broadcast recording engineer, a professional touring musician, a freelance mixing and mastering engineer, and an audio educator since I started my career in 2006.

I've run my own profitable online business in the music industry since 2009, writing books and creating digital products and courses to help my audience make better music.

My advice has been featured in publications such as MusicTech magazine, Startup Tucson, The Huffington Post, CD Baby's DIY Musician's Blog, Audiotuts, and the SAE Institute.

 Currently, I help music, audio, and creative professionals level up their mixing and mastering skills, transform those skills into income, grow their online business with digital products, and systemize their marketing so that they can spend more time with their family and friends while making a full-time living.

The core mission behind my work is to teach creative people like you the mindset that takes the sleaze out of marketing and selling, the success strategies that help you overcome your imposter syndrome, and the entrepreneurial principles you need to grow your business in today’s digital age.

In short, I simplify your business so that you can enjoy the freedom to create what you want when you want.
