"Bands across the UK are now booking me"

The courses are spot on, I have learnt so much and my mixes have gone from amateur to pretty damn good i would like to think. Bands from across the UK are now booking me and i'm preparing to make the jump between part freelance/part time employment to full time freelance and get rid of my job! I couldn't have done it without you!

"What I can do now is seriously shocking..."

Going back from what I was doing a couple of months ago to what I can do now is seriously shocking to me and very exciting at the same time. The passion that I felt for mixing back in 2011 is all coming back now and I really want to go forward with this as a career. I have so much more confidence now than I did even a few months ago.

I feel like I should be giving you more money for the course than what I paid! You've not only allowed me to dramatically improve my mixing but you've also given me the tools to become motivated again, something I desperately needed.

The difference is astounding!

The amount of years saved trying to figure out all this key knowledge.. I’m just impossibly blessed to have found Jordan’s teachings. I thought sure, what’s the worst that could happen? I learn some new things? Holy #$@! did I learn some things... because of the business course as well, I’m fully confident in selling my skills as an audio and mixing engineer! Only up from here! Thanks Jordan, you literally changed my life.

The whole story, with every detail.

One-stop shopping with this guy. He is the only online recording/mixing coach that I have found who gives the whole story, with every detail and who speaks with such certainty, that you know he knows what he's talking about and with a pedigree to back it up.

My only regret is that I didn't do so sooner!

The knowledge shared in these videos has saved me years of trial and error, and I thank God that it costs less than going back to college to learn all of these techniques. Jordan has constructed a truly fantastic program, and I know I'm going to be going back and referencing these videos for many years to come.

Not only that, but access to the HCMS coaching calls and the community of like minded producers/mix engineers is absolutely invaluable. The support and guidance of both the HCMS team and the HCMS community, has multiplied my confidence and efficiency several times over.

It's a dream I never knew I had, come true!

I can't begin to describe the relief I felt as I devoured these courses. So much confusion and frustration was swept away as I watched a professional show me exactly how to approach an entire production from start to finish, step-by-step, in detail. The feeling of excitement as I learned and applied these techniques to the multitracks provided was fantastic! For the first time ever, I not only felt equipped to make better music myself, but I had the confidence to take on other people's music too! I had never even contemplated that before. I should point out that I studied music performance and production in college for 3 years, and the production side of it only ever confused and bored me. Now I'm working on my first paid EP project for another band! It's a dream I never knew I had, come true!

"Unreal man."

I landed a really serious record to me last night and I feel I owe it all to you.

I would have paid 3 times what I did had I known how much these videos would clear up for me. I bought 10 years of knowledge for next to nothing. Unreal man.

It's a cheat code.

As for the content of the course, you get way more than you pay for. It's a cheat code. If you are like me, you have watched hundreds of YouTube videos. There is just too much noise out there. I'm a DIY guy and this saved me a ton of time...and time is money. The catalog of information this course provides is invaluable.

Wrecked the internet...

Jordan Valeriote basically wrecked the internet for me...others kinda suck by comparison, I don't even bother with any others now.

My mix from 6 weeks ago sounds so weak compared to what I am now churning out!
