Life-Changing Results That Audio Colleges Fail to Deliver:


PPS has taught me how a pro engineer would go about music production on every level.

I haven’t had a single issue in my own work that I haven’t been able to overcome. I wouldn’t have had the confidence to pursue any kind of paid work had it not been from the teachings within the PPS. I am very glad I made the investment in it.

Learned more in 2 hours than in 4 years!

I went to audio school for 4 years. I did 5 videos of Jordan's so far and learned more in 2 hours than in 4 years for a lot less money.

Honestly comparable to the Berklee Masters program in music production...

If I could have taken it 5 years ago, it would have saved me $40,000 in tuition.

Mind blowing!

Made a huge impact on my work/workflow! The pieces are getting together big time and I can finally hear a lot better what sounds wrong or right! The template system you showed us works like ‘holy s#$*’, like when I bring the template in the songs seem to be mixed 50-60% already in a few minutes! Mind blowing! Thanks for your work and massive help!

"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.

"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!

I've already learned significantly more useful information than I did in two years of audio college.

I started the PPS training 3 days ago and I've already learned significantly more useful information than I did in two years of audio college. This course is truly the info you actually need to make killer records, not that filler garbage info you get taught in college. I'm super excited to keep learning and make sick records.

"I've been getting more and more clients."

I just want to say thank you so much for your awesome classes. I've been getting more and more clients coming to me, wanting to work with me because of my work.

Your lessons have improved my recording skills by a million. I'm actually making a decent income on my dream; more than I thought I would this early. I'm even able to upgrade some of the gear I desperately need solely off the money I've made from my little bedroom studio!

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.

Having spent countless hours in the studio with several engineers in the past, I thought that the course would be an overall review of what I already knew. That was not the case. Jordan showed me stuff that I wish I knew years ago. By far the best thing I purchased in a long time. All I can say is that I'm 100% satisfied and this course will and already did improve my mixes and confidence a lot.
