Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not a professional

Great! As long as you’re making money from music, or hope to in the future, this is the perfect solution for you. Instead of enrolling in a music program at a university, you’re getting a current, up to date education on real skills you can use to get and keep a gig, at a fraction of the cost. The ROI is insane. 

I’m a professional, I already know how to do this..

This is the curse of the working professionals. The most important thing you need on a current gig, is to not change anything. If it’s working, doing touch it, don’t optimize. The problem is, that’s the very thing that will keep you from growing and sharpening your skill-set. Music technology changes so quickly, it’s hard to keep up. If you’re not staying on top of it and learning new things, you’ll be left behind and miss out. This program is designed to expand your skillset and give you an up to date look at the industry standards and how 

I get so frustrated with tech.. This will never work!!

First, it’s important to understand, it’s not your fault. To create the perfect performance, you’ve got to learn alot of different pieces of tech. Once you get those mastered, you’ve then got to figure out how get them integrated. Those companies don’t often talk to each other, and they don’t provide support for each others products…so where do you turn for help?


And ultimately, you want to play music, not be an IT person on stage!


With this program you’ll get a guided learning experience through each of the pieces of tech you need. Then you’ll learn step by step how to integrate them all and have Ableton control them. You’ll learn step by step how to do this, and get support along the way. 

You can’t teach an old dog, new tricks

There’s no age limit to this content. The only requirement is that you first believe you can learn this content. If so, you’ll master it. We so often get in our own way because of our limiting beliefs. Whether you believe you can or can’t, you’re right. If you can commit to believing that you can do this, I’ll commit to providing the most through, step by step curriculum you can find. 

What if I'm busy during the program?

The Bootcamp is designed to be flexible for your schedule. You can learn at your own pace, view content without WiFi, and pick back up right where you left off. Just let your coach know if you need to shift deadlines. You'll never miss anything with recorded coaching calls.

I can’t afford it

I get it. Money is tight. It’s time to focus only on the essentials. If you don’t feel like this program is going to improve your performance, help you book better gigs, and ultimately make more money…this isn’t for you.


But if you have big dreams and a small budget, this is the best ROI you can get. Practically speaking, if you wanted to achieve the same results you’ll get in this program, an in-sync lighting show, perfectly timed video, lyrics and charts that follow your arrangement, and all of your patches and presets changing at just the right time…you’d have to hire at least 3 techs to travel with you on the road. You’d have to pay each of them at least 1,000 a week, room and board, and per diem.


With this program you pay me less than half of what you’d pay one tech, once a month for 6 months and no extra bunks on the bus needed.


Plus, what you learn here will continue to provide value and results after the program ends, and after you stop paying me. 

Is this the same as your All-Access membership?

All-Access lets you learn skills on-demand, but without guidance. The Bootcamp gives you structured training and coaching for creating complete perfect performances. If you want to develop skills on your own timeline, All-Access may be a better fit.

No one in my area does this..

I have good news and bad news.


The good news is you have an unfair advantage. You’ll be able to use playback to play songs with instruments you don’t have, you’ll be able to stay focused on the music (and not the tech) and have more fun playing music. You’ll be able to create the perfect performance and become one of the best bands in your area. You can book better and bigger gigs and make more money and have more fun.


You’re not called to be just another band in a bar… you want more than that.


Here’s the bad news though…if no one in your area is doing this, you have no one in your area you can learn from, and get support.


But I have even better news...with this program, you not only learn how to implement Playback with the road tested Playback Method, but you get a community of like minded musicians that are here to cheer you on and support you.


We won’t let you quit, and we’ll answer all your questions for you.

Will this program help me get work as a playback engineer?

Absolutely. We need more qualified playback engineers. When you complete the Bootcamp, you'll get certified and be listed as a recommended engineer. Your skills will make you stick out and help you get and keep the gig.

I’m preparing for a tour.. I don’t have time for this..

When you join the perfect performance Bootcamp, you’ll get immediate access to every course available in our All-Access program instantly. If there’s something you want to learn, you can instantly dive into that and master it. As you follow along and progress in the program, you’ll instantly find little things you can start to implement right away, and store away knowledge and insight for future performances. You’ll always be “getting ready” for the next performance, this is your chance to make the next one, the best yet…don’t miss out. 

I’m in the middle of a tour.. I don’t have time to learn this

While you’re in the middle of a tour, it’s not the right time to start suddenly testing and trying new things. But, once you’ve got the swing of things and have a good rhythm going, you have time to learn. Because this program is both guided and on-demand, you can learn when you have time and always pick back up where you left off. Very practically, you can view content on your phone and download courses to view without WiFi. The site remembers exactly where you left off and you can pick back up where you left off.

We do this as a hobby and don’t have the budget to do this

You didn’t pick up this hobby to be frustrated all the time. And if you dream of this becoming a potential full time gig, you don’t want to start dreading it. We all know how frustrating it can be to try and integrate music tech into your setup. This program will save you hours of searching the internet , hours of stumbling through the manual, hours of trying to interpret all those sources to implement what you’re trying to learn (only to find out the approach was wrong in the first place)… This program will save you all of that time, and all of that money you’ve already wasted. Plus, what you learn in this program, will elevate your performance and has the potential to make you one of the best bands in your area. Just because it’s a hobby doesn’t mean you can’t get paid.  Don’t just be another band in a bar. Learn how to create the perfect performance to improve your show, so you can book better gigs, and make more money and have more fun. 

I’m already on the road as a playback engineer.. What can I learn from this? 

It’s never been JUST about playback. You know it. It’s rare to be hired just to be the playback

Engineer. You’re walking into each gig and expected to met the un-spoken expectations of the production manager, and the artist you’re working with. With this program, you get confidence. Confidence that no matter what scenario you’re walking into, the answer will be yes. Yes to automating anything with Ableton live. Yes to creating a connected stage and controlling your instruments on stage (no matter what they are with Ableton Live. Yes to setting up a teleprompter. Yes to creating a redundant rig. Yes to automating lights, and video, and charts…. With this program the answer is yes and you get the confidence you’ve always dreamed of.

We don’t have the budget to buy all this gear.. And hire all these extra techs…

You’ve got big dreams and a small budget, I get it.


Here’s the options you’ve got. Hire multiple techs, pay them each 1,000 every week (plus room and board and per diem) and you can have amazing lights, video, have someone else change your patches and presets for you and have an amazing show.


Or you can pay me less than half of what you’d pay a single tech, once a month for six months and I’ll teach you how to hit the road, with the same results and without hiring any additional techs.


When it comes to gear, you’ve got to find and buy gear that can be versatile enough to expand and grow later to add new skills.


Otherwise you end up throwing away thousands of dollars of gear everytime you purchase something and need a new skill.


Again, the choice is yours…pay a lot less now, or pay a lot more later..

I watch your Youtube tutorials.. What’s new with this??

This is a purpose designed, step by step curriculum and program that will show you the exact path you need to take to achieve the perfect performance. YouTube is all about “how” and making it as quick as possible. This program not only shows you how, but explains the exact right order and steps you need to take to achieve the perfect performance, and explains why. Once you understand the key frameworks and why we’re taking these steps, the sky is your limit. You’ll be able to implement these techniques to achieve the perfect performance . This is also the only place you’ll see me teach the perfect performance concepts, and the only place you can become a certified coach. 

I subscribed for a month a few years ago.. What’s new with this??

The all-access program is designed to be the most comprehensive, on-demand place to learn how to integrate playback into your performance. I’ve released my brand new playback method and advanced playback method courses that will teach you how integrate playback into your performance. If you’re a self starter and want to access only the content you want when you need it, all access is a great fit. But if your goal is to create the perfect performance, or to help others create the perfect performance, this is the only place you’ll find a step by step process to create the perfect performance. I will show you the exact courses you need to take, and help coach you along the way to achieve the perfect performance. Plus, this is the only place you’ll find the perfect performance content, including the frameworks, processes, and I teach here, 

Real musicians don’t use tracks!!

Who let you in here??? No, I’m glad you’re here. Here’s the truth though, using playback and playing with a metronome doesn’t make you any less of a musician than playing a an electric guitar makes your any less of a guitar player if you played an acoustic guitar. Playback is an instrument, it takes effort, skill, and time to master it. Most believe playback isn’t for real musicians simply because they don’t understand playback. They believe a guitar play is on stage “faking” playing guitar and 

The guitar is on the track. That’s not the case. They’re onstage playing their parts and supplementing their sounds with sounds from the original record and sending MIDI and timecode to

automate their production. I’ve heard great musicians use playback, and I’ve heard terrible musicians use playback…they were all real.

Can I really get gigs as a playback engineer?

There are far more gigs for Playback Engineers than there are playback engineers. Don’t take my word for it, check out what berklee music online said… 


https://www.berklee.edu/berklee-now/news/key-changes-playback-engineers


Learning Playback is a way you can get and keep the gig. Imagine walking into any audition as an amazing musician AND the skillset of an amazing playback engineer.


Imagine being hired as a playback engineer, and being able to effectively communicate with everyone in the production and help improve your band and artists show.


There’s only so many gigs as a musician or as a tech.


Who will get the gig? The amazing drummer, or the amazing drummer who is also an amazing playback engineer?


And when you’re not doing your normal job, you can book gigs as a playback engineer.


Plus, if you’re looking for a great side hustle, you can start coaching other bands and helping program their shows.


When you complete the perfect performance Bootcamp, you’ll receive certification and have the option to be listed publicly on the site. When people ask me for suggestions for playback engineers, I’ll point them to you.

I don’t live in LA or Nashville… who is going to hire me as a playback??

The beauty of this job is that it can happen from anywhere. It takes learning the knowledge (I’ll help with that), applying the knowledge (you can do that anywhere, with any band-or for yourself), a proven track record of your success (with this knowledge you’ll be successful), and a network of people that trust you (you’ll gain that with this community).


Plus, in addition when you successfully complete this program, you’ll receive a certificate and have the option of being listed on the site as a certified playback engineer.


When people ask me for suggestions for playback engineers, I’ll point them your direction.

I don’t know how to do this..

Great! As long as you believe you can learn this, and commit to do the work, I’ll help you learn.


Instead of being left to your own to figure this out, you’ll be given a step by step framework on exactly how to achieve the perfect performance.


You don’t need to know how to do this, all you need is to believe you can do this, and a commitment to do the work! 

What if I don’t like it??

Within the first 14 days of this program, if you sign up and realize it’s not for you, you can request a full refund, and we’ll get it to you.

It's Your Choice...

If you hired the musicians and techs needed for your dream show on the road, it could easily cost over $1,000 per person per week.


For a fraction of that cost, you can join the Perfect Performance Bootcamp and have the skills to pull it off yourself through the power of playback and Ableton Live.


Just imagine what it will feel like to step on stage and perform the perfect show you've always envisioned. To hear your full arrangements played back flawlessly. To perform alongside perfectly synced lighting and visuals crafted just for your songs.


To sound better than ever thanks to playback and vocal processing.


All of this is within your reach. The only thing holding you back is knowledge and support. And the Perfect Performance Bootcamp provides the step-by-step training you need to make it happen, and the support you need along the way to integrate it all.
