"You are one of my favourite people to license music from so please train everyone to be as awesome to deal with as you are! I'm excited to have another batch of Nat-educated musicians correctly sending me their music to license. Thanks Nat Jay!"
-Natasha Durprey,
Music Supervisor

"What an informative seminar yesterday with Nat Jay...I had been to a couple of similar seminars in the past and was still left mystified. Not so anymore, as you clearly demystified the road map into coherent concrete steps. Thanks for also showing what a contract looks like too. So helpful!"
-Genevieve, seminar attendee

"For any musician looking to understand how best to prepare and navigate getting your music into film and TV, Nat Jay's seminar is a MUST! I went yesterday, and it was exceptional! Do yourself a large favour - connect with her and get on her list for the next time she runs one. You will be inspired!!"
-Michael, seminar attendee


"After three informative and inspiring hours in Vancouver's last rainy Sunday afternoon of February, music licensing for film and TV was no longer a mystery to me! No better way than learning from someone who has walked the walk, found her way, yet still one of us, Nat Jay. Highly recommended!"
-Marlowe, seminar attendee
