Florian Arndt - what a success in performing

Hi Dec!

Fantastic! It was a fantastic performance! We looked stunning! We had to perform an extra song.

I think we had to sign pictures for about half an hour after the show appearance. I had to pose for pictures, sign pictures, arms, stomachs, cell phones, bags, even t*ts... ;-)

We appeared on the same stage as acts like 'Starsplash', 'Soul Control' (Chocolate) and Hot Banditoz (Veo Veo). We were the only artists that got "Ausziehen! Ausziehen!" shouts from the audience, which means "take off your clothes".

Everything we did this evening was very strongly influenced by you. Thanks. Florian Arndt [Germany]

One of the tiny few to have two records in the TOP FIVE at the same time. He has made £Millions from music writing, performing, recording and production - would you let him show you how?

EXCITING NEWS! I¹ve just had an email from the producer of the UK Radio 2 Good Morning Sunday show, saying that she¹s hoping they will play "Angels Exist" from “Play My Heart” in their programme this coming Sunday!

She¹s intending that they feature it in their “Sunday Spotlight” slot about 8.20am.

Roger Royle is presenting the programme on the 15th as Aled Jones is away that week.

And if you¹re not an early riser, you can always listen to it on ³Play Again² on the BBC Radio 2 website at some later stage! Here¹s the link: www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/goodmorningsun/

Anyways. I wanted to invite you to the show, we played in the O2 Arena in London in front of 10.000 People and it was pretty massive... I had some free tickets for you, but the friendly lady who I talked to on the phone told me you were on tour. Thought we could have met each other... well, next time maybe.

all the best,

I was asked to play at the Pepsi Music festival in Buenos Aires. This is a major event, even the most important festival held on this country (and maybe the whole South American continent). it lasts 10 days and almost every major local star will play, as well as many international acts like Megadeath, The Wailers, Die Toten Hose, etc.

"I know what kind of stuff you play, and I'm calling you to do exactly that. Your sound is cool. in fact, YOU are cool. I wouldn't mind to have you on stage just dancing next to your keyboards, you would be adding a cool feature to our band. You have a killing image".

Now, I imagine that when I'm onstage there will be dozens of keyboard players in the audience complaining that they can play way better than me... Well I guess I learned a couple of tricks in your course.

I think you would have liked this...

Recently I have finished a score for an independent movie called “Treehouse”. I am now composing tracks for various music libraries for licencing and am also discussing publishing the MUNKIE catalogue with various publishers. 

I am now working on the third MUNKIE album currently titled “Dark Corners”, having received several unsigned internet awards for tracks on the second “Chemical Process”.

Hi Dec , some good news regarding my girlfriend Erin's songs, 3 are being used on a new American TV show. Anyway thanks again for your invaluable support, knowing your there makes this leap into the publishing world feel a lot safer ... Roger O'Donnell [The Cure]


   Dear Dec!

It's been a while that I had time to write to you - but things have been busy. Perfect proof that YOUR way to do business is right - we are one of 10 bands selected for the finals in a competition to play "Download" this year, great publicity - "Rock Hard" in Germany love our CD as well and we have our gig in April which will be packed because of the increase in the mailing list.

Thanks for your continued advice!  Andie Cayne


Dec - you're the man!! It was four years ago that I came across your website - and what a rollercoaster of a ride it's been ever since! Nothing had prepared me for what you had in store! With your advice and continual support you have helped me build a business which is currently going ballistic! I've pulled in £38,000... in the last two weeks alone!! I think it's time I planned another trip down to Eastbourne... can we go back to that yummy pasta joint?

Thanks for everything... you're a true pal :o) - Alex H.


Florian Arndt - what a success.
"Things are going damn good! I´m constantly improving as a person and as a musician - thanks to your program.
I´m becoming an expert for nonlinear composing and adaptive an interactive audio, I started my own publishing business, I develop production and DJ seminars at musicschools for young children, I have gigs with international Chart-Acts (for example with Special D).
I very closely collaborate with your liveperforming member Marcel Brell. We produced some of his tracks together. Next Friday, I will be performing with him at "Sommer im Park" in Hamburg. I worked with TOP 20 producers, for example with Henning Verlage. You improved my life so much. Thank you. I really appreciate your help via emails. The greatest support I ever got!!
Florian Arndt [Hamburg]"

John gets the best gig

"Remember I mentioned I was thinking about doing a bit of gigging last year? I want to gig just for the fun of it. Well this is my story. I've visited Brighton a couple of times last year catching up with friends. While I was out and about I thought I would apply one of the tips from 'How to Make Million' from your music.
Low and behold I got an Email from
one of the biggest and most famous clubs in Brighton asking me if I can play later on this month! All from applying one technique you teach us in your course - Amazing!!!
Be well, John Seiffer [UK]

winning first prize in a big concerto competition. I did win a solo performance with the symphony - now I just have to pick out which concerto play! I am a bit tempted to write my own concerto...
My first premiere (a woodwind quintet) should come in the next few months! I've been reading every word and will continue to do so...

"Good news! Rock-it music publishing (our company name) has just placed 5 songs with "T***** Records" UK. They are a country label.

We have publishing contracts in place with the writers and they have been informed and are delighted. Your pack has been just perfect.!

We have informed "T***** Records" we are happy for these songs to go on the debut album for their artist.

New Release from Mickey Strange"Spikes of the Devil's Heels ....coming soon" [Serious Writers Guild Member Mickey Strange - New York]


I now own 2 record companies and a publishing company, is there any more to say?

After a few radio spots including Alex Peppers Galaxy 105 show. 'Antoine' went back into the studio with C2K to record a cover of the Justin Hayward smash “Forever Autumn”. A real “hands in the air” trancer, featuring the seductive vocals of 'Kirsty R'. Already receiving airplay across the EMAP Big City north network, comprising Hallam FM (Sheffield), Aire FM (Leeds) and Viking FM (Hull).

Oh yes, hit the commercial pop top 40 this week, straight in at number 8! " [Serious Writers Guild Member Mike Harlington - C-2-K owner] [UK]


Munkie-Progression"Just about to break big....'Munkie' first album 'Progression'
Pate Tong: "An outstanding debut, great stuff."
Vince De La Cruz: "Munkie has some real talent, superb well written songs."
Kris James: "Deep, ambient and flavourful, exactly as a good album should be"
Barcode Magazine: "Lush, Downtempo collection of Electro-Pop tracks"
[Serious Writers Guild Member Jason Clarke is 'Munkie' [UK]


Richard Barriball...an inspiration?"
I have just performed the best concert of my 19 year long career in the Royal Marines Band Service which was performed in Leeds Town Hall.
And during the show, we played "I Believe" (which would please Dec), and John Williams' "Hymn to the Fallen" which with the stage presentation that went with it, many people wanted to cry. It was just like something out of Hollywood but done in the British way.
Some of the choir are going to perform in Disneyland very soon... So I bought the leading soprano a Chardonay at the hotel...not a glass but a bottle in an ice bucket - a small investment if she can help my song writing take off.
The Royal British Legion concert will be aired on BBC Radio Leeds on Remembrance Sunday at 8am. So I''ve just got to finish an arrangement of "Time To Say Goodbye" for the next Mountbatten Festival of Music in the Albert Hall. I wonder where I'll be going next!"
[Serious Writers Guild Member Richard Barriball] [UK Royal Marines]


K Carrol music success in Ireland"This summer he entered a "Search For A Star". We took a gamble in the final and along with 'The River' (he did an excellent cover of it); Leroy Brown ( great animation and fun in that) he decided to perform a song he wrote himself, just finished it a few days earlier actually.
It's called "When I Look In Your Eyes". Really nice song, and it swung it for him;
he came first. E2500, and a chance to make a 3 track recording. He has asked me to help him with the recording;" [Serious Writers Guild Member Kevin Carrol] [Ireland.]


Eddison responsible for soundtrack"I read about this kind of thing in your Probationer lesson only last night.

The stuff on Publishing in the last one was absolutely brilliant. I'm getting out of my Publishing deal straight away - I reckon I've been done to the tune of about £3K so far on past releases and I don't intend losing huge amounts on the new stuff which is going to sell bucketloads."

What you were saying about saving for something and then not buying it really does work, I was going to tell you earlier, thats what happened when I bought my rock star car. I spent six weeks looking at this ad. thinking if I could afford it that's the car for me but I'm £500 short. Lo & behold six weeks later £500 exactly turned up & the car was still there! The rest as they say - is history.

Better go - I thought of a great drum loop while I was away so it's time to put it to good use.

Hi Dec

Played a really late gig last night (Monday) so I went to bed early tonight. But I just had to get up and write this.

Before I embarked on your course I was, no word of a lie, a labourer on a building site. Now I play in clubs, at festivals, at holiday camps, easily 4 or 5 nights a week, have an album throughout Europe. We have been asked to play dates in Germany, Holland, France and Belgium next year.

So, I will take great pleasure in bringing this adventure that I'm having to certain people's attention. I know you don't need that....but for some reason I do.

Kelvin [UK, Email]



I have gone back to my studio for the first time since reading your guidance and having spent the last week listening to the charts, and I was amazed at what came out. The most up to date and happenin' song I ever wrote. Music and lyrics in a day. Done!

Yes, its true, I did go out and buy a brand new top of the range Land Rover Discovery. And I have my own private plate on it.

My Ricky Martin style track is looking good. Been reading your advice under Q&A's on backing vocals and arranging and am now the proud owner of the best backing vocals I ever recorded. Thick and punchy. AND BIG!!! Life is good! Lead vocals are coming up and it will be on it's way to you.

"Perhaps I should mention that by the time I finished recording the album, I had taken one hundred and fifty one paid, up front, orders. I also did a did a two and a half days show in December and sold £830.00 worth of CD's and tapes, largely the new album". [ Nick Achurch (Selston)]

Hi Dec,

I was at work today reading Hard Music Facts (I do as much Writers Guild stuff as is possible at work otherwise I would just walk out & never go back) & I broke down & wept.
