"This weekend will change your life forever!"

-Sonia Rao of The Voice


Joe Solo is the 20-year LA Record Producer who developed Macy Gray. Joe's credits include Michael Jackson, Fergie, will i. am, Quincy Jones, Universal, Sony, Apple, Interscope, Atlantic, and many others, and is founder of the Music Success Workshop.

“Our goal in this Workshop,”says Joe, “is have you chart your own personal path to a successful life in music. You’ll leave the Workshop with an in-depth understanding of the Music Industry and how you can apply your unique creativity to your own music within the realities of your life situation.

“You’ll learn how to relate to, understand, and work with others so you’ll write better songs and have better recordings. You’ll learn the importance of good production. You’ll have a chance to hear your materials played with feedback from both the audience and me to enhance your creativity. I’ll give you EVERYTHING I got and I’ll answer all your questions.”

This retreat is a WORKSHOP – not a seminar:

This is not someone just speaking from a platform while you take notes. Rather, it’s a cooperative event with Joe leading the charge. It’ll be fun and entertaining, too.

Expect lots of audience involvement and conversations back and forth, including discussion of current industry issues and strategies.

This is an experience you’ll  never get from a lecture, an online webinar or a book.


Get your song played and evaluated

You’ll hear first hand where the strong spots are, how improvements could be made, and - even while listening to other's material - you will learn how to apply these techniques to your own music and lyrics. You’ll learn how to embrace audience feedback.

So bring your music on cd, jump drive, or even bring your favorite instrument and sing live! Each of our 30 attendees gets a chance to strut their stuff.

This is one of the highlights of the Music Success Retreat because it not only helps everyone improve their music, it’s also a great way for Joe to discover new talent.

All Levels Welcome: From Beginners to Professionals

From absolute beginners to seasoned pros, anyone interested in being a part of the exciting music industry will benefit from attending. 

And if you're wondering if you must have your material "ready" before presenting it at the Retreat, there’s good news for you: The earlier in the creative process you are at, the more mistakes you’ll AVOID later because you'll get a chance to receive Joe's professional direction before going too far down a path that might not work best for you.

Special Guest Panel of Music Supervisors & Publishers, and other Industry Players

Joe leads a panel of Film & TV music supervisors, music publishers and many other key members of the music industry. They'll be on hand to answer your questions and give you insights on how to win valuable placements. ***

This is a rare opportunity to gain access to the taste-makers and gate-keepers of getting your music to the world.


Panelists to be announced soon - Panelists from Joe's past workshops includes music executives from Universal Music Group, Warner Bros. Records, NBC, Sony Publishing, MTV, The Voice and many others.

“I cherry-pick these folks because I believe each one has a unique insider perspective on how to create a niche for yourself and breakthrough in today’s crowded attention economy,”says Joe. “No where else will musicians find this insanely useful information!”
