WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
LET THEM ROAR, Band 
"I took the "on the right track" marketing crash course. SO MUCH information was shared and it was all done in a very efficient, fluid way with natural progression and new skills to learn. I am especially grateful for the order of operations map to follow in preparing for a release. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to do everything they can to be ready to launch their best work."
Paul Reisler, Kid Pan Alley, Founder
"I’ve been teaching songwriting to professional and semi-pro songwriters for over 30 years in workshops throughout the country. I want to start bringing Whitney Asher to all the workshops to work with them on their marketing and branding. I’ve never come across anyone so knowledgeable and clear about marketing and who is able to transmit that information to others. She is a master teacher.”
Shaylee Simone, Artist 
“I had the most INCREDIBLE experience working with Whitney and The Marketing Mixtape. The really neat thing about Marketing Mixtape is that they want to teach and equip artists, because they understand how crazy expensive it can get to hire people out every single release. And I promise you, if I can learn it, anyone can learn it! Whitney is a patient teacher and is super easy to follow. 
All in all I had great success with my release after working with MMT. My social media plan played out fluidly, the PR session was excellent and I successfully landed a few Spotify playlists using the methods she taught me. There is no magic button, it takes a lot of work, but it is doable and worth it if you put in the effort! I highly recommend working with this company, it is so worth it. It's like the whole "teach a man to fish" metaphor. You will use this knowledge throughout your entire musical career! And us independent artists can use all the help we can get. :)”

Aga O.
Yarelis N.
"I am very grateful for this initiative!! I am a musician who wants to learn how to produce music, so I was expecting to get a series of videos- and I definitely got what I wanted, all in portions small enough to digest, and well explained! This is the core of the course, but apart from that there is real support! You can attend online meetings, ask questions via email (and receive answers), be in the facebook community to share your thoughts, and, above all, Xylo Aria will keep motivating you!"
"MPW has been a game changer for me in so many ways! I have always wanted to start producing music and this course has helped me learn how to use the Ableton software completly. It has helped me make my own music and get feedback from an amazing community of women. Overall I feel super supported and inspired by this program!"
Jacqueline P.
Gannat F.
"I strongly recommend this course to anyone looking to get started with music production. The techniques of making your first beats in Ableton are clearly explained and Xylo's enthusiasm and knowledge are infectious and inspirational. If you want to make your own music, this is the ideal place to start!" 
"Xylo Aria's course somehow made Ableton dramatically less intimidating for me! Not only did I gain more knowledge and understanding about how to improve my production skills, But straight after watching the videos I immediately feel inspired and get to work. It made me comforted by the fact that we are all in the same boat!"
