Been loving the Lucrative Home Studio course and it’s really eye opening for me. You just saved me $14,000’s on new speakers. You’ve really opened my eyes with quite a few things in the ear training as well… moving around the room to find the nodes where the bass sticks out, now that’s a genius idea.

Four of the seven tracks I sent made it into the show, and Eddie asked about putting the ones that didn’t get into the show into the catalogue … I’ll tell you, Gary, when I turned on the show and heard the first song … almost lost it. Lol. Told my students at school, and they watched it too. Really can’t say thanks enough.

I’m really enjoying the course so far. The videos have been awesome. I’m taking notes so I can APPLY what I’m learning right away on an EDM track. I finally see this as an art, and using my ears and tools creatively to get the emotions I’m looking for. It’s a real confidence booster. Thank you venerable master!

Hey Gary, to say I was impressed would fall WAY short!  The detail and in-depth approach you take to teach your members is really off the chart GREAT. You have a natural ability as an educator and you made it seem simple yet concise. Well done my friend!!!!

I’ve been in the music business for a long time having worked in many major studios on major productions. I’m not an engineer but you’re explanations of the technical side of engineering is really eye opening for me – a musician.

I am a music producer and have been looking for a mentor that could help me get my music placed in TV/Film. You’ve answered a lot of questions I was asking myself. I really want to make a living from my music by following the best mentors in the music industry.

Hey Gary thank you SO much! Working with you is changing my life 🙂 What I’m learning with you is opening my eyes in so many ways – not just in terms of learning the tricks of the trade, but also in terms of dispelling the lies that destroy confidence and creativity.  I owe so much of this to your amazing guidance.

Hey Gary! This week, I actually have my first paying client who wants me to produce their song for them. And more that are interested. Can you believe it? Some amazingly gifted songwriters are letting me help them present their gift to the world! Thanks for all you do!

Hi Gary. You’ve completely changed the way I approach music and recording now and my works improved greatly because of it. I feel very fortunate to have you as a mentor, you’ve helped me transition to a whole new working life that I didn’t think was possible.

“Thank you for sharing your knowledge/tips/secrets. Your insight and experience as a producer is most valuable and provided significant depth/encouragement to a budding composer such as myself! Thank you for all that you do and for being an inspiration!”

I am reading “The Home Studio Bible” and when you tell the story of the serendipitous meeting with Quincy Jones, one of my most cherished inspirations (including Michael Jackson), on the eve of submitting Chapter One and you asked Quincy what words of wisdom he would want you to share with all of us…I am moved to tears! And joy! I am in the right place, at the right time, with the right mentor (s). I’m so grateful.

“The Lucrative Home Studio is filling all the gaps that I had even after working in one of the last holy grails of recording studios. IT IS FLIPPING AMAZING! I am so grateful for this work.”

Learn how to build a state-of-the-art, home studio that consistently produces top-quality and professional recordings, so you can STOP shelling out thousands of dollars to record, mix, and master your music.

What separates really successful home studios from the rest? What’s really the secret to getting that professional, million-dollar studio sound from your bedroom recording studio? What is going to help your home studio stand apart, so you can crank out hits and attract high paying bands and clients?

I’m going to tell you right now it’s NOT all about your gear. The answer is a lot simpler (and a lot more affordable). Let me explain…

Look, with all the incredible music that’s released everyday, it’s easy to feel frustrated – like the tracks you produce just don’t make the cut. Try as you may, you just can’t seem to get that polished radio-ready sound.

You want to be able to work a song from start to finish. To track instruments and vocals, to create the perfect mix, and to master your tracks to industry standards that make people say “wow”.

You think your home studio should be a state-of-the-art facility that can deliver across any genre or situation. But you just can’t afford to shell out thousands of dollars for the top-of-the-line music recording equipment and plugins all the pros swear by.

Or maybe you already have a home studio and are tired of working 100 hour weeks on soul-destroying projects for people who don’t appreciate your work. You can’t seem to charge what it takes to make a decent living and you can’t attract your next-level clients who can really pay the bills.

What you need is a reliable home studio setup that does the job while avoiding all the gear traps and myths that leave many home studio owners deep in debt.

Because here’s the secret: the gear you use plays a very small role in how much you can achieve with your home studio.

What you need are the production skills, a well-trained ear, along with a business mindset and the kind of confidence in yourself that creates success. If you have all that, you can produce top-quality recordings and attract high-paying clients with even the most basic gear.

If you want to increase your success in the world of music production then it behooves you to approach your craft, and your business, from the viewpoint of enhancing, as a top priority, the most vital link in the chain of music production and the business of music: YOU.

YOU are the most vital link in the chain of music production.

Don’t believe us? Lucrative Home Studio instructor Gary Gray made 5 figures in his first year of operating an incomplete home studio.

Gary didn’t invest in soundproofing or upgrading his rig until after he had made a significant amount of money producing tracks for clients like Disney Music Group and 20th Century Fox. FIVE FIGURES EARNED on a setup that initially cost him less than $2000.

With his fully digital home studio, Gary’s been able to mimic analog recordings of million-dollar hit songs that fool even the producers of the original tracks. And THAT is the kind of expertise and confidence you will get from the Lucrative Home Studio course.

The Lucrative Home Studio is built on three principles:

Upgrade your ear, not your gear.
A lot of music production colleges will tell you to go out and buy a bunch of specific plugins… In the Lucrative Home Studio you’ll work with what you have. We will help you develop unshakable confidence in your ear so you can pump out high quality mixes with any setup. You’ll learn how to consistently focus on the single largest issues at any point in your mix with our unique Music Production Ear Training Exercises.

Reach across genres.
There is incredible power in being able to tap into the wisdom and experience of others across the musical spectrum. We will show you how to reach across genres and push the boundaries of your own potential and expertise by identifying and pulling advantageous ideas from other genres.

Master business, creativity and technology.
In the Lucrative Home Studio course, you WILL learn production tips and tricks that will make your tracks stand out from a technical standpoint. But you’ll also go way beyond that and learn the secrets to seamlessly managing a home studio enterprise from sales and operations, administration, marketing, networking and closing clients. Creativity and business go hand-in-hand, and how you interact with clients and potential studio clients and how you organize your business will make a HUGE impact on the success of your home studio.

What if I sign up and don’t like it?
We have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee – sign up for either version of the Lucrative Home Studio and if for any reason you don’t think it’s for you – just ask for your money back within 30 days and receive a complete refund.

Why should I sign up for the Coaching Version?

With the optional Coaching Calls, you’ll get a music production mentorship. Gary can dig much deeper into your situation and actually show you how things are done, walk through examples with your music, and brainstorm ideas with you in real time. Plus, he will ask you questions about your situation, giving him a better idea of what you need to move forward. In short, you will get a much more detailed analysis of your unique situation and clearly resolve any issues you may be having with your home studio, your music and your clients over a 6 month period.

What if I can’t make a Coaching Call?
That’s okay! We know life can get in the way so we record every Coaching Call and make the video available in the Coaching Call archive library which you will have 24X7 access to for the entire 6 months. You can also submit any questions you have ahead of time, even if you can’t make the live call, and watch the recorded video to get your answers as if you were there.

Is there any software I need to participate in the Coaching Calls?
We use a video conferencing program called Zoom. It is free to download at You can use your phone, computer or laptop to join in the call, so long as you are connected to the internet.

Can I continue with Coaching after my 6 months are over?
Yes! You will have the opportunity to extend your Coaching Calls and add on another 6 months should you choose to continue. Gary can be your mentor for as long as you wish.
