Career focused music production school

Hi we are Protege

We are multi award winning composer, podcaster and thought leader Richard Schrieber, and industry entrepreneur, renowned producer and one of the world’s leading sync specialists Vikram Gudi. Or as we prefer to be known, Rich and Vik.

We created Protege because we saw that the composers of the world were not being properly equipped to start their careers in writing music for film & TV. To top that they were not given any clue about how to actually get paid work.

We wanted to share our experiences and knowledge and genuinely want to see every single one of our students become hugely successful. We have achieved huge success in our careers and want to give back to the industries that have given us so much money, time and freedom.
