Marty has extensive experience with coaching and editing for the pageant and competition world. Sometimes in competition, results can come down to the details. Nothing is more jarring to an audience or a judges panel, than poorly edited or produced music.
Marty has been studying the Miss America pageant system since he was a little boy when his big sister Amy was competing. With a deep respect for the program, he went on to produce the Miss New York state pageant handling all aspects of the live show. Marty has edited and produced music for competition at the local, state and national level. He has coached multiple top 10 finalists in talent and interview including Miss America 2019 Mia Imani Franklin. In last years pageant, Marty's work was represented by Miss New York, Lauren Molella - and Miss Oklahoma, Addison Price.

Builds and accents can be built into the track to build excitement or to emphasize choreography.
