INCLUDED IN THIS COURSE
Our 8 week course is suitable for beginners and intermediate level producers. During the course you will be able to understand the foundations of using music software and learn how professionals build tracks from scratch. Throughout the course your tutor will show you how classic and cutting edge tunes are put together so you can apply the techniques to your own music.
No previous experience is required but this course is intensive and will require you to have the determination to learn and quickly understand the basics of using computer music software. Those who have already started using music software will also find lots of useful technique from the first few classes, giving you an injection of skills which you may have overlooked as so many producers do. We believe that with the right mindset and dedication anyone who has a keen interest in becoming a top level music producer can achieve this, it all comes down to how much you want it and understand that its a process. 8 weeks with us is the equivalent of a year of trial and error learning by yourself so you will cut down your learning time and also cut out any bad habits or using wrong information given to you from the internet.
So what kind of things do we cover you ask. To put it simply – all the things you need to understand to produce music properly. Having the right knowledge is key and allows you to progress without second guessing not knowing if you are doing things the right way. Some examples of things people struggle with which we cover are learning how to properly process drums to make them sound punchier and more unique, this is achieved using a mixture of techniques such as drum synthesis and also layering sampled beats to give you more interesting drum sounds. We also focus a lot of sound design which includes taking a sample and turning it into something completely different and unique, giving your music the edge over the masses using sample loops.
by the end of the course you will be able to lay down interesting drum rhythms, create bass lines using special processing techniques to bring them to life, use samples and synths to create your melodies and understand how to work with everything in key so it ‘sounds right’.
On completion of the course, you’ll be confident enough to open the program and start producing your own full-length tracks and become part of our growing network of home grown producer and get the opportunity to send us music which if we feel is good enough will be passed of to major labels and producers.
“Learn from industry professionals and take your skills to the next level!”
We have compressed this down into 8 lessons which have been carefully structured so students quickly learn specific areas of the tools and get comfortable using the software and putting the techniques they have learned into practice.
