Course Modules:

Week 1: Intro to modern music production

This is where it all starts! During this intro class you will get an intro to the course curriculum and objectives. You will also learn about current music trends, the modern music industry, producer key skills and what to expect in a career as a producer.

Week 4: Mixing

Mixing is a crucial part of music production. Nearly all producers are expected to mix songs as well produce them. It can be technically and creatively challenging to learn mixing to its full potential, so it's important to understand the basics and the foundations of the most important mixing techniques.

Week 2: Audio Engineering

During this week you will learn all about modern recording approaches and techniques to ensure that you are able to capture a brilliant recording in your studio, whether that be a bedroom studio or a professional studio.

Week 5: Mastering

Mastering is the final stage of the production process where the stereo file of your mix is prepared ready for release. Understanding at least basic mastering is important for any producer. This module will explore the approaches and tools needed to master your own tracks for release.

Week 3: Modern Creative Production

Being a good music producer is much more than arranging a song. This week, you will focus on bringing your song arrangements to life by learning both modern and creative production techniques.

Week 6: Career Development

Now you have the skills needed to produce, mix and master your tracks to professional standards, you now need to learn how to build your music career by getting paid work and opportunities.
