Creating a high-quality demo is the first major milestone of any artist and the bread and butter of a producer looking to grow in the music industry. But with such heavy competition and with increasingly picky labels, how do you become the first choice?
This music production bootcamp is designed to open up the industry’s secrets of music production, giving you more opportunities to get where you want to be. Regardless of the music you produce, this intensive but fun music course will completely revolutionise the way you record and mix your music.
With simple techniques that make a huge difference, and with a special guest appearance from platinum-record-selling producer Paul Herman, you’ll be able to give your songs the professional treatment. Once completed, you’ll know how to create the music that record labels are looking for, and how to ensure they pick you above the competition.
Songwriters and artists
One of the biggest hurdles facing songwriters and artists is not writing and performing music, but making a high-quality recording. This production bootcamp will remove that barrier to your success, teaching you the special techniques used by current music industry pros. By the end of the course, you’ll know how to refresh your demos, helping you catch the eyes (and ears) or the big labels.
Producing well requires technical and creative skill. This course teaches you both. Our industry professionals will give you the tips and tricks that will turn your demos and records into powerful, money-making opportunities. Since we work in the music industry ourselves, we stay up to date with all the most recent techniques, allowing us to teach them to you.
You’ll need to bring the following:
Please be aware, you’ll also need to have a good knowledge of Logic Pro X to get the most out of the course.
Day 1 – Creating killer tracks
The art of vocal production
Day 2 – Exclusive masterclass with industry professional Paul Herman
