About our music production for beginners course

Being able to produce music to a professional standard is fundamental if you’re looking for a hands-on role in creating records. Whether you’re an artist or a fledgling producer, you need to know the tips and tricks that put your songs a step above the competition.

This incredible Introduction To Music Production course is led by our professional mentors who currently work in the industry with major artists. They’ll teach you how to use basic (but not always obvious) techniques to transform your music from a scratchy home recording, into a quality take that sounds more expensive than it is. You’ll learn how to use your chosen DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) more efficiently, how to record and polish songs yourself, and how to use MIDI and audio tracks to fill in any gaps in your song.

Many of our students end up wanting more information about music production after this course. That’s why we’ve set up a three-day music production bootcamp, too. If you feel you already know the basics in this course and want something a bit more technical, or if you’re a returning student wanting more, check out our production bootcamp.
