WHAT YOU GET IN THE COURSE

1
Learn to write tracks from scratch and get your motivation back
You no longer have to spend a lot of time looking for information, because my method is a clear and consistent learning system, with which you will always have your own guide and know exactly what you need. And most importantly - do not stop at what you started. After these courses, you will have your own tracks and will be able to perform live.
2
Powerful and systematic practice
My goal is not only to give information but also to teach you how to apply it, so the second part of each lesson will be devoted to practice, during which what was difficult for you, in theory, will become easy. Particular attention will be paid to the tracks of each student, and their detailed analysis.
3
You will be able to professionally prepare your music for release
Learn how to create tracks from the beginning to the final export: record sounds, come up with melodies along with a harmonious grid, build a composition, skillfully create arrangements, and use effects. Mixing and mastering will become clear to you.
4
Satisfaction with the process and result
Knowing how to create a track is just the beginning. Only when you enjoy the process of creating you will be able to write the second, fifth track, and the next. I will show and open these feelings in you. When the process becomes so interesting that you will not experience the passage of time.
5
Individual style
I'm not teaching any particular style, I'm showing the methods by which you can find your special, unique sound. Learn to write music not with loops. Only in this way can you really make something unique and 100% yours.

Comfortable environment and clear feedback
Participants communicate in a telegram chat, where you share your impressions and inspire each other. And I, in turn, also take an active part, share interesting information and help with advice.

WHAT YOU NEED FOR THE COURSE

Computer
Most likely your computer will fit, but it is desirable to review the requirements
Headphones and midi keyboard
Any headphones are suitable, but I would recommend something like beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro to better hear all the intricacies of mixing
Desire
Without motivation, this course will be meaningless. If there is a desire and a light inside, then you will succeed!

LAYOUT OF THE COURSE

LAYOUT OF THE COURSE

The course lasts 3 months
(2 times a week for 2 hours)
It takes place in a comfortable online format.
The lesson is divided into two parts: informational and practical, where attention is paid to each student.
We work with the most convenient program for creating music - Ableton Live.
The course is divided into 3 modules
After the first module, you will have your first track.
In the second module we will analyze the methods of arranging and learn to write tracks so that with each listening new, interesting elements open up.
The third module will focus on making the sound of your tracks special and individual.
All graduates have access to our community
A place where you can develop creatively, be inspired, and grow as a musician. Collaborations, live broadcasts, online jam sessions, lectures by musicians from around the world, communication, and exchange of experiences. Therefore, after the course, everything is just beginning ;)
