Welcome to the exciting world of music production! In this 12-week course, you will embark on a comprehensive exploration of the fundamental concepts and advanced techniques involved in creating, shaping, and polishing music across various genres, Including: Hip Hop, House, Techno, Pop & Rock. The class progressively introduces students to the role of a music producer, arrangement techniques, various genres’ origins, and production methods associated with those genres. The hands-on approach, practical sessions, and playback sessions with feedback ensure a comprehensive and immersive learning experience.
This course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to bring your musical visions to life.
Emphasis is placed on working with different genres of music. In each genre, you will look at the culture, technology, instruments, and origin story of the genre and then listen to tracks from the early days to the current hits. After a deep dive into those concepts, you will ultimately produce your tracks in those styles.
You will be responsible for producing four tracks in the class. We will take time in each class to work on your tracks so students can get production advice and assistance in person. You will also be working at home or in our studios to complete your songs. After each genre, we will have a listening session to playback the tracks to the entire class.
There will be work due on specific days of the course. The majority of projects will be done through in-class participation. In-class assignments must be completed to pass this class. Students are expected to participate in all class activities.
