Customized Music Production Courses
Having a personal studio setup is essential for recording and developing your ideas but It’s very easy to get stuck when you haven't developed the right skills. There are many online tutorials but if you want to get your music to sound exactly the way you want it a personalized music production course will be the best investment you’ve ever made.
Learn From A Professional
When I was a teacher at dBs Music and Abbey Road Institute I noticed that most students are often very excited about certain topics while having no interest in others. This led me to the conclusion that it's not necessary to know everything about music production in order to make great music and that the most important thing is to optimize your way of doing things. For example, if you’re interested in Alternative Rock, you don’t need to know how to make a commercial Dance track and vica versa.
How It Works
My private music production lessons are custom fitted to your individual needs and taste and are taught on your DAW of choice. You will learn how to get the most out of your instruments, effects, microphones and space which makes much more sense than practicing on gear that most musicians can’t afford.
We will decide together on the amount of lessons depending on your experience and goals which means that you can start from one lesson and go on to as many lessons as you feel necessary. The standard rate for one lesson is €50,- excluding VAT for 2 hours.
Lessons On Location
If you live in the area of Amsterdam, Haarlem, Zaandam, Den Haag or Hilversum all you need to do is bring your laptop to my studio where you can plug in to the monitoring system via USB.
Once you are connected we’ll start by opening a session you've been producing on your DAW (Logic, Ableton Live, Cubebase, Pro Tools etc) and take it from there.
Create Your Best Sounding Tracks
We will go through your sessions and discover what can be improved. We’ll focus on the right way to use EQ, Compression, Effects and Automation. We will also go through basic theory so that you understand the logic behind each technique and choose the one that works best for you.
If the quality of your recordings is not ideal, I will explain exactly what went wrong and demonstrate how to get it right the next time you record. You will receive great tips on how to arrange your song so that it flows naturally and keeps the listener interested and we’ll make sure that nothing is missing in the arrangement.
On top of covering arrangement, recording, mixing and mastering techniques, we will also discuss the basics of synthesis which will enable you to fully program every synthesizer and understand how each parameter relates to acoustic sound reproduction.
At the end of the lesson you will have a great sounding track and you will always have the option to go back to your DAW session and refresh your memory.
Remote Music Production Lessons
It is also possible to have private music production lessons if you don’t live in the area. Contact me for more information
