Producer Course Beginner

In this hands-on course you will learn everything you need to know about producing your own tracks in manageable small groups, 3 hours per week, live on location.

Within 5 months, you will be able to produce professional tracks independently, thanks to daily feedbacks and a well-thought-out curriculum.

Our learning content goes far beyond the functions of a DAW such as Ableton Live. We give you a far-reaching insight into the diverse possibilities of modern electronic music production. In addition, by taking this course you will develop a feeling for the right choice of sounds and discover the workflow that best suits your style.

Our syllabus covers the basics of sound engineering, sound design, arranging, harmony and beat producing, as well as working with the mixer, compressor and creative use of plug-ins.

At the end of the course you will receive an EMS certificate.

The Producer course is more technical,
Our Composer course is more inventive and creative.

Composer Course / Creative Suite

Writing songs is usually a personal process. What works for you may not work for others. It is the process of discovering sound, melody and lyrics that complement each other harmonically.

In this course we will analyse the melodic and compositional structure of whole tracks. We will reconstruct them in detail to understand what made them so successful.

We will take the fear out of playing the keyboard and show you how to recognise basic notes and chords, play them and compose your own.

Creative sound design is also a part of it, as well as ear training and sensitisation for tones and sounds. In jam sessions you learn to improvise or spontaneously implement melodies and beats live and intuitively.

In this course we will give you the musical tools to make your tracks stand out from the rest.

At the end of the course you will receive an EMS certificate.

Mixdown

The mixdown is one of the most important steps of a producer. No matter how cool your track is, it will never work without a technically clean mixdown.

“Clean” doesn’t mean that everything should sound clinical. The challenge is to make a mixdown sound so that all single tracks harmonise with each other, without clashing and sound powerful.

Yes, of course, mastering will save everything! But if your mixdown sounds awful, your mastering engineer won’t be able to work miracles.

At the end of this coaching you will be able to create a mixdown that is clean, transparent, punchy – and works in the club.

Together with our coach you´ll work step-by-step on your technical skills to create a phat and clean mixdown. In our studio in Berlin, all instrument groups and frequency ranges are covered to optimally prepare your tracks for the final step, mastering.

The focus is on electronic club-oriented music.

Content

  • 3D, clean low end and powerful drums for the club
  • Dynamic processing, compressor/limiter
  • Stereo image
  • Gain staging
  • EQing and punchy drum beats
  • How to Mix: Bass, Drums, Vocals, Synths, Percussion, FX
