Getting Started in Music Production


Course Overview

Are you interested in music technology? Have you ever had a great song idea but did not know how to explain it? Would you like to learn how to record and create music using a computer? This course is designed to take you through the basics of the discipline. Often musicians are held back by not being able to adequately 'demo' their ideas. On this course, you will learn about the equipment you need to start recording, how to set it up at home, how to navigate the software, and the basic skills needed to get you started on your first track. By the end of this lesson series, students will have a decent grasp on the fundamentals of music production and will feel confident in expressing their ideas through this medium.
