About This Class

Electronic music has the ability to make you dance and feel high on life and can also be thought provoking and reflective. With a minimal setup of a computer and a keyboard, you can dive into a world of endless possibilities and create your own instrumental electronic music composition.

In this class, we're going to create a song by exploring the beat, the bass and the lead melody; the three basic elements to our piece. By the end, you’ll be ready to create your own electronic song with mood and feeling.
