About This Class

If you want to become a professional DJ or Producer and be able to create your own music then this is the ideal course for you. You will be shown the basics of an incredibly popular type of music production software called FL Studio which is used by some of the biggest DJ worldwide.

Topics covered:

- Track structure

- Writing melodies

- Using samples

- Using synthesizers to create your own sounds (includes Sylenth and Serum which are hugely popular within the industry).

- Effects (such as reverb, delay, compression)

- Mixing (making certain elements within a track stand out)

- Using the EQ effectively to make your track sound professional.

Class objective:

By the end of this class you will be able to confidently create your own music and understand the user interface within FL Studio. You'll also understand how to use different effects and tricks to make your track sound professional.

If you're completely new to music production, you'll be taken through the basics of how to use the software, as well as the technical side of electronic music. If you're somewhat experienced, you'll be able to improve your skills as I cover more advanced topics later on in the class.

I look forward to having you as my student and teaching you how to be a professional producer!
