About This Class

Hello!

In this course, you are going to learn how to make beats in FL Studio, the industry standard DAW.

We will dive into the world of melodies and I will teach you how to layer different instruments to achieve a pro level sound. This is not a music theory course, but I will show you practical and useful tips to create melodies, harmonies, countermelodies and other elements.

Then, I will show you how to create a professional beat on top of the melody we developed during the course.

Finally, you will learn how to arrange your beats to keep the interest of the listener across the entire track.
