About This Class
You should take this if you've ever wondered how groups like Daft Punk get their sound. Or, if you just want a crash course in music production, so you can tell people you produce dance music, this would be the course to take.
In an hour, you'll learn how to go from having little to no musical experience to mixing and producing a dance track with vocals (using a vocoder, that alien-like voice synth) AND you'll be able to take these tools to create your own music.
**REQUIRES NO SINGING SKILLS
You don't even need instruments--just three things:
- A computer keyboard
- A built in mic on your smartphone or computer
- A free copy of Ableton Live (DL it free at ableton.com)
I'll show you a trick for getting right to producing without playing a single note. You don't need to be a beat programmer or a good dancer -it's all there for you.
NOTE: The trial of Ableton lasts only 30 days, so make sure you finish this course quick so you can get started on new songs!
After this crash course, it should be easy enough for you to move beyond the song I teach you into new songs, including doing your own remixes and covers of popular music.

Works as both a nice introduction to Ableton as well as inspiring you to try it out for yourself.
No one starts as a great engineer, and if you are starting and want to see how you to deal with eletronic music, daw and how can do good stuff, that's for you! If you're just a hatter, no big deal for you.
Musician, sound engineer and videomaker
I am from the U.S. but I'm currently living in Japan, teaching in Tokyo since 2006, including music production with Ableton Live.
I started a project last year where I am creating my own softsynths in Ableton that are all free for download.
I am a multipotentialite, a person with several passions and interests, but music has been the one thing I have never stopped doing.
I have a passion for teaching my skills to people in an efficient, relatable way. I know how hard it can be to learn a new skill, and my job is to remove any obstacles that keep you from reaching proficiency.
