About This Class

Song structure is the composition of sequences in a form such that the end result is a song. Students should enroll to find out about structure types and how to better evolve your Hip-Hop records. In this class, I will be going over elements of a song and the utilization of creative freedom in your songs to give them an identity. In this project, I will be diving into an instrumental I produced and breaking down each section. After watching, you’ll be able to structure your own song! This class is geared towards artists and producers alike to better understand song structure. No prior knowledge will be necessary as I will be explaining the process using beginner’s terms.
