About This Class

Once you have your 8-bar loop, it's time to build out your track. In this 34-minute class, DJ/producer duo K Theory shares their step-by-step process using verses, arpeggios, and transitions to compose a demo. You'll learn to use:

  • Verses and breakdowns to structure your track
  • Arpeggios to add musical interest
  • Transitions to bind together the sections of your arrangement
  • Mix-downs to prepare your track for a vocal artist

After taking this class, you'll be able to make your own track beat useable in hip hop or EDM.

Still need to create your 8-bar loop? Check out K Theory's first Skillshare class, Trap Music Production: Drums, Baselines, and Melodies.

It is recommended that you have a basic understanding of digital music production (any digital audio workstation will suffice) to fully use the lessons in this class.
