You can be a music producer. All you need is someone to show you the fundamentals of the software. Someone to point out how to add sounds, move audio regions, cut and paste sections, edit midi notes...the basic things that many teachers take for granted. Wouldn't it be nice if you had an expert in your studio with you showing you how to make a song? That's exactly why I created this course.
Hey there, I'm Dylan. I'm a music producer and songwriter in Los Angeles, CA. I want to help you get started making music right now. You don't need to know every little detail in Ableton's very powerful music production software–you just need to know enough of the basics to get familiar with making music using Ableton. That's what I'm here to do.
I created this course because of a feeling...
You probably know the feeling. It's the feeling you get when you start something new. It's unexplored territory. It's exciting but frightening. It's promising but humbling. I love that feeling! But it can be overwhelming to start something new. That's why I created this course. I want to teach you the essential foundations of music production in Ableton Live so that you can be encouraged and have fun making music.
Using 89 video lectures (that's almost 6 hours of content) I will teach you everything you need to know about Ableton Live. I will walk you through all aspects of the software, carefully explaining each knob, slider, and button.
Whether you've just unboxed the software or you've spent some time with it, I believe your productions will be greatly improved by this thorough and fun course on Ableton Live.
By the end of this course you will be able to produce, arrange, mix, and master your own music using Ableton Live.
Don't miss out on all the extra resources too including articles that helped me learn, free plugins, my own custom racks and presets, and more.
I learned a lot making this beast and I am confident that you will learn a lot as well! Please consider signing up for the course--we would love to have you join us!
