Creating and exporting music.
This is an intermediate course- but wait! What does that really mean?
I always start my courses in an easy to understand manner and talk through all of my steps, in this case, we do not deep dive into music theory and so some concepts that I talk about might be completely new. However the course is structured in a way that most will still be able to get music for their game made as I approach music composition from a practical standpoint.
You'll be learning how to create music that you can use in your games or just by itself.
You'll be ok with little or no experience. With our online tutorials, you'll be amazed what you can achieve, with instructor support and online help.
The course starts with using samples, so you'll be creating your first track within minutes and exporting it ready to listen. You will apply your new skills to your project all the time. Project files will all be included, as well as additional references and resources - you'll never get stuck. There are talking-head videos along with the screencasts for you to follow along.
For each of the sections you will follow this process:
Be taught a new technique.
Challenged to apply the lessons to your own work.
Be shown step-by-step how to build it.
Apply your previous knowledge regularly.
You will get lifetime access to the course and by the end of the course, you'll be confident making you own music!
Access to this course comes with an optional, free community site where you can share games and 3D models and your music, as well as Discord, where you can connect with other students.

I am a self-confessed technology geek and love teaching people new things.
I think it is a real shame that so many people carry around such wonderfully capable devices yet do nothing but the basics on them. Computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones can do much more than most people know. I would like to guide, reassure and educate people about using their technology to add to their lives
I have been playing, yes playing, with technology for as long as I can remember and I still do that today! Admittedly these days with other commitments I do have to watch what I spend as technology can burn a very deep hole and quickly.
As my parents will testify, I have always been inquisitive! even if it meant taking something apart to see how it worked. Of course not knowing how to put it back together again. To this day I love learning new things and developing myself as a person.
Despite my tech background I remain firmly grounded and talk to people using everyday language, unnecessary techno-babble drives me bonkers. This allows me to chat with people with limited knowledge on a subject and help them understand more.
