1. Just bought the package with this course as well as the second one and I gotta say, I learned way more with this than with the hours of tutorials I watched on YouTube. Hell, right at the 3rd lecture I learned something very basic I didn't know when I thought I already covered everything concerning the basic interface ! This tutorial is really good, LJ is really motivating and clear in his explanations. I see there is an EDM part in the second course and oooooh boy how ready I am for this ! Peace, and thanks a lot, from France - Leo Magnez

2. I found the intro & getting started lessons a bit slow, but, you do need to get to know the DAW before really using it so that's all good. Once it got started on laying out the beats and stuff though it was amazing how easy it was to pick up. Really enjoyed it and learned heaps. Keep it up LJ! - Dan Yalg

3.  LJ is a great teacher, not pretentious, nor too step-by-step or theory based. He teaches with a great mix of what's needed to grasp and accomplish the lessons. Pretty easy to follow along, I don't have much of a music theory background, but he explains it well & gives the foundations needed to create music. - David Barnitz 

4. The instructor (LJonthetrack) is straight to the point, clear on his explanations, so no matter if you are completely new to FL or already have some basic knowledge (like me), you will learn from every single lecture something new. Guaranteed. For this course 10 out of 10. - Tom A 

5. Hey LJ, thanks for the great course! I'm looking forward to Part 2. As a first-time beatmaker (but longtime musician), this course helped me understand the layout of the FL Studio land. I highly recommend it for all FL Studio beginners. Best wishes LJ as your music career continues to flourish! - Matt Chan

6. Recently switched from Logic to FL due to hardware issues and must say that this course is great for FL studio beginners such as myself. The videos are short and well-organized. I ended up watching some videos multiple times just to observe LJ's workflow. Glad I stumbled upon this ***** - Christian Andres

7. So far, I loved the course...I love hip-hop and rap music, particularly old school and I think I have come to the right place. I have tried using FL studio earlier but I found it to be very complicated and confusing. I hope to learn something from this amazing tutorial. I would update once I am done with this course. - Ashish Tiwari

8. I'm totally new to FL Studio but not to DAWs so at first I thought that LJ wasn't going deep enough into explaining various features of the application so I rated him 4 stars. After receiving the LOUD sound pack from him via email I then went back though the Game Time section of the course and created the Trap beat by following him step-by-step. I'm simply blown away at how simple it is to build a professional sounding beat from scratch. I've upped my rating to 5 stars and would recommend this course to beginners. At under 2 hours it's enough to get you started with creating your own music without getting frustrated with learning all of the bells and whistles of FL. Nice job LJ! Best, Dante - Dante Varnado Moore

9. Ah shit man I have been into music production in high school but I lost interest because of my boring ass fucking lame ass teacher. After investing in this course LJ brought my passion, love, and motivation back into music production. So much that I already bought and finished both courses within two weeks. Nothing more and nothing less if you’re even interested into music production do yourself a favor and buy into both courses! Good looks LJ for that fire and teaching me - Bell jell 

10. This course really breaks down the major tools of FL studio. Definitely great for beginners. LJ is detailed, clear, and easy to follow. If you have some experience with FL studio (meaning you have already created tracks and messed around with plugins) this might be too beginner for you. But if you are an absolute beginner (meaning you have never or barely touched FL Studio) then this is perfect for you. I'd suggest this course to anyone who is unfamiliar or intimidated by FL studio. - Marissa
