Description

This CScales course will cover the composition, sound design, and overall fundamental production for the drop of Stay by Zedd and Alessia Cara. The goal is to make music production less confusing and more an intuition so students will be able to make their own original music fast and efficiently. Instead of just focusing on teaching you how to turn knobs and adjust levels, we'll be teaching you the whys: the decisions and reasoning behind the production. We'll also be going through some exercises to train your ear in order to make sound design an intuition.

By re-creating the drop of Stay you will learn:

  • How to use FL Studio, a powerful DAW used by many mainstream artists
  • How to create a drop from scratch.
  • How to design sounds intuitively.
  • Exercises that teach you fundamentals of composition
  • The secret to making compositions instead of 8 bar loops
  • How to produce in a way that is easy to understand, creating a REAL project

We make music simple. You will walk away with skills and confidence of how to work with FL Studio and create your first drop. It doesn’t require any musical experiences at all. Just learn and have fun!

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to learn music production
