This course will teach you the fundamentals of Deep House Music production using Logic Pro. The full course has more than 36 lectures, divided into 5 modules. Each chapter will give you a new level of knowledge in house music production.

At the end of each week, we will give you an assignment on "how to build a section of the track" using the skills you have learned. You might be asked to demonstrate in class your technique used for that process. The Logic project of each final project will be available for you to download as well. By the end of this course you will produce and arrange your own professional club-track .

I co-founded Audyolab is a music production apprenticeship program on steroids. We organize intensive workshops covering many facets of modern music production technology and entrepreneurship. We focus on hands-on learning over old-school lectures. From day one, you'll dig in and start producing music. It's the only way to learn. Attendees will participate in seminars, attend sessions and workshops in downtown Washington DC.

Our Vision

Learning music production alone is an arduous and lonely journey, and music technology is a constantly evolving discipline. Self-learning brings mistakes and breeds mediocrity. Audyolab aims to improve the rate of producer success by providing high-potential talent with expert training, critical objective feedback, and peer support in the early stages of building his/her production career.

Our Formula

Great People + Expert Training + Aligned Incentives = Exponentially Better Chance of Success
