In this course we are going to recreate the hit song "Hello" by Adéle.
One of the biggest smash hits of the decade, "Hello" is wonderfully produced song, which not only lives up to todays production standards, but also introduces some new concepts in pop music.
You might think these sort of productions come from another planet, but this course reveals, the creators are just as human as we are. We are going to re-produce the whole song with only using software available to most people.
We'll go step by step, so carefully following the course we'll let you have your own professionally sounding version of the song. We'll cover all the notes played in the song, and we'll go over all the details in mixing and producing, so you'll have an understanding of modern sound design principles that you'll be able to use in your own productions.
You'll be able to have your own version of this fascinating song, and gain useful experience in backing track production as well.

Born in 1981 in Budapest, Hungary.
After graduating from the Budapest University of Technology with a MA in IT, my life took a 180' twist, and i've become a full-time musician.
I have around 15 years of professional experience in live music playing, music production and studio work, and teaching. I've always been giving 1v1 piano and music lessons, as teaching is one of my passions.
I've spent 4 years in Berlin, Germany, where i've met some world class musicians, and participated in many exciting projects.
Names from that era include the Celine Dion vocalist Rachelle Jeanty, the superb bassist Noriaki Hosoya, and i've became one of the producers behind the upcoming singer-songwriter Lean Bravo.
After two years of cruise ship adventure, i moved back to Hungary, where i've produced singles and EP-s for one of the country's finest singers, Júlia Horányi, aka Youli. More of my compositions have been played on national television in evening shows, and on the radio.
I've remixed the likes of Amalia, Vindahl, Robert Glasper, and Moby.
Besides producing, i'm also an active pianist and keyboardist, i've recently recorded a contemporary jazz trio album, and i often give solo piano recitals.
