A Peek At What We'll Be Making

Here's a little preview of the songs we will be writing together. All samples will be provided in the course downloads so you can follow along!

The Course In A Nutshell

The basis of this course is that we aren't just simply doing a project breakdown of an already-made track. We build the track together, completely from scratch so that you can learn in the most effective and practical way way.

  • We provide you with all the samples and presets used throughout the course
  • Together we build the initial 16 bar loop idea
  • We then take the loop through to full arrangement
  • We then add detail and final touches ready to mix and master
  • And finally, we mix and master the track together, ready to send out to labels
