How To Start Producing
How To Start Producing
Many DJs want to further their DJ career by learning how to produce and remix their own tracks. As a DJ, if you have your own tracks you can play them in your DJ sets to make your sets more unique to you. DJs aspire to release their own music so that they can gain popularity which will lead to more and better paid DJ gigs. If you want to progress as a DJ you need to learn how to produce.
Learn how to produce the hard way
If you want to learn how to produce the hard way you can scroll through YouTube to find videos for free but this often means hours of wasted time on outdated videos that don't fully explain why you are doing things. YouTube videos are great for specific things, like perhaps a small tutorial on a specific synth or plugin. YouTube is also great if you're on a budget but it's very hard to learn how to produce on YouTube without getting very frustrated.
Learn how to produce the easy way
If you want to learn how to produce the fastest and easiest way you need to take one-to-one mentorship. Learning in a group is great but if you want to learn fast and in more detail opt for one-to-one classes. All our music production courses are taught this way because it gives the best results.
It's very important to learn how to produce with your own style of music, not anyone else's.
One of the best thing about one-to-one music production lessons is that you can focus on learning how to produce your favourite style of music. Every genre is different so it's ideal to learn this way. In addition, another great benefit of one-to-one learning is that you can choose your tutor and your lesson times. Our music production lessons are available seven days a week from 10 am till 10 pm. Just book our course and then follow the instructions in your email to choose your tutor and your lesson times.
