The stages we’ll address in our online 1 on 1 music production lessons are:
  • Research and Planning

    Researching is a big part of professional production, most artists wants to share their own sound and their own personality. In researching we will understand better what you are looking for in your production, what elements should be included, what is the writing style and what you can offer that is special to you.
  • Lyric writing (if not instrumental)

    Lyric is an art in its own name, here we will focus on writing style, subject, emotional impact, syllable & rhythm, plot development, rhymes schemes, song structure.
  • Composing

    Melody development, harmony development, harmonic rhythm, style considerations, rhythm section, using pauses and breaks, how structure affects harmonic choices.
  • Tracking (VST, Live Instruments & Vocals)

    How to create sequences, using synths, recording levels for live instruments and vocals, taking acoustics into consideration, ways to layer sounds, live sounds against digital sounds, how to add liveliness to guitar recordings in midi (also piano, strings and bass guitar).
  • Arranging

    The arrangement we choose has an immense emotional impact on how our listeners perceive our music. A flowing and balanced arrangement is essential for creating music that appeals to our listeners and brings up memorable moments.
  • Editing

    In the editing phase it’s all about paying attention to details, it could be a note that ruins the feel, a sound that isn’t perfectly aligned with the rhythm, a synth that calls for tweaking. it’s like we will dive into the details of what we have so far so we can get a better starting point for mixing.
  • Mixing

    Mixing involves looking into each track and choosing the right strategy to make all of the sounds fit together in the most impactful way. Mixing usually involves tools like: EQ, compressors, channel levels, tone manipulators, amps, stereo wideners, analyzers, reverbs, delays, choruses and more.
  • Mastering

    Mastering is usually done by experienced engineers with exceptional listening skills. It’s partly art and partly science. It involves attention to details and problem solving skills. The tools here are usually more sophisticated like dynamic EQ that works on mid/side signal, these kinds of tools help us focus on very specific areas of the song and smooth out the edges.
  • Time Management

    Time management is crucial if you use deadlines or if you are going to provide service to your own customers. Making smart decisions will leave enough time for working at a pleasant pace, enjoying the process and getting better results.
  • Budget Management

    How much will the whole project cost is something we learn with time, in big projects our planning and research skills will help us get answers before we rush into a project that sounds cool, but actually makes us lose money.
