MAKE A DEMO – Course Content
This course is for complete beginners. We’ll provide step-by-step learning in a warm, welcoming and supportive environment. Maybe you’re a singer / instrumentalist who wants to create your own demo at home to showcase your talent? Or maybe you’ve never made music before but want to try production and see if our courses are for you? We’d love to meet you!
Making a demo is not difficult and we are sure everyone can learn it just in a day. On our one day course, you will learn how to make beats, add instrumentals, record and process vocals, create an efficient arrangement and finish your demo with basic mixing / mastering. These techniques will make your track sound big, professional, and loud, so it will be sure to impress!
To attend you don’t need any previous experience with music. All you need is a laptop, headphones and an internet connection. If you doubt yourself, your creativity or your ability to learn… don’t worry, all of our professional tutors know this feeling, and we have developed techniques that will make sure you will leave the course feeling confident and happy. So give yourself the chance to take control of your own sound! 😀
