Build a Rock-Solid SENSE OF RHYTHM; Course for All Musicians

Play Everything with a Rock-Solid Sense of Time; Learn how to GROOVE with Songs; CONNECT with the Rhythm Section.

Created by Cooper - Guitar Songs Masters - 100K+ Students | Founder @ Guitar Songs Masters


Students: 8481, Price: Free

Students: 8481, Price:  Free

⭐ How would it feel like to finally be able to play perfectly in time when you are playing by yourself - and especially with other musicians...?

This course will be the single biggest improvement to the bottom line of your musicianship: how you sound like, and how fun it is to listen to you. (And for other musicians - how fun it is to play with you)


Did you ever feel like your sense of rhythm is not good enough? That your playing feels "sloppy" in terms of time-keeping?

Maybe it was when you tried playing with other people, or when you were about to perform solo on stage and you noticed that you're always dragging or rushing through the chords? 

I think that most musicians do, and not only in the first years of playing. 

This course will be the end to this terrible, incompetent feeling.

It never ceased to amaze me how despite the fact that rhythm is the foundation of everything in music, we tend to focus and work so much on all the other sexy things, like playing complex solos, jammin' with songs with dozens of chords, playing multiple instruments, and yet we still forget to dedicate even a tiny bit of work to the foundation of everything - our rhythm!

When your rhythm is OFF and you're not groovin' with the song, everybody can sense it, even if not consciously. (non-musician listeners and fellow musicians alike) 

It'll simply not be pleasant either to listen to you, or to make music with you.

The good news are: working on your time keeping skills is the area that will give you the most fruitful "return on investment rate" of your time. 

It's not that hard to work on it, and it does not demand a lot of time when you practice, yet the rewards are the biggest since once you do work on it - everything else that you'll play will just sound WAY BETTER. 


WELCOME to The Ultimate Sense of Rhythm & Time Course

In the course we will use an all-around approach (both intellectual and sensual) to hone your sense of rhythm and give it the love that it never received before.

The result: no matter what you're going to play - it will sound way better.

You'll also leave with the best practice routine to keep maintaining and improving your sense of time, and maybe even when you're playing a new percussion instrument of your choice!

Here are some of the lesson topics that we'll work on, and how you'll achieve that rock-solid sense of time you always wanted:

  • Introduction to How Rhythm Works and to The Metronome - Your Best Practice Buddy

  • The #1 Most Powerful Exercise to Immensely Strengthen Your Sense of Rhythm

  • How to Really GROOVE with a Song: Make Your Listeners Wanna DANCE!

  • 8 Quick Tips for Instantly Improving Your Time-Keeping

  • Learn Different Ways In Which the Biggest Jazz Legends Use to Tap Their Feet, to Let You Drastically Improve Your Time and Ingrain a Feeling for the Beat As a Result

  • An Introduction to 14 Different Affordable Percussion Instruments That You Can Play: Improve Your Rhythm While Adding a "New Role" to Play in Jams

  • Getting Familiar with Recognizing and Playing Advanced Time Signatures: 5/4, 3/4, 6/8, etc.

  • A FUN Alternative to the Metronome: An App That'll Be Your Own Personal Drummer

  • The Drumset for Non-Drummers: Getting to Know the Master Instrument of the Rhythm

  • How to FEEL the Bass: Really Listen to It and Connect with the Bassist and the Whole Rhythm Section

  • Introduction to Different Apps That'll Inspire You with New Rhythms From Around the World to YOUR Favorite Songs

  • Introduction to All the Professional Rhythm & Percussion TERMS (and Jargon) You Should Know to Communicate Rhythm Professionally with Other Musicians

  • What's the Vibrating Metronome? And How to Get Used to Such a Radical Way of Keeping Time

  • And more!

A better sense of time that you'll feel in every aspect of your music playing is guaranteed when you soak yourself in so much good stuff about rhythm. 

This course is the result of a year-long exclusive study on the subject of rhythm, designed to give every musician who will take it a much more steady and sturdy sense of time.

Why should you listen to me?

Hey! My name is Alon Cooper and I am 29 years old. I have been teaching music, both online and face to face, to tens of thousands of students in the last six years - while traveling four different continents and jammin' and performing with many different musicians. I am mainly a guitarist, pianist and harmonica player, and I also play other instruments including the flute, trumpet and more. I am constantly looking for the best ways and shortcuts to teaching music effectively - and with FUN. The student feedbacks show that I do it very well. (:

Cheers, and I'm looking forward to seeing you inside,

Sound Design with Massive (Lite)

Learn the principles of sound design and subtractive synthesis with Native Instruments' MASSIVE

Created by Dylan Bowes - Producer, Songwriter, Sound Designer, & Instructor


Students: 6612, Price: Free

Students: 6612, Price:  Free

This is the free miniature version of my full tutorial course on Native Instruments' Massive. It is a great introduction to the software. If you like it, you may want to check out the full version on my course page.


In this course we will explore sound design with MASSIVE, the powerful subtractive synthesizer from Native Instruments.

First, we will walk through the user interface. I'll show you how to navigate the software and understand the visual language of the synth. What are we seeing when we open up the software? How do we move from one page to the next? Why are certain elements labeled in certain ways? We will answer all this and more.

Next, we'll talk about assigning macro controls to different parameters. You can use macro controls to adjust multiple parameters with one knob, making automation and other dynamic mixing much more streamlined.

Then, we'll talk about the modulation envelopes and LFOs. This is where we really start to get into sound design. Using envelopes to modulate certain parameters is how you design the time elements of your sound. How sustained is your sound? What about modulating the filter with an envelope? We'll also talk about LFOs. These allow you to modulate parameters as well, from tremolo panning to wobbles to pitch drifting.

Finally, we'll design a subbass patch as well as a complex electro drum loop patch.  We'll put the things we've learned into practice and design our own patches from scratch. How cool is that?

Using HD screencasts, I'll walk you through some of the most important aspects of the software in order to provide you with a solid foundation for more learning.

See you there!

Equalization Deconstructed: Four Methods to Better Sound

Mix more effectively using parametric equalizers and high pass filters

Created by Neal Schmitt -


Students: 5917, Price: Free

Students: 5917, Price:  Free

I built this course for beginner and intermediate audio engineers looking to refine their approach to equalization in the tracking or mixing process. With so many options, we will narrow our focus to semi-parametric, parametric and hi pass filters. In the course, I discuss four different methods to approach sculpting a sound but these are not the only ways to approach using EQ. 

An engineer can play the mix quite safe and make minute changes. Other times, to achieve the desired results require using every dB of a parameter. The methods discussed in this course can help create clarity in mixes, help the important sounds stand out and achieve an overall desirable tonal balance. Or they can be used to make the greatest noisiest wall of sound!

This course is "5-Star Certified" by the International Association of Online Music Educators and Institutions (IAOMEI). This course has been independently reviewed by a panel of experts and has received a stellar 5-star rating.

This is a class designed for music producers who are ready to get serious about drum programming.

Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

I'll be using Ableton Live and some Logic in this course, but it will be easy to following along on whatever program you are most comfortable with.

Create A Professional Music Video For Songwriters/Musicians

Create amazing music videos on a shoestring or no budget that look like the professional music videos on MTV or VH1.

Created by Bruce Chamoff - Web Developer of 23 Years & the first Web Design Coach


Students: 2681, Price: Free

Students: 2681, Price:  Free

Learn how easy and inexpensive it is to produce your own professional music videos. Some people who take this course may already have the 2 necessary materials: a modern smart phone and a good modern video editing software. That is all I use in my videos and I am going to show you just how easy it is.

Just a little history: I have written over 150 songs so far over the past 40 years and have always thought that you needed a lot of money and technical skills with videography to produce those videos you see from the big artists. Then, I saw those first videos from Justin Bieber that got him noticed with Usher's manager Scooter Braun. When nobody knew who Justin Bieber was, his mother put out these amazing professional looking videos and had no record company backing, but got noticed from somebody associated with one of the biggest R&B stars at that time. Also, Arnel Pineda (from the Philippines) current singer of Journey was also discovered by guitarist Neil Schon from YouTube.

As students of this course, you can use these same techniques that Justin Bieber used for his videos and that I use for the Pianoland video.

This Is REALLY A Quick Course. There is No Need For A Large Course To Learn How To Accomplish This.

You may look at the curriculum and think that this is a very basic course, because of how small it is, but nothing can be further from the truth. I designed it that way, because I know you are excited about creating a music video. Why drag it out?

I promise you that if you follow my advice in this course, you will be able to create an amazing music video for your music or band that used to cost tens of thousands of dollars.

So, I look forward to teaching you this amazing thing that musicians need for marketing their music career. Also, seeing yourself on a professional music is just exhilarating!
