Welcome to the MUSIC THEORY FOR ELECTRONIC MUSIC COMPLETE Guide!

This course is a combination of all three of my Music Theory for Electronic Musicians classes: Music Theory for Electronic Musicians, and Music Theory for Electronic Musicians 2, and Music Theory for Electronic Musicians 3. 

In this class, we learn how to work with the piano roll editor in a DAW to make harmonies, melodies, and whole tracks, and then we expand on those ideas and work with harmonic patterns (harmony) that is richer than just major and minor. 

Production Techniques Through Theory The most important part of this class is an extensive foray into using these techniques in actual tracks. I'll be creating 9 tracks through this class, right along with you, each using a different technique so you can see exactly how I incorporate it right into my music.

Full Sessions After each production project, I'll give you the whole session of what I made using the techniques for you to play with. You can download it, expand on it, re-work it, and even release it as your work.

If Your Music is Missing Something, This is Probably It. If you are finding that you are writing track after track, and while they sound good, there is something they are missing - then this it. You are missing the sense of harmony that professional producers have. In this class, I'll arm you with all the tools you need to produce those tracks just like you imagine them.

Who should take this course?  
Anyone interested in producing their own music. This will get you up and running and give your tracks a unique sound in no time.

Structure 
This course consists of video lectures, which all contain a session in Ableton Live 9. If you are using a different program (or none at all), no worries! This isn't a class on how to use Ableton Live, and the concepts can be applied to any DAW.

Some of the step-by-step guides in this course will be:

  • Finding notes, chords, and keys in your audio program

  • The 7 intervals and how to put them together

  • The steps to finding the key of your track (or any track!)

  • The most common chord progressions

  • The steps to using inversions to take your track from good to amazing.

  • The 4 types of 7th chords

  • The top techniques for writing a melody to fit a chord progression (and vice-versa!)

  • The 7 modes and their uses

  • 19 Exotic scales and how to use them (include MIDI files!)

The course is a roadmap to finding the missing piece in your tracks, or just getting started making great tracks.

All the tools you need to make, produce, and start your music career are included in this course, and the entire course is based on real-life experiences - not just academic theory.

** UDEMY BEST SELLING INSTRUCTOR**

Welcome to Music Composition 101: Fundamentals, Principals, and Myths. The complete guide to getting started in music composition.

This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to take their music career (or music interest) and develop it into something more. Whether you are an active musician or an aspiring musician, this class is perfect for you.

When most people think of a composer, they imagine someone sitting in a dusty attic with a grand piano, a big white wig, and the year is 1800. That might have been accurate back then, but the modern composer is just like you and me. In fact, I am one. 

In this course, I'll show you the techniques I use for writing music in a variety of styles and situations. I've worked with major American orchestras, film studios, and video game designers, so I've got more than a little experience. I'm also a PhD in music composition and a university professor (of music composition). 

Recently I was named as a semi-finalist for the Grammy Foundation's Music Educator of the Year award because of my in-person university classes. Now I'm taking those classes to Udemy in an online format in order to reach more students and give them the joy of Music Theory.

This course starts with common misconceptions about the art of writing music. I'll give you the first one right now: You don't have to be a genius. Music Composition is a skill that can be learned, with practice.

100% Answer Rate! Every single question posted to this class is answered within 24 hours by the instructor.

Some of the topics we will cover in this class are: 

  • My background, and listen to some of my music

  • What you need to know

  • Myths of the composer

  • Tools of the trade: Software

  • Tools of the trade: Pencils and fine paper

  • How do you start?

  • The process

  • Program music and metaphors

  • Character sketches

  • Writing through canon

  • Form

  • Starting with a plan

  • Graphic form representations

  • Film Music and Tension Cues

  • Composing for Films and Games

  • Any much, much, more! 

And of course, once you sign up for this class, all my other classes are yours at steep discounts! Over half off for all future sections!

The course is a roadmap to launching your career as a composer!

All the tools you need to prepare, organize and start your career are included in this course and the entire course is based on real-life experiences - not just academic theory.

Electronic Music Production in Ableton Live (Level I)

"]

Students: 13012, Price: Free

Students: 13012, Price:  Free

This course is completely FREE. To view Level II and Level III, as well as watch more advanced Ableton courses in electronic music production, DJing and synthesis, sign up for a membership at Noiselab. Noiselab is the top online school for electronic musicians.

The purpose of this course is to teach you what a DAW (digital audio workstation) is, why Ableton Live is a unique DAW, the difference between the Session View and Arrangement View, how to work with midi instruments and audio material, and much more.

In this course you'll develop a strong understanding of the program's interface and its many preference settings. Understand how to use Live's browser to quickly sample sounds in your tracks without having to spend time inefficiently searching your computer. We'll also discuss the build blocks of Live - clips. All musical elements in Live are contained in either audio or MIDI clips, so it is very important for us to understand what clips are, how they function, and how they can be used to create full compositions. Clips are the key to us creating and capturing our ideas.

You'll also learn about import settings, clip launch quantization, clip envelopes and follow actions. We'll cover the basics of the drum rack, as well as basic MIDI clip editing, draw mode and automation. Then we'll show you how to use MIDI and audio clips together in numerous ways and the usefulness of working with scenes.

This is the first level in a 3-part series. Sign up for a Noiselab membership to access Level II and Level III. Level II will cover basic music theory and composition techniques, and Course 3 will focus on EQ, effects, creative sampling techniques and export settings. After completing these 3 courses you’ll be able to combine all of these elements into making a song.

Learn how to finish more EDM tracks in less time, quickly and easily by using reference tracks.

This course is NOT about sound design, mixing or mastering.   This course is about how to finish more music fast if you lack  inspiration or find yourself stuck for ideas.

The course will cover some of the basics of arrangement and production:

  • Sample selection

  • Sound patches

  • Arrangement

  • Automation

  • Basic effects

Also includes a FREE sample pack with all the sounds and samples used in the course.

This course DOES NOT cover

  • Mixing

  • Mastering

  • Plugins

  • Production techniques

One of the biggest issues EDM producers face is finishing more music.  If you have problems starting and finishing tracks quickly then this course is definitely for you.

In this course, we'll start from a blank project and end up with a finished arrangement in about 2 hours.  I'll take you step by step as we start with a chord progression, choose samples and loops to work with and tweak sound patches to come up with ideas for a new track.

We'll talk about different sources of inspiration for your new track and how to develop ideas.

Then, I'll show you the quickest and easiest way to build your first 8-bar loop and transform it into a finished arrangement in record time.

This course is also great if you already have an idea for a new track but don't know how to build it out and turn it into a complete arrangement with an intro, verse, buildup, breakdown, drop and outro.

I share everything I know with you

Everything I teach you in this course has taken me years to learn. You're gaining 10+ years of music production knowledge in one complete course.

The music industry is an extremely closed and competitive one. I don't think that's fair. If more producers were aware of the production secrets behind professional tracks, we'd have a lot more talented musicians in the EDM community!

What's in it for me?

Personally, I dislike the competitive community that music producers find themselves in. I want to share my knowledge with other producers so that they may grow, learn, and teach me new techniques as well. I also have a passion for teaching, and whenever I see a student succeed with something, it gives me a great feeling - like an addiction!

Requirements:

  1. You will need to have a DAW (FL Studio, Ableton, GarageBand) and an ability to use the software to practice the techniques I teach you.

  2. You will also need to have a very basic understanding of music theory. Throughout the course, we are tuning our samples and composing chord patterns, which involves knowing the difference between major and minor, and also how notes relate to each other on the scale. For example, 'G' is the 5th note of the 'C' chord.   

So if you're ready to learn professional electronic music production, theory, composition, mixing, and mastering, buy the course and take your skills to the next level. There is a 30-day money back guarantee, so if you dislike the course, you can receive a full refund. There really is nothing to lose!

I SHARE ALL MY SECRETS IN THIS COURSE

These are the techniques I use every day as a film composer and music producer. The tricks and tips I teach are used to create professional level music compositions.


IT WILL NEVER BE A BETTER TIME TO START MUSIC PRODUCING THAN TODAY

What do you need to get started?

  • You don’t need to know how to make music or play an instrument (although it helps)
  • You don’t need to know anything about FL Studio
  • You just need a desire to create, experiment, and find joy in making music. It’s now possible to learn all the tricks and tools to become a professional musician and producer from your own home. You don’t need to shell out thousands of dollars for a professional studio to produce your music. Everything you need can be done from home on your computer and this course will show you how.

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

Most musicians never get beyond the level of playing an instrument. They dream of having their songs on the radio or in movies but keep waiting to “get discovered” by some outside big name label. What they don’t realize is that music producing companies want to see a track record of polished music already made before taking a chance on an unknown musician. The musician is waiting for the producer to help them make great music so they can be promoted and the producer is waiting for the musician to make great music before they will take a chance on promoting them. Musicians and composers need to understand the steps and tools in music producing so they can create professional music that stands out from the amateurs.

That's why I created this course - to walk with you through the entire process.


What are the requirements?

Do you have a computer? That’s all you need. If you don’t own FL Studio yet, I’ll show you where to download a free demo version. This course will cover everything you need to get started - from coming up with melody ideas to mixing and mastering your musical composition, to distributing your music online.

  Let’s turn those 8 bar loops into 16, 32, and entire songs!

  Caution! 

    While this is an introductory course for electronic music arrangement, this is not and introductory course for how to use a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). If you are not comfortable in whatever software you use to make music, I recommend you do that first.

Music Theory Basics for Ableton Electronic Music Production

Gain creative confidence and have fun!  Learn to use the undeniable power of music theory to make better electronic music.  This course is compact and covers every single music theory fundamental in existence.  Plus, it has been designed for electronic musicians instead of academic music majors.  Don't be fooled - it doesn't take 12 hours of video lectures to learn how to build and use a major scale.  This class presents no-fuss, bite-sized videos that explain AND demonstrate each topic very clearly.  Plus, electronic music with Ableton and Push 2 is so "hands on" that you need lots and lots of hands-on demos - exactly what this course offers.  

Learn the Language of Music Theory
Developing confidence with music theory (and using it in your electronic music) starts with a firm grasp of the fundamentals.  You'll quickly learn about major and minor scales, triads and intervals.  If you don't know what those are, you're making electronic music harder than it needs to be.  Scales, triads and intervals are the alphabet of the musical language and its hard to do much without them. So, you'll find this course is packed with condensed lessons that explain everything from half steps and whole steps to common intervals (the basis for creativity with scales and chords).  Music theory is a wide, wonderful world and you'll need to know the language if you want to succeed.

Unfold Both Major and Minor Scales and Chords
Since this curriculum is intended to help electronic musicians who use Ableton and Push 2, most of the demonstrations and walkthroughs are presented directly in Ableton and/or on Push 2.  This means that learning music theory like major or minor scales and chords is different.  You'll learn the concepts in a way that makes more sense with Ableton and Push 2.  There are definitely useful aspects of traditional music theory which is why *some* lessons ALSO demonstrate triads, intervals and scales on a traditional keyboard (Novation LaunchKey 49), so you'll see how music theory is based on piano.

Making Beats the Right Way
There is way more to this course, once you get past the essentials.   You'll learn how to master rhythm, discover melody-writing tools and strategies, production tips for reverb and EQ and even using roman numerals to understand chord progressions. Plus, most of the terms, concepts and formulas that you'll be learning are shown in hands-on demonstrations to help you get up and running much, much faster.  Most demonstrations are in Ableton Live and/or on Push 2.  You'll not only get a complete introduction to concepts such as beats, rests, repeats, measures and tempo. But, you'll actually USE what you learn to make beats for House, UK Garage and 2-Step (3 super-important electronic music styles).

Once we've armed you with the language of music theory, chords progressions and some decent beats, you'll discover what makes a great melody.  Great electronic music needs a hook... and the hook needs to be simple, but catchy.  You'll discover that you can make a great melody every time, using the power of chord tones.  You'll see and hear examples of melodic phrases that are built from music theory concepts called motives.  You'll also learn to write a solid bass line, using the same recipe.  No matter what you do, you're electronic music will fall flat if it lacks a solid bass line and a catchy melody.  So, this course has you covered - chords, beats, melodies and more.  Plus, everything is visually presented in hands-on demonstrations using Ableton and Push 2. 

Tips, Tricks and Project Production
This course is designed from the ground up as series of live demonstrations on Ableton and Push 2. Electronic music uses non-traditional instruments (like synthesizers and FX) which is why the final project walkthrough includes looping, Ableton scenes, reverb and EQ lessons.  Everything is presented in Ableton and/or Push 2, so you'll know exactly what to do once you're back with your gear, making music.  As the curriculum wraps up, you'll watch a walkthrough that uses music theory to craft an original, complete (if basic) electronic music track.  Everything is done using Ableton and Push 2 and you'll understand everything that goes into the chords, melody, beat, bass line and FX.

Move Beyond the Loop
As an electronic musician, you want to express yourself, right?  There is no doubt that music theory will greatly expand your creative choices.  Once you understand the music theory explanations in this class, you'll be free to move beyond the loop. It can be frustrating hacking loops together and hoping for the best.  Most electronic musicians would rather make their own, totally authentic, electronic music from scratch.

You may already know a bit of music theory and his course will help you fill in the gaps with tried-and-true music composition theory principles and methods.  Every essential topic is covered here in one united, organized series of video lessons.  All topics are presented in Ableton, so it will make sense to Ableton and Push users. The lessons are organized to make learning music theory fun, easy and immediately useful!

This course is filmed in extremely high definition 4K HD and streams in crystal-clear 1080p HD (where available).  Throughout this course topics are demonstrated in hands on video lessons on Novation LaunchKey 49, Push 2 and Ableton Live 9 Suite. Each video demonstration has crisp image quality so that you can see exactly what is happening, learn faster and use the lessons in your own music, with your own gear.

Once you've completed this course, you'll have the tools to write original chord progressions (harmony), melodies, bass lines and beats!  You'll have the knowledge to maximize your creativity and make better electronic music.  Each section of this course features a quiz, so you can evaluate your skills as you go.  As you're instructor, I'm always available on the discussion board to help and answer questions.  You can also message me directly if you have questions you'd like answers to. Don't waste anymore time relying on loops and hoping for the best.  Enroll in this course and you'll be hours away from gaining the creative confidence to make better electronic music using Ableton and Push 2!

Have you always wanted to approach a hardware synth like a Moog or a software synth like Massive and understand how to program it? Well this course is for you.

The goal of this course is to provide students with a fundamental understanding of how synthesizers work and how to manipulate them to create the sounds they've always wanted to make.

Learn essential synth elements such as oscillators, filters, and envelopes: what they do, how they work together, and how to go about creating sounds beyond the manufacturer’s pre-set patches.

UPON FINISHING THIS COURSE YOU WILL KNOW:

  • How to identify just about any synthesizer by type, old or new, and how to use it

  • How to create any sound of your own concept using a hardware or software synthesizer

  • How to incorporate synthesizers and synth-style processing techniques into DAW programs like Ableton Live

  • How to distinguish where your favourite “retro” synth sounds come from along with other classic sounds like those made by Moog, ARP and Oberheim

TOPICS COVERED

  • Signal Generators and Signal Modifiers

  • Types of Synthesis  (subtractive, additive, FM, wavetable etc.)

  • Synthesizer modules – (VCO, VCF, VCA, CV processors, LFO, Wave Shapers)

  • Common synthesizer layouts

  • Incorporating synth elements into audio production

  • Hardware vs. software - finding the right synth for you

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • We cover all the Ableton Live Synths so Ableton Live would be helpful but not mandatory.

  • We cover Native Instruments FM8 and Massive. Again not mandatory but helpful.

Transform and Elevate

Music theory has the power to transform and elevate any electronic music production.  This course will introduce students to specific concepts in harmony, melody and rhythm that you won't find on your own.  Each short video either introduces at topic or demonstrates its use in the real world (on real instruments).  Plus, every demonstration was filmed, hands-on, in crystal-clear HD quality, so you can learn faster and see what's going on. 

Ableton Live (with Ableton Push 2) has several features that are only useful to electronic musicians who understand music theory.  Using scales, swing and polyrhythms are examples of features that many beginners never use (correctly).  These powerful features will benefit you even more once you understand the age-old musical language that all great music relies upon - music theory.  Each lesson is likely to inspire a new direction - either in performance or composition.

This course moves beyond very basic music theory (I cover that in another course) and gets on with the good stuff! We'll focus on intermediate music theory and rhythm theory concepts.  The topics presented here will make a measurable difference in your tracks and will directly build on your understanding of music theory basics (triads, scales, etc.)

Concise and To-The-Point

Every lesson is concise and to the point.  Explanations are complete and the collection of topics will undoubtedly open new frontiers for beginners.  Let music theory inspire you!  For example, you'd be amazed how a polyrhythm (alone) can elevate a seemingly uninteresting track.  Once you get to know the 12 bar blues, you'll hear it EVERYWHERE - from classic R&B to disco, rock, jazz and pop.  Students may experience one side effect: you're ears will begin to "understand" what they're hearing!

Beginners will discover new musical textures that they can use on day 1.  You'll understand chord inversions, syncopation, color tones and much, much more!  Bite-sized video lectures make it easy to learn about everything from augmented chords to developing a better synth lead patch. Plus, see it all done live on the Push 2.

  • Use MIDI for expression

  • Discover expressive sound design principles

  • Get hands-on with sampling the "Amen" break

Content and Overview

Begin expanding your knowledge of harmony with the introductory series of hands-on video lessons.  You'll learn about how to properly play chords and practice inversions using the Ableton piano roll, traditional keyboards and Ableton Push 2.  Chords and chord progressions (a.k.a. harmony) will provide the significant boost to your tracks.  Harmony defines an emotion, guides the listener's experience and defines what your melodies can (or can't) do.

5-Stars - "Do yourself a favor and take this course!" - Matthew (Udemy Student)

Next in the curriculum, maximize your beat-making flexibility with a series of 10 video lessons discussing rhythm-related topics.  You'll learn about syncopation, swing and beat-making patterns AND get clear guidance for practicing these aspects for yourself.  I'll walk you through creating a pattern on Push 2 for these genres:

  • Dubstep

  • Trance

  • Jungle

  • Drum and Bass

  • Techno

Once your harmony and rhythm skills are up to scratch, You'll learn to redefine your EDM melodies with melody theory lessons in Section 4.  Learn to discern different tone types - especially "color" tones and use them intentionally to deepen the emotional impact of your melodies.  Skim through familiar chord progressions (that everyone's been using since the dawn of time) and learn how to make catchy, irresistible melodies to go over the top.  This course presents many insights related to the relationship between catchy melodies and harmonic choices.

I've always felt that the performance is where its really at.  So, my goal is to help you get ready to rock a stage.   We'll start by setting up an arsenal of expressive MIDI controls using Push 2.  Watch hands-on lessons about configuring macros, aftertouch and other expressive performance tools.  Plus, gain insights on how and when to ACTUALLY use these expressive tools to make each performance fun, authentic and totally original.

Plus, the course includes in-depth lessons on compression, limiting and sound design techniques.  EDM is known for pumping side-chain compression and I'll show you how its done.  For beginners, the lessons on compression and limiting will undoubtedly raise the stakes for your finished tracks - in the studio and on stage.

Finally, this course provides practice tips for beat-making as well as developing your live improvisation skills.  This course was filmed in 4K and streams in crystal-clear 1080p HD (where available).  Throughout this course topics are demonstrated in hands-on video lessons on Novation LaunchKey 49, Push 2 and Ableton Live 9 Suite. It is not necessary for each student to have this equipment, but be warned - you'll want to get hands-on to have the most fun with this course!  Each video demonstration has crisp image quality so that you can see exactly what is happening, learn faster and use the lessons in your own music.

Enroll now and begin making more expressive electronic music on day 1.  As your instructor, I'm always engaged and available.  I look forward to keeping in touch and helping you develop your electronic music!

Every producer has spent hours trying to get their basses to play powerfully and yet still remain balanced with their entire mix. We often think we've got the perfect sounding bass, but when it plays with everything else, it's either overwhelming or doesn't translate on smaller headphones/laptop speakers. 

In this course you'll learn the right way to Layer, EQ and Sidechain the perfect bass for your mix.

Course Overview

1. Discover how bass can be divided into 4 frequency bands, and how they are individually EQed to create a clear and compelling low end. 

2. Learn how to design each layer of your bass so they can easily be adjusted for your mix. 

3. Find out why we sidechain each layer separately and how it creates more room for your kick to punch through dense mixes. 

4. Learn the advanced techniques for getting your sub frequencies to play on smaller headphones and laptop speakers.

5. Every producer must know how to use EQ and compression together. Included is my E-book, "The EQ and Compression Formula." In it you'll learn the step      by step way to use EQ and Compression together.

This course will remove the guess work when creating and engineering basses. It doesn't matter whether its a synth bass, an audio sample or some combination of the two. By using these bass layering techniques you'll be able to create the perfect sounding basses for any mix.
