Introduction to Music Production

Course Summary

Music Production is the process of creating music, where ideas are converted into actual songs. It is where the creative meets the technical, in music. Music creation today has come far from the tedious task that it was years before, to now enable musicians anywhere in the world, however young or old, to make music from their very own bedrooms and home studios.
The ‘Introduction to Music Production course for teens was developed to help young creative minds to express themselves through music and to translate their ideas into songs. We here at MoveForward Beats hope to inspire these young musicians to make their own music to impact today’s music industry.

This exciting introductory course is divided into 2 levels, with each level comprising 12 fun-filled sessions of 1 hour each, where the students explore the ‘how’s and ‘why’s of music production. The classes are conducted on a one-on-one basis, personalized to meet the interests and learning ability of each student. ‘Introduction to Music Production’ Course is built on live projects and hands-on music creation sessions, using an Online Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) – ‘SoundTrap’. The students will be provided access to a premium SoundTrap account upon enrollment.
