Get Started Making Music – A Production Course for Absolute Beginners

Have you always wanted to make music but don’t know where to start? Are you a live musician or DJ who wants to get into the software side of music-making?

If you’ve got music in your mind and want to know how to make it into a real track – you’ve come to the right place

Taking those first few steps to make electronic music is intimidating. Between infinite software choices, technical terms and tutorials that seem to assume a high level of working knowledge – It’s easy to feel like you skipped a lesson and for even the most passionate of beginners to feel locked out.

That’s why we created Get Started Making Music – A Production Course for Absolute Beginners

This course will light a fire – learn by following along step by step and make your first track today!

READY TO MAKE MUSIC?

Finally a video course designed for absolute beginners.

Get Started Making Music assumes no prior knowledge of music production software and all you need to follow along is a desire to make music, a computer, Ableton Live Lite (or higher) and the sampler pack that comes free with the course.

Optional extras that might make it easier would be a set of headphones, a midi keyboard, and lots of coffee.

Lesson 04 : Bass Line

Your bass line is one of the most important elements of your track. In this lesson you’ll get some idea starters to build two bass lines, one that is very basic and follows your initial chord progression, and another that adds a bit more movement. By the end of this lesson you’ll know how to record a bass loop and how to build on your chord progression so you can go it alone long after the course is done.

By the end of this video you’ll be able to start thinking about melodic content that matches and brings to life the other elements of your track. By this point you’ll be wanting to mess around with your own ideas but stick with it and follow along through to the next lesson.
