About the lesson

Music Production can seem like a daunting process. From vague terminology to very complex looking software, it can seem impossible to know where to start...

Or maybe you’ve had a fair amount of time dipping your feet in the water and want some guidance on your next project.

If so, I've got you covered! By engaging with my online or in-person EDM production lessons, you will learn everything from the most basic fundamentals of sound mixing and engineering, to producing high quality sounding music right from your home/studio!

You learn at your own pace. We always recap on subjects you need help on or want more knowledge on.

Requirements:
- A Mac that is compatible with macOS Mojave or later
- Your Mac needs to be running Logic Pro 10.5 or later
- Good pair of Headphones or studio monitors

Who these lessons are for:
Absolute beginners who want to delve into the art of making electronic dance music and Intermediate Music Producers who are looking to up their game and acquire new knowledge.

Looking forward to making music with you! :)

About Chris

I have obtained a diploma in audio and sound engineering from Recording Arts Canada. I release music on all streaming platforms and have collaborated with renowned singer and songwriters.

Music is my passion, so naturally having the opportunity to teach people my field of expertise, which I've had over a year of experience in, has been met with praise and gratitude which all means a lot to me.

I am very patient and understanding of others. I will listen to your concerns and questions as they arise and help you solve problems as best as I know how!
