from PASSION TO PROduction

FULL COURSE

COURSE STRUCTURE

The Full Course is a complete music course that will redefine your production skills. The Full Course comprises of four stages: Introduction to sound theory, mixing, career specialization and graduation projects. Every stage finishes with a theoretical and practical examination.

BLANK

STAGE 1 : INTRODUCTION

When building a house, you start with the foundation. The same principle applies to music production. What is sound really? How do our ears work? How does sound manifest itself? What are the characteristics of sound? These are important questions to ensure your basic understanding of music. How does the optimal studio set-up look like for you? We will look at your personal ambitions and, together with you, set personal goals suited to your individual journey.

STAGE 2 : PRODUCING & MIXING

During this second stage you will turn your previously acquired knowledge into practice. After studying the theory, you will get a matching practice assignment for the following subjects: EQ, drum production, sampling, reverb and delay.

We will also look at workflow and creative techniques. How do you correctly start up a new project? How do you get a groovy and unique drum sound? How do you fragment, stretch, and sample? How can you creatively deal with reverb and delay?

In addition, we focus on the technical aspect. How do you make a good mix? What is the correct signal flow? What are the characteristics of different frequency bands? In this stage, we handle important tools for editing your sound. You will come to truly understand what actually happens when you press a button.

STAGE 3 : IN DEPTH

After completing the second stage it’s time to really go into depth. You learn how a synthesizer is assembled and how you can create your own sounds so you are no longer dependent on presets. In addition, we will start working on techniques such as compression and distortion to make your mixes even more complete.

Other than that, you will learn everything about music theory. This will help you put your productions together musically, for example through the use of an appropriate chord progression. Finally, you will learn everything about microphones, including a series of practice lessons where you will record and mix vocals.

STAGE 4 : GRADUATION

You are now able to make awesome sounding productions, but what now? You will follow lessons in mastering and receive personal counseling lessons in which your final project is the central focus. You will finish off the Full Course with a final exam and a final assessment. You will then have a diverse portfolio, your diploma, and of course a lot of experience, knowledge and skills!
