teacher about the clinics

“Mixing techniques and a good workflow are so important if you want to produce great tracks. In this course you will learn how to apply the essentials of music production into your own music style.”

Sjoerd

Producer Clinics Course instructor, MPA

stage one

basic workflow & theory

Knowing your DAW is the first step to creating a solid workflow. Shortcuts, placing sounds in the mixer and using external VST’s, all you need to get off to a good start. You will also be taught in basic music theory: how does voicing in chords work? Which arrangements, chords progressions and sounds work best for your style of music? After these classes you will get homework assignments to apply, what you have learned, to your own projects.

stage two

sound & effects

Before one starts building a house, one first has to 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? During this stage we discuss the essential tools that are needed to edit sound. When you turn on a switch, you will know what the actual effect is.

stage three

synths, drums & advanced effects

So you got your workflow in order and can apply mixing techniques to your projects, now what? In stage 3, you will learn the usage of synthesizers, drums and effects like distortion, delay’s and filters. You will understand how to create your own sound with synths, play with grooves in your tracks and apply advanced effects to improve your overall sound.

student testimonials

“After learning to produce on my own, it was great to take the next step in my progress with the Producer Clinics. Sjoerd provided me with so many useful tips which improved my workflow and made my mixes better. All the while keeping my music genre in mind. I now aim to further my study in music production. I can really recommend the Producer Clinics as a stepping stone to improve your skills.”

Tim Verburg

Student, Producer Clinics

“MPA was recommended to me by Franky Nuts and when I attended a workshop by Sjoerd, I was immediately convinced. The lessons took place in a very relaxed atmosphere, making it feel more like a group of friends. Additionally Sjoerd’s explanations were to the point . What Sjoerd taught me I could really implement in my productions, which shows in the music I’m now able to make.”
