"I can recommend this course, which I took myself. It taught me the basics of music theory." - Andre Crom in XLR8R

Electronic Music Composition (online)


Electronic Music Composition (EMC), shows you how classic and cutting edge tunes are put together so you can apply the techniques to your own tracks. No previous keyboard ability is required and it's also inspirational for those who want to finish off the great ideas you've started on your hard drive. You'll learn how to add hooks, riffs, chords, basslines, melodies, develop your arrangements and work with vocals whilst keeping everything in key so it 'sounds right'. We'll analyse and breakdown massive tracks and artists in a wide variety of styles including Avicii, Skrillex, The Doors, Deadmau5, X-Press2 feat David Byrne, Nuyorican Soul, Julio Bashmore, Calvin Harris and more. What made these tracks huge and how are they put together? Overall, you receive at least 66 downloadable project examples and study aids. This is a standalone course but also appears in Complete Electronic Music Composition and the comprehensive Music Production Master Diploma.
