Freshly Squeezed Samples Structure And Arrangement TUTORiAL MERRY XMAS
Structure and arrangement—two concepts that appear simple initially, but are more involved than people realize.

No matter how good you are at sound design or mixing, if you don’t know how to structure a song, then you’re selling yourself short as a producer. It’s an area that many producer neglect, simply because they feel that it’s too easy (and that may be the case for some), or that it’s boring.

Which is why we’ve put together this course: Structure and Arrangement in Electronic Music. The course features 25 videos split into different sections: Structure Analysis, Track Analysis, Workflow, and Song Creation. Each section teaches something different with tips being shared sporadically throughout 

What’s Taught in the Course?

The course is quite theoretical and analytical, which makes total sense considering learning structure is something that comes best through study. As such, we’ll be starting off by avoiding practical work and instead studying the structure of different genres and tracks, scattering tips and insight along the way.

Both tension and energy as concepts make an appearance soon after the Structure Analysis section before leading into the more in-depth Track Analysis and then workflow techniques. To conclude the course, we create a full track from start to finish, placing heavy focus on structure and arrangement.

Step by step guide to creating fresh new hymn arrangements, revealing favorite techniques from 45 years of experience. 

I've identified a few techniques and important areas from 45 years of piano playing experience, which may shorten the time necessary to become proficient at composing a piano arrangement. This course consists of a survey of chords to create an emotional atmosphere in your arrangements. Then, I reveal some "tricks to the trade" that I've found helpful in making my own arrangements through the years. We will discuss and practice some textures that will complement the emotional language of the arrangements that you will create. As we progress, there will be some basic projects, which you can discuss with me through Udemy. To guarantee that this can be accomplished, I am committed to help you develop your arranging skill through the Udemy contact methods.

What are the requirements?

Basic understanding of chords (major, minor); intermediate piano playing ability (therefore, a knowledge of all note names and basic ledger lines of bass and treble cleffs)

Over 26 lectures and 2.5 hours of content!

Eli starts by explaining the series, and giving you a preview of the song, called "Hello Fun." The next videos are all about Song Buildup, Laying Down the Beat, coming up with a Chord Progression and Baseline for the Verse, creating a Pre-Chorus, then a Chorus.

Once the parts start taking shape, Eli dives into expanding the song with Pads and Pitch Risers, forming an Introduction, and adding String Synths to the Chorus.

With the parts formed, Eli now turns to song structure and developing the arrangement. With the song itself beginning to form, he spends the next few videos showing you how to Add and Edit Vocals and Guitars before finally Finishing off the Mix and sharing it with the world.

Learn to make music like the top producers in today's music industry.

This course is the ultimate guide to create a hip-hop beat for the club. We start from scratch and move through every detail of every step needed to make a professionally sounding record.

We begin by going over recommended music gear to be used in the studio when producing modern music. We will cover both hardware and software and what to look for in each to adapt to your needs.

We move on to learning what qualities to look for in the sounds for each instrument, including the synth, bass, kick, clap, and hi-hat. This section is really important because knowing what types of sounds to use can either make or break you as a producer.

The next topic is song structure. We go over a brief history then lay out the top 5 most popular song structures used today.

We move on to building both the melodic foundation for the synth and bass as well as a detailed approach of how to build the rhythm section. We go bar by bar and explain how to use both melodic and rhythmic variation to keep your listeners interested and to create movement within the record.

We then end the course with some final touches and tips & tricks of what to do after your record is created to get it played in the club.

This course is for the producer that has some experience but wants to understand the details of every step of the production process so that they have more creative control of both their productions and their career.

This course is around 2 hours. I recommend that after going through the first time, to go back through to strengthen your understanding of topics that you don't fully understand. Repetition is the key to learning.
