Udemy Drumming for Beginners Simple Way To Learn How To Drum TUTORiAL
Ideal for beginners - this exciting course takes you through the essential techniques to become a successful drummer
Drummers are in high demand. One of the most popular instruments in the world, the basic drum techniques and skills can be learnt in an afternoon, but can take months or years of practice and dedication to master. With time and practice habits, you can learn rhythm and fundamentals, eventually working more complex rhythms and patterns into your drumming.
It's a good idea to start getting some sense of rhythm before dropping the cash on a big drum kit to practice on, or before giving yourself an opportunity to get frustrated.
The most common thing you hear from people is that it's too expensive to learn to drum, but with this groundbreaking course, we've removed that cost-barrier by first teaching you to play on your lap, and on your kitchen pots and pans!
Drumming for Beginners is taught by seasoned drummer Hugh Edwards - a player and teacher for over 30 years who's played in front of over half a million people, with touring bands such as Leatherat and Ark. He's a Sabian and Tama Endorsee and one of the best drum teachers in the world.
So, you've always wanted to play drums but buying a kit is prohibitively expensive, right? And maybe, you don't want to have to buy a kit before you learn how to play?
Well, with this unique approach, you can find out if it suits you and if you actually want to become a drummer first. This course starts off learning drum beats, fills and patterns on your lap, and by playing on kitchen pots and pans with sticks.
Then, half way through we move onto the drum kit, and kick into gear with the more advanced stuff, over 22 custom-built modules. You can do all of this in the comfort of your own home, and we'll show you how to learn the beats, practice the beats and how to realise when you're making mistakes, with not only theory, but practical exercises for you to try out at home. We'll get you playing along to your favourite music, and by the end of this course, you'll be ready to join your first band. It's great fun - you don't have to buy a drum kit yet, and you're going to learn something new!
Udemy Mixing for Music Producers TUTORiAL
Get your tracks radio-ready with this comprehensive guide to mixing for producers.
This course is a comprehensive guide to mixing for music producers.
At the end of this course, your tracks will be transformed into radio-ready, commercial quality songs which you can pitch to labels, contests, or simply release for your fans.
I created this course because I wish someone had taught me these principles when I was just getting started producing music. I had spent all of my time learning about synthesizers, recording live instruments, drum programming, and audio unit processing. I had a pretty good knack for making cool sounds and composing songs, but once all of the elements were piled together, more often than not it sounded like a jumbled mess. It was nowhere near the clarity and punch I heard on the radio or professional tracks that I loved.
Udemy Millionaire DJ Learn FL Studio No Music Training Required TUTORiAL
"I know Music Producers make Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars selling beats and songs to other artists, composing music for games and movies, and from record sales, but they must be wizards or something or went to an expensive college to learn."
"I want to be the next big music producer, but I've never played an instrument. That means I can't do it."
"I love listening to music, but I can't figure out where to start to make my own. Is it even possible for me?"
"I've been searching for resources online to learn Music Production, but I can't find anything!"
For some reason people think that you need to have music experience or untapped innate musical talent to become a Music Producer. Even more common than that is the idea that Music Production is hard. People have hundreds of excuses why they feel they can't become a Producer, but there's something I'm going to tell you here that will change your life:
Anyone can learn Music Production. Music Production is completely different from playing instruments and you don't need to know how to read music. Most famous DJs like Avicii and Martin Garrix have no musical training and taught themselves everything they know.
YOU CAN DO IT TOO.
One and a half months after learning Music Production I got a job in the music industry making hundreds of dollars per song I made. This was all entirely self-taught and without formal musical training and the job practically fell into my lap! This was only possible because of the powerful learning methods I developed. If I knew this sooner then I wouldn't have had to suffer through a normal and boring life full of stress and work and I could have been enjoying every single day on this beautiful planet because I could set my own hours and my work was one of the most fun things anyone can do.
I was shocked that it was so simple. I asked myself everyday if I should keep my methods a secret so I could maintain my advantage, but I then I realized that I can permanently change thousands of good people's lives by teaching this. I knew I couldn't hold this back from the world, but I also knew that I couldn't give this information for free. That's why I made this course, so only people that are interested in investing in their future and changing their lives could learn what I know.
Like every great course, I'm offering value that is worth much more than the price of the course. Here are a few examples:
Learn by making 2+ Professional Songs with your own personal melodies!
Learn and understand FL Studio 12 inside and out, from the beginning straight up to Mixing and Mastering your very own beats and songs.
Learn what steps to take to start making money from your skills as soon as possible.
And much more, resulting in 3 COURSES worth of value!!!
Udemy Mixing Music Learn How To Get An Awesome Sounding Drum Mix! TUTORIAL
Beginners, take this course and start creating awesome sounding drum mixes for your personal music projects - sound better and get noticed more - or if you're an experienced engineer, refresh your skills and knowledge - keep your reputation and identity as a pro mixing engineer!
We've been recording and mixing music professionally for over 2 decades, learn from the pro's. 30 day money back guarantee, no questions asked. It's our personal promise that this course will improve your mixes.
This class is a step by step guide to mixing an acoustic drum set for beginners. The videos for this class will walk you through the thought process of an audio engineer as he edit's and mixes a drum kit. Within this class we'll explore mixing buses, phase issues, quantizing and sampling, and mixing techniques using plug-in effects. In no time you will have the skills and knowledge to start getting great sounding drum mixes
We highly encourage student/teacher interaction, so If at any point you have questions or would like to start a discussion, don't hesitate to ask the instructor. This class is recommended for beginner to intermediate engineers and/or producers using any type of DAW.
The class is divided into 3 Sections:
Section 1 explores session preparation, an essential first step to any mix. Buses and auxiliary channels are used to organize and simplify the mix. Phasing issues between drum elements - which can kill the power of a drum kit - are identified and resolved. Finally, a rough mix is built by panning and balancing levels between tracks, establishing a solid foundation for the progression of the mix.
Section 2 explores the next crucial step to a professional sounding mix: editing. The drums will be quantized by using Beat Detective in Pro Tools - manual quantizing will also be examined. The drum sound will be beefed up through the use of sampling, a popular technique used in modern mixing. Then the sound will be cleaned up by "gating" some of the drum elements using Strip Silence in Pro Tools, creating a professional, polished sound.
Section 3 gets into the actual mixing part of the process. Balance, space, and power are added to the drums through the use of compression, equalization, reverb, and parallel compression.
By the end of this course you’ll be able to
Use Aux tracks and buses to sum tracks.
Identify and correct phase issues.
Quantize drums to the grid.
Add triggered drum samples.
Gate tracks using modern non-linear editing techniques.
Use compression to shape the sound of the each part of the drum kit.
Use equalization to enhance the tone of each part of the drum kit.
Use reverb to add space and depth to the drum kit.
Use parallel compression to enhance the sound of the drum kit.
What are the requirements?
Basic understanding of Computer Recording
Basic understanding of Audio Signal Flow
Basic understanding of Equalization, Compression, Delay, and Reverb
Pro Tools is recommended but not required
What am I going to get from this course?
Over 16 lectures and 1.5 hours of content!
Over 25 years of experience and expertise from a professional recording studio that has serviced bands such as U2, Blink 182, Switchfoot, Icona Pop and
many many more.
By the end of this course, you will be able to create a professional sounding mix of an acoustic drum kit.
Udemy Drum Programming 101: How to Write Great Drum Parts TUTORiAL
Master the basics of great drum programming and take your beats from static loops to complete grooves
To me, there is a huge missing gap from online production videos with helping beginning electronic musicians go from being stuck in a loop to writing more full-fledged beats. So it was my intention with this first video to deliver you with the solid foundations of what makes for great programmed drums, and provide you with the skills needed to begin writing more interesting, musical drum parts for your tracks. By getting these very simple foundational ideas under your belt, you begin to understand more about how EDM is structured, how to make beats quickly, and you find yourself making much more creative beats. At least, that's my hope here :) The course is designed for those beginners who want to transition to an intermediate skill level but don't know how. I've made it fast so that you spend less time watching me build these ideas, and more time exploring how they work.

There is over 2 hours of content here, teaching you the core skill of writing beats regardless of which DAW you use. The idea here is to get your skills up to the next level as quickly as possible, and set you up for part 2 of this series, where we explore some of the more creative uses of these foundational ideas.
