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. In the series, I use examples from a wide variety of Genres-- from Hip Hop to Techno, House, and Future Bass-- to show that these core principles apply across styles. 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. These lessons took years of study for me to discover-- I hope that you take advantage of all that I've learned and boiled down here for you, and get your skills up and running quickly!If you have a computer, a DAW that you're familiar with, a few good drum samples and a way to hear everything, then I will show you how to make beats that make the rest of your music shine.

What are the requirements?

A computer with a DAW of choice (Logic, Live, Cubase, Studio One, etc.)
Speakers, Monitors, or Headphones that accurately represent the whole frequency range. Hearing bass will be important in this course, and laptop speakers are not advised

Learn a skill that producers like Dr. Dre, Rodney Jenkins, Brian Michael Cox, and even Timbaland know to make beats!

Most beat makers and music producers have God given talent but lack understanding of the technical aspects of music production, such as music theory.

Wouldn't you like to know how to play piano chords, scales, and progressions so your beats sound more professional? Trust me this skill will separate your tracks from the competition.

This course is designed to teach you all the basic elements of music theory and playing the piano but solely for the purpose of improving your beats. And that my friend is the difference! Instead of paying a piano teacher that is completely disconnected from your world of music production, learn this skill from someone who actually produces music. Makes sense right.

I've been producing music for over 10 years and was taught how to play the piano at the age of 12. But when I was learning, all the concepts seemed foreign to me and were hard to understand. I eliminate this problem and will promise you that in under an hour you will know everything you need to make your beats sound more musically sound and original. (This is very important in these days where anyone can get a computer and software program and start making beats)

So take action on your dream, enroll in this course, and learn a skill that the majority of your competition doesn't have!

Thanks for your time and I'll see you on the other side.

- Joseph

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.
