BEAT MAKING FUNDAMENTALS

Date: August 13th – 15th, 2021

Vaughan, ON

11:00 am – 7:00 pm

In this course we are going to be exploring the “Abstract” process of creating a beat with FL Studios. Learning from industry professionals with years of real-life experience, this course will teach you how to collaborate with vocalists, layer new tracks, and create melodies that stick. We want you to have the best possible foundation and set you up for success. Our course will also include different loop packs that will be designed for you to get you started. You will be learning the process of beat making and the business of placements, royalties and how to network effectively. The final day will include the opportunity to have a listening session with artists who will give you feedback and may potentially use your creations.
