This course has everything you need to know to get into music production with BandLab (free online music software), and is suitable for complete beginners.
This course is "for adults" because the main BandLab site has a social media aspect - you can collaborate with and message the 18 million members of the BandLab community around the world if you choose to. For young people we recommend our other course "BandLab for young people" that uses BandLab Edu (where the social media aspect is removed). Upgrade to our Premium or Premium Plus membership to add live teaching with Si Gordon and our other music production experts!
With almost 6 hours of video lessons, there’s enough material here for several months of learning as you apply what you’ve learned to your own tunes. Working alongside Si as he builds his track, you’ll go step-by-step through all the creative aspects of writing music, such as bass lines, chords and beats. And all the technical details from talking you through how to use BandLab, to mixing your finished track.
