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 uses the BandLab Edu platform - a safe walled garden that removes the social media aspect of the main BandLab site. This course goes into a lot of detail - the video tutorials and resources mean this course can take you up to a BTEC or even A Level music technology level of study. But of course you can dip in and out if you're a little younger and want to get started from scratch. 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 a full term of learning as you apply what you’ve learned to your own tunes. You’ll cover all the musical 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.
