Introduction

Hello, and welcome to Finish More Music.

First of all, thank you so much for signing up, it means a lot to me that you'd put your faith in me to help you Finish More Music, more often, to a higher standard.

This module will introduce the course, and what you will learn by completion.

This module will also explain how the course is structured, lesson by lesson, with a brief overview of the objectives for each one.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll be more than happy to help.

Big Love

Learning Objectives:

1. How to separate your production processes to get the most out of all of them

2. Why 'multitasking' is as much a myth in the studio as it is in every day life

3. How to escape from 'loop world' and easily build compelling musical arrangements

4. How to use reference tracks for inspiration, not imitation

5. How to break a track's arrangement down into small, manageable chunks

6. How to know when your track is finished



How To Get The Most Out Of This Course:

  • Complete each Module and Lecture in order: the course is specifically designed to be completed from top to bottom in the order laid out for you
  • Make notes on the written and video content, either in a paper notebook, or on a note taking app on your device of choice.
  • Create a file organisation structure on your computer, to easily file the course content into, for quick reference and recall at any time.
  • When following the videos, it can be useful to have a 'second screen', such as an additional monitor / display, smartphone or tablet, to view the videos whilst working on your main computer for music production.
  • Don't be afraid to pause the videos, break the techniques down and try them at a slow pace.
  • There's no rush! You can watch these videos over and over again at any time.
  • Don't be afraid to contact me with any questions or issues you may have, the most important thing is you are learning and getting what you need! :)
  • Feel free to leave any questions in the comments below!

Tasks To Complete For The Next Lecture:

1. Stop for a few minutes, with a notepad and a pen, and reflect upon how you currently make music. Is it efficient? Is it fun? Is it organised? Make a list of every area of your production process that stops you from finishing tracks regularly.

Be honest, but don't be too hard on yourself. This is the first stage of you creating the music you've always wanted to!

2. Create a folder on your computer for the 'Finish More Music' Course, so you can organise all the course materials and content

3. Within this folder, create another folder for 'Reference Tracks'. This is where you can put tracks that inspire you, and represent the standard you want your own music to achieve. We will be using these later in the course in a variety of ways.
