The Art of Music Production

Music Production,

Explore the art of record production and how to make recordings that other people will love listening to. This course will teach you how to make emotionally moving recordings on almost any recording equipment, including your phone or laptop. The emphasis is on mastering tangible artistic concepts; the gear you use is up to you. You will learn to develop the most important tool in the recording studio: your ears. You will learn to enhance every aspect of your own productions, both sonically and musically, by employing deeper listening skills. Assignments will include posting your own recordings for peer review, and reviewing your classmates’ work by employing specific tools and strategies. If you use a digital audio workstation to record and mix, that’s great, but as long as you can record into your computer and post an MP3, you can complete the assignments. As you learn about the art of record production in this 4-week course, you will also learn about yourself and who you are as an artist and producer. It is not necessary that you read music or play an instrument to take this course.

What people are saying

so much

I learned so much valuable information that I have used consistently since learning and will continue to use for the rest of my life.

If you're a total beginner who don't have so much experience with music theory and music production at all, I think this could be too difficult for you.

Other than that i am happy with the course :) I really enjoy doing this course, I've learned so much, thank you coursera!

I learned SO much in 4 weeks!

What a Great Course....Thanks so much Stephen & Berklee....and of course COURSERA!!!

i live in yemen and there is a war going on right know i was really mad at life and i had a big motivation to make music i realized after i started this course that really my problem is that i was listening technicallythat i started to hate music .. i couldn't even enjoy the music i used to lovei just started the first course but let me tell you after i just watchthe first three videos(listening like a producer)it really helped me alot thank you so much Great introduction course, will continue with the next courses!

If that's what you're trying to learn, this course doesn't focus so much on that.

Amazing course and teacher, you won't regret it Thank you so much, this helped me to organize my ideas and artistic goals.Even if you already know this by experience and practice, having someone professional in the area pointing this matter, helps you up to take care of what you were doing by instinct.

Excellent teaching style.....Stephen Webber is the great lecturer indeed..... Amazing.

On top of that, Stephen Webber is a super likeable guy who explains complex themes like reverberation, sound proofing or microphone types in a pretty straight-forward manner without ever being condescending.

The class is short because Stephen Webber gets to the point and gets the important information out there, no nonsense.
