Taking lessons from Sean is always fun. Sean is a talented, experienced DJ/ Producer with a good taste in music. To produce a high quality electronic dance music, knowing what Djs need is important. Sean had given me what I need to start off my music journey.
I have recently completed the 10 Hour music production course with Sonic insights. I was totally new to music production with no experience of the software. Sonic Insights initially broke down the course and tailored it to the style of music I wanted to learn to produce. The tutoring style is very laid back and comfortable making it an excellent learning environment. Following the course I have now completed six tracks, Three of which could potentially be signed to a local record label this month. I still have a lot more learning to do but attending the music production course with Sonic Insights defiantly enabled me to produce a full track from start to finish. I would recommend anyone thinking of taking up music production to get in touch with Sonic Insights via Facebook or the web. One word of advice to get the maximum out of the course take a note book and make notes at every lesson!
I started off as a kid that wanted to make some music, but I had no knowledge whatsoever on how and what I needed to make it. All I had was a free copy of Cubase, but I had no idea how to use it. It was all a jumble of knobs and buttons. But then I found SonicInsights, and I decided to take the course. In the course, I was very nicely ran through all the basics of this lovely program called Ableton Live. Over the course of 10 hours, I have learned all the basic knowledge I needed, including making drum loops and synthesis. I was also taught a lot of useful and special techniques. After the course, I came out confident in making more songs and I started from there. Overall I would hugely recommend this course to those who want to have a head start in music production.
Being a House DJ since the 90s, production had always been something that I wanted to pursue. After completing the Music Production course with Sean, I was given the tools to embark on my journey in creating the music I had been playing for the past 20 years. With the one-on-one instruction I was able to maximise my learning experience. The flexible hours meant I was able to tie it in perfectly with my normal schedule. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn about music production. It gives you a new appreciation for the music itself as well as your creative abilities as an artist. Thanks Sean.
I have completed 10 hours of music production course with Sean. When we first started, I didn't know much about Ableton and it looked very scary. However he introduced me to the software in a very simple way and everything started to make sense even after our first lesson. It was a great chance to learn about music production from someone who has years of experience and commitment. You can definitely feel that he sees what you want to do and need to learn trough his experiences. I never had to explain myself to him, after half an hour of talking about music he already figured what I wanted and needed to learn out. Another thing which was also impressive was the way he explained nature of the sound patiently to me. It didn't make much sense at the beginning but he found a way to make me understand at the end of our lessons. With little bit of this knowledge that I gained from him, I started to look at the acoustic instruments differently. Even the way I use my guitar amplifier or effect pedals changed substantially. I am still working on improving myself with what I have learnt from him because he can cover a lot in one lesson and you may need time to absorb what you learnt. I highly recommend taking notes during the lessons and sharing the music that you are influenced by with him.
The music production lessons with Sean has been a great learning experience for me. I have been writing and making songs for fun for two years, mostly alternative rock to nu-metal style, with a flavour of electronic element. But my past experience with the band was more on traditional rock, under the typical trio instrument set. It is Sean who helped me transform the old-school style music into contemporary rhythm and ambiance. We first went through the basic principle of synthesizers and its application to drum, bass, and FX especially. Then we moved on to arrangement on various tracks, using my own song as an example. What I learnt most was from the mixing part, that consolidates all the sound into a well-balanced two tracks, keeping the heavy riff and rapping groove of nu-metal style. This part would not change the nature of the song by much, but would definitely bring the quality level a lot higher, from a coarse garage-made demo standard to a fine studio quality professional one. Sometimes, the sub-conscious part of the music such as a distorted but powerful low-frequency or dubbed vocal might have greater impact on audience than the conscious part like tune and lyrics. This lesson really opens my eyes for music. Hope you all have fun with music with Sean!
