Find out more about the 8 Week EDM Production Masterclass:
OK! I've heard you speak, and this is the result: An 8 week programme for serious producers. 

The goal? It's up to you!
1. Produce music every day for a living.
2. Hear your music on the radio / Spotify / Apple Music / Beatport, etc.
3. Tour the world.

What you'll have at the end:
The skills to achieve any or all of the above.
At least 1 finished track that far exceeds anything you've produced before, ready for submitting to any number of music platforms.

How?
8  weeks of modules covering workflow, samples and sound design, using synths, composition and arrangement, processing chains, recording, mixing, mastering, the music industry and building an audience. Weekly homework, feedback, private Facebook community, live group sessions and a 1 on 1 live Skype session in week 8. There will also be downloadable samples, presets, stems, plugin discounts and lifetime updates. Phew!

How?
My name's Will Darling. I've been producing dance music for over 20 years, have worked on Grammy shortlisted tracks (although no wins as yet!), DJed around the world, and had my tracks supported by many A-list DJs including Roger Sanchez, Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo and many more. I've also co-produced music that has hit the top of the download charts many times and done official remixes for EMI (one of the largest record labels in the world). In this 8 week course I share all the techniques I've learned that helped me reach those achievements.

Warning: This is not for complete newbies. I recommend you've been producing as a hobby for at least a year or two, i.e. you know what a DAW and a plugin is!

Registration is now open, and closes on Friday at 12 midnight Pacific Summer Time (or when the class is full – whichever comes first).

PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE ONLY 15 SPOTS AVAILABLE DUE TO THE ATTENTION AND PERSONAL FOCUS THAT EACH PARTICIPANT WILL RECEIVE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, DO NOT DELAY AND RISK MISSING OUT!

This is the first time I've ever run such an all-encompassing programme, and you could be one of the first on board and in the community. ​
