Learn the art of music production, following Rockschool's graded syllabus
Have you always been intrigued what goes on in a recording studio? Learn how your favourite songs go from a simple idea to a chart-topping hit with our music production lessons.
You'll follow Rockschool's Music Production graded syllabus here at Planet drum with our dedicated music production teacher, Katy Russell, a gigging London musician who has studied music and sound engineering at the University of West London. Learn how to compose and record music, how to use equipment and software and how to bring ideas to life.
Rockschool's Music Production graded syllabus is a hands-on course which covers professional scenarios, theory and listening skills through a combination of coursework and assessments. You'll gain a practical understanding of audio music production, including a working knowledge of digital audio workstations and recording equipment.
At grade 1, you'll learn how to get prepared for working with an artist, and work out how to compose ‘guide’ or ‘ghost’ tracks which will give another musician an idea of what sound you want to produce.
By the time you get to Grade 8, you'll be able to specialise in a particular genre. As an EDM (Electronic Dance Music) producer, you might take a track that a singer has recorded with their phone and turn it into a full-scale dance track. You'll have learnt how to use all kinds of techniques and skills to be able to really bring an initial idea to life.
