The world of music composition, production, and theory can be super overwhelming. But it doesn't have to be hard. Even if you've never picked up a musical instrument in your life, there are programs you can use, and simple techniques you can follow, to start making music that doesn't sound half-bad! We'll primarily use a program called HookPad, a web app that simplifies the composition process and helps automate some of the trickier parts, so you can get started creating music today. This course assumes you know absolutely *nothing* about music, but have a desire to learn via a very hands-on approach.

Prerequisites

No music knowledge/experience at all. If you've ever played an instrument before, this course may be too basic for your enjoyment. :)

Take Aways

  • Learn how to create a simple song with HookPad
  • Learn basic music terminology
  • Learn about the building blocks go into a typical song: drums, chord progressions, and melodies
