The Music Producer Formula
Everything You Need To Know To Become A Working Producer!
Discover The Techniques That You Won't Find Anywhere Else
If you're reading this then you want to make the transition from musician or engineer to producer, or want to take your skills to the next level. I'm pretty sure I can help you achieve your goal, but first let me start with a very short story about how I did just that.
After I was in music for a while I knew that I wanted to make the transition to being a producer. I had a bad experience with a so-called "producer" in the studio, and never wanted to repeat that mistake again, but the problem was, I just didn't know how to even take that first step.
Does this sound like you?
Do you think you have what it takes to produce music for yourself or others, but don't know how to get started?
If you've begun your production career already, are you worried that you don't know enough about label deals, budgets and getting paid, let alone the many creative aspects of the job?
That was me once too, and it took an entire career for me to get the experience I needed to finally feel comfortable with all aspects of production. It was a long haul, but eventually I produced everything from big artists to indie artists, commercials, movie soundtracks, DVDs and even music television shows. Last year I even produced a #2 album on the Billboard Blues Charts and a #6 song on the iTunes Rock Charts.
But I was where you are now once upon a time, and I didn't have anyone that I could even ask some simple questions about production. Talk about frustrating!
That's why I created the Music Producer Formula online coaching program. It gives you my years of experience in all aspects of music production in a package that's both easy to grasp and simple to put into immediate use.
There are things in this program that I know you can't find anywhere else (unless you happen to be lucky enough to become an assistant for a top producer) like:
- What you need to do to become a producer
- The deal you can expect and how you get paid when you're producing either a label or indie project
- The different types of music producers (bet you didn't know there was more than one)
- How a producer can actually prosper in the new world of digital music (contrary to what many will tell you)
- How you assemble a project budget that always works and manages to keep both the artist and the person that's paying the bills happy
- The typical label budgets of today, both indie and major, that you can expect
- How to hire and pay session and union musicians
- How to set up a recording schedule that ensures that you'll be able to finish any size project and any budget no matter what
- What you need to know to make sure that every phase of a project, from preproduction to basic tracks to overdubs to mixing to mastering, goes smoothly and efficiently
- The pitfalls of self-production and how you can avoid them
- All the creative aspects of production, like analyzing and fixing a song or arrangement, music troubleshooting, and getting the best from musicians and vocalists
And much, much more.
If you're familiar with my 24 books on music production, recording, mixing and the music business, or my courses on Lynda.com, you know that I'm really good at breaking down what can sometimes be a complex subject into something that's very easy to understand, and that's exactly what you'll find here.
