Course Structure

Course Structure

Module 1 - Getting Started

You'll get started with Cubase in the easiest way possible. Making a basic beat in the first lesson and adding to it as the tutorial progresses. Here you will start to learn how to navigate Cubase's interface, importing sounds and instruments, and editing them to create the elements of your track.


Module 2 - Chords & Melodies

Many people new to music production stay away from making their own chord progressions and melodies. Cubase makes this easy, and you will leave this module with a simple 'step by step' process, you can use in any project to come up with your own original chord progressions. Once you have this you can then use this as a musical framework to make many other musical elements for your track. This is not black magic, this is just easy to understand, simple, repeatable steps.


Module 3 - Effects & Instruments

There are a few really important plugin effects like EQ, compression, delay & reverb that are important, even at the beginner stage, so we focus on teaching the basic uses of these. The sounds in this song are all made using Cubase instruments, or a free instrument called Vital, which we show you how to download and install (this is one of the best synths around so totally worth it). All the samples, presets, and MIDI needed are provided with the tutorial, along with Cubase project files for every lesson.

Module 4 - Song Structure

By this point in the song making process, we have almost all the content that will make up the track. Now it's time to arrange it so they tell a great story. You'll go away from this with a clear idea of what 'good' song structure is and why creating tension and a sense of release in your tracks is so important in keeping the listener engaged with your music.


Module 5 - Recording

At some point in your production career you're going to want to record something for one of your projects, be it a random sample, a singer, or a guitarist. For those who are interested, you will learn how to record in Cubase, how to set up a mic and your environment to get high fidelity recordings, and how to process them to get the best possible performance. If you are not interested in recording, this module has been designed to let you skip it entirely should you wish.


Module 6 - Mixing

There is no doubt, mixing is considered one of the hardest things to master. Although we can't give you all the experience you need to become a professional in one tutorial, we can impart the knowledge and insights we have gained over the 20 years we have been producing. Giving you the knowledge that makes mixing as effortless as it can be. This art of effortless mixing is by far the most important thing you can learn, and it also means the mixing process becomes fun, instead of frustrating.

What are you going to get out of it?


There is no way around it. If you want to get good at making music, you need to gain experience. When you follow our Cubase tutorial, that is exactly what you are getting, not just the theory, or someone explaining what each button does (when you have no context to understand it in the first place). On this course you get real, practical experience, that will actually help you make your own music.


Music Production Skills

It's all good learning about Cubase, but if you don't know anything about music production you will never get anywhere. In this course you learn music production skills at the same time as learning about Cubase. Not only that, but you learn them in a linear fashion, which is the same as when you work on projects in the real world. This approach is far more effective than traditional training methods.


In this course you'll gain many inspiring ways to help you make your own music, including the steps required to get you there. Everything from coming up with melodies, to chopping up loops to creating your own original beats. The possibilities are endless and you'll go away with a load of easy to repeat ideas that you can use in your own tracks.



There is nothing quite like the satisfaction felt when you complete a song. In each and every lesson, you will progress as a music producer, and add more and more to your track until it is complete. Going from the basics of creating a beat, creating a melody, arranging your track into a full song, learning to record vocals & guitar, and mixing all of it together is something YOU CAN achieve, even as a complete beginner
