Learn Music Production
Leveljam is one of the oldest music production training and music programming training institutes in India. Based in Mumbai we have imparted thousands of hours of music production training to students of all age groups and have churned out many budding and established music producers of repute. We have over the years consciously moved away from a classroom-based teaching format to long distance online learning. Thanks to the Coronovirus pandemic that gripped the world starting from the early months of 2020 and the fact that education and even work has now moved to a home-based online system, we have realised that we were ahead of the curve and graduating to an online based teaching format was a step in the right direction.
Why Online Learning
Music Production is a field of work that is tailor-made for online education. It is a technical process that is based on knowledge of mostly software tools that can be not only brought online but also installed on the student’s computer or laptop by the student himself or remotely by a technician sitting in any corner of the world! All the student needs is a decent internet connection and the music production softwares and VST’s that are required to create music on the computer. Learning and mastering music production is solitary work and being alone in a room at home with one’s computer and being taught one-on-one by a private online instructor is actually the fastest way to becoming an expert music producer!
How to Become a Music Producer
Our online music production course will introduce learners to the theoretical and practical aspects of MIDI which is electronic music production as well as audio recording, music programming, sound design and sound engineering. Students will be guided in a step-by-step manner of the methodology of modern music production in various music genres from pop music to EDM to rock & Bollywood. Students will learn to program songs through DAW’s (Digital Audio Workstations) such as Studio One, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Cubase and FL Studio and also learn general synthesis and the various methods of synthesis achieved through the most commonly used DAW’s and Virtual Studio Instruments (VSTi’s). Our music production course will enable students to program and arrange complete songs from scratch, learn to produce drum beats and grooves, learn how to use the most commonly used VST’s, synths and Romplers such as Omnisphere, Massive, Nexus, Stylus etc., learn how to use eq, compressors and other effects processors and finally how to mix and master your songs to create a slick and polished song that sounds professionally produced.
How It Works
Call us for a free consultation about your goals or your son’s / daughter’s musical goals. We will discuss your or your ward’s current knowledge about music and the genre of music that you want to start creating. Click on the call button below!
We send you a list of the minimum hardware setup that you would need to start producing music from home such as cheapest mics, speakers, sound cards and also PC configuration such as motherboard, processor, ram etc.
We remotely set up all softwares on your PC or Mac including DAW’s and VST’s so that you have all the softwares, virtual studio instruments, libraries and samples required to start producing world class songs from your home studio.
Your music production tutor starts training you in 1.5 hr. sessions 2 or 3 times / week depending on your current level of competence and understanding of music theory and how fast you are able to learn and grasp music production techniques.
Our informal mentor-student approach ensures that your music production tutor will always be around to help you when you get stuck even after the course is over. Whether it is DAW or VST-related help or other tech support we are always there!
Why We are Better
Thanks to our over decade long experience in teaching music production we know the hurdles that most newcomers and students face when trying to learn music production. We know where the students get stuck and what are the shortcuts that they need to know to fast track the learning process. Whereas other institutes can take more than 1 year or even more to teach you music production we have condensed the learning process to a 3 month period.
Learning music production as most students and parents find out is not just paying the fees for the learning part. You will also need to spend on hardware such as mics, midi keyboard, speakers etc. When you factor in the cost for a high end PC or Mac, the costs quickly add up. With us, we take care of all music software and VST’s costs which are factored in our tuition fees itself. So you dont have to pay your nose for installation of DAW’s and VST’s.
After spending ₹ 3 – 4 lakhs and even more and many months trying to learn music production, the real job begins viz. trying to find a job that pays well and leads to a satisfying and fulfilling career. Due to our reputation in the music production space, we hook up our students with well known music programmers, studios and production houses. And if you are talented enough you can even start teaching our new students! And we pay well!
How We Differ
Unlike other music production institutes which consist of a typical teacher-student classroom setting, we on the other hand consider ourselves as your partner – someone who will work with you to make your dreams come true! We understand that you want to make music in a particular style of music and want to get your music heard and appreciated by the public. Before you start learning we try to understand the genre of music that you want to create and accordingly tailor the teaching syllabus according to your needs. For e.g. why waste time learning synthesis and sound design when your genre is rock and all you want to know is how to program a song using Addictive Drums, Guitar Rig and EZ Bass?! This not only speeds up the learning process by focusing with a laser-like approach on a few selected VST’s but also frees up your time to practice and get better at your craft!
When you enrol for our online Music Production course, we help you to first of all ensure that you prepare your home studio in the right manner which includes advice on choosing the right location in your house, how to eliminate all background noise, basic acoustic treatment of your room and placement of your equipment. After that we help you choose the right computer for your task whether Mac, Hackintosh or PC. If you need help in assembling your computer from scratch we can help you with that as well. After that we advice you on the right music production equipment to buy that fits within your budget. That includes choosing the right DAW for your need, choosing your audio interface, studio monitors, microphone and headphones. We also install all the softwares and VST’s for you! Once you have your home recording studio in place, it is time to start learning!
