New Essential Music Foundation Course

Kiva_Music Found blog8.13Dubspot instructor DJ Kiva has long been a mainstay at the school, not only teaching Reason and Ableton courses, but designing the curriculum and content as well.

The new ‘Essential Music Foundation’ course is the result of a collaborative effort with Mixing & Mastering instructor Daniel Wyatt and Dubspot associate Samuel Buonaugurio Jr..  The class is designed to give new students and those fresh to the field of production a rock solid foundation in the basics of playing, composing and producing music from start to finish.

The course starts with an examination of the principles of good musicianship that every aspiring musician, DJ and producer should know.  Through the classes, students gain a knowledge of music terminology and develop their sense of rhythm, while learning to build scales, create chords and more.  After this basic skill set is developed, a more thorough examination of song writing and arranging will begin through the analysis of time-tested composition formulas for taking musical ideas and developing them into full-fledged songs.

Essential Music Foundation (EMF) was developed to help students become well-rounded, fundamental conscious composers and creators.  The topics covered within will pay dividends for years to come.  Contact us for more details, the first class will be scheduled this fall!
