Imagine listening to a piece of music and immediately knowing what chords and harmonies are being performed.

Greg takes you on a step-by-step ear training journey in this beautifully designed course. You start with 2 notes (dyads), move on to 3 notes (triads) and then slowly work your way up to multi note 7th chords and beyond!

Greg has meticulously created more than 30 deep listening exercise tutorials in this course for you to practice over and over again to assure that you master the art of hearing music vertically (chords and harmonies) as the lessons proceed.

Drum loops make or break a track; it's hard avoiding that repetitive sound.

I feel the main reason producers get stuck is the lack of knowing the basics.

This course covers what all goes into making a solid drum loop, touching on sound placement, sound selection, and precision editing with volume and panning.

If your beat feels it's stuck on repeat, this course could leap a new journey to your productions.

When we hear the word repetitive being used as a descriptive word towards music, we think boring, annoying, and no change up.

The trick is learning to create loops which aren’t annoying, training your ear to think, "If my listener will be listening to my song for 3 minutes (average song length), I want them to enjoy what they’re listening to.”

This course teaches you how to actually build a drum loop.

We even go as far as talking about where safe spots are when placing sounds so your loop sounds good no matter what. Then you can use these basics like panning, volume, and other tips for further moulding.
