The final level of the Beat Lab Certification Program guides you through the process of planning, creating, and finalizing a music project.
To complete level IV, the student will be required to create a 2 track EP, consist of one original track and one collaboration track.
The course will cover more in-depth music theory: Orchestration, Jazz Theory, Harmonizing techniques and Counterpoint. These methods will help you write more unique and compelling music.
Level IV will take you out of the box and into the art of real-world recording. Where you will learn the best recording, mic-ing and space utilization techniques.
Then, we’ll go into a series of in-depth mixing lessons covering the art of EQ, Space, Distortion, and Dynamics to help you make your music the best it can be.
We’ll finalize the music with designing and building your own custom mastering chains to prepare your music for the specifics platform you going to release on (Youtube, Spotify, Pandora, Soundcloud, CD, radio, Club etc…)
For the final week, the students will create their artist bio, cover art, press kit, website, media package, and artist branding under the guidance of a music branding professional.
