Vova Potapenko dropped a video course on creating music in Ableton live
From basic knowledge to final mixing and mastering at home
The course is a series of 16 video lessons that introduce course participants to all stages of music creation: from working with rhythm, harmony and melody to final mixing and mastering at home.
"The uniqueness of the course lies in the fact that it goes deep into your creativity," comments Vova. – "It is designed to teach you how to create without depending on other people's samples or parts. You will be able to feel like a musician in the full sense: create independently and self-sufficiently from the first note, from the first sound - and it will all be exclusively yours. You will understand what aspects you need to develop in yourself in order to express yourself with pleasure."
The course is paid, in Russian, and can be purchased in two versions. The first option includes videos of all lessons with unlimited access and costs $149. The second, extended option, in addition to video, provides for group zoom sessions with answers to questions, homework checks and communication in the general student chat. This option will cost $299. The course is available now, you can learn more about it and purchase it here. The first and thirteenth sessions are available for free:
