In the Producer I course the focus is on starting to produce your own music. Techniques such as music composition, equalization, sound design, compression, mastering will give you the knowledge that top artists use and with them achieve such good results in their productions.

You may even produce something, but the goal here is to speed up your music production, to know exactly the techniques and concepts behind the great music productions. Knowing from the very beginning how a song is produced, from songwriting, lyrics creation, harmonic mixing, mastering, will allow you to start and finish a song with unparalleled ease.

In the Producer II the focus is to improve your music. Techniques like gain staging, parallel processing, sound layering, advanced composition, advanced mastering, you’ll give you the knowledge that top artists use and with them achieve such good results in their productions.

Without this course you are only halfway there, this is the launching pad for almost secret techniques that will be like the icing on the cake of your productions.

At ProDJ Lisbon, we add many hours of practicing in a professional studio with flexible online scheduling that you can use to practice and record alone or with friends.

The course includes theoretical and practical methods that will help you to clarify all important aspects, and there is also the possibility of career development guidance after completing the course.
