I recorded a series of music production tutorials (some time ago now) with a view to sharing some of the tips or tricks that I think help create exciting tracks. Some of them are aimed at entry level composers and producers whilst some of them tackle slightly more advanced elements.
Unfortunately they proved too time consuming to make so are now on the back-burner. I do however have an ongoing series called Musical Musings where I offer music industry advice or learnings on all elements of being a freelance composer or music producer.
