If you want to get started producing music, it is important to listen and think like a producer.

Think About

  1. How can I listen and think like a producer?
  2. Am I listening to or thinking about music any differently now after trying out the XPs in this playlist?
    1. If so, how?

Get Started

  1. Choose an example of music that you like. The producer can be anyone, including you.
  2. Discuss the music from the perspective of a producer.
    1. Mention the specific music you are discussing and the producer’s name.
  3. If you produced the music, consider sharing a link to a recording and showing off aspects of your production

Here are some things to think about and include in your discussion:

  • What are some qualities that you think make the music enjoyable or good?
  • How do you think the parts of the music were recorded?
    • refer back to the XP on capturing ideas and recording sound
  • What types of editing do you think (or do you know) took place to make the music?
  • How do you think the music does or does not fit with a genre/style of music?
  • What types of decisions do you think were made (or do you think should be made) about how the music is mixed?
    • refer back to the XP on mixing
