In this chapter, we begin to pull apart the fundamental elements of music itself, such as rhythm, melody, harmony, texture and dynamics. Through our interactive curriculum and remote study sessions, we’ll introduce you to music theory from a producer’s perspective. Understanding a few of these rules can go a long way in learning how to break them in new, exciting ways! At the Recording Connection, you’ll exercise these concepts while producing a project of your own, in your home studio. Step into a commercial studio with you mentor, and see how these tricks apply to recording sessions with other musicians or vocalists, and how to communicate with them effectively.
