Get the course rolling with an intro from your teacher, Nicolás Astegiano. Hear about his two-decade career in the music production industry and about the influences, life experiences, and projects that not only shaped his music career, but also his ear for music.

Next, immerse yourself in the world of sound and discover the audio tools that make recording digital music possible. Nicolás also teaches you key concepts about music theory to help you write a complete song from scratch and the essential music recording and production techniques you need to prepare your final project.

Now it's time to hit record! Apply the concepts you've seen so far to outline the basic structure of your song and lay it down in tracks. Put yourself in the producer's seat while recording and learn why it's crucial to establish music criteria and how that influences the first decisions you make.

Once you've got everything recorded, move on to the postproduction phase. Clean up your tracks, polish the sound, and watch as your song starts coming together. Nicolás wraps up the course by teaching you how to mix, master, and export your work like a true professional.

You now know how to transpose your ideas into music using digital tools and create songs that strike a chord with their unique sound.
