I’ve met many budding music producers who tell me they need to learn more before they finish anything.
They need to a course, learn this or that technique, or watch more tutorials.
While these are (occasionally) useful activities, they are only useful in the context of actually doing what these hopefuls are learning about!
Believe it or not – if you want to be a music producer (and not a sound engineer or music production tutor) – then you must produce music.
Not just learn about producing music. Do it first. Do not get caught in the tutorial trap.
Because experience is always the best teacher. In fact, experience is the only teacher who is completely necessary…
Learn a lot, and you’ll do nothing.
Do something and you’ll learn a lot.
P.S. The wonderful original art on this post is the handiwork of my mate Tim from Loudwhisper.
