Description
Class Level: All levels
Age Requirements: 18 and older
Average Class Size: 12
Teacher: David Cook

What you'll learn in this music composition class:

How does a song like Kesha’s “Woman” become the track, Kesha: “Woman?” What goes into the process of building a fully-produced pop music megahit? How does a sophisticated studio production transfer to live performance, whether in a small club or sold-out arena?

Find out from Kesha’s own musical director, David Cook, as he pulls back the curtain on the production process in this all-new class in our all-new tech lab. David will bring stems from projects he’s currently working on with such superstar artists as Kesha and Thomas Rhett, open them up with the class, analyze each sound and what it contributes to the mix, and talk through why the producer and engineer make the choices they do. This exciting class is for anyone interested in pop music or audio production, from aspiring professionals to basic music lovers, and for those with musical experience or without. By the end of the class, you’ll be listening to music with new ears!
