Structure and arrangement—two concepts that appear simple initially, but are more involved than people realize.
No matter how good you are at sound design or mixing, if you don’t know how to structure a song, then you’re selling yourself short as a producer. It’s an area that many producer neglect, simply because they feel that it’s too easy (and that may be the case for some), or that it’s boring.
Which is why we’ve put together this course: Structure and Arrangement in Electronic Music. The course features 25 videos split into different sections: Structure Analysis, Track Analysis, Workflow, and Song Creation. Each section teaches something different with tips being shared sporadically throughout the course.
What’s Taught in the Course?
The course is quite theoretical and analytical, which makes total sense considering learning structure is something that comes best through study. As such, we’ll be starting off by avoiding practical work and instead studying the structure of different genres and tracks, scattering tips and insight along the way.
Both tension and energy as concepts make an appearance soon after the Structure Analysis section before leading into the more in-depth Track Analysis and then workflow techniques. To conclude the course, we create a full track from start to finish, placing heavy focus on structure and arrangement.
Here’s the course outline as shown in this video (link to course outline).
