What you'll learn
Create a mock up of your song, using the emotional and dynamic timeline technique to “map” the arrangement of your production
Run a recording session effectively, including creating a comfortable space and providing effective feedback to musicians
Edit your tracks while using your reference tracks and emotional and dynamic timelines to realize your vision for your production
Ensure all instruments sound their best by using level, panning, EQ, and other effects and evaluate your mix by listening to it critically
After successfully completing the three prior courses of the Music Production Specialization, this capstone experience is your chance to use your talent and accumulated knowledge to create and submit a finished, fully produced song. As you go through milestones, you will work on your own or with other musicians to develop a song and vision for the finished product.
You will then plan and execute its production, including recording, editing, mixing, and posting the finished product. All along the way, you will receive feedback from the peer review process, allowing you to tweak and refine your finished song.
