I am creating a music production course. I need your opinion :)

I am currently starting to develop a comprehensive electronic music production course. I would love to know from you guys what you'd think is the biggest sticking points for beginners. What should be covered in that course? What is something that's often missing in tutorials or courses?

Thanks a ton!

You can leisurely browse the newbie forum and quickly discover what people are having the most issues with. Watch some other tutorials and find the holes in their methods/approach, then fill those holes with your experience.

Everyone learn differently, so there are no specific things that tutorials and courses leave out, if they leave out anything at all. What course or tutorial are you referring to,as they are all different.

There are millions of tutorials and courses out there, to rise up to the top, it would have to be fun, cheap or free, interesting, educational and thorough.

Good luck,

I'd just want to say that your focus should be on learning then to finish the tracks they start. Not sure how that is done but sure, if your taking about synthesis then let it be on synthesis, same for EQing and compression but as soon as your out of that and if the course continues, make sure to show how finishing a track is done. Never had a problem with that before but now I can't seem to do it and I've noticed that lots of people have this issue so it's really something that should be a sticking point in your course!

Good look and make sure to let us know when it's done and how it has proceed.

People do not, or cannot Finnish a song for all different reasons. some can be family, time, mental, your ability to decide, having the option to always revisit your mix.

You would have to get inside each persons head on why they cannot finish a song and each solution would be different.

Of course, but seeing / hearing someone finish a song and the ability to get back to it could be very comforting when you're trying to finish your own but of course there are different reasons I'm not saying OP should go through them all or that it is to be expected of him/her to learn someone how to finish your own song but if what you're talking about is of any relevance (it's a good point you're making I'm just saying) there are no point of tutorials for anything. They're for beginners, of course some of them will have problems afterwards even though he has learnt them the basics. I just mean that following a guide for beginners and actually focusing on finishing songs could be something that makes this tutorial stand out.

The first step towards finishing a song is to accept that there is no such thing as a finished song.
Not in the creator's eyes anyway.
You'll never feel that something is perfect or 'done'.

The trick is just knowing when to walk away and draw a line under it.
