Song Structure and Arrangement Music Course Riley Weller (GratuiTous)

  • Level Intermediate
  • 15 Lessons (2hr : 29min)
  • Audio: English

Can I tell you a secret about producing beats?

The difference between an amateur to a professional producer is the patience they put into their arrangement.

You see, when you rush your song’s song structure, you’re literally CHEATING YOUR SONG’s EMOTION!

It’s important you take the time to continually engage your listener into your song’s arrangement; otherwise, they’ll get bored of your music!

The key is all about communicating with our listener. And the way how we do this is with the various tools I share with you in this course.

In this course you will not only learn song structure and arrangement, but how to push your song’s emotion to that next level and compete with your favorite music.

Being a music producer is actually a really special skill; once your listener puts on their headphones, you’re literally in control of their emotions.

Now, you may be able to create a great beat. But, can you keep a song exciting, play with your listener’s emotions, and understand the tools we producers have to achieve this?

Let me introduce you to a term I’ve coined.

It’s called Audio Painting ©.

Over my 10 years of producing music, and working with a GRAMMY-Nominated artist (also releasing over 150+ music production tutorials on FL Studio), I’ve described this process of engaging with our listener and playing with their emotions as Audio Painting ©.

(I’ve also written a book on Audio Painting © which is on Amazon if you’d like more info – we cover audio painting in the course, too!)

Audio Painting © is what I use to describe communicating with our listener, and preparing them for what’s next in our song.

This course will teach you how to build a song’s:

- Intro
- Chorus
- Verse
- Bride
- Pre-Chorus
- Outro

After learning about basic song structure, we then learn how to communicate with our listener and prepare them for what’s next in our song.

Again, the key to an awesome arrangement is all about communicating with your listener.

Want to learn how to communicate with your listener through Audio Painting © ?

Enroll into the course and join me as I walk you through real-world examples of my own commercially released music that is on Spotify.

You will learn how to build an intro that gives your listener goosebumps, a chorus that your audience can’t wait for during your song’s build-up, and adding excitement in your song’s verse to keep your listener engaged.
