Visit the Visit programme website for more information


Explore the art of record production and how to make recordings that other people will love listening to. The emphasis is on mastering tangible artistic concepts; the gear you use is up to you. You will learn to develop the most important tool in the recording studio: your ears. You will learn to enhance every aspect of your own productions, both sonically and musically, by employing deeper listening skills. 

Assignments will include posting your own recordings for peer review, and reviewing your classmates’ work by employing specific tools and strategies. If you use a digital audio workstation to record and mix, that’s great, but as long as you can record into your computer and post an MP3, you can complete the assignments. 

As you learn about the art of record production in this 4-week The Art of Music Production course offered by Coursera in partnership with Berklee, you will also learn about yourself and who you are as an artist and producer. It is not necessary that you read music or play an instrument to take this course.
