With social media platforms and powerful recording technology at your fingertips, it’s easier now than ever before to create music and share it with your fans. But where do you begin and how do you get started?
The DIY Musician Specialization offered by Coursera in partnership with Berklee will take you through the process of writing, recording, and producing your own music in order to gain the practical skills you need to record music within ProTools, which is the industry standard Digital Audio Workstation.
You’ll also work to develop an artist identity, vision, and brand for your music and learn how to run a successful crowdfunding campaign to fund your music career.
Applied Learning Project
You will write, record, and produce an original song using real instruments, MIDI, and effects such as equalization, compression, and reverb. You will also create a short business plan that will outline your web presence, potential brand partnerships, and a crowdfunding campaign.
