For many of my students, electronic dance music production software has been a source of great pride. This is, of course, a huge mistake, and I’ll explain why. As a result, I want to talk about how electronic dance music production software can be a good thing, if used properly.
For me, it all started about ten years ago when I was taking a digital music production class at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I was working in the hip-hop/rap paradigm, with a jazz influenced rhythmic approach.
I was really excited about electronic dance music production, but the course curriculum didn’t seem to be all that conducive to my interests. The material was dry, and there were too few instructors who were actually dance educators. That was a big mistake. I have since come to realize that music courses need to offer a deeper perspective to how we perceive music and dance.
I also realized that there was a lot of value in having a dance instructor who had experience as a dancer, as well as being an educator. He could explain some of the ideas behind a certain rhythm or style, while explaining some of the subtleties of an electronic dance music composition.
What I soon learned, though, is that the new genre of music that emerged was one that was very different from anything I’d ever heard before. It was very modern and had a strong hip hop influence. Dance instructors needed to pay more attention to this new form of music, because it was going to be the basis of the new musical style that was taking America by storm.
There is one advantage to the advent of hip hop and jazz, though, which is a good quality dance instruction program. It makes a student feel more confident in his/her ability to learn and practice new styles and rhythms.
I’ve found that using some dance studio software, you can get some really great music. without spending too much money. If you know how to mix audio tracks, you can make your own beats and use the same techniques that professionals do for big hits. and radio hits.
In fact, some of the software offers a very high quality recording software, as well as editing and mixing software for making beats that can be duplicated for other people to use. That means a real “bespoke” version of that beat can be made. You can put together a hit song with little effort and sell it as a track. It doesn’t matter if you can dance, sing, or not.
This is exactly why I believe in music making. I think it can be fun, and I enjoy learning new things. I think it can teach me something about myself, too, because it’s such a unique thing to do, and the skills are so flexible.
Dance can be fun, too. You get a sense of fulfillment when you know you have a talent that others appreciate. And even if you don’t think you have the skills to make a hit song or dance a jig, you can make a lot of great music.
I know I’ve found some good electronic music production software that has been designed for beginners. like me, because it is really basic and easy to use, and because it offers an advanced level of recording and mixing.
And, at the very least, I know that I’m on my way to having a fun time learning something new. Whether or not that will be enough, I don’t know, but I like to look forward to learning.
So, if you’re interested in electronic music, and want to learn, start looking for a good program to teach you some basics, as well as the basics of electronic music production. I’ve found there are a lot of choices out there.
