"I knew that production was the next step in my music career if I eventually want to be travelling/touring the best way to get your name out there is to be producing your own sound. I had heard about Beat Drop and had been watching the website for over a year. Taking the plunge was the best thing I ever could have done. I feel competent and ready to take on more classes!"

Chelsea M

"This course, through Beat Drop, will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. You will leave this course having the confidence to create and express your art. Coming into this course with ZERO knowledge in Ableton, I've graduated with full assurance that I can complete a finished piece of art that is ready for commercial exposure."
