You can get started by reading this short guide about the 7 Habits That Makes You A Better Music Producer.
Now, why should you read THIS BLOG and trust anything that we say?
Lucky for you, it’s totally up to you. We don’t claim to be experts. But we are PASSIONATE. With over a decade of experience in the music production world we feel we may have at least a few nuggets of wisdom to share. Even that one nugget may be enough to change someones life.
That’s all we need.
Hi, I’m Tim.
I produce music for a living and I do it 100% via the Internet.
Being the shy and unpopular kid with acne in my teenage years wasn’t the happiest time of my life. Starting to pursue music didn’t make it any easier. You know how it is. Just another reason to bully you!
I hated performing, like REALLY hated it, but creating music (alone) on a computer was amazing. You could do so much with so little. You didn’t even have to know how to play an instrument. Like what?!
That was the starting point for my career.
I started being active on the Internet by sharing my music and chatting (remember MSN?) with fellow music producers trying to learn everything I could about music production. For a shy teenage kid the Internet was a blessing. No real-life interaction, awesome!
Pretty soon people started noticing my skills. Every day I would receive emails from random people all around the world who wanted to work with me. That was strange because I had no idea if I would be any good! Creating music was just something I enjoyed doing when I wasn’t playing soccer or video-games, or studying.
Okay, now let’s fast-forward almost 10 years.
Today, I run my own business and music production has become my full-time job (I’ve never had a “real job”). I have collaborated with more people I can remember and produced more tracks I can count. I’ve sold my work for Google, Universal Music, Sony, HBO and ESPN. Just to name a few. Not too shabby?
Is producing music my life purpose?
You know what? I don’t know.
I’m good at it and I enjoy doing it (not always) but something is missing. I’m looking for a change and that’s one of the reasons I started this blog.
In the past 1-2 years I’ve spent more time than I remember answering questions about music production. Things that seems so obvious to me can be totally new to others. Someone may research a topic online for hours that I can explain in a minute.
…And I realized I love helping fellow music producers!
It gives me joy and sense of purpose to be able to help out and inspire. So, here we are!
With this blog I hope to inspire and help as many music producers and beat makers I possibly can by simply writing about the things I know about.
