It was a well rounded lesson. The arrangement and content was just the right amount for someone who is interested in learning how to make electronic music

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and even more your positive energy!

Very inspirational and the level of detail was excellent. The DJ specific classes were like a bonus for me and I learned a lot. I think its obvious that Armin put a lot of effort into this masterclass and I really appreciate that.

Great instructor, learned writing, producing, mixing electronic music. And also a few quick performance tips

Hello again ladies and gentlemen, I am making a short trip to London this March and I got on my agenda to visit the most and best clubs in London. Can you please make a good recommendation winch one are the best clubs for EDM in London. Please, only clubs that you personally have visited.

Hi all, I am a singer/producer/DJ in NYC looking for global collaborators on EDM tracks. I would love to sing and write a topline (lyrics) for your beat. I'm also open to co-writing beats, or writing beats for other singers. I have a home studio setup. I am having trouble adding a track as an attachment here to demonstrate my voice so please search "Anna Awe" or "Anna Awe Purple Fever" if you want to hear some examples of my work.

Well, this whole thing definetely has an impact on some things I´m trying to accomplish! Thank you very much! Your class was a random find because I was really into writing lessons here and I never listened to that kind of music before and after taking ALL your lessons now I´m inspired to do a lot of new things. That shows the impact, doesn´t it?

Thank you Armin! Signed up for this class wanting to learn more about recording, editing and mixing techniques in Logic Pro and it taught me that. Plus I ended up a huge fan of yours and your music. What a great class! It had everything. Thank you!

I think 'dreaming big' is definitely a part of it. Don't give up, always work toward improving, giving it your all.

Like the previous review, this has put me on the right path, and saved me so many valuable hours. Thanks for your concise lessons and candour. Here's the result of my learnings so far. Take a listen if you get a chance.

Thank you very much for the master class. I probably saved years of my life. Armin told a lot of new chips, but it is not important. The main thing that I saw that it's pretty simple, really. Armin said things I thought I already knew. It's like he just reminded me why I'm here. Showed me my way. He's tough. I will definitely release the track on Armada Music. And thanks to everyone who prepared this site, the master class and gave such a wonderful opportunity to learn from the best. Love from Russia!
