I learned so many things to overcome the problems of being a beginner, from focusing on what inspires me, the creative process, and just trying to have fun doing it and not being afraid to have speedbumps or mistakes. Armin is a world class producer and a class act all around. Cheers to him!
This class had taught me everything I need to know to make music. First rule - Have Fun! Thank you Masterclass and Armin! The perfect teacher for teaching dance music
Just an amazing Masterclass. Armin inspired and motivated me to get back into making dance music again after five years away and I'm already getting tracks done, sounding better than ever.
