Every week, Armin van Buuren puts 41 million listeners into A State of Trance on his radio show. In his first-ever online class, the platinum-selling DJ breaks down his hits and builds a track from scratch to show you how he produces, performs, and promotes dance music. You’ll learn his technical process for using samples and plug-ins, mixing, recording vocals, and how to DJ a set. Your crowd is waiting.
Seeing how he worked in the studio was extremely helpful. It reminded me to do some things I stopped doing years ago. Seeing how he works in a state of flow without over analyzing things and just trying ideas until they bear fruit helped remove some walls I hadn’t noticed I’d built around my musical self.
I did not expect to learn as much as i did from Armin class , in particular the advice in a practical sense to enjoy the music first and not to put pressure on the learning. I have a Masters degree and i never enjoyed learning. This take away has resonated with me and is my key take away. Adrian Maraspin
Armin is an amazing teacher and it was great to get some inside views into his creative process. Very inspiring and informative.
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!
