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.
I really liked the second to last lesson where Armin talked about how to get your career started as a DJ.
Despite having little to no prior knowledge of Armin and his music, I found him to be an inspiring instructor, with great advice on both technical and motivational fronts. I'll certainly apply this advice to my own work in the future.
Armin is an intelligent and eloquent, friendly and positive guy who isn't afraid to share everything he knows. He really lets you watch how he does things. This course was about a million times better than deadmou5, who only seemed to be superficially improvising.
Great instructor, learned writing, producing, mixing electronic music. And also a few quick performance tips
