Make better music

Before he was deadmau5, all Joel wanted for Christmas was old toasters to take apart. Now, in his MasterClass, watch him take his music apart. Joel teaches you how he approaches melodies, mixing and mastering to make unique sounds you can’t find in a cookie cutter sample pack. You’ll get not only his lessons, you’ll learn how to create your own music without spending money on million dollar gear.


Watch, listen, and learn as deadmau5 teaches you how to mix, master and market your music.


A downloadable workbook accompanies your class with lesson recaps and supplemental materials.


Upload videos to get feedback from your class. deadmau5 will also critique select student work.

Lesson Plan

deadmau5 taught me about finding unique sounds to make your own. Once you find your sound as an artist, you can run with it.

Anthony FernandezAnthony is a DJ, Music Producer, and Mechanical Engineer from Reno, Nevada.

I learned what a world-class producer looks for in rising talent. It was cool to see him in his element explaining how he creates tracks from the beginning.

Amanda Van WestAmanda is a music content specialist from San Francisco, CA, and artist manager to The City and Horses.

I liked hearing his excitement about creating something new and different. It got my head around how his tunes and melodies are created, which was very cool.

Lori CheekLori is a New York City based entrepreneur.

deadmau5 gave expert advice on technical details and performing live. I liked his insider insight into what being a musician is actually like.

Gray TolhurstGray is a musician and poet based in San Francisco, CA.

I think there is much to explore inside of all of us. Sounds are like words of a new language; a huge vocabulary of great treasures, of fine or common ideas.

Vittorio Volpiis a librarian in Italy. He is a student in Deadmau5's MasterClass.
