Learn how to make cutting-edge House and Tech House with our 3 month online Production Certificate taught by Ben Remember.
The Toolroom sound always fascinated me. Mark Knight himself is a legend of house music. So when I saw the Academy advert for a new Masterclass programme, which trained people in how to make the Toolroom sound, I didn’t think long.
D.Ramirez is absolute giant in music production. Even observing his work in the studio is a great experience – that alone is inspiring enough to improve the music craft for a beginner like myself. The way he thinks, the way he works, and how organised he is, is an incredible example of how to attain improvement in production. He is a very honest man and shows all secrets he uses himself and for many other artists, he produces for, and very helpful about giving advice and mentorship about the industry generally.
Pete Griffiths feedback was very detailed about every element of the track. His feedback of what works, and whats doesn’t work, was very helpful getting the track to its finished state.
Business and marketing has always been something that I didn’t want to be involved in. However, the Toolroom team presented it in a very easy and understandable way, covering things like publishing rights, contracts, percentage of royalties, and how the money in music actually works. Meeting Stuart Knight was another great part of the masterclass – it was invaluable to hear his experience over the years in the industry, and a great connection to make.
I made one track over 4 sessions, which I called ‘Eliza’s Way’.
I couldn’t believe it when I got a BBC Radio 1 play from Pete Tong on my track. It was a privilege and an encouraging thing to happen. Being signed to Eton Messy with my first track was also an amazing achievement following the course.
Just to keep going! I am planning to produce more, learn more, and push my career forward.
Every music school has a different approach. Toolroom is one of the best for sure.
The Toolroom Academy is a great experience which I wish to everyone.
