Create Exciting Music

Producing music is hard. Coming up with ideas is challenging and making those ideas interesting is even harder. I made the Creating Excitement video course to document some techniques I like to use to keep things engaging. It's a video representation of my mental filing cabinet that I turn to while writing and producing. 

While we may all produce different genres of music, often the techniques to make that music exciting are similar. The videos in this series are designed to work in a variety of genres, and can be use over and over again, in track after track.
