    Anonymous review on 5/27/2024
    I recently attended a class at NYC Beat Making, and it was a game-changer for my music production journey. From the start, the welcoming and energetic atmosphere set the perfect tone for creativity. My instructor was phenomanal, breaking down complex concepts into engaging lessons that were easy to grasp. I learned key beat making techniques in ableton and it flowed seamlessly, covering everything from basic music theory to advanced music layering. The 1:1 format was especially beneficial with instant feedback. already booked another class and can't wait for it! Highly recommended!

    I truly had an impactful experience learning how to make beats and navigating the platform that Yoav showed me to produce music. Yoav was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and beyond patient. I had SO much fun taking his class!

    Great class! covered a lot of my (many) questions in music theory and production. I'm a total beginner, but Yoav the instructor was super helpful and gave me personalized guidance, and made the class a lot of fun. Overall, I was surprised by how much I learned in just one session so I feel more confident now using Ableton and start a ‘beat’

    This class was great! In about 90 minutes I went from never having touched Ableton Live to learning how to load drums and virtual instruments, insert and manipulate a .wav sample, use an Akai MPD218 as a controller, and force a melody to play in a particular scale. I was very pleased with the results of my first beat. I would recommend this class to all. A+++

    A very informative and super helpful class. In the past year, I started to play around with music software and controllers, and in this class, I feel I learned a lot about mixing and music production in just one session, much more than any other course I've tried before. Also, it helped me set a more clear agenda about how to continue my music education, being mostly self-thought in music. Definitely coming back thank you!

    I’ve bought this class for my boyfriend’s birthday and he made a trance track in 1.5 hours with Yo’av. He is a great teacher and we had a lot of fun. If you are into music and creating your own track or just try the experience, I would totally recommend it. Even in one class he shows you so much and you can actually take the knowledge and continue to work on your track after the course if you have the softwer. Very cool class and very nice teacher!

Hi there! They currently teach music production using Ableton Live in the studio. However, in case you’d like to work on your existing projects from your laptop, yes, they can talk about music production and mixing techniques in general.

Hi there! Ableton Live is the main software used in this class. They will add FL Studio and Logic Pro very soon, but as for now, these are not the DAW we use.

Question from Anonymous
I'd like to set up weekly classes for two sixth grade students. They have been in a three-person band for the past three years - they are the drummer and bassist - in which they wrote their own music, but they had a falling out with the lead singer/guitarist who prefers hard rock and heavy metal. They like more modern music and want to learn how to produce it. Would it be possible to arrange something like this?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Weekly classes are definitely an option. The school recommends booking the first class for a team of two (under the title 'couples') (https://coursehorse.com/nyc/classes/performing-arts/music/music-production/beat-making---private-lesson-for-couples?schedule=2430225) and following that they can also set up the weekly schedule, with a day and time that'll fit both students. Hope this helps!

I want specific training on Melodyne, I'm sure the teacher is familiar with it or uses it, but I want to make sure he would be able to assist me with this, thank you Brenda
Answer from Yoav S. Verified Educator
Thanks for your question. I don’t teach Melodyne right now, I actually use Cubase’s ‘Vari Audio’ which I find more efficient to my workflow. We can talk on the essence of vocal correction and how to get an industry level vocal tuning using Vari Audio.
