Hey Arn and fellow composers! Just wanted to start by saying a HUGE thank you to you Arn for putting this course together and really putting yourself out there. It takes a lot of guts to do this course in the way you have (I certainly know I wouldn’t want people to see all my mistakes and failures with the fly-on-the-wall approach you decided to take) and you kept true to your intention. I studied music at university and, although I learnt a huge amount there, I came out feeling totally ill-equipped for the real world of composing with no real idea of where to go.
But, having taken this course, I feel like I’ve learnt more skills that are actually applicable to the real world and what I want to do than from my entire degree! So hugely grateful for what you have put together here on this course and with Evenant in general. This is my first production in a DAW (have been brought up on Sibelius) and it has taken me an absolute AGE to finish (due to a full time job, doubts about my ability and an extremely steep learning curve) but am thrilled with the final result and feel like a career in composing is no longer some far away dream but an entirely possible and realistic avenue to pursue. And that’s down to this course, so THANK YOU!!
I would recommend this course to anyone who feels like they have the talent and desire to write and produce high quality music but just doesn’t know which path to take or which tools to use. Because that was me, and now, since finishing the course, I finally feel like I have the direction and confidence to take this composing lark seriously, commit to it, continue to learn & grow and ultimately carve out a career doing something I love.
