Learn How to Pre-Produce Your Songs
And Transform Them From Good to Great BEFORE You Even Start Recording!

Hi there, Björgvin and Lij here...

Are you a song writer or home studio producer wanting to make a great record?

Have you ever wondered what goes into a really effective recording session, and why well produced records can sound so good?

Well a big part of it is starting out on the right foot when you get ready for the studio.

This is called pre production.

Pre production is the process of getting it right at the source even before you put a microphone in front of a singer or an instrument.

Pre production is about getting it right at the source... before you get it right at the source! :)

You can feel like you have super powers at your next recording session. Seriously! Doing great pre production and being ready for your recording session will make you feel like a Rockstar in your studio.

For instance, if you want to produce an EP and already have a collection of songs to record, you might not be sure the songwriting is as good as it can be.

Before you get a band together and record your songs, you want to make sure everything is planned out.

  • The song structure
  • The lyrics
  • The melody

And last but not least, brainstorm the instrumentation and arrangement.

If you want to make a good record you have to start with a great song. No amount of expensive microphones, fancy mixing techniques or dynamic mastering will make a boring song sound better.

That's why we're partnering up to give you the Pre-Production Workshop:

  1. In your 1 hour and 40-minute video workshop, we’ll show you how to make songs as good as possible before you even start the recording process. We'll discuss the importance of the song structure and arrangement, we'll strengthen the lyrics and melody, and we'll find the right tempo and key.

Here's What You'll Learn:

  • How to make songs the best they can be before you start recording.
  • The importance of songs structure, arrangement, and feel.
  • How to strengthen your lyrics and melody for songs your listeners will love.
  • Techniques for finding the ideal tempo and keys for the singer.
  • How to write song charts to give you the perfect road map for your productions.
  • BONUS - Example song charts & guide for writing chart chords.

You'll be able to use the techniques to strengthen your own songs or help other musicians make their productions even better.
