After successfully completing the three prior courses of the Music Production Specialization, this capstone experience is your chance to use your talent and accumulated knowledge to create and submit a finished, fully produced song. As you go through milestones, you will work on your own or with other musicians to develop a song and vision for the finished product. You will then plan and execute its production, including recording, editing, mixing, and posting the finished product. All along the way, you will receive feedback from the peer review process, allowing you to tweak and refine your finished song.

Syllabus

Welcome to the Music Production Capstone
Welcome to the Music Production Capstone! Before you begin the course, we will cover all the details about the course and what you'll need to know to get the most out of your experience.

Pre-Production
This week, we will focus on everything that needs to be done before you head into a recording session. We'll cover how to use reference tracks and analysis to develop an emotional timeline for your song, as well as how to schedule and work with other musicians.

Production
This week, we will dive into the recording session. We will discuss what your role is as a producer and what you need to focus on throughout the session. We'll also share some ideas on how to create a comfortable environment and how to make sure your session is successful.

Editing
This week, we'll focus on editing the tracks from your session last week. Chrissy, Loudon, and Stephen will share how they approach the editing process and offer a few tips and tricks to keep in mind while you edit your project.

Mixing & Mastering
In this final week, we will dive into mixing and mastering your projects. Depending on the genre of your song, the way you approach the mixing and mastering stage may be very different. We will discuss various ways to approach the mixing stage, how to tell when your mix is complete, and finally, strategies to mastering your project.
