Celine completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
I mistakenly came into this class thinking it would teach me about mixing and audio postproduction, but what I got was actually extremely valuable and interesting! The class starts with a huge timeline of how music technology has evolved from the very first recorded sounds to player pianos to the creation of synthesizers, all leading up to all of the amazing DAWs we have today. There are also segments about music revolutionaries and sound installations that are really interesting. The course also guides beginners on how to create their own sounds and tracks, with the final project of the course being a two-minute track created in Audacity. The information I learned in this course was extremely interesting and I suggest any musicians who work in the digital space to try out this course because I think you'll be able to get something out of it too :)
