Piano Fundaments for Producers
Designed as an introductory music theory course, Piano Fundamentals for Producers focuses on the most important aspect of music theory for a record producer: understanding how notes and chords work together. Numerous successful, popular music producers do not read or transcribe music. The common thread between those producers is a deep understanding of music. In particular, successful producers understand major and minor chords, scales, intervals and how to achieve the melodic content that expresses their emotional intent. Reading and transcribing music is not a prerequisite to becoming a popular music producer, but an understanding of music theory must be accomplished. No prior music theory knowledge or experience is needed in order to succeed in this course.

Come here to learn how to make a song that people want to hear. Not to learn tips and tricks unfiltered from the internet, but to cultivate the mind of a record producer.
My music production is 10x better after attending Crē•8. I have a process now. I can develop my ideas clearly and get consistent, professional results.
“I still have the same tastes as when I started, but my approach to creating and mixing a song — I’ve definitely gone up a level.”
“The quantity and quality of what I learned is amazing…like getting a “scientific approach” to frequencies, timbres and rhythms that lets you bend, add or subtract them to your taste.”
“Activ•8 put all the pieces together into a systematic step-by-step approach that I could tailor to my specific goals. I only wish I had been able to take this course years ago.”
“Initi•8 shed light on things that were mental roadblocks in the past. Having the structure of hit songs laid out piece-by-piece is what I needed to understand other songs, as well as my own productions.”
“Within the first few classes, I realized I’d been making things monumentally harder on myself by not seeking the guidance of an experienced practitioner of this craft. Now I can do things with confidence, knowing I’m doing it right. I can’t put a price on that.”
“I can now immediately analyze and pinpoint musical arrangement, topline and why the song did or didn’t achieve the success the artist/producer wanted.”
“After the first course, it was just mind blowing. This is everything that you essentially need to know to be able to progress and make record breaking songs.”
