Music Production can be an elusive art form for many, and the challenges that face someone who is new to this can easily create overwhelm and lead to complete paralysis. The goal of this book, is to cover music production from many different angles in a way that will change your thinking on the subject and build your confidence. Music making is a very mental and psycholog Music Production can be an elusive art form for many, and the challenges that face someone who is new to this can easily create overwhelm and lead to complete paralysis. The goal of this book, is to cover music production from many different angles in a way that will change your thinking on the subject and build your confidence. Music making is a very mental and psychological game, and more often than not, all the technical stuff can hold you back from achieving your goals if you don't have the right creative habits in place first. With all the information available with a simple Google search, I wanted to really get to the heart of things that aren't being discussed nearly enough. I want to clear out all the garbage you may have been told and replace it with the essentials you can put to immediate use. Many people new to music may dive into forums and mindlessly watch video tutorials attempting to gather more and more information until they think they have enough to get going (hint: you never feel like you know enough). That would be like reading a whole encyclopedia and then being asked to recall only the important things that will get you from point A to point B. Even worse, much of the information you get will contradict the last thing you read. It's like finding a needle in a haystack only to be told it's the wrong needle. There is a much better approach. It's an approach that doesn't require you to know a lot to get started. You only need to know enough to get to the next step in your process. There is truly nothing stopping you from becoming a music producer. The ones who are successful now are the ones who started from nothing and chipped away at it until they found a way to express their unique voice. There are no gatekeepers making decisions on who is worthy and who isn't. The determining factor is you, your habits and your confidence in yourself. This book can be read from start to finish, or as a “choose your own adventure”, going directly to what you think can help you most right now. Don't get caught up thinking you have to devour everything before getting started. That isn't necessary, and isn't the point of the book. The core concepts in the book will come up time & time again which should help you retain them & be able to recall them when the need arrives. By exploring these concepts from several angles you should gain a broad view of their many uses. My hope is that this book is used as a toolbox. You simply find the right tool that moves you forward and get back to work. So few people, who have more than enough information in their heads, ever start. Of those who do start, even fewer finish what they started and are satisfied with the results. I want you to be in that small group of finishers. Let's get started.

    It's a half electronic music production and half coaching book. I decided to give 4 star because so much repetition in it. But in the other hand it's a very good guide to how to finish something and how to work well. I'll be joining 30 day challenge soon.

    Half of this book is a pure self-improvement manual - about building habits, fighting procrastination and achieving goals. I wholeheartedly loathe such books, but this particular one I enjoyed. I think there are 2 reasons to this: 1) Author knows the stuff he writes about, and names the problems very effectively (no. 1 is finishing tracks) 2) I'm coming from a software development mindset, where overthinking and constant learning is sometimes the only way forward.

For music production it isn't - and may even hurt. Minor complaints: 1st author writes that you don't need any background to start but then actually gives detailed tips that you need to have some knowledge to understand. 2nd the tips are pretty chaotic and hard to implement immediately (which is against the message of the book).

    Certainly did the job for me! Before I read this book, I was stuck in half-finished limbo musically speaking and hadn't finished a single track. While reading it, I completed five. Definitely recommended for anyone who feels stuck in their music production!

    Insightful, motivational, inspiring. Most of the advice was useful and concise. I found it a bit repetitive, but the repetition was just enough to keep those ideas lingering in my head for longer than a few days. I did lower the rating because I found a couple pointers that I and my audio engineer mentors would agree would not be wise choices for mixing or production. Art is subjective and it boils down to personal preference of course, so to each their own. I also found a typo on nearly every p Insightful, motivational, inspiring.

I also found a typo on nearly every page especially towards the end, making it difficult to take the book more seriously.

    There was a good amount of tips and guidance that I can see myself referring back to in future. However, there was quite a bit of repetition, and probably at least a couple of dozen typographical errors. Overall, I think I preferred DeSantis' "Making Music" for being more direct and practical; comparatively, this title often felt more informal, like a diary or journal. Still, it contains a lot of useful stuff and is worth a read.

    Applicable To Winning This book delves into the mindset and tools necessary in becoming a great musician. But, when reading you find that the strategies are useful for succeeding in any field. A person must create massive amounts of art or projects to become exceptional. You're growth is from struggle and the ability to overcome it which there Author mentions.

    It was a good book, because music production can be replaced with any creative hobby/activity/work you struggle or want to progress, general idea was action before knowledge. Just start and the skills come while doing it, you do not have to have the skills beforehand. Some parts of it were music specific and pretty detailed.

    Inspirational but very repetitive, and sometimes very sloppy writing. But in all it has valuable advice - albeit often obvious, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Great book to help you dive into a good mental state for producing music. The first half was more oriented on the mind set and then the author starts going into actual production techniques, which while was still useful kind of deviated away from the main subject of the book. I found the 101 tips at the end of the book to actually be all good and useful tips. Would have given the book a 4.5/5 but half stars are not permitted.

    Got this for free but would definitely pay the 9.99 the author is now asking. A great book with lots of good ideas to get you off your ass and start producing music.
