Last minute Christmas gifts for music producers
Hey! Late again for Christmas shopping and no idea what to give to a music composer, producer or DJ?
Dont panic. Here are 5 different ideas and products that you can present even in the very last minute.
1. MASTERCLASS – learn from the best for just 75€
There are several really exciting classes from the absolute top teachers like Samuel L. Jackson, Gordon Ramsay or Herbie Hancock!
We can highly recommend the following classes that are focused on music, music production and composition.
Before he was deadmau5, all Joel wanted for Christmas was old toasters to take apart. Now, in his MasterClass, watch him take his music apart. Joel teaches you how he approaches melodies, mixing and mastering to make unique sounds you can’t find in a cookie cutter sample pack. You’ll get not only his lessons, you’ll learn how to create your own music without spending money on million dollar gear.

Armin van Buuren
Every week, Armin van Buuren puts 41 million listeners into A State of Trance on his radio show. In his first-ever online class, the platinum-selling DJ breaks down his hits—and builds a track from scratch—to show you how he produces, performs, and promotes dance music. You’ll learn his technical process for using samples and plug-ins, mixing, recording vocals, and building a DJ set. Your crowd is waiting.

Hans Zimmer didn’t see a film until he was 12 years old. Since then, he’s scored over 150 films, including Inception, The Lion King, and The Dark Knight. In his MasterClass, the self-taught Academy Award winner teaches how he creates sounds from nothing, composes compelling character themes, and scores a movie before ever seeing it. By the end, you’ll have everything you need to tell your story.
