How You can Become a TOP Dance Music Producer

So now let’s say that you’ve got your dance music production software setup and you’ve been creating your own tracks for the last few days or weeks and you’re really starting to get the hang of this music making thing.

But where do you go from here?

Some ideas would be to start learning as much as you can about audio production, audio engineering, sound design, and obviously music. Ideally you should start to seriously study music such as music theory, how to play an instrument like the piano or keyboard, etc.

Then you might want to think about expanding your studio setup to include more hardware and software tools that can greatly enhance your ability to create top of the line dance music sounds.

Getting a new synthesizer would be a great idea. There are a ton of keyboard/synth combinations out there, everything from classic moog synthesizers to more modern solutions. Whatever you choose make sure you learn it inside and out and try to get the best possible sound out of it and you can really add some meat to your dance tracks.

So expanding your musical knowledge and your available music making and sound production tools should be the first avenues you start to explore to improve the quality of your electronic dance songs.

And if you haven’t seen it already then make sure you check out one of our most popular and read articles here on beatmakershq: How To Make Dance Music – you’ll learn a ton about this style and how to go about creating it to the best of your ability.

After that you could even start to think about hiring session instrumentalists and paying them to record sounds, this will allow you to build your very own personal and private sound sample library that you can draw from at any time you choose. This will give you a huge leg up on the competition and really allow you hit that professional sound that many other people miss out on because they only use widely used sample packs and kits.

This post has shown you how to get started with dance music production and then how to take your tracks and songs to the next level. I hope it has inspired you to just get out there and start creating. Never stop and keep the burning passion and desire alive within you, it will express itself through your sounds and will never let you down!
