Meet Producer Jef Stott

Blog post by Jef Stott.

Hello everyone!

Jef Stott here and I’m a music producer and educator here in the Bay Area and I’m really excited to present my class on music production in Logic Pro for Amateur Music Network. Producing music has been the focus and passion for most of my life and I can’t wait to share my knowledge and insights with you.

This is going to be a great series of classes for composers/ producers and musicians interested in digital music production. All students are welcome, these classes are definitely geared towards the entry level.

You’re going to learn how to mix your tracks, produce your own songs, and write your own beats and bass lines. We will also learn to edit vocal and instrumental tracks. We’re going to cover a wide range of genres, from electronic and urban to traditional recordings of live instruments.

It’s not going to be purely technical! We’re going to talk about the aesthetic choices that people are making as they are producing music. We will definitely go under the hood into the mechanics of music production.

We’ll discuss recordings we’ve listened to and learn about the role of the producer:

  • How did they do that?
  • How do they make that drum sound so big?
  • How do they make those vocals sound so powerful?

We’re going to answer a lot of those questions in this class.

We’ll focus on Logic Pro, the music software, but the concepts I’m going to be teaching in the class are going to be universal, and you can apply them to Pro Tools, Ableton or any other music software. We’ll review important basic concepts such as audio editing, MIDI production, microphones, mixing, and more.

It is going to be a fantastic series of workshops and a true intensive with three sessions in one week. I really hope that you can join me.  It is my honor to teach all that I have learned and I can’t wait to share everything with you.

Jef breaks down the power of Logic Pro software for you.
