Because I'm sure you want your music to sound full, and have a powerful emotional impact among your listeners. That is why I have made this course with my top tips and guidelines of essential things you should focus on when creating your rhythmic sound kit, and balance the rhythmic sounds in your music.


My name is Mike, and I am a composer.

Just. Like. You. =)

I started making music back in 1998. And I love to educate, motivate, and inspire creative people, like yourself.
