Music Theory For EDM Producers - Will Darling (


Learn how to build killer chords, progressions, melodies, rhythms, bass lines & arrangements in ANY genre of electronic dance music, and stand out from the rest!

Actionable techniques


This course provided me invaluable lessons on the key aspects of putting together a song. It gave me actionable techniques to improve my drum programming, melody / harmony writing, and chord progression construction - and most importantly, it taught me how to put them all together to make an interesting idea and turn it into a full song!

Sam Erickson - Music Producer, St. Louis, US

“How do you actually come up with your own original ideas? Do you have to have some god-given talent?”

“How do chords work? What sounds good with what?”

“The biggest struggle for me is taking a 4-Bar loop and making it into a full arrangement before I get sick of it.”

“I am getting increasingly frustrated by the fact that i can’t seem to come up with any nice, original chord progressions. How can i overcome this?”

These are actual questions I've received from EDMtips subscribers and readers...

In fact, I get more questions about coming up with melodies and chords than anything else.

Now let me ask you a question (or two…

  • What if you never had to play hit & miss in your piano roll editor… ever?

  • What if you could listen to the tracks of all your favourite producers, and quickly and easily have a solid understanding of HOW they composed them, and WHY they made the choices they did?

  • What if you knew how to "spy" on your production heroes to figure out exactly how they wrote their all-time classic anthems?

That would make writing your own tracks a whole lot easier right? (trust me, the answer is YES…)

That's EXACTLY Why I Created
"Music Theory for EDM Producers"

Believe it or not, the knowledge in this course is the same that pretty much every world-class producer has used to write the greatest dance tracks ever written…some of them wouldn’t even be aware of that fact that they were doing it!

Once you understand these fundamentals, this knowledge can be used quickly and easily, without having any previous experience of music theory or playing a musical instrument!

I walk you through the 4 key areas of EDM music theory (tailored specifically for dance music production of all genres), and break down the exact process in step-by-step guides, giving you the ultimate track-writing “masterplan.”

But this isn’t just watching videos; the course guides you through REAL EXERCISES so you can truly internalise and understand the material, enabling you to get the most of it time and time again in every track you make!

(Don't worry, these techniques are easy to understand and quick to implement, so you can get started putting them into action almost immediately.)

And you don't have to worry about breaking the bank, either.

I know it's a leap of faith to invest in an online course. That's why this course doesn't cost $500, $400 or even $200.

And it's ALSO why I offer a full, 30 day money-back guarantee – just in case you decide it's not for you.

So how much does this training cost?

Lifetime instant access to ALL of this training and resources can be yours, today, for $147.

Yep, Just $147.

That’s literally the price of a couple of 1-hour lessons with a decently proficient music teacher.

I spent YEARS learning classical piano and music theory, and I’ve spent the last 20 producing dance music. I’ve DJed in clubs around the world, and have had tracks supported by some of the biggest producers on the planet.

The foundations for these achievements is what I will teach you in this course.

...And the benefit is, I’VE CUT OUT ALL THE BORING THEORY THAT DOESN’T MATTER, by only laser-focusing on the core techniques that matter for writing and producing electronic dance music…the ones that get results! You don’t need to waste months or years (and thousands of dollars) taking music theory lessons, learning a bunch of stuff you’ll never use.

Yes, of course there is MUCH more to dance music production than music theory, but these are the fundamentals that the rest is built on – even mixing and mastering. Why waste any more time and energy with guesswork when it comes to writing your own original tracks, when you can know EXACTLY how to do it, with a step-by-step road map?

The choice is yours.

I made my first track and it's all thanks to you!


I tried to produce for at least a year without success, but your course has helped me very much! I just wanted to say thank you...I made my first track and it's all thanks to you!

Danny Zarfati - Jerusalem, Israel

Just what I needed!


Just what I needed! The combination of graded topics from complete beginner to arranging complete songs using step-by step guides and video has inspired me to complete a number of 'stuck' projects and start work on new stuff with renewed confidence. Your enthusiasm and willingness to respond personally to student queries was especially appreciated. Thanks again and looking forward to your mixing course!

My passion is re-ignited


Just wanted to say AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! I've been producing on and off for years, and the thought of learning music theory bored me to death. This course quickly taught me some bang-on fundamentals, and my productions make so much more sense now. My passion is re-ignited. Thanks, man!

Tom Williams - Southampton, UK

Well worth the money!


Well worth the money! Having joined a number of courses already, it looks like this is the one getting me started for real. If you’re looking for an EDM course (that ISN’T just a guy showing what he can do himself), look no further. Will takes you through in a great and intuitive way, and the short videos (but plenty of them) got me started right away. I also enjoy the fact that Will adds more content all the time, and actually answers your questions!

Bjarne Maschoreck - Denmark

This course definitely has been a big help


Will is a fantastic teacher and really goes into detail where it's needed but doesn't spend so long in the weeds that it drags on. This course definitely has been a big help to my knowledge of production and how to be a better producer overall.
