I really think Will is an undiscovered genius - the way he breaks down music making. He makes it so simple, and then - BAM! - you can just get your ideas out and get past that creative block! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Does this sound like you?

“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 or 8-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?”

Well, you're not alone...

These are ACTUAL questions I've received from our 250,000+ subscribers and readers...

In fact – I get more questions about coming up with chords, melodies and arrangement 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 again?
  • What if you could sit down in front of an empty Ableton, FL or Logic project - and know EXACTLY what steps to take - and in what order?
  • What if you didn't have to rely on the same sample loops and MIDI packs as everyone else - and could easily create something unique and original?
  • 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?

All without having to waste hours on Youtube, in an endless rabbit-hole where you feel productive - but realistically not much gets done.

That would make writing your own tracks a whole lot easier right?

Well - after personally struggling to produce anything good for over 10 years - when I finally figured it out I started...

  • Finishing at least 1 track per week
  • Got my first label release
  • Got my first manager 
  • Got my first paid remix work
  • Won thousands of pounds worth of equipment
  • Got paid to speak at music production conferences

...and have since topped the Beatport charts, worked on Grammy shortlisted music and DJed in some of the world's best clubs.

In other words...the answer is YES - Knowing that stuff IS useful!

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

Over 8000+ students have now been through the original version of this course - many of whom are now releasing their music on some of the world's biggest record labels - and it's just been completely updated and improved so it's now even MORE effective.

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!


We walk through the 6 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!


And don't worry - these techniques are easy to understand and quick to implement - so you can get started putting them into action almost immediately.

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

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

Well explained with practical examples, so that the lessons can be put into practice quickly. I like your courses very much! Everything is explained calmly and factually, I can understand your English well, and it even has a pinch of humour in it ;-) Thanks Will!

Marc Rauber

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.

Meet some of our students...

What software do you need?

Music Theory for EDM Producers is designed primarily in Ableton Live – but the techniques work in ANY Digital Audio Workstation. We have successful students who use Ableton, Logic Pro, FL Studio, Studio One, Reason, and more…

In terms of 3rd party plugins, you don’t need any - your stock plugins are absolutely fine!

Who is this for?

If you are a bedroom producer making: Techno, House, Trance, Drum 'n' Bass, Future Bass, Trap, Pop – or indeed ANY genre of electronic dance music (underground OR mainstream) – and you can relate to ANY of these points – Music Theory for EDM Producers is for you…

  • You're just starting out with music production - and have realised it's harder that it looks!

  • You’ve been producing for a few months – maybe even years – but still struggle with composing and arranging music that sounds as good as your favourite producers.

  • You get stuck in a 4 or 8 bar loop - and don't know how to take a track into a full 4 or 5 minute arrangement. You have loads of ideas on your hard-drive that end up going no-where!

  • You used to produce music or DJ, but then….life happened: Maybe you got a job, or had a family, but music has always been a passion simmering in the back of your mind. You want to fulfil that passion and create professional-sounding music – either for release or just for your own pleasure.

  • You want to be able to consistently and regularly produce music that you LOVE and that you’re proud of.

  • You are sick of slow progress with your music production. You want to stop wasting your time and get results fast.

Here's what the curriculum looks like....

There are 6 modules in this new version of Music Theory for EDM Producers – each of which covers an essential area of professional music They flow perfectly from one module to the next - with intuitive exercises - making sure you end up with at least one fully arranged track!

Module 3:
