frequently asked questions

there are tons of other courses out there, why beat tweaks?

You're right there are tons of courses and videos out there about EDM production.  The problem with pretty much all of them is that they leave stuff out and don't answer all of your questions.  Every Beat Tweaks course is built from years of experience and constantly updated based on feedback from students and other producers.  

Also, you'll never be left to just learn on your own.  When you take a Beat Tweaks course, the support and answers to all your questions comes with it.  

Do I need special plugins or equipment?

Nope.  You can follow along and learn no matter what DAW, plugins or equipment you have.  It doesn't matter if you use Ableton Live, Logic Pro, FL Studio or Garageband, the concepts you learn can be applied anywhere.

You'll also learn how to use the plugins and equipment you already have to make amazing music.  So even if all you have is a laptop and cheap earbuds, you'll still be able to make professional EDM tracks.

Can you help me finish my tracks?

This course is meant to help you learn the skills you need to make amazing music at a fraction of the cost of hiring a coach.

If you do end of needing one-on-one help because you don't have the time or simply don't want to do it yourself, then you can I offer discounted coaching calls to my students.

You can also check out this awesome service (if you use Ableton or Logic Pro) where you send in your project and you get it back professionally produced, mixed and mastered.


what is the refund policy?
