Just wanted to let everyone know that I just produced an educational music video on Trevor Horn's production of Seal's hit song Love's Divine.  This is a must-see video if you're interested in learning how to improve your production and arrangement of songs.  I cover many essential topics in song production, such as:

  • why great producers pay close attention to the song title and lyrics
  • which vocal techniques and special fx to use to enhance ​meaning
  •  a list of some of the best music producers that you should add to your playlists (in different genres)
  •  how to listen responsibly so as not to damage your ears
  • a personal list of FREE and great orchestration and arrangement web sites that are a must for producers and arrangers
  • two highly recommended books on the subject
  • the Top 9 factors you must consider when producing and arranging a song (what to pay close attention to)
  • how to create a template for your own productions (FREE Excel spreadsheet included)
  • Case study: scene-by-scene analysis of Seal's hit song Love's Divine - there's alot going on here!
