John Monkman

John Monkman and Beesemyer Institute have created an eight-and-a-half hour course on producing melodic house and techno music. Learn everything from programming drum grooves and creating melodic structures to achieving a pro-sounding mix.

The UK-based producer has an impressive portfolio, with his music being released on Kompakt, Anjunadeep, Crosstown Rebels, Drumcode and Ellum. He’s worked with Pete Tong, Bryan Ferry and Nile Rodgers, creating work in a wealth of genres.

John’s course will analyse complete tracks and break them down, showing you how some popular productions were made. He’ll also show you how to build up new ideas, ensuring that you walk away with a complete picture of his production workflow. John will offer sage advice on how to manoeuvre the music industry and how to collaborate with other producers.

The production course is based on Logic Pro and Ableton Live workflows, but the concepts can be transferred across all DAWs and instruments.

Beesemyer Institute, the platform the course is hosted on, is the educational wing of John Monkman’s Beesemyer Music label. The label has released music from artists that include Anaphase, Pete Tong, Martin Roth, Chaim and Theo Kottis.

The course is available now for €170, with a 15 per cent discount for the first 25 students. You can check out the full curriculum on the Beesemyer Music website.
