masterclass is generally defined as “a class, especially in music, given by an expert to highly talented students.” Who better, then, to provide a detailed breakdown behind the intricacies of production than one of the most talented producers in the industry, deadmau5?

MasterClass, the education platform, today announced that iconic electronic music producer Joel Thomas Zimmerman, also known as deadmau5, joins its roster of instructors to teach his MasterClass on Electronic Music Production. The course will span 20+ classes and will teach students everything they need to know about making melodies, mixing and mastering and more.

“Kids, DJs…anyone can compose music with just a computer,” says Joel. “My MasterClass is a no bullshit look into what it takes to make great music, and it’s not just buying millions of dollars worth of gear. I’m going to show my students how to play with sounds and mix melodies they can share with the world. I’ve never done something at this depth before.”
