Train Your Ears To Become Better At Music


Two Tips To Train Your Ears On Becoming A Better Producer __________________ 1. Listen And Break Down Mixed And Mastered Songs (Your Favorite Professionally Released Songs) We all listen to professional commercialized music that we love. We suggest picking one of your favorites your into right now and getting a sheet of paper and a pen to break down the song in it’s entirety. Start with the arrangement pausing the song as you go to take notes on the individual parts. Then move on to the elements you hear (guitar, chords, melodies, vocals, drums, adlibs, risers, down-shifters etc). Then where are the elements in relation to you hearing them. Are the drums and vocals in the center, are the guitars panned left and right and so on. Take your time when doing this and don’t rush it. Make sure you focus in on hearing all the parts of the song. __________________ 2. Identify Frequencies This is like learning to identify the sounds color. From a broad standpoint look at the song as a whole. From 20hz- 16khz. Where are the different elements located. What frequencies are in the lower end, mid range, and high end. Also consider how you can apply this in your productions and how you can do a better job separating your elements. __________________ Bonus: Critical Listening Vs. Analytical Listening Critical Listening relates to the physical details in a song. Having an understanding of dynamic range and how the instruments relate to one another as well as their spacial positioning in the song. Analytical Listening is about identifying the feeling and meaning of the song. A great way to increase your skill is to listen to great songs from all sorts of genres in different era’s!
