Who is Harderclass.com?
We are an online music education platform on a mission. We focus on harder styles of music and want to support great music as much as possible because music has a special place in our hearts.
Our mission is to help bring more heart touching music into this world. Music that makes us feel connected, gives us energy, great memories and helps us through hard times. We do this by hooking you up with the best dj/producers in their game who want to inspire you, motivate you and provide you with the information you need to make great music.
What can I expect from the classes?
We design the classes together with the instructors. The instructors share our mission and it is their goal therefore to think back when they were still starting out at making music and then make the lesson as if they were explaining and helping their past self. Of course every class is based on how the instructors make their music and as all instructors have their own ways of working is therefore a unique class.
The main structure all classes follow is that they explain how to create tracks, and sounds from scratch. They also show how one or more tracks from the past were created going though all the elements of the track which are usually sound design, mixing, mastering, all the plugins they use, arrangement, melodies, and often some music industry insights like how to create your own unique sound or how to get noticed by other DJ/Producers / record labels / booking agencies.
How long are the classes?
Each class is approximately 4 hours long. Some could be a little longer, some a little shorter. The classes are split up into individual parts to make it easier to navigate through different topics.
Do I have to complete the classes within a certain time?
No you don't, take your time and watch at your own pace. Don't be afraid to repeat watching classes as refreshing your knowledge is key to remembering what you've learned.
Am I able to interact with the instructors?
Most class instructors will ask you to send them demos on their social media so they can give you feedback during their class. We cannot guarantee interaction, but will inform you if and as these opportunities become available.
Which topics are covered in the class?
Although all classes are different the main structure all classes follow is that they explain how to create tracks, and sounds from scratch. They also show how one or more tracks from the past were created going though all the elements of the track which are usually sound design, mixing, mastering, all the plugins they use, arrangement, melodies, and often some music industry insights like how to create your own unique sound or how to get noticed by other DJ/Producers / record labels / booking agencies.
Is there homework with the class?
Yes, the homework is to start making music that will make lot's of people happy! This could be starting a new track, or maybe reproducing what the instructor was making in the lesson, or maybe finetuning a track you were busy with before you watched the class. In any case, it is important that taking action is the main part in growing as a music producer.
What happens after I finish the class?
Hopefully you start to make music right away :-) You can of course always review the class, we would recommend you do this from time to time to refresh your knowledge. When you recap on classes you will often pick out new things that didn't catch your attention the first time you watched them.
Can I download the videos?
No, we don't make downloads available as we want to protect the content for those who help us make these classes possible.
Can I give a Harderclass as a gift?
Yes you can, there is a gift option at the bottom of the main website. Maybe you know someone who can do with some help in making music? Or maybe you have spotted some hidden talent in someone who you think should be inspired to make music by watching one of his heroes make his music?
What is your refund policy?
We certain that you will love our classes that we guarantee you will learn, be motivated and inspired to get going and make music better. Therefore we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if you are not happy with our class.
What type of device / browser do I need?
As we too are music producers, we know that the best way to watch the classes is to have your DAW on one screen and the lesson on the other so you can play along with the class :-)
Therefore of course the classes can be viewed on all main-stream internet browsers.
