- LEVEL 2 COURSE -
ABOUT THIS COURSE
This Course is designed for musicians in general, producers, DJs, students and people interested in learning more and acquiring a solid theoretical base in Music Composition and Songwriting.
This is a continuation of the Harmony - Level 1 Course. During Level 2 we will expand our knowledges to the different types of minor scales, studying in depth all of them, we will also include concepts of Modal Harmony, Non Functional Harmony and extend the range of available chords that we can use inside our songs. You don’t need to have any previous knowledges in Music Theory or reading Music Scores in order to take this Course, although I recommend you to start with the Level 1 Course if you are not very familiar with this concepts.
This Course will save you a lot of time as a Composer / Producer, I guarantee. In a single website you will get unlimited access to a great amount of material that would have taken you months to study or compile otherwise.

Unlimited access to a great amount and varitas of material material: each Course contains Videos, written material, pictures, exercises to practice, audios examples to listen and analyze, and more. One Universities call this “Interactive Learning".
My Courses are NOT pre-recorded lessons, neither 2 or 4 Zoom meetings. Each lesson was thought and designed topic by topic, following a program, combining different types of content in order to give you a learning experience that is clear and fun.
I am a Professional Music Producer and Composer, graduated at Berklee College of Music, and certified by Avid Technology as a Pro Tools Operator (Music Production). I currently work as a producer and engineer in River Flow Records where I have worked in dozens of records for local artists producing, recording, mixing and mastering.
As an artist / musician I have released several records with projects such as Flying Carpets, Once Guitars and Gonzalo Esteybar (my soloist musical project). In my work environment I am constantly helping other musicians / songwriters to achieve their goals and arranging & producing their songs so that they can convey as much as possible.
As an Instructor I have more than 7 years of experience teaching courses about Music Production, Songwriting, Recording and Microphone Techniques, Mixing and Pro Tools, in the City of Rosario (Argentina) as well as Online / At-A-Distance Courses and Seminars across the country. Nowadays hundreds of students from all around the world have attended to this activities and we have 100% of positive feedback in our social media, always.
