Why should I get techno production coaching?

Get a personalized learning roadmap and strategy that fits your schedule with measurable goals and specific areas to work on. Spend less time struggling and more time producing killer music!

This is for you if

  • You don't have a lot of time to produce music because you work or study
  • You want to make professional-sounding tracks to submit to labels
  • You struggle to consistently finish tracks or don't know where to start
  • You're frustrated with slow progress and doubting your skills
  • You've done courses before that didn't help your music
  • You want to become the best techno producer you can be, faster

Why other teaching methods don't work

  • University is expensive and spends too much time on theory and doesn't adapt to the student's goals ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎‎ ‎
  • Online courses are hit-or-miss, often spending too much time on basic concepts you can google ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎
  • YouTube is great for learning how to make sounds or use plugins, but it's a one-way experience ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎ ‎‎ ‎

Where 1 on 1 coaching excels

Get better, stronger, faster

You're not like any other producer, so why get the same education? Spend time only on the concepts, techniques and tools you need to know to reach your goals.

Produce more, spend less

With courses you pay up front and follow along with no guarantee you'll produce better music. With a mentor, you'll work on tracks together to get you to the finish line.

Develop your unique talents

A professional mentor can help you find what makes you special as a producer and point out blind spots to work on to become the best producer you can be.

Make producing fun again

Making music should be fun. Struggling to make the music you feel in your soul isn't. A coach can help you through roadblocks, so you can get creative and have fun.

Hey, I'm Michal Basar

  • Releases on Mai Lei Bel (Michal Basar, Anacle), Stellar Black (Mike Preset), Seta (Mike Preset), self-releases (Michal Basar)
  • Mixing Engineer for Plugin Music

I know what it's like to learn techno production on your own. I wanted to make a career in music production and audio engineering, so I did what most people do, spent a TON of money and time at an audio engineering school. While I learned a lot, I felt something was missing:


1-on-1 mentorship centred on the student's needs.

 

That's when I realized I wanted to grow not just as a techno producer, but as a mentor, to help other artists, like you, on their musical journeys.

 

I spent a lot of time and money figuring out how to make techno music on my own, and wish I had someone to coach me 1 on 1, to help me make the music I wanted, the way I wanted, and when I wanted. 

 

After visiting countless workshops and music fairs all over Europe, I knew there was a better way to learn techno production.

 

That's why I started Plugin Music School. From a one-off music workshop in Slovakia, in 2013, today we're a full-fledged online music school in Rotterdam with multiple instructors, mixing, and mastering engineers dedicated to a personalized learning approach for students.

 

For 15 years I've honed my production and performance, and I want to help you become the producer you're meant to be. 

 

I know the relationship between student and mentor is just as important as the quality of the mentor. That's why I offer the first session for free, so if you're not confident I can help you get your techno tracks to the next level, you don't lose anything but a bit of time.

 

So, let's make better music together!

What our students are saying

"After a few hours with Michal Basar (mentor), my production improved a lot. They promised to move my production to another level, and they did. I recommend it to everyone. Thank you very much guys! It is good school with great teachers with a lot of experience!"

Peter DomanPeter DomanProducer

"Michal is my long term friend and he has been with me from the beginning of my career as a music producer. He has taught me a lot. He explained to me how to use Ableton, later how to implement my own sounds, how to do mixing and be confident to finish tracks. Today I release on a monthly basis at Sonaxx Records, Kube Records, Hardwork Records, Cannibal Society, Schubfaktor Records."

LuckesLuckesProducer

"Michal is an exceptional teacher who cares deeply about his students' success. He teaches you what you need to know to reach your goals as an artist. My roommate even said, "your tracks have gotten way better!" For producers struggling to finish tracks, I can't recommend booking a session enough."

FAQ

Who is 1 on 1 coaching for?If you're a passionate producer with a bit of experience making music on a DAW, 1 on 1 coaching is for you. Producers without much time to produce music due to their career or family can accelerate their learning to make and finish professional sounding tracks. 

We absolutely teach beginners, but you'll get the most bang for your buck if you come with some knowledge.

I'm already looking at online courses with big name producers. Why should I book with Plugin Music?While you can learn a lot from online courses, not every instructor is a good teacher. The saying, "those who can't do, teach" goes both ways. 

Online courses also aren't tailored for your needs as a producer, so it's hard to know how much you'll gain beforehand. Some courses might cover everything you already know, or cover what you don't care about.

1 on 1 mentoring is personalized to your specific needs. We'll get you to the next level the way you want.

Is there any obligation after the free intro session?There is absolutely no obligation! After your free session, you're welcome to book sessions with Michal or another instructor as you wish, or walk away with a few more tips and tricks to take to your next production sesh.

We live for feedback from students, so we appreciate if you leave us a review, even if you never book a lesson with us again!

Does it matter which DAW I use?Nope! Most of our instructors use Ableton Live, but we're familiar with most DAWs. The beauty of music production is that the concepts apply no matter what tools you use.

Can you mix and master my tracks?Yes! We've mixed and mastered tracks for many of our students. Learn more about mixing and mastering here. Though we'd love to get you to where you can mix and master on your own.
