Lesson 7 – Producer Considerations & Arranging

Today’s hip hop producer is often much more than the person in charge of guiding a project. In the context of popular music, the producer can even be the person responsible for the entire arrangement, including the lyrics. As the professional responsible for the construction of the instrumental, you must keep certain musical considerations in mind when aimed at creating an interesting piece of music. We’ll also uncover certain key aspects such as the difference between the role the producer plays from the role of the songwriter(s). We’ll also get into things to consider when making a song, producing in a rhythmically minded manner, creating the instrumental, and more!
