Do you want unique music made just for your podcast? Are you scrolling through libraries, but not finding what you want? It’s time to make your own music!
Join audio producer and digital music maker Katie Semro for Music-Making Magic and learn to create your own music to use for your podcast intro, outro, ad music, music bed, or anything you like. Not only will you come away with a complete piece of music you’ve created yourself, you will have learned the skills needed to use Ableton Live to make even more original music.
No experience with music making or Ableton Live is necessary. We will start from the beginning and go through all of the steps necessary to create a piece of music: from coming up with a sound mood board, to choosing the instrumentation, to creating loops, to arranging the piece, all the way through to mixing your piece. And, if you don’t have a copy of Live, you can download a 90-day free trial.


This course is designed for people who have no or little experience with making music or with Ableton Live (or who want a refresher). There is no musical experience required to get the most out of this class. 

Key Takeaways

  • Everyone will come away with a piece of music to use on their podcast/in their piece
  • You will learn how to make more of your own music
  • Learn to create music that you won’t hear anywhere else (no more marimba!)
