What is included in the 3 Pack?
The 3 Pack will include 3 Pro Tutorials. Each tutorial will be detailed study of a different track that will be featured on my 'Future Fantasy' Trailer Album.

These track are "On Conjuring" (posted above), "Get Up" & "Genetic Complexity".
I haven't finished the last 2 tracks since I am been busy getting the first Tutorial finished up for the enrolled students.

The 2nd tutorial will cover the details of the track "Get Up". "Get Up" is a Hybrid Mash-Up Trailer Track. This tutorial has come to be because many trailer houses are looking for re-envisioning of songs transforming them into a trailer music. Sometimes it requested as "trailer-izing" a pop/rock track.

For "Get Up", I have an original song I have produced which I will be showcasing how I go about all the details of trailer-izing it. Students will receive the stems from the original track and will be encouraged to have a go at trailer-izing the track, utilizing the tutorial as a guide.
Open enrollment is planned for end of July /early August 2018.
"Genetic Complexity" is Sci-Fi Rhythmic Trailer Track. Trailer houses often are looking for percussion-centric tracks with cutting rhythmic hooks and 'fresh' hybrid sounds. This tutorial will showcase the details of the music, again sharing a blueprint for students to utilize the concepts and structure to create a hybrid track of their own.
Open enrollment is planned for end of August/early September 2018.

All of the music in the summer Pro Tutorials are part of the same trailer album project, 'Future Fantasy," that I am working on so will they have some homogenous sounds and timbres that tie them all together.

Students signing up for the 3 Pack will receive a special savings rate just over the cost over purchasing 2 of the tutorials seperatly.
