Build Better Beats through drum programming patterns and style tips including hip hop drum programming and much more!
What You'll Learn
- At the completion of this class, students will understand and be able to use basic beat patterns, talk about beat rhythms, and build unique and progressive beats from their own sample libraries (which they will get from this course).
- The 6 keys to understanding meter and pulse
- The 3 most important elements of the drum pattern
- The 5 keys to a drum groove with "feel"
- Students should be comfortable with an audio sequencing application (Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Logic, FL Studio, Fruity Loops, etc.) Any audio sequencer will work.
- Students should be ready to make tracks using beats!

This is a class designed for music producers who are ready to get serious about drum programming. The art of programming drums on a MIDI grid, in drum machines, or with audio files can be tricky to master, but when you finish this class, your tracks will have the extra energy that comes from professional drum tracks.
Dr. Allen is a professional musician, top-rated Udemy instructor, and university professor. In 2017 the Star Tribune featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes.
I'll be using Ableton Live and some Logic in this course, but it will be easy to following along on whatever program you are most comfortable with. We will start the class off with basic rhythm theory, and learning where (typically) we put the kick, the snare, and the hi-hats. Then we will learn to adapt that pattern to work for a number of different styles.
DRUM PROGRAMMING MASTERCLASS, PART 1: RHYTHMS & PATTERNS is a comprehensive class - that means there are three (3!) different classes that together make the complete sequence. This is Part 1. (The best place to start!)
Also in the class we will be doing a number of analysis projects. That just means we will load up some tracks, and re-construct the beat in the track. Doing this will help us to see how those beats are built, and guide us in making our own beats.
Tools of the trade
Working on the Audio Grid and MIDI Grid
The 8th and the 16th
Reading Drum Patterns
Where to find good, free, samples (My favorite sites!)
Forming the Groove
The "Basic Pattern"
Off Beats and Down Beats
... And much more!!!
I will be making 3 (three!) complete classes in order to bring you the most comprehensive manual on beat programming techniques ever created. Each class has Sets, sessions, samples, and experiments for you to try on your own and follow along with.
And of course, once you sign up any part, you automatically get huge discounts to all the upcoming parts (the next 2!) of this class.
You will not have another opportunity to learn Beat Programming in a more comprehensive way that this. Start here.
The course is a roadmap to MAKING STUNNING TRACKS with better drums.
All the tools you need to produce great drum tracks are included in this course and the entire course is based on real-life experiences - not just academic theory.
