The Dance Music Academy

February 04 2018
Written by: Rick Snoman


As the longest running online resource for electronic musicians, over the last 15 years we have delivered some of the highest quality material to both new and experienced electronic dance music producers. Starting with the best selling Dance Music Manual (published via Focal Press/Taylor & Francis) in 2003, we expanded to create some of the most in depth and complete video tutorials, earning us a place as one of the most highly recommend sites for electronic music production. Now we are taking those tutorials, along with further, new tutorial titles to the next level.

Through our new Dance Music Academy you will be able to receive a much more personalised experience. For this, we are introducing 2 platforms, DIDO and IPPTC.


The first are our DIDO (Dip In, Dip Out) courses. All future (and some current) tutorials will be available as the standard video tutorial as always, but they will also be available as a DIDO course.

If you choose to join the DIDO course we will be take you through the tutorial slowly, reviewing and cementing each key learning skill and technique discussed in the tutorial. Its one step at a time. One sound bite at a time. A DIDO course will include:

  • The pre-recorded video tutorial.
  • Additional Video
  • Pre-recorded webinars.
  • Question and answer webinars.
  • Assignments and/or workbooks.
  • Certificate of Completion
  • First refusal for limited place in our upcoming seminars 


By completing the coursework set throughout the DIDO, you can also work with your peers and access a private section in the forum so that you guys can post and learn from each other in a more intimate zone. As this zone is not public it enables you to post even those little questions that everyone is dying to ask but doesn’t want to on a large public platform. Rick and the team will be dedicating specific time to your individual questions to ensure that you get a personal service. 


The second platform course that we'll be launching later in the year is the main DMA IPPTC (Independent Professional Producer Training Course). This in depth, monthly subscription course will take you from Foundation level, to Intermediate level and then finally to Independent Professional level.

We will use a variety of methods to accomplish this including:

  • Pre recorded tutorials.
  • Tutorials Specifically for the DMA
  • Pre recorded Webinars.
  • Live webinars.
  • Question and answer sessions.
  • Workbooks and assignments.
  • Certificate of completion
  • Specialist seminars for DMA IPPTC students only
  • First refusal for limited place in our upcoming seminars


As you are aware the DMA IPPTC course has been in development for a long time. We had to be able to deliver the content you've come to expect from us at DMP. We wanted to cover every topic to ensure you have the necessary skills to create a great work space, understand all the relevant technology and techniques, and most importantly be able to implement these to produce release quality material. As soon as we've finished assigning the module list we will send it out to those that are on the waiting list.

Join us on this incredible journey.

Places for the IPPTC will be limited and on a first come, first serve basis. Please fill in the form below to indicate your interest in the IPPTC.
