“Dirk has a wealth of first hand experience as a career production musician, and he’s also a methodical and thorough instructor.  I’ve benefited immensely from the generous way he shares his knowledge, and my tracks have shown dramatic improvement as a direct result.  His Production Music Course distills a ton of knowledge in the form of talks and session walkthrough videos that are easy to follow and well structured.  For anyone interested in starting out in production music, this is a must have resource!
