Dear Nikhil, from a newbie to Ableton to learning so many techniques with the application of them in your assignments, I guess it's more or less a complete package! Thank You for the wonderful 8 sessions and the test is me putting it to work to make what I want to. Enjoyed the classes and I'm sure to come back to you with questions as and when they arise. Cheers! and all the very best Nikhil. Thank You!!!!

Thanks for choosing to learn with us BK! It was great having you for the sessions. Especially the fact that you you all had slightly different musical inclinations made it all the more interesting! Feel free to reach with more questions, I'm sure your enthusiasm will inspire more folks on the platform! Look forward to hearing more of your music. Wish you the best!

My experience learning at DJP with Nikhil sir was wonderful. I have never looked forward to classes or assignments more than I have here when I was learning music production. His explanations and class exercises changed the way I was approaching music production. I play guitar and keyboard and never understood how to compose or make a song. After learning from him I can say I'm more knowledgable and confident with making music now.

Thanks for the feedback Rohan! It was great having you for the classes. Would love to hear some of those guitar driven ambient music come together as releases soon!

This is one of the best courses I have taken. Nikhils knowledge on music production surpasses all. Most importantly he is very modest and is always pro active to help his students get to their fullest potential.

Thanks for such high words! Glad the classes were so helpful to you. Hope to see some music soon!

Nikhil is one of the most patient tutors I have come across. For an audiophile like me to learn music production felt like rocket science. Nikhil took his time to ensure I understood each and every topic before moving on to the next one. I am not a professional musician but after training with Nikhil I can proudly say I a good music producer now. Special mention and thanks to the DJP team who made the whole process very smooth and easy for noobs like me.

Nikhil sir classes was very nice. He explains the lessons as and when he teaches them and the exercises he gives are also very fun and I was able to learn a lot. I never felt like I couldn't ask any question at all and he was always open to us asking more. I had a great time learning with you Nikhil sir.

I joined Nikhil sirs online batch earlier this year. Before this I knew only a little bit about music production through youtube tutorials and a few courses on Udemy. The problem I faced was I had a lot of doubts but no one to ask so I never fully understood certain concepts. Nikhil sir is very knowledgable and patient with all his students and cleared all the doubts I had before and during the class. I have a much stronger grasp on music theory, synthesis and sampling now thanks to his course.

Thank you for your feedback Kavish. Definitely right about the difference live interactive sessions can make over prerecorded lessons. Was great having you and look forward to some new music!!

Almost done with my masterclass course and I have to say I've learnt and understood more in less than a month under Nikhil sir than I ever have in all my years of self learning through youtube and other video sources. He is very patient and is very articulate in the way he explains different concepts and techniques. I will 100% recommend Nikhils course to anyone wanting to learn music production. Thank you DJP Media team for all the help.

I'm a singer and always wanted to produce my own music. I came across DJP Media very recently and have already learnt so much more than I thought I could through Nikhil sirs video courses. I used to think making music was quite a complicated process but Nikhil sir has explained everything so easily that anyone can immediately understand. Eagerly waiting to join this masterclass.

Great to hear Shruti! Look forward to having you on our upcoming masterclass.

Having completed my production course with Nikhil, I have already reached great heights, in this short amount of time. I have been hired as a producer and mixing and mastering engineer. And also have received job opportunities for making beats for a brand. Absolutely none of this would have been possible, if it weren't for Nikhil's mastery in the field and also his approachability on any given topic. One of the best, for sure!

I finished my music production course in 2020, here nikhil was my teacher, he helped me to master ableton live 10, he explained the music theory and technical knowledge about sound frequencies very well. Now I am able to create my own sounds using different wavetables using ADSR. He explained every thing in a easy way. This course helped me a lot to build my music career.

I joined Nikhil's masterclass on Ableton last year. Its been a year now and I am comfortable handling Ableton and have completed many releases on YouTube. The course itself covers a major portion of all aspects that are required to be a composer. Thanks to Nikhil who patiently taught all aspects and answered all my questions. I would strongly recommend this course if you are starting your journey as a composer and would like to quickly learn a DAW. Thank you again Nikhil and DJP Media. I wish the team all the best and good luck!
