EEI Creative Arts Songwriting Workshop
Sound Craft: Principles of Modern Music Production
Module 1: The Art of Beatmaking
Starts March 12, 2022
Every good song starts with a catchy beat, and students will use virtual instruments within a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) to layer drums, a bassline, and chords to create the foundation of their original song.
Module 2: Songwriting Essentials
Starts April 9, 2022
From infectious hooks to epic buildups, students will learn the anatomy of a hit song and how to arrange instruments and structure songs. With mentorship from our instructors, students will build lyrics, rhymes, and melodies over their original beats to compose a full-length song.
Module 3: Mixing & Mastering
Starts May 7, 2022
In order for a song to be ready for the masses, it needs to be expertly mixed and mastered to create a polished, professional-sounding track. Students will use software plugins in their DAW such as compression, EQ, delay, and reverb to enhance their songs and create a fully mastered track that they can release on major music streaming platforms.
For serious artists, our team of experts will provide additional professional-grade mixing and mastering as well as help students distribute their songs on music platforms and receive royalties. Additional fees required.

Mau is a Mexican singer, songwriter, and music producer based in Los Angeles, CA. Mau fell in love with music at a young age when he was diagnosed with ADHD. Music became an essential source of focus and expression with which he felt understood in a way nothing else could. His relationship with music started on drums, then progressed to the bass and then the guitar. Self-taught, he eventually fell in love with the art form of songwriting and honed in on the marriage between music and lyrics as an instrument itself. His passion for songwriting granted him acceptance in to Berklee College of Music where he further progressed his passion for songwriting and music production. Post-graduation, he formed the bands Wolfside and Night Lights, which gathered millions of streams on Spotify and Apple Music. Both of those projects lead him to national tours and opening for acts such as Grandson, Great Good Fine Ok, Joywave, Lamaitre, Mako, and Jawny. During the pandemic, Mau began to focus more on production and began a solo project called MAUMAUMAU. Through that, he has signed publishing and sync licensing deals with multiple agencies such as Position Music, Fulton Street Music Group, Shindig, and Uncorked. He has found that the tools he has polished in songwriting and production have helped him excel in the high-speed environment of sync music and songwriting for media platforms.
