A lot of useful information delivered with clarity. The course teaches the defining aspects of trap but also has the spirit of musical experimentation which first attracted me to the genre.

Thank you Mr.Edwards for creating such a great tutorial on making trap music. I really enjoyed watching and learning the different techniques from beginning to end. One of the best vids out there. There was so much to learn within the hour+ that i took notes on each section! Now, I'm looking forward to applying the theory to my own music. - KHz4HGP

This course lays out the basics of making a trap-style track. However, it does spend a lot of time covering very basic rhythm programming techniques which are pretty much the same whatever style you make. I guess this one is in the category of "If you only watch one tutorial". Also would have liked to know more about how the sounds themselves were created or where they were from as this is not really covered. Depending on your current level, this can be a useful course - especially if you use the MPC software.

I am already a fan of Booker's tutorials and this one is a great addition to his work. I am learning a lot on how to stay faithful to the genre yet he teaches there are no limits to it.
