"I've just finished the how to make house music course with teva and all i can say is - absolutely outstanding. I've been producing for a couple of years but to nowhere near the quality or depth of what you are taught in the course. it says its supposed to take 4 weeks to complete but i was so hooked that I ended up finishing it in 4 days! would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to make electronic music properly - this is the ultimate package. Thank you!!!"
