Discipline, Motivation, and Self-Actualization with Auvic

“”Strive for perfection, but know you that you’ll never be perfect”. Even the masters in any field, they’re always going to be a student. You’re always constantly learning.”—Auvic

In this interview, I sit down with the talented producer Auvic. This episode dives deep, as we discuss the importance of knowing yourself, knowing your strengths/weakness, and knowing how you learn as an artist. Auvic also discusses his thoughts on formal education and why Berklee wasn’t the right fit for him. He’s extremely insightful, offering up practical advice on inspiration, motivation, and much more.

This episode is brought to you by EDM Foundations.
EDM Foundations is my course for new producers, those who’ve been producing for under 12 months, or even those who’ve just started. You can learn more about it here.

The whole idea of the EDM Foundations course is that you learn the fundamentals of music production by actually doing and not just learning concepts. The course consists of 12+ hours worth of streamable video where I walk you through the creation of 3 songs, and give you advice for creating your own original.

We’ve had over 600 people sign up for the course, many of them have had great results. Hope to see you in there.
