WHO’S IT FOR?
All Experience Levels 🎯
Whether you’re beginner, intermediate or advanced—the Song Finishing Accelerator will level up your creative output and help you grow.
Do you find yourself constantly abandoning songs? 🎹
Have you stopped growing as a music producer? Does your ‘unfinished’ projects folder keep piling up with half-baked song ideas?
Have you started producing music, but feel stuck? 😅
Do you feel like you’re not getting any closer to making the music you want to be? Is your current ability getting in the way of crafting your sound?
Are you looking to get expert-level feedback on your music? 💬
Feeling like it’s next-to-impossible to get regular, specific & high-quality feedback? Don’t know where your music is going wrong?
Do you want to release more music and grow your artist career? 🤩
Do you want to move past being an amateur and start acting like a pro? Do you want to have a huge pipeline of music finished that you could show the world?
Have you struggled to find a community of producers to level-up with? 👥
Sick of doing everything on your own and want to find others that will help you grow?
Are you constantly starting at the blank DAW, not sure what to do? 🤷
Do you struggle to come up with ideas? Are you worried no song idea will ever be ‘good enough’?
“This program is great because it’s hands-on with your own music. You’ll write 4 songs in 4 weeks, improve your workflow, and get lots of personalized feedback on your own music. The best way to learn is by doing, and this class is a great way to improve, no matter what kind of music you write or what level you’re at. Thanks EDMProd!”

“The program was awesome. It was exactly what I needed in my career at this time. I spent this whole week working on the track I made for week 4 and sent it to a smaller label in Chicago and it’s getting signed for my first release which is definitely a direct result to what I learned from the class.”
If you’re a music producer, you likely struggle with one of these:
You feel inspired sometimes, and enjoy sitting down and making music when this inspiration hits… but when you’re not inspired, nothing happens. You can’t seem to create at will.
You get stuck in the loop phase and can’t arrange and structure your track. Taking your idea from good to great seems impossible because there are so many options.
You always abandon the project when it gets to the last 10-20% because it’s not worth finishing. You think ‘I’ll wait until my next idea is better’, but it’s never quite there…
As frustrating as these can be, you’re only human. Every producer ever has struggled with these same things.
In fact, we asked people joining our Facebook group what they struggle with the most. Here’s the data…
So trust me when I say you’re not alone.
And finishing is something everyone will struggle with at one point.
Because once you learn how to start, then you have to learn how to progress.
And once you’ve done that, you have to learn how to finish.
But why are these three things so damn hard to overcome?
Behind all three of these things are one common enemy – resistance.
Resistance leads to the empty DAW…
…instead of this…
So how did these producers overcome this resistance?
I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
There IS a way you can start & finish unique, high-quality music. Rapidly.
And it kicks resistance’s ass.
You need a system. Something that guarantees you can finish a LOT of music while not sacrificing on creativity or enjoyment.
The good news is that this system DOES exist.
In fact, it addresses all 3 of the above issues – Starting, Progressing & Finishing.
It’s how pro producers don’t have to wait for inspiration to finish when there is a deadline to meet:
How else do producers like Martin Garrix put out a track every few weeks?
And I’ve road-tested this system. It’s how I consistently made 52 tracks in 2020, was able to release way more music, and watched my streams grow rapidly as a result.
Before I could finish music, I had nothing to show the world.
But using a system, I was able to create a pool of finished music that labels wanted to sign.
And last year, I hit over 200k streams on Spotify for the first time…
So, what is this system?
Idea | Develop | Arrange | Refine
The IDAR System is exactly what we use inside the Song Finishing Accelerator to help students finish one song every week.
You follow the 4 steps at a different point in the week as you work on your track.
And the best part? This system is fully flexible. It allows you to be creative, while still directing you on the path to finished, quality music.
Here’s a quick rundown:
Coming up with good-quality original ideas that you’re proud of. The chords, melodies and basslines. The sounds you choose. The main hook.
Improving the quality of your ideas. Changing sounds, layering new things in, doing a rough balance, and fleshing out your full loop.
Going from a loop to full arrangement. Creating sections, building tension and release, creating changes over time, automation and pattern changes.
The last 10%, tweaking parameters slightly, the final mixdown and master, EQing, compressing and much more.
How many melodic anthems has San Holo made?
How many techno bangers has Charlotte de Witte made?
How many trap beats has RL Grime made?
No – not just the 100+ released songs each. I’m also talking about the ones you never heard that are still sitting somewhere on their hard drive.
My bet? Hundreds, if not thousands.
Then it’s no surprise they’re such ‘talented’ producers.
(Even though it’s all hard work and very little talent).
That’s because finishing a lot will lead to improving your quality a lot:
The good news? There is a package you can sign up for today that directly implements the IDAR System, and focuses on quantity, so that you can finish high-quality music consistently…
“I have received tremendous value by enrolling into this cohort. There is a palpable energy that arises when you are working with like minded individuals toward the same goal, and this program helps foster that energy.
Unlike other masterclasses with passive video watching, this program requires you to put in the work and engage in a community. The more you put into it, the more that the EDMProd team can help you succeed. I cannot recommend it enough.”
This isn’t a one-time community. Get access to our private Discord for Alumni where you can continue to grow, share and become a hyper-skilled producer. Meet previous and new cohorts of SFA students.
Want everything you learn in SFA to be wrapped up into one repeatable package? That’s exactly what the 7-Day Song Finishing Plan is.
Take control of your sound with our framework for channeling your unique inspiration. Follow a proven path to discovering and implementing the sounds that truly represent you.
“I’m a relatively new producer and had never fully finished a track in my life. SFA created the perfect environment for me to push myself and feel motivated to finish music on a deadline which produced such incredible results.
By week 2 I was making the best music I had ever made. SFA forced me to exercise muscles that had never been used before and the results were almost hard to believe.
After finishing SFA Im suddenly making music that I thought was at least 1-2 more years worth of hard work away. I highly recommend this course, I got way better at producing music and it was a lot of fun.”
We are confident that this will help you finish and improve your music, but we know that it’s quite a commitment to enroll in a bundle like this.
That’s why we want to give you 7 days to be a part of the program, try it out, and make sure that it’s really helping you.
If you don’t LOVE it, then we’ll refund 100% of your money. No sneaky tactics. No “action-based” refund policy where you have to watch X amount of videos.
Just send us a simple email and let us know if it didn’t work out for you.
Cohort 4 is planned for mid-to-late 2023. Sign up for the waiting list below.
(or 2x payments of $247)
“To be honest, SFA was exactly what I was looking for… I’ve signed up for so many online courses and have really struggled to stay consistent and get through the content. But the biggest challenge has always been that most courses don’t teach you how to finish your own music.
At the beginning of Song Finishing Accelerator, I had only ever finished 3 tracks which were all based off of start to finish courses, but by the end of the cohort I had finished 4 original songs. I’ve learned so much along the way, and the awesome part is that now I know which other areas I need to focus on (sound design, arrangement, mixing, etc.) and most importantly, I feel confident I’ll be able to incorporate new skills into the creative process and actually FINISH tracks.
Finishing music is the most important part to getting better, and SFA strips out all the other distractions to help you do just that!”
Hey, I’m Aden. I have over 13 years of music production experience, and head up EDMProd where I’ve been helping producers for over 4 years.
Outside of that, I produce liquid drum & bass under the alias Artsea, and have also produced many other genres over the years, such as lofi hip-hop, deep house and more.
I’ve been teaching music production for many years, and am excited to help you finish more music inside the Song Finishing Accelerator.
AS FEATURED ON:
“I have gone from spending two+ months on a track to taking two weeks to finish. Also, the quality of my tracks hasn’t decreased. Instead, the quality seems to have improved now that I’m not spending so much time on things that don’t matter and have shifted my focus to having fun writing music again.
I would highly recommend taking this course if you struggle with spending too much time on tracks, especially if you abandon them after all the hard work. Thanks to Aden for putting this course together. I look forward to taking it a second time!”
In the past, students who have finished 4 songs have gotten the most out of the program.
However, we know everyone is different. So you can also aim to finish 1 song, or 2 songs (1 per fortnight) if that works with your schedule. Finishing something is the goal here!
A finished song is something that is final. It’s fully arranged, mixed and has some sort of mastering (we’ll be using a basic mastering chain inside the program).
At the start of each week, you’ll generate the idea, and throughout the week you’ll spend time developing it into the final product.
Ultimately, it’s up to you how you define a finished song. The only real constraint is that you finish something every week, and that you feel that it’s done.
The Song Finishing Accelerator is an extremely valuable experience (not a “course”), and for this price, we believe the results you get will exceed your expectations.
You’ll be getting direct input from experienced producers in the form of live sessions, feedback and bespoke training videos.
Nope! The DAW you use is irrelevant. Although I explain the concepts using Ableton Live, you could be using FL Studio, Logic Pro X, Bitwig, Reaper, Cubase, Reason, Pro Tools or any other software!
Not every music creator has hours to spare each day.
That’s why we’ve kept the Song Finishing Accelerator simple.
One finished song per week. You can spend as long as you need to on a track, but we recommend following the IDAR System outlined inside.
Yes, it will require consistent effort and maybe some adjustments in your schedule, but the benefits gained from this habit are powerful.
Outside of the weekly projects and live sessions, there is the community and training library that you can use for as long as needed.
If you know absolutely nothing about music production, we recommend starting with a course like EDM Foundations first.
You’ll also create 4 pre-made tracks, but we’ll step you through the entire process so you’re not left in the dark.
However, if you’ve been producing for a few weeks or months and understand the basics, then making 4 originals in 4 weeks is an extremely powerful way to learn and improve rapidly.
We recommend this to artists and producers of any skill level.
While we try our best to accommodate for multiple timezones, we know it doesn’t work for everyone.
That said, we record each and every live video session so you can watch back later.
If you need a question answered, you can always ask one of us in the community platform, or send one in advance of the video call so we can answer on there (for you to watch during the recording).
Werun these cohorts every 2-3 months, but can’t guarantee exactly when the next one will be.
If you’re sitting on the fence, join!
We truly believe in this program. The same principles have worked for me and 100’s of other producers. Plus, we’re investing heaps of time into your personal development.
For this program, we offer a 100% 7-day money back guarantee. That way you have a week to see if it’s the right fit or not. If not, we’ll refund you completely.
Of course, if you wish to get your money back before the cohort starts, we’ll refund you 100% too, or give you access to the next cohort.
