The EP in 30 Days Course really lives up to its namesake, Jason explains some key concepts that everyone who wishes to make music and actually FINISH their music needs to know. Of course there’s a catch though, don’t expect to finish your EP in 30 days just half-assing your way through it but if you really commit yourself and put in the time and work necessary, an EP in 30 days is completely within your reach and Jason helps you get there through every step of the way. I’ve taken courses in Dubspot and other online courses that have helped me learn a lot of the technical stuff (like how to use a compressor for example) but no course has been as efficient as this one in actually getting you to FINISH your music, props to Jason for developing this method, it teaches you the NUMBER ONE skill producers should have: being able to finish music at a constant rate. Like I said before, the only catch is that you really need to commit and work hard for his method to give results.
I’m gonna be releasing an official remix on spotify for a local artist I’m really excited about it. I also want to thank you because your course is a big part of why I got this opportunity. I’m also working on an EP with a local singer and the techniques and knowledge you taught and shared with us in the EP30 course are the cornerstone of the workflow I’m handling with her and it’s going really well.
Your course is amazing, you’re really helping a lot of people with it, thank you and congratulations I hope you keep getting a lot of students
As a life-long musician and one who has fallen in love with modern composing on computers and DAWs like Ableton, I can’t recommend Jason Timothy’s course enough, esp. for those who need to build a song-writing process toward getting music written. Turn the 8-bar loop into a finished track. Jason will help you.
” Jason really helped me make progress when I had been standing still and unable to complete my music for a long time, thanks!”
Well done Jason on constructing a down to earth, straight to point course that pulls no punches and doesn’t get side tracked. If you’re a starter, but not a finisher, this may be exactly what you need to start getting you over the line. The course presents you with a tried and tested workflow designed for getting results and fast.
“Jason is a natural “teacher.” Meets the student exactly where the student is. Simple or complex, he has both covered.”
I really benefited a lot from taking the Create an EP in 30 Days Course. Everyday was a new task that lead you step by step through the process to creating a track from the ground up. The daily work books and video walkthrough’s were very thorough and extremely informative for even an intermediate producer like myself. We were all able to share ideas on the Facebook group page as well and help others who were feeling overwhelmed and stuck in a rut. Jason gave great feedback for daily homework assignments and really made this the most positive productive experience possible. This was a great way for me to start the new year by taking this course. I was able to finish two complete tracks by the end of the 30 days. I highly recommend this to anybody who struggles to finish tracks.
Yes, this course gave me a good structure to work from start to finish on a track and come out with something good in a very short space of time and consistently again and again. I can take the techniques and apply them immediately to unfinished tracks on my hard drive. There’s no doubt in my mind, i know exactly what to do from A-Z.
I have had a great experience on the course and completed 3 tracks in the 30 days and also managed to get one of the tracks signed to a label.

Sure. Feel free to share
“This course was my first time paying for online tuition. Having read Jason’s blog posts for a while and watching some videos I felt I choose wisely. And I was right. What I appreciate the most is that the course is based on really good thinking, and always with the aim to move you into higher productivity and more finished tracks. The course is about learning the process and not about “cool tricks and gimmicks,” although there is a lot of stuff to be learnt (and relearnt). I recommend this course to anyone determined to finish more songs. I guess I should say this as a graduate, but I’m staying on. I’m taking the course next time as well.”
After endless trawling the web & locally for tutoring this should be your GO TO course for learning the essentials in producing electronic music in Ableton. Proven results…!
This course really help me understand and utilize the basics that Ableton Live has available and the knowledge to truly make an EP in 30 days…. This course allows you to get your hands dirty in all the details, bells & whistles that allow you to truly make music… I had several brake through moments doing this course were questions were answered and I was truly able to get into a creative flow using Ableton Live to paint creatively with sound…. I was able to design and lay out 2 EP’s in one month… So happy I did the course. Truly recommend this to anyone who really wants to jump start their learning curve in ableton and get things done…
Jason started this course with an interesting statement: “Music making is like cooking”. He definitely guides through the fundamentals of music making in a clear and simple way. He is available anytime to help you through the all process. Now, I am on my journey to create my own recipes 🙂 Thank you Jason for your help and wisdom. I discovered ways to organize my time in order to produce music more consistently.
Jason has truly taught me the art of getting to grips with Ableton Live and I’m amazed by the track which I’ve already produced, after completing the lessons. The coursework is easy to follow with PDFs and videos to go through. Jason was always on hand to offer support, no matter how basic-sounding the query was. I look forward to using the helpful tips and working on my new tracks with all the invaluable experience gained from this superb course. Highly recommended if you’re serious about making quality music.
I can’t say enough about this course. For me, an experienced Ableton user, this course gave me a fresh look at the program and a guideline for producing music efficiently going forward. I have to hand it to Jason: he knows his stuff! Highly recommended!
Best thing I Ever did was committing to this course, trusting in Jason’s approach & his knowledge to forever more have a life filled with Music… & me making it!!! ????????????????????
One of the best things I’ve learned throughout the course has been the process from beginning to end. I have sped up my work flow by 5. No time for procrastination anymore. Thanks Jase you’re a legend!!!
I found this course to be a huge step in my productivity and workflow. It’s turned music into a regular habit where I spend at least thirty minutes or more every day producing, mixing or just experimenting with new sounds. My 30 day buddies and i challenged ourselves individually to spend no more than an hour and a half every day on one basic track a day for 30 days. It was a huge challenge but we finally finished and really surprised ourselves with how much we could achieve in such a short time with the support of one another! Cheers to Jason Timothy Ward
Enjoyed the journey so far. Seeing as i have only managed to to get 2 tracks finished in the 2 years i have been trying to learn music production to get 1 nearly finished in 18 days is a revelation to me.Cheers Jason for your support through
I personally have finished 2 of my 3 that I had a goal on and will be starting the third this evening. This class has completely changed my workflow and substantially increased my pace on tracks. Feeling pretty good
Wayne Wright …your techniques for creating your signature kicks, sounds, reverb etc… is so profound. I know that a lot of the big label guys are doing this.
Big love !
After finishing your course I changed my pace in producing and am producing a track a week /and sometimes even more)
In 20 days I will have a second release out! You really changed my music life. Thank you so much.
Following Create an EP in 30 days course has been a great experience (and it is still a great experience because when you watch for the second time the lessons you understand better and better some details). One of the most important aspect of the course is day by day work. Every single day you feel that making music is mainly in your approach. At the end of the 30 days (and even earlier) you realise that you really created something. At the end I could really publish the EP in a few days! Thanks Jason, this January with your course has been the best way to start the year!
I won 2nd place in a remix contest held by “Black Lemon Records”. They are going to release my track on the 14 of October. This would not have been possible without your training. Thank you for the mentoring!
hey Jason! how’s it going? so i just wanted to give you another testimonial for your 30 Day EP Group
So a couple months ago i was approached by my label boss, Christopher Lawrence, to remix his collaboration with Indecent Noise. A huge opportunity in my hands. The only catch was he wanted the remix in about a week. I battled with the decision and ended up accepting the remix request. Using a lot of the tools you gave us in the course, i was able to complete the remix with a couple of days to spare!
If that wasn’t enough, when it was released, it cracked the Beatport Top 100 Trance Releases and ended up at #6 for a few days! I don’t even feel at all like i half-assed the remix just to finish it at all. i put my heart & soul into it and using the tools you gave us, i created a track i’m absolutely proud of.
I’m definitely proud to have taken your course and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone
Here is a link to the remix on soundcloud so you can hear proof that the course works:
This whole course has been great so far but I found this one[lesson 13] to be incredibly helpful. The techniques for actually creating build/break sections are already making me more productive..
“Your workflow techniques are amazing. I was just showing a friend of mine some new things in ableton. We put together a song very quickly using the custom drum racks you described in your lessons.”
This course provides a philosophy and a methodology that can help you in whatever stage of music production you are in. I have been producing for 5 years and last year I accomplished my dream of getting two songs signed signed and and on Beatport yet I felt this class, from a methodology and practical standpoint, has served me extremely well as far as revealing to me a repeatable and measured process for song composition. I have taken music composition courses and private mixing and mastering courses and this has been the most effective course for revealing to me a reliable methodology for producing material and providing strategies to avoid artist block.

Amazing course, truly focused on completing music. I was able to complete 3 full songs in the 30 days which was more than what I completed in all of 2015!!

I recommend this course to anyone who spent a ton of money on Ableton, extra plug-ins, and instruments and has not finished a track. I get the support I need from a community of learners no matter where they are in the process. No judgements, just an emphasis on progress with the process, not perfection with one single aspect. Take the course, learn Ableton and make an EP at the same time.
Powerfully motivating. I’m a huge procrastinator so seeing myself working every day thanks to the course was almost magic by itself.
And then there are the clear and simply effective lessons Jason provides you with that make this course all the better.
I make, and most importantly finish music faster now because of it.Simple, straight to the point, and very effective! Thanks Jason My biggest accomplishment was that I actually sat down every day to do some work. I have this gut feeling that I’ll be able to keep doing this, so yeah, I do feel empowered in my ability to make music more quickly and consistently
Can’t say it enough: Thank you Jason for the great lessons and the awesome mentoring!
Christopher Van Dyne
The course took my understanding of ableton & confidence to use it to the next level I was struggling to break through to. I’ve actually accomplished a lot in learning a whole new way to write & look at my projects in a different way
JD (asked his name to remain anonymous)
“I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to work faster and with more creative options, regardless of level of experience. It’s better than most courses out there in that it not only introduces you to a plethora of new techniques in context, without having to troll through pages of boring manuals, but it also helps you to learn new, creative workflow processes. It’s like sitting in the studio over the shoulder of a good producer friend who then lets you try it out for yourself and gives you personal feedback. Exactly what I needed.”
This course was a game-changer. I have never learnt so much about music production in such a short amount of time.
Jason Ward’s “Complete an EP in 30 Days” was an absolutely brilliant learning experience. I find myself in the studio pushing out more track than I ever have before and not only that, the music being produced is coming out 100% more professional and structured.
jason is a great coach and mentor. his methods will work and the course will work if you put the time in. I have completed two tracks in 30 days compared to two in about 3 years
Best course ever. Jason is super responsive and he knows his stuff. He’s not only good with the technicalities of the course but he will push you harder and motivate you so much that you’ll end up reaching your goals. Some cool little tricks in the course you wouldn’t want to miss. Good luck and happy music making 😀 My workflow and creativity has improved a lot over the days. Learnt some completely cool tricks which I wouldn’t have otherwise.
and most importantly I almost completed my first song. Just need some more practice before i can release a professional sounding track.
Like I said before man… you have created the P90X of music I haven’t been able to sit down and just create beats like this ever
The knowledge I got out of the course will follow me into my next attempts at creating tracks. Before this course, I knew a section of a song would be boring or suck but I didn’t have an approach on how to fix it. I’m now better equipped to solve problematic parts of my tracks and to be able to ask the right questions if I’m really stuck.
your course encouraged and motivated me to write not fragments but complete songs for the EP. I am really looking forward to releasing my first EP in the first half of this year.
So I just wanted to make a little confession about this course…In just 14 days of doing this I have accomplished more with my music than I have in the past 6 months or longer.
I have been doing a lot of self reflection on my bad habits then creating plans to break them down and build better ones.
The day 1 workbook was a total game changer for me. Once I began to put the ideas into action I realized an immediate change in my attitude towards music and life.
I just wanted to say thank you Jason Timothy Ward
im excited to see where I’ll be later down the road.
What has everyone elses experiences been like? I’d love to hear from older members especially.
To be honest , all my progression is the result of 2 persons .
Your course gave me all the skills that I needed to be better and better writting electronic music
But more then that , it gives me the confidence to the things .Because of you , I can allready picture my music in the future , and I know that Im sounding better and better , and this will continue for ever and even after .
to be honest , because of you , I can now say that Im an ARTIST , and a Music PRODUCER , without any doubt .
Something that Im was not able to say 6 month sooner .
You are doing fantastic things with your students , and you will always stay in my mind because of that .
Making music is the only thing that makes my life seems REAL , and Enjoyable .
Many thanks Teacher , and One love to you.
Wow Jason. Thank you so much for the detailed responses!
I’ve been told many times that “the best art is stolen.” Which is very true in every aspect. Not blatantly stolen but taking ideas and making it your own personal creation.
Since signing up for the 30 Day EP course I have been putting in my time everyday. Some days it’s only 30minutes sometimes it’s 2 hours but so long as I actually sat down and put forth all my effort and tried I am happy about it and feel accomplished.
I’ve been so inconsistent with making music the past three years that I’ve probably finished 10 songs and left 100 ideas unfinished and rotting away. I’ve let it go on for far to long and I have to stop it. I’ve tried creating my own very detailed plans for every step of the way to do an EP in 30 days and I’ve failed over and over. It almost got me to the point of selling everything and just giving up. I didn’t though and I’m happy with my decision.
Since starting your course I’ve remained more consistent than I have in years. Today after working for 2 hours on music I had a feeling and that feeling was that I had fun, I didn’t even realize how much time passed cause I was just working away bobbing my head. It’s been so long since I’ve felt that way.
I owe a lot of what I’ve been accomplishing these past two weeks to you and your teachings and I’m so grateful for that. So thank you.
Even if this EP doesn’t come out exactly as I wanted I’ll still be happy cause it’ll be the first time I’ve done 2 songs in one month. Also I’ll just start another 2 songs the next month and keep moving forward. At this point I’m more concerned about quantity over quality cause I know I’m improving my skills to create better music.
I know this was all a little strung out but I just wanted to let you know that your course has helped me in many ways and I’m very grateful for that.
Hey Jason, I just wanted to say thanks for the great lessons learned from the video clips. Even though i’ve been working with Ableton for quite a few years, I just had to see it all in detail and at the same time learn some awesome tricks. This course has made a huge difference in my music production and within the short period of time.
I started my attempts to make songs in Ableton and learn production techniques about 6 years ago. But only after this course I realized that I don’t need any theory anymore, and daily taking actions towards finishing of my songs is only the thing what I need. Thank you!
Jason brings to this course a deep knowledge of Ableton Live, a well thought out series of clear and organized lessons, a truly generous spirit, and a commitment to meet his students exactly where they are. Anyone creating and/or producing electronic music (or interested in starting) would be crazy not to take this course. 2 songs completed.
Yes Yes Yes!!! You are amazing and I am grateful!
This was the most challenged I have ever been in terms of music production. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to have been involved. It has spurred me to get up off the sidelines and move in a direction I have always desired.
I truly enjoyed the pace and material presented. Simple and effective song writing techniques packaged in manageable chunks.
Finished two tracks !

from what i had seen so far and the feedback/positive vibe i got from you when i sent you emails, you gave me a sense of caring rather than a money making monster (developing a course just for the money). to me you cared more about my progression in the music and took into consideration how many daemons i was dealing with with regards to pain and so on and gave me a kind word when you could sense i was down due to my mistakes. the course in structurally perfect for any new beginner and having Jason as a wing man of “note” (excuse the pun), he is the wing man you don’t want to leave at home when hitting the bars looking for the lady’s – that’s how good he is!! on the music side of things of course
Jason Ward’s “Complete an EP in 30 Days” was an absolutely brilliant learning experience. I find myself in the studio pushing out more track than I ever have before and not only that, the music being produced is coming out 100% more professional and structured. I was able to get two full productions ready for master and start the layout on a third. I feel really good about the amount of work I got done seeing as I still worked 50 hours a week through this course.
I’d like to thank you Jason. That course was game changing for myself. I knew it after 3rd lesson when I found what I was doing wrong all the time. I’ve learned how to use all the tools. Now I can make a track in a day or two and it’s good quality track (and I am still improving)
I would recommend 30 day ep course to everyone who wants to make good quality music in short time. I’ve done four tracks in two weeks because we started making music for real after 14 days or at least I have.
I completed 3 Tracks in the genre i wanted to explore. I am happy with the result. As a next step i will start to get in contact with record labels to get these tracks signed.
This course gave me the structure that I needed to make my tracks actually sound produceable. I’ve never felt so confident in my ability as a producer before taking this course. It has also created a song writing habbit that has me consistently coming back to my computer and working on the next track. Yes! I created 2 solid tracks within 30 days. I have never before been able to do that. You da man Jason.
What I have accomplished in the last 16 days of the lessons have greatly empowered me to want to create more music! I actually get minor withdrawals if I have not created anything musically wise! By the time I finish the lessons 30 days I hope to have fluently created a total of 3 tracks for the EP I am building! You my sir have probably been one of the biggest impacts of my life in the last 5 years! Music is life to me and you have helped me bring myself closer to music! Every time now I listen to music I always break down the song and try to figure out how they are making the song! Very intriguing to me! Thank you for taking your time to put this 30 Day EP course together!
Thanks Jason for make me find out my best version of beatmaking, as quickness as quality, that you achieve to keep it for myself, through of clearly lessons that was and gonna be right guides for the future. One of my aims is done, for achieve to complete 3 songs in a month, following just the processes and the basic instruments of ableton and being stricted with all of the steps (as required).
Another one derived from one of my 3 tracks, was to complete one of them in just one day, something for me unexpected.
And, of course, i am feeling ready for keep on my productions for bring it on to the next level as soon as posible to reach the best side of myself.
I can finish songs. And I feel confident making songs. You are awesome, keep doing what you do.
Fantastic experience! Well worth it! Jason has helped me find out what it looks like to chase a creative art, then process it through Ableton for others to enjoy. So many tips and tricks to learn! Yes! You gave me the opportunity to rethink my approach in everyway. I quickly began to understand that my biggest hurdle was learning to put my ideas into ableton. I was lost finding certain sounds and samples and had no idea I was losing valuable time creating. Once realized, I focused on communicating my ideas into ableton. Now I understand that there are so many available tools within ableton, I just need to learn to use them. Thank you for your straight forwardness and your ability to listen. You seem to truly care for your students success!
I lost the pace beginning within the first week but I realized that I was not focused on learning but focused on finishing. I reevaluated and decided to take my time and truly absorb the lessons. So glad I did! You are a fantastic teacher, thank you for your desire to help others!
This was a really solid course that will help you get going and out a slump or writers block, especially if you’re just starting. Lots of great content to help you push on when it’s easier to just give up or start something new. I was able to make two songs and I definitely feel empowered
I stumbled on musictrainingsoftware.com accidentally through one of Jason’s youtube videos on Ableton. I then proceeded to sign up for the course, thinking “what do I have to lose?” This was one of the most thorough and informational courses I have ever taken on a software. I feel very comfortable with the work flow of Ableton and have learned a handful of tips and tricks with production in general. Jason has enabled me to express my musical ideas through the software and is readily available to help out if necessary. Thank you Jason.
