What is the difference between a DJ and a music producer?
 
A music producer is an artist who creates and saves pieces of music. They either make their own tracks from scratch or develop the work of other artists into perfection. DJs, on the other hand, are responsible for playing favorite songs live and mixing them for crowds. A DJ can be a music producer and a music producer can also be a DJ but they are two separate skills to learn.
 
 
 
What defines music production?
 
Music production is the art of creating, manipulating, and recording music to be saved forever. A music producer's job is to layer sounds and melodies together to create music. They use instruments and music production software to create their masterpieces. They can work on songs for anyone walking into the recording studio. Some music producers make their own original tracks and some create music for other artists.
 
What do DJs actually do?

 
Well,  a DJ is a disk jockey. The main job is to play music for others to enjoy. This may be the simplest yet most profound job of the DJ. They are in charge of making sure the crowd is happy at all times, or at least satisfied with the music. The DJ also has an incredible ear and listens to background sounds and beat timing. These skills make the songs he plays flow seamlessly together.
 
 
Is DJing easy to learn?

 
It's easy as pie to learn. The trick is practicing until you're a master. They say that to master a craft you need to put in 10,000 hours of work. Let this class serve as a jumpstart or motivation to your music production journey.
