Anthony Thogmartin of Seed to Stage

A Word From Anthony

My name is Anthony, the creator behind the Seed To Stage Youtube channel - a source for knowledge around all things music creation. Over my 15+ year career, I've been blessed to be recognized as a nationally touring producer / guitar player of Papadosio, a solo tour songwriter / performer as Earthcry, and an active mixing / mastering engineer with over 200 releases under my belt. During this time, I've amassed a wealth of expertise in these fields, from songwriting and live performance to sound design and mixing.

Initially, I decided to share my know-how via the Seed To Stage Youtube channel, and have now blossomed to providing full size courses designed to help you sharpen your skills in a wide range of topics. I've created what I believe to be the most comprehensive online course for Ableton Live available on the internet. The courses don't rely on teaching only one genre, and instead focus on the skills needed to exceed regardless of the type of music you hear in your head. At their heart, these courses contain all of the insight that I wish someone had been able to succinctly impart to me so many years ago. My goal to make learning easy and pleasant, and as thousands of my students and subscribers can attest, I feel confident that I have delivered upon that goal.

This giveaway is geared toward giving you a diverse set of tools from some amazing partners that can help you level up your game quickly. From the indomitable Moog Synthesizers to the widely used iZotope software, we've teamed up with some of the best music technology groups in the world. It is my hope that the combination of gear here gets you further than any one single item alone. For example, when you combine the Beyerdynamic DT 900 Pro X headphones (I use Beyerdynamics in my own studio) with Sonarworks SoundID calibration software, you instantly have a realtively flat mixing environment in times where you're restricted to only using headphones. Combining the Orba2 Synth with Black Octopus Sounds' massive sample libraries gives you an amazing beat-making palette at your fingertips, made even better when combined with the creative multi-effect plugins made by Devious Machines. And at the heart of it all is Ableton Live, the most powerful music creation software on the market today.

If you'd like to check out a free workshop I've put together including some of my absolute best tips to upgrade the quality of your music, check it out here:

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions?

I'm new to Ableton, which course should I begin with?

Ableton Live is an incredible tool and there are many directions you can go with it. This is why I have created 4 different courses focusing on the 4 main paths you can take, songwriting, mixing, sound design, and live performance. All of these courses can be taken by an absolute beginner, but commonly I will tell new students to begin with the Songwriting and Composition course. The reason is, not only does it teach you the fundamentals of creating music in Ableton, but through that process you will create material that you can use in the other courses.

At the same time, I don't want experienced Ableton users to get the impression that the Songwriting course is only for beginners, as it very quickly escalates into advanced lessons such as deep songwriting tactics, applying music theory to the DAW, and strategies for finalizing your music! All skill levels will benefit. 

Do I need to install anything?

The folks at Ableton have recognized Seed to Stage as a valued educational outlet. Thanks to them I am happy to say that we can offer a whopping 40% discount for NEW Ableton Live Licenses! This excludes upgrades. So if you are new to Ableton (or you're using an illegitimate copy) let us help you get the best price!

Is there a guarantee?

I stand by the content here in these courses and know them to be the largest and most thorough Ableton education resources available on the web. I can guarantee that these courses will not only up your music production game considerably, they will also provide you with an awesome, supportive community and continued mentorship from me and other members via our private discord. 

I am so confident that you will deeply value these courses that I include a 30 day money back guarantee for them if you decide they are not for you. 

What all comes with enrollment?

As a Seed to Stage student, you get lifetime access to the ever expanding set of video lesson content in whichever courses you enroll in. No monthly charges, no drip content, you get it all right away forever. You also get access to our private seed to stage Discord where you can get answers to your questions in real time, feedback on your tracks and performances, support on your musical releases and more. Seed to Stage courses are the real deal!
