Course Description


Imagine being able to take the sounds you hear in your head and translate those into real life...

How it would feel to create beats easily without feeling confused or stuck in the process?

If you’re anything like most producers who are beginning you love music, but you’re not sure where to start.

You download the software and watch some tutorials on youtube…

You learn the basics but still feel a little overwhelmed...

It feels like every time you begin making a track you either get frustrated by the software or confused about what to do next.

Or maybe you get inspired and find yourself starting ideas but never finishing them.

You end up making a lot of 8 bar loops that don’t ever go anywhere.

You feel discouraged and honestly a bit lost.

I know the feeling.


I’m Kia Orion. I’ve been making music for over 10 years and teaching music production for the last 4.

I wasted a lot of time learning how to make beats. What took me years to learn could have been shortened to a few months.


I had no direction and I was completely on my own.

Sure, I picked up some techniques and ideas from various tutorials…

But my music still didn’t sound how I wanted it to.

I would leave production for months and even years at a time.

Then get inspired and come back to it just to run into the same problems.

Looking back, I realize I made three key mistakes:

1. I focused too much on watching tutorials (instead of actually doing anything…)

2. I tried to learn advanced concepts too soon…

3. I had no framework or process. I split my attention between too many different elements of production and progressed at a snail’s pace.


That’s why I created The Blueprint To Beatmaking: A focused online production program designed to help beginning and intermediate music producers experience rapid growth in a short period of time.

I made the mistakes so you don't have to.

In this course I take a decade worth of my learning and package it into 3 modules.

Blueprint teaches you everything you need to get started making your own hip-hop music, as quickly as possible

You’ll learn:

-A clear step-by-step system to building out beats start to finish

-Exactly what you need to know in order to start making music quickly (no crazy advanced stuff so you don’t get overwhelmed with everything all at once).

-A proven framework for making your own music and creating an original sound

-How to listen to music in a way you never have before

-How to build out 8 bar loops into a full song

-How to finish ideas (not just start them)

-A way to train your ear so you can accelerate your growth and remake your favorite beats

-My secret sauce to mixing with stock plug-ins (might not be what you think)

-How to master your own tracks

What makes The Blueprint To Beatmaking Different?

Blueprint is designed to condense skill development into short periods of focused “doing” rather than only watching.

The program consists of downloadable projects, a customized learning plan, video tutorials, resources, and the project stems so you can build your own beat along with me.

Blueprint is for hobbyists, beginners, and intermediate producers who are tired of wasting time on trial and error and want a clear path to rapid growth.

It's ideal for those who have made beats before, but feel lost in the mixing process or find themselves making a bunch of 8 bar loops and never finishing them.
