Can I monetize my video that contains your music?
For sure! You spend a lot of time and effort creating your videos, you should get paid for it!

Can you play any instruments?
Originally, I started out as a Drummer in a Funk band, I still play from time to time but I got tired of lugging a Drum Kit around
and turned to Music Production instead. I can also play a little Piano, Guitar and usually any other instrument that I can get
my hands on.
Do you do anything else?
In between eating and sleeping, I pretty much spend most
of my time writing music, its the one thing that I have always
had a serious passion for and apart from chilling on a beach somewhere, I can't think of much else I'd choose to do, saying that, I do also play around with Photography, Graphic Design
and Videography, I'd like to spend more time creating videos,
but all roads end up leading back to writing music.
I want to make music, what should I do?
I'm not sponsored by Native Instruments, but I do think Maschine is a great starting point, it's really simple to pick up, user friendly and I guarantee you will make your first loop in an afternoon.
Listen to a lot of music in a lot of styles, inspiration can come
from anywhere and you can learn a lot by listening to anything, even how not to do something! If you are a little deeper into music production then my advice is to be self critical, in other words give yourself honesty, listen carefully to your music and
ask yourself, "what annoys me about this track?" "how could I make it better?".
There are plenty of music production/mixing tutorials (good and bad) on Youtube, watch them all, learn everything about Compression and EQ, then go back and learn about Compression and EQ again, did I mention Compression and EQ?
Above all else, just create music with the tools you have to hand, if you only have a tin bucket, a guitar with 2 strings and a croaky voice, use them!
HOW DO YOU create your music?
My setup is intentionally simple, I find trying to get the best out of what you have makes you work harder to progress.
I mainly use Maschine and Logic Pro, I love Maschine for it's ease of turning an idea into creation so quickly, I can load it up, get a few sounds and start to turn that annoying tune that I have buzzing around in my head into reality, also for those days when there is nothing but silence inside my brain, I can load up a couple of presets, mash some pads and something usually sparks inspiration.
