Overview, likes and dislikes of each parts of the training Level 1

Once you are signed in you will have the pleasure of discovering the three levels of training soundtrap offers in music. There is also a podcast training but for this blog I'm just going to focus on music but I also did the  podcast one so I fully recommend you do both. 

Let's talk level 1 what is great about this Course is that it’s a nice introduction to Soundtrap as an educator it takes you through everything you need to know in the very beginning from :

  1. Outside the Studio 
  2. In The Studio - Universal Skills
  3. Inside The Studio - Music
  4. Test & Closing

Things I liked include 

  • Simple to follow and understand 
  • You could retake the test at the end if needed 
  • How it feeds my determination and competitive spirit to want to receive the certificate and badge at the end and if you're anything like me that motivates you to give it 100%

 Dislikes Include 

As an educator I found it frustrating that I couldn't skip a section if I already knew what to do. Yes, I agree it’s good to refresh but I would have prefered the option.
