Go confidently into the unknown and harvest the depths of your mind. We can't wait to hear the tracks you'll make.


Why do some have a great time writing when others seem to spin their wheels?

Why do some seem naturally original while others languish in imitation forever?

Why do some make great tracks using 4 sounds & others use 1,000 to make crap?

Why do some tracks made in a day beat tracks made in a year?

Why does the work of some amateurs crush the efforts of diligent professionals?

Why can some make 10 tracks in the time another producer only makes 1?

When you start with why, Wise Beyond Your Ears will jump your music knowledge 5-10 years into the future. This is the highest rated course we have to offer at the Dojo. Applied psychology and practical philosophy is our specialty and there is nothing else like this on the internet.

When you complete this course you will:

  • Leap forward 5-10 years in your musical journey
  • Improve your ability to listen
  • Hear and identify problems immediately
  • Unlearn the misconceptions that are holding you back
  • Design an ideal lifestyle for you and your music
  • Build the constant motivation that keeps you coming back
  • Be calm and confident when you get experimental
  • Discover and refine an original style 
  • Master your process effortlessly

Why do you need the illmethodology?

Stop struggling. Develop a unique writing process that makes you effortlessly original.

Sense the invisible aspects of sound to dissolve the barrier between you and your heroes.

Close the gap between the music you're making now and the music you want to make.
