How did GratuiTous Start Making Beats?

In 2009 he was introduced to FL Studio by his good friend Big B.

After trying the demo of FL Studio for about 3 months, he decided to take the leap and purchase FL Studio, entering into the world of music production where he had no idea what he was doing.

Thankfully, helpful FL Studio Tutorials were available, from the original FL Studio Guru (Scott Fisher) and NFX, which helped him get past the very hard learning curve music production.

Every night he’d practice beatmaking after his electrician job.. but the world of trades was not for Riley.. and becoming extremely passionate for making beats was not helping!

In 2011, he quit his electrician job to venture into beatmaking education with his first website

All my FL Studio Training is now on this website, 🙂

Sadly, not able to generate enough revenue from Beatstruggles (music production education) and (which offered huge discounts on top-notch drum kits at the time), he headed back to finish his Electrical Red Seal, knowing that teaching FL Studio was his true passion.

This proved to be a great decision, while still building his music production education platform in the evenings.

In 2018, he launched version 1 of his beatmaker training platform for FL Studio Users; the first time students could become members to watch all the FL Studio courses.

In 2020, the version 2 revamp was launched with a growing catalog of FL Studio courses.

In 2023, Version 3 of the Beatmaker Training Platform launched, which contains:

  • 35 FL Studio Courses
  • 92 Hours of Beatmaking Education!
  • 524 FL Studio Tutorials / Videos
  • Value: $1149 if courses bought individually!

Real Reviews, Great Results

Student Reviews of FL Studio Courses by GratuiTous (Riley Weller) Reviews [FL Studio Courses]

Sometimes people need reviews for proof if my beatmaker training platform will help them..

First, listen to Music by GratuiTous to see I’m a producer first, educator second. This means I still make beats, and bring relevant information to the trainings.

Second, here’s student reviews of the platform:

You may also be interested in member interviews I’ve had.

Beatmaking is Hard at First..

But don’t give up!

The first 3 months are super hard.. there’s many ups and downs all throughout producer life.. understand your music won’t be the best in your first years.. and you constantly have to read and practice to see results.

At first you see big results, but later on, results are much harder to notice.. but if you look years back, you’ll see how far you’ve come.. don’t give up!

DO NOT COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS.. it makes you feel bad.. especially if you’re still new and learning.

Learning music production, I’ve gained these skills:

  • How to make professional beats
  • Advanced coding to make my website do what I want!
  • How to run a business focused on music production
  • How to write beatmaking books about FL Studio
  • How to run a podcast about music production
  • Truly helping students reach their music goals

Students of all ages have joined the platform, with many seeing VERY good results (ages 15-50+!)

This is because I stayed focused, and like reading & learning!

This is how to find my own sound as a producer, not worrying about specific music genres.

First get your career in place, and build your music skills on the side. This is what I did, which allowed me to reach my music goals! Who would have known over 50,000 students would take my FL Studio? Thank-you so much for your business and support!

Where to Start with your FL Studio Beatmaking Education?

A lot of students first start with my FL Studio Beginner’s Bundle.

Once discovering my to the point beatmaking education style, they then jump to my COURSE PATHWAYS.

Course Pathways is like a college curriculum for beatmakers!

(Remember, anyone can learn a music program, but not everyone can learn to make beats.. course pathways teaches how to make custom beats!)

It’s easy! Just watch Course Pathways from Beginner to Advance.. Within 3 months you’ll see great results!

Make Money in Music Without Selling Beats

Making money in the music industry is tricky if you follow Jesus.

I used to sell beats (worked with a GRAMMY-Nominated Artist) but learned this was wrong regarding the Gospel.. because music teaching Jesus is in a different playing field..

In other words, it’s selling the word of God which should be free..

Learn more in this podcast episode.

Also, if you follow Jesus and sell beats to be used for music with profanity, this also doesn’t align with the Bible’s morals..

That’s why I just teach music production instead.  It’s been amazing, and I’ve built awesome relationships with students.

Just be aware of your actions.. because “doing music” is everyone’s dream.. but money and fame aren’t what you think.

Build your career first, and keep music second, and you may find how it fits into your life for your benefit!
