Ask The General

For many years I'm receiving a lot of questions from all kinds of Producers. Since a lot of questions are repeating themselves, I decided to make a Video Series called "Ask The General". Here you find the full Archive of this Video Series including a little description of what questions are answered in the Video.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments of any of my Videos or post them in the Hard Dance Producer Network Facebook Community.
