Default MIDI Course for Beginner

Looking for an online comprehensive MIDI course for a beginner.
Looking for a course that will also delve into the free protools virtual instruments and explain them thoroughly.
(I am familiar with the concepts and watched lots of free tutorials but Im looking for an organized course.)

You might try somewhere like Udemy.

You can preview the courses usually to check if you can understand or relate well as a listener to various course instructors, and you should check the Tables of Contents. Sometimes there are accents which may or may not be easy for individuals to understand.

However, in my experience, the structure that you are asking for is found with online courses on training and learning sites like Udemy.

I have no affiliation with them, it's just one I use when I want to spruce up knowledge. I've been doing JavaScript courses for example so I can best put to use my SoundFlow subscription when automating tasks in Pro Tools.

Note, Udemy is quite popular. They have many courses, and many sales, but sometimes the price will be higher. Less popular sites, will have fewer courses but maybe the knowledge imparted will be better quality. That is kind of random per teacher-student interaction. Some instructors for these courses are totally available in a Course Q&A section in case you do have additional questions, making it actually more like a real school but much more affordable.

I learned a little by importing midi files into pro tools, I mainly use it to make remix versions of famous songs.

Groove3.com has the best tutorials and I can't imagine they wouldn't have lots of midi included. Everyone I know that signed up for a year has been really satisfied with it

Thanks for the recommendations! I also wish to learn more about MIDI and chose it from Udemy:

I have never learned consciously MIDI things.
