DIGITAL MUSIC PRODUCTION COURSE

NEXT INTAKE 
6th November 2017 

We provide you with the expertise and confidence to start expressing yourself through music production. Using the state-of-the-art computer software Ableton Live, our instructor will have students working on composing their very own song throughout the course. No formal musical training or background in production is necessary.

The course is made up of 8 x 2 hour classes. Each session will introduce a new material which will help further the students’ understanding of both technical and conceptual. Although we focus primarily on Electronic Music, all the theoretical and practical skills learnt can be applied to all other popular musical genres.
