Course Level

This course is the best way to get started producing music, with the same tools and techniques used to create your favourite records.
Previous experience or musical knowledge is not required. As long as you have an interest in producing music, we'll guide you every step of the way.

If you DO have some experience with Logic, Ableton, FL Studio or other software, this course is the perfect way to fill the inevitable gaps in the knowledge of any self-taught producer, answering your questions about music theory, mixing, sound design and how to promote your music when it's ready.

Only Electronic?

The techniques covered in this course apply equally well to pop, r'n'b, and many other styles of music. The focus of our course however remain electronic music: all forms of dance, house, techno, progressive, urban, hip-hop, grime, dubstep, trap, or anything more experimental.

All these genres have one thing in common: the sound quality and the choice of sounds are almost more important than the notes you play. So while there are many other places where you can learn Logic or Ableton, here we look specifically at how to use Logic or Ableton to produce tracks with a particular sound.

Zero Requirements

You don't need to own a computer or have any knowledge of music theory. In our classes each student has a dedicated computer equipped with all the necessary software and sounds, and our staff are there to help at all times.
The only 'requirement' to enjoy this course is a sincere interest in music, in the sense of having an idea of what you like and the kind of music you'd like to produce.

LOGIC or ABLETON

Choose if you prefer using Apple's Logic or Ableton Live as your main instrument throughout the course.
The techniques and general concepts remain the same, but if you already know one you have the option of learning the other. Feel free to contact us if you'd like some advice on which course is better for you.

Course Outcome

While there is no limit to how much more you can study and learn, we expect that by the end of these four weeks you will be already capable of creating your music using samples and instruments, recording vocals if you want to, mixing it, and putting it online for everyone to hear.

  • It's amazing when you're shown the way... It's not really about the fancy toys, it changes how you listen to sound.
