PROGRAM

Our curriculum guides you through the creative journey of discovering your own sound and developing it into a unique body of work. You will learn valuable techniques as you compose a portfolio of original tracks. We begin with the basics of production and studio etiquette and immediately follow it up with DAWs (Ableton & Protools). We then delve into the depths of MIDI sequencing & editing. While learning to use it, you will acquire production skills that can be applied to a wide variety of applications from songwriting, to studio production, to laptop DJ’ing. You will learn to compile Ableton sets from audio and MIDI clips, loops, or samples. Our final module on Music & Audio production for advertising & media and an overview of the entertainment business will qualify you as a producer ready to take on the world.
