Starting on 19/01/2021, this practical online music production course will introduce you to the basics of using Ableton Live and give you the know how to make your own music using the latest software and techniques. Ableton Live has become the software of choice amongst many music producers/artists/performaers as it allows for a really creative workflow, it’s very flexible, and it’s intuitive to use. Learn in a relaxed and open environment online, in a small group, and put the skills into practice straight away as you work on your track in tandem.

We will take you through all the basics step by step adding on to the skills each week. Covering areas such as:

• MIDI Instruments & Melody Making
• Beat Programming
• Basic FX
• Arrangement
• Basic Mixing & signal processing
• Bringing your track together


Starting on 27/01/2021, this course is for people who are familiar with using Ableton but are looking to step up their skills, improve their output or could benefit from new techniques to bump up their music making. Whether it be getting your tracks finished, mixing, improving your sound, workflow, etc. There is more contact time allocated to this course to allow for tutor input and review of individual tracks per session etc.

• Creative processes, tips & tricks


One evening session per week for 5 weeks. Starting at 7pm.

Classes take place over Zoom with small numbers. We use some break out and some screen control for exercises and to change up the group learning. We show you how to export and share your work so we can listen and feed back as we go. Each session includes demo/exercises/discussion and interactive elements to help grasp the fundamentals. There are ‘Work-Ons’ in between classes to help the content bed in and we do a ‘Tech Set Up’ session in advance of the course starting to make sure you’re all set up correctly.

We review and feed back on individual progress and queries week to week. Joining in from your own home for short, productive sessions you can slip the training into your normal routine & develop new skills through the colder months.
