our partners.

IO Music Academy has partnered with industry leading brands in order to offer students educational pricing, special events, and more.




Our DAW of choice, Ableton Live 10 is the center focus of our music production curriculum. Students learn the ins and outs of the software as well as its hardware counterpart, Push 2. IO Music Academy students are able to purchase Ableton Live at a 40% discount.



As many of our students are DJs, we feel Beatport is the perfect partner for all things music. Look out for special collaborative events and masterclasses as well as special deals for IO Students.
