our program


IO Music Academy's 12-month program centers around creativity, connection, and collaboration. With Ableton at the center, students dive deep into Music Theory, Synthesis, Sound Design, Songwriting, Mixing, Mastering, and Vocal Recording. Throughout the program, students will be challenged inside and outside of class to complete both individual and collaborative weekly assignments. Students leave with their own EP, curated sound library, and what it takes to succeed in the music industry.
