what we offer

Whether you’re a newbie looking to get started, an experienced producer seeking ways to streamline your workflow, or something in between, our courses are designed to take your production to the next level.

our courses

With Ableton at the center of our courses, students dive deep into Beat Making, Music Theory, Synthesis, Sound Design, Songwriting, Mixing, Mastering, and Vocal Recording. Inside and outside of class, students are challenged to complete both individual and collaborative assignments. To ensure students are able to get hands on from day one, all of our workstations are outfitted with an Ableton Push 2 and Novation LaunchKey MKII.
