Music Production Courses

Our Ableton Live Music Production Course was specially-crafted to be both an incubator for the novice with no music production experience, and a guide for the current music producer that wants to learn the power of Ableton Live. You only need the will to learn to get started. We have the latest version of Ableton Live and the Ableton Push 2 controller readily available in class.

Our Music Production Course is nine months long and split up into four multi-week sessions. Concurrent sessions can be taken directly following the completion of a previous session, but can also be paused for a later date to accommodate versatile schedules:

  • Novice (6 Weeks) – $300
  • Amateur (12 Weeks) – $600
  • Intermediate (12 Weeks) – $600
  • Advanced (6 Weeks) – $300
  • Advanced Plus (Optional After Completion)

Additional Details:

  • You meet once per week on the day/time you signed up for until completion
  • Classes are in an intimate setting with no more than four students
  • Cost equates to roughly $50 per class
  • Full payment required for Novice class
  • Automatic weekly payment option available via PayPal after Novice completion
  • All students are evaluated after session to determine if they are ready to move on
  • Courses are generally available 1-2 weeks before new sessions start due to room availability

Upcoming courses are listed below when available.
