Electronic Music Production – Level 1

Learn the building blocks of music and synthesis through online-Interactive tools that the pros use


Course Description Icon

This beginner course will show learners how to make their own music, explore music fundamentals and production through a collection of classroom  projects.  For the beginner musician, the music they hear and experience when watching films can be truly formative.   This course covers the building blocks of music and synthesis by giving hands-on experience in recording, sound design and composition using the sounds of their everyday lives and mashups where they will  create and perform their own.


Course Description Icon

No prerequisite class.  Just a love for learning.

HARDWARE:  Students must have a laptop or desktop computer.  We suggest a mac but PC works too.  Tablet alone, will not work for this class.  The ideal setup would be one device (phone or tablet) for the conference call.  Another device for Ableton use, giving you maximum screen real-estate when working on in-class projects.

SOFTWARE:  Students will be asked to install software on their laptop.  No costs will be associated with this software.  

As a artist of electronic music, we would like to encourage you add to your digital arsenal by finding time to circle back to these lessons, at some point.
