£30 Ableton Music Production Taster

Music School HackneyOur two-hour music production beginners taster classes worked so well in Logic, they are back, but this time in the revolutionary software Ableton Live, and the much talked about brand new version 9!

In just two hours you will learn how to lay down some beats and produce a track in your genre and even burn it to a CD to take home. We aren’t expecting any no. 1s from these beginner taster classes, but you will get a really good feel for music production, which will help you decide if you’d like to take it further before committing to buying software or taking a longer course.

Come and see for yourself what sets us apart from other music production schools, and why we are the college of choice for beginners, as well as established professionals which recently have included Stefan Olsdal from Placebo, Adam Fieck from Babyshambles, Tayo and Des’ree!

All taster enquiries are handled via email only. Please use the map on our website because the postcode for our new building doesn’t quite match up on online maps yet. The main thing to remember is that we are in the large red brick building in between Mare Street and the railway bridge. We are on the right as you come from Mare Street.

If you’re late, we will have already started and you will not be able to catch up as we would have to stop the whole group to catch up any latecomers, and that’s not fair on them so we don’t. You will not be able to get a refund or book yourself on another session without paying again. Please leave yourself plenty of time. If you are very early, we have an art gallery in the building which you can look around for free, and there’s also a nice cafe/pizzeria.

If you cancel and give us fewer than 48 hours notice regardless of the reason, we will not be able to find a replacement so you will only be able to rebook by paying again.
