Learn to write and produce music in classes of no more than six people.
Why choose Garnish?
Garnish is not an accredited higher education provider, rather our focus is on training you to develop the practical skills and experience you need to build a career in music production. We are a boutique school, so you will learn from active industry professionals in small groups giving you a personalised learning experience. We encourage a culture of mentoring, enabling you to draw on your instructors’ experiences and get their feedback on your music.
The Garnish Industry Diploma offers you a total of 360 hours of learning time and 24 hour access to the Garnish studio when you’re not in class. Class time will be hands on and the syllabus is compromised of modules in the following subjects…
Make the music you love
Throughout the course you will be encouraged and supported to write your own music as a priority. Our instructors’ tastes and experience are varied, so they are able to support in a number of genres from EDM to singer/songwriter.
The course includes two full days at Goldsmith Music Studios, where you will be guided by their engineers, gain experience with high-end vintage gear and have the opportunity to record what you’ve written in a professional environment.
Everyone who completes the course will receive a certificate of completion, however, students can also opt to take an RSL graded examination in music production. This is a great way to reinforce what you’ve learnt on the course, benchmark your skill level and gain some UCAS points.

Garnish Music London does not have formal entry criteria. We understand that people begin their musical journeys in different ways and we want to support that.
However, in order to ensure that our students get the most from their course, they should be able to demonstrate at least two of the following…
We have our very own boutique sample label Lazerdisk Sound. Garnish students get all of our packs (mostly written and produced by Garnish instructors) for free, and an exclusive pack just for Garnish students not sold on the site! It’s recorded individual keys from Mark Ronson’s Mellotron M4000D, which our label chief Zack Johnson meticulously recorded in Mark’s studio in Hollywood. Thank you Zack and Mark!
