No prior knowledge necessary. This is a course for absolute beginners. Classes are taught using Ableton Live (the intro version is enough), but the concepts also apply to other software.

Location

All classes are taught online, using Zoom. You can join from wherever, as long as you have an internet connection.

Deep dive

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE

  • The deep dive is an advanced music production class for people who want to start really finishing tracks. It is a combination of advanced production classes, project work and coaching that ensure that at the end of 3 months, you will be autonomously making tracks that are good enough to be sent to labels or played on the radio.
  • The course spans 24 classes, typically on Monday & Wednesday, 18h30-20h30. Classes and coachings are given online.
  • During workshops, students bring in their own projects, and together we analyse and develop them. During the seminars we'll go deeper into technical concepts like synthesis, arrangement, recording, analog synths, mixing, and live performance.
  • The course will dig deep on the genre-specific details of your genre of choice, including urban/hiphop music, and techno/house/trance music, or even IDM and left-field electronica.
  • Get personal followup throughout, with continuous feedback on your productions. In the class we will listen to your projects and together we will problem-solve them to make them shine.
  • As a bonus, students signing up for the deep dive get automatic free access to the synth workshops and behind the scenes tours happening around Brussels.
