Of all the Music Technology Schools we visited on our Red Bull Music Academy UK lecture tour, I would have to say that we found Manchester MIDI School by far the best.

Free music production courses

These courses run monthly, and are intended to give you a concise, hands-on overview of processes that go into music production – to show you how to turn the ideas in your head, into music heard through the speakers. We’ll take you on a tour of our studios, explaining the different software and equipment you can use to make music. We’ll then have a session in our MIDI Lab where you’ll learn how to program drum beats and write bass lines in the style of your choosing, using Logic Pro X. 

We are the only Music Technology School in the UK who provide totally free, monthly music production taster courses. If you’re a total beginner, or have tried out software demos and want to learn more, this course is for you.

What people are saying about the school

Mary Anne Hobbs

I’m working through the Online Ableton Course so far, but I’ve already done tuition at the school. What’s interesting is that it does take a moment for the penny to drop, and I like the pauses you have left in. It works very well for beginners.

“When I look back at my experiences in Manchester Midi School, there is no doubt that those were some of the most crucial stages in my development. The staff don’t forget you either which makes it all the more special.”

Paul Stevens

“I’ve achieved many life long goals as a result of studying at MMS. I’ve released my first independent track, signed to a well-known Artist Management company and have been lucky enough to be playing at Glastonbury. It’s a dream come true.”

Chris Watson

“I would like to thank DJ Mark One for a magical day that I attended on the DJ Taster course. I would also like to point out to his management team what a superb job he does, he’s an excellent ambassador for the school and truly inspirational.”

I really enjoyed today’s lesson. I loved witnessing how you made that track sound so much better and the idea of me doing that in the future is really exciting. Really looking forward to the coming weeks.

I strongly feel that you can’t put a price on face to face tuition rather then books, websites, magazines and so on. The staff at the Midi school are some of the best in their fields and you will learn from every word they speak so take lots of notes!!!.
