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.

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.
