Logic Pro Course

Learn to produce music, using logic pro x

Introduction

Never has the electronic music scene been so diverse, exciting, and so easy to be a part of. The explosion in the amount of affordable, professional-level home studio kit, and the opportunity to have your music heard by anyone with an internet connection has brought music production to a whole new group of people.

Are you excited about the prospect of writing electronic music, but are unsure where to start? Not sure what kit to buy? Unsure how to get the most out of the kit you might already own? Are you desperate to turn the ideas in your head into a finished track?

Every element of music production on Logic Pro X (mac only) is covered: from creating ideas using software and hardware instruments and audio samples, through to the arrangement and mixdown of your finished track. If you’re a PC user, check out our equivalent Ableton Live Course. 

Individual Workstations

learn music production

The EMP course is a no-nonsense crash course which will show you exactly what you need to know to start producing tracks in any style of your choosing. You will be using a combination of computer-based sequencing software, virtual instruments, effect processors and hardware.

LOGICAL PROGRESSION

 

Classes take place in our Midi Lab, where you will have ample time to practice, ask questions and get advice tailored to the type of music you are trying to create.

Each student will have their own workstation (a supercharged iMac) with a large selection of virtual instruments and effects to get to grips with. Apple’s Logic Pro X (mac only) is the focus of the course, although students are introduced to other DAWs on the market to help give a balanced view.

START MAKING MUSIC

 

This short course is an ideal stepping stone for beginners who aren’t sure about committing to a diploma course, answering any questions you may have on music production.

Each lesson builds on the techniques gained during the course, incrementally adding new elements to the track you’re writing. You will leave us with a finished track, and a good idea of what kit you’ll need to get started at home, or how best to use the kit you might already have.

Next start date – March 18th 2017, 19th & March 25th, 26th 10am – 3pm (2 weekends) of training, and 4 weeks with unlimited practice time.

The content of the course was amazing given the time frame – we covered so many different aspects, I left the course with a whole new angle on producing.
