Course Outline

With our Ableton Live Weekend Music Production Course you will get to grips with one of the most powerful and popular music production software packages on the market. Over the two days, in Sub Bass' central London tuition studios, we will cover the essentials of music making in Live. From understanding the main working interface, its tools and workflow, to making beats, creating musical parts and finally getting the track idea laid down and finished to a good standard.

No musical knowledge is required or expected, please bring a USB key drive with you on the day so you can take your track away with you on completion of the course.

All students will receive a Certificate Of Completion upon successfully completing this course.

"I recently went through the SubBass 'making house music' and 'how to make electro and big beats' online courses and thought they were both fantastic... Overall I'd say these courses are amongst the very best resources I've ever found."
