Course Outline

The Akai Professional MPC Course focuses on creating and performing electronic music by honing the skills and harnessing the unrivalled workflow of the new MPC touch, the latest member of Akai Professional’s MPC family.

The legendary MPC series has been responsible for some of the biggest tunes in the Hiphop and Trap battlefields, but at the MPC Training Centre we will be focusing on the using this hardware alongside MPC Software to create solid and releasable electronic dance music genres like House, Deep House, DnB, Techno, Tech House, EDM and more.

During the course you will learn the techniques, tips and tricks that paved the way for many scenes of electronic music, whether it is time shifting a snare for neck snapping groove or using the intuitive, seamless sampling feature - the MPC touch has all of the techniques from the early MPCs and a whole host of new features for top quality beat and music production.

All students will qualify for discounts on the MPC Touch and any DJ or Music Production hardware and software through our retail partner Westend DJ.

For the set price of £395 you will get 2 x 4 hour sessions to complete the course, as this is a one2one training course you can of course add more hours to go more in depth.
