This course gives absolute beginners a practical introduction to Ableton Live, under the direction of a professional contemporary music producer. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn.

Read before applying

We have a limited number of places, and due to high demand, we sadly can't guarantee that everyone who applies will get a place. Please note that this course is intended for absolute beginners - if you are already using Ableton or another DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) confidently, please consider giving this course a miss so that someone else can get a place (and come to one of our regular open sessions instead). We prioritise giving spaces to members of marginalised groups and those who would otherwise lack access to musical education.
