To develop your producer skills, you’ll first master Ableton Live. You’ll get a firm grasp of all the basic concepts like MIDI, audio, editors, samplers, synths, effects and plugins. Once you feel comfortable using the program, you’ll start using it to create your own tracks. You’ll learn all about structuring your compositions, making good build-ups and finding the synths and samples that fit your style best..

Music Theory

Music theory for Producers will teach you about scales, melody, rhythm and chords in a way that’s relevant to electronic music producers. Once you understand the basic concepts, we will then use them to build throbbing bass lines, banging beats and flowing chord progressions.


Synthesis/Sound-design will give you a firm grasp of the most common synthesis methods, including subtractive, additive and FM, and apply this in a hands-on way to a wide range of popular software synths so you can work with this. Furthermore, we’ll take a broader look at sound-design and learn about advanced use of effects and sampling- and editing techniques.

When you have all the elements for your track and are happy with the structure, it’s time for Mixing and Mastering!

You’ll learn how to use compression, EQ and reverb to make all the elements work together and make the whole more than the sum of its parts. When the mix is done, you will then take it to another level with Mastering.
During the whole dj producer course, you’ll work towards making a finished demo that could be presented to labels.
