What Students Are Saying

I took the workshop to learn Ableton, and wasn’t entirely sure if that was what I wanted to use, but I definitely know now that’s what I want to use. Mostly I was singing and rapping and I was having other people produce for me, but now I feel comfortable enough that I want to start producing for myself.

– Sean

My thoughts on music are more diverse now. Before I thought of music in more structural ways, but now I see it as more of based on whatever you want to listen to, whatever you think sounds good.
