How does it work

The lessons are conducted over Skype using the in built screen share and additional system audio sharing software so you can hear and see everything from my computer from the comfort of your own home wherever you are in the world. Each week there is a two hour class of which you shall follow progressively through the syllabus. Each week an assignment is given and in the following class I will open the assignment project to run through how you did and how to improve on your efforts.

Outside lesson time you will be able to keep in touch with me at all times to help you with your progress. I can answer any questions and help you with any problems you may be faced with during your course.

After the course you will know everything you need to get you on your way to becoming a professional electronic music producer.
