The course will cover the basics in Ableton Live, which will enable the learner to produce their own music using the software. Subjects covered including using virtual instruments’ and audio tracks.
To engage the learner and give an insight into music production using Ableton Live. To create an atmosphere in the session that is inclusive and supportive to the needs of the learner.
The initial sessions will cover how to use the software to produce music. This will start with producing a backing/rhythm track using virtual instruments and samples, then moving on to adding harmonic and melodic elements to the production. The sessions will also cover adding effects to the parts to enhance the production.
The sessions will also breakdown how current releases have been produced using software, which we will breakdown in demonstrations in class.
The course will cover how to use the software in a variety of different ways; one such way will be to use Ableton as a DJ tool. The learners will develop their own skills to enable them to create their own DJ sets within the software.
Feedback will be given throughout the course using one-to-one tutorials and observations to highlight how the learner is progressing.
