Call-out to music lovers ready to delve into the magical universe of Ableton Live! If you’re keen to learn and identify as a woman*, we’d love to meet you. Over 8 weeks, we’ll provide everything you need to get started with Ableton Live: a version of the software, step-by-step learning, and mentorship. The course will give you the foundation to use the software for whatever you’re interested in: producing your own tracks, playing live, recording… or something you haven’t even considered yet!
*Including transgender, gender-fluid, non-binary, and agender.
It’s all free and you don’t need any prior experience with making music, just enthusiasm 🙂 If you don’t have your own laptop + headphones, let us know and we’ll find a solution. We’ll be available between sessions and after the course to answer questions and keep you on track.
There are 15 places available on each course and all sessions will run from 19:00 – 21:00.
