With the combination of digital music theory and technology skills, kids finish understanding how music is created and assembled, and know how to do it themselves! We aim for our students to be inspired and create something that is meaningful for them.

This is an online learning course taught live by an expert tutor who is fully DBS-checked. You will join a small group of other young learners online, working together and making lots of progress in fun and interactive sessions. All sessions are monitored and recorded for safety.

This course is also available in part-time formats.

NOTE: You will need to download and install the Ableton Live software ready for the course. This can be done by buying a license here or by downloading the trial software from the Ableton website.

We also strongly recommend that you purchase a keyboard for the course, the one we suggest is here – MacBook users will need an adaptor to plug the keyboard to the computer.
