Music production and technology courses

music production equipment Music production courses at City Lit are ideal for anyone who wants to start making their musical ideas a reality. Our courses also offer a chance for experienced producers and music makers to take their projects to a new level of professionalism.

A fully-equipped, industry-standard music technology suite allows you to work week-by-week at your own workstation, building up and honing musical projects while being guided by experienced tutors who are experts in their field.

Whatever your preferred style of music, whichever (if any) instrument you play, and whatever your level or experience, we have evening, daytime and weekend music production courses; all aimed at teaching you exciting ways to use the latest technology to help you compose, record and perform music.

The core of our offer is training at beginner and advanced levels in music software like Logic, Cubase, Ableton Live and ProTools; optionally followed by our Advanced Mixing and Production Techniques course. These classes will teach you how to record and mix music that sounds just as good as that coming out of professional studios.

For those just starting out we recommend our courses 'Make your own beats and backing tracks' and 'Vocal recording techniques', which provide a fun and practical route into the world of music production and recording.

If you're interested in pushing the envelope of sound creation we have our three-module Sonic Arts course, which comprises training in Max/MSP, an introduction to the practices and techniques available to sonic artists, and a course in experimental composition.

Finally, our goal-oriented workshops such as 'Advanced Beatmaking' provide expert training in specific areas of production and music-making.

Quotes from our learners:

"The course covers all I needed to know in order to create my music - and some extra useful tips on equipment choice."

"The tutor knows her subject inside out and is patient and helpful. I've learnt more (about music production) in 10 weeks than I would have in 6 months using a book."
