Teachers, not lecturers

We are all musicians, DJs, producers, we like to teach and share their passion (and the tricks we have learnt over the years) with like-minded individuals.

We are not interested in lecturing people and following rule-books, we are here to teach and learn from each other, and help you find your sound along the way.

And with classes limited to only 6 participants you are guaranteed to receive the attention you deserve for the duration of the course.

Course Outcome

The course is focused on modern production techniques and doesn't include the outdated sections that are still taught in certain schools, so we can cover a lot of ground in just a couple of days.

By the end of the course you will have a real understanding of how Logic is used by top producers around the world to create some of the biggest hits of the year, and have the essential knowledge to continue working with Logic to start your own career in music.


  • This course has given me the skills I needed to see my productions through from beginning to end.

    Aaron J Pillette

  • It's like I never really understood what to do with effects. Everything makes sense now.

    Michel Radzi

  • It's amazing when you're shown the way... It's not really about the fancy toys, it changes how you listen to sound.

    Shaun Gordon

  • I thought I knew what EQ does and how to use it… I was wrong. I’d recommend this course to anyone.
