The Music Production & DJ program is designed for those who are just starting their journey into sound. This three-month curriculum focuses on producing with either Ableton Live or Logic Pro, creative workflow, DJing, and more.

Collaborate with fellow students and staff in any of our killer studios during your included weekly studio hours. Refine your artist brand, network with the industry, and prepare yourself for success.
There’s a certain workflow and set of techniques you can follow to create consistent high-quality music. We get you producing at this level in order to have original material ready to perform that matches or exceeds everyone else’s tracks.
Learning to DJ is one of those skills that will help you in many different aspects, not just when you’re standing at the decks. We pair dj-ing and performance with learning music production in order for you to understand the many different aspects of music.
