Ableton Live

Ableton Live Production Course | New York or Live Online

If you want to make the quality music you love but are bewildered by all the books and online tutorials around, our Ableton Live course is a perfect introduction to music production. Taken from our Ableton Producer Program, our shorter Ableton Production Course covers 36 hours of music production classes, where learners have the chance to immerse themselves in the wonderful world of this revolutionary music production software, and create something to be proud of, in-person in New York, or LIVE online.

“I needed to brush up on something, so I called Garnish, as they have the best instructors” – Jamie Jones

Ableton has changed how producers make and perform music; the software offers an amazing ‘jamming’ tool to evolve ideas ‘on-the-fly’, with its easy-to-use template, making learning it suitable for beginners. Our Ableton Production Course is also great for those that are already using Ableton, but would like to fill in gaps and expand their skills though the help of professional tutoring.

• Shake hands with Ableton
• How to Create with MIDI & Audio
• Live Performance & DJing

• Composing with Virtual Instruments & MIDI Tracks
• Ableton Live Suite
• Advanced Techniques and Sound Art

Our Ableton instructors are seasoned experts in the realm of music production, offering you exclusive access to their wealth of knowledge and professional insights. They stand ready to address any questions you have, providing in-person guidance that adds unparalleled value to your learning experience. Consider the significance of this personalized approach, compared to alternative methods of learning, and discover qualities that distinguish us.

If you can’t make a lesson, we will give you the option to catch up the same class on a future cycle, and normally your first choice cycle. All of our courses come with additional reading written by our expert course developers for you to refer to after your course, keeping your momentum going.

Many learners these days prefer to use their own laptops on our courses for things like getting help customizing their set-up, and they have their project exactly as they left it in class to work on at home. So we made the course more affordable, but added a $75 supplement for learners who wish to hire an iMac loaded with software. Please ensure you book an iMac when you book your course if you need one. Controller keyboards, and headphones are provided for everyone if needed. All of our students qualify for a 40% EDU discount on Ableton software, so once you have enrolled, you can purchase Ableton here, then ask us how you get your discount.

Our Testimonials

I found the course very useful at least for me as I didn't have previous experience with Ableton. The instructor was always very helpful and attentive to solve and answer any question.

Luis Miranda

Everything was great. Can't think of anything I would change. The instructor is knowledgeable and personable. His expertise and time is much appreciated. Thank you!

Mike DeMille

The course is very friendly and engaging. Any and all questions will be asked with no hesitation or frustration, and it helps everyone else in the class that might have the same question in mind.

Ryan Conway

I would highly recommend Garnish because besides providing the technical aspects of the course material, the teachers are very knowledgeable about not only Ableton but music production in general which is a huge help. Garnish provides a great environment for music producers from all walks of life.

Terry Pham

Its a great school . I didn't know if I wanted to be more interested in music production and EDM but after Ableton I am totally in and I want to take more classes. Either you are a beginner or know something about Ableton, instructors will explain you very well.

Maria Luisa

It's much easier to learn from an experienced instructor rather than Youtube because I am able to ask questions and know why things work instead of just following a video.

Henry Hang (Zankr)

It was a lot better than watching youtube or reading about Ableton. The classes were helpful and it was nice to be around people with a similar mindset for networking etc.

Emma Henry

I took this course to build a stable foundation in Ableton. What I got was not only a foundation but and incredible amount of knowledge that surpassed my expectations. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to take that next progression from DJ'n to producing. I now have the full confidence to open up Ableton and make a full blown production from scratch. I have Garnish and their awesome teachers to thank for that!

Corey Aguilar

This course helped me become a lot more confident in my ability within Ableton. I learnt a lot of tips and tricks, that even friends who are successful in the industry didn't know about. Every lesson was packed with useful knowledge and I never felt stupid asking ANY questions. I came to this course with very little knowledge of Ableton and had no recording/production knowledge. I am very happy with the level I am at for taking such a short course. 5 stars!

Vanessa Jadesa

Great introduction to Ableton and music production. The course gave me the confidence, knowledge, and inspiration that I needed to get cracking in my home studio. It made me realize how creative I can be, and how much potential I have. I am very grateful for this experience, and the teachers were very cool and patient. I plan to take follow-up courses in the future as I felt very comfortable at Garnish.

DJ Rhiannon

The instructor had a way of explaining things that helped drive things home and really stick for me. He almost felt like a peer rather than a teacher and to be able to ask "dumb" questions and receive a genuine response was great. I can tell there's a real passion for teaching these programs here, and it's not just to get our money.
