Ableton Live Music Production Course

If you want to make good 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. Our Ableton Class 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, where performing and producing meet.

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.

Our Ableton instructors are experts when it comes to all things music production, and you will have exclusive access to their advice and professional tips. They will be on hand to answer any queries that you have, when you have them in person. Take a second to realize how valuable that is over trying to learn another way. Ableton is the same on both PC and Mac, so no matter what hardware you use, our course will be relevant to your system at home.

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.

    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.
