When and where does the course happen?
Classes are usually on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings at 6.30, and are scheduled according to demand.
You will need to bring your own Mac or PC laptop, charger and headphones, with at least a Demo version of Ableton Live installed. We can provide these items in-class if you give us 24 hours notice, and we can hire them to you for the duration of the course for an additional fee.
A basic understanding of the fundamentals of Ableton Live use is highly recommended for this course. If you are a little rusty on Live skills, you may like to book a 1-on-1 lesson with us to scrub up your skills.
