  • 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.
