  • How much is enrolment and what does it include?

    The enrolment fee is 1600 Euros. Depending on your location, you may have to pay additional tax. In most countries online lessons are not taxed.

    Once payment is completed we will schedule you in the next suitable spot. Payments can be returned in full if you decide to opt out before classes start.

    Enrolment includes your spot on the course, the full license of Ableton Live 11 Suite, and 4 month full subscription to Roland Cloud (Ultimate). These valuable software are included as part of the enrolment package and do not affect tuition fees. If you already have the software, you may gift the license codes to a friend.

  • What is the scholarship and how do I apply?

    Applicants who are underrepresented in music production or can demonstrate financial need are eligible to apply for full or partial assistance via our Scholarship Program. Individuals can apply for scholarships after acceptance into the academy.

  • What will I need to take part in this course?

    You will require an internet connection, a webcam and a computer that meets the minimum system requirements for the software.

    Please visit this link for info regarding Ableton Live 11.

    For Roland Cloud see the following - Mac OS 10.9 or Windows 7 SP1, and a 64-bit DAW or plug-in host that supports VST, AU or AAX instrument plug-ins.

    Both programs may have limited compatibility with Mac OS Big Sur.

  • What are the criteria that you are judging applications on?

    An invitation for enrolment onto the program is based on who we think will benefit most from the specific program we are offering, and who shows promise and potential for educational growth.

    Please note that to ensure the best learning experience we will be grouping successful applicants together in classes with similar skill sets. In your application, if you answer beyond your ability (in piano experience, for example) you may find that you are grouped incorrectly.

  • How do I apply?

    The application is a mix of written and video content that must be submitted through this form ↗. More details will be found on the application form.

  • What does the course consist of?

    Live online classes will be held once a week for a period of 12 weeks. Depending on the session, classes will be between 1.5 to 3 hours long.

    We are working on developing automated classes for 2022.

  • What if I can’t complete the course for unforeseen health or personal reasons?
