Even at early stages, students will learn everything they need to know, to get them started with computer music composition right away. This makes this course perfect for beginners, since we start from the beginning, but also challenging for the experienced learners who want an in-depth knowledge.

Through a theoretical and practical framework, students will be taught various music production techniques and in combination with the advanced DAW software skills that they will develop during the course, they will be able to incorporate these skills into creating their own musical compositions, regardless of the genre of music that they are interested in.

This knowledge will be further reinforced by introductory music theory / harmony lessons, as well as guidance on how our students can build their musical structure and arrangement, to create an effective composition.
