Logic X: Music Production for Everyone (Beginner/Mixed Level)

Course Description

The world of music production is often considered to be an exclusive club that is hard to access. This course provides an opportunity to study music production at beginner level with an experienced teacher. Do you sing or rap and want to write your own backing tracks? Have you got a song you want to record or some lyrics you want to share? This course will introduce you to a number of production techniques helping you to make music that you want to make in a supportive, inclusive environment.

Location: Online/Camden

Course Content

This course is a fun and inclusive introduction to the process of making and recording music using an Apple Mac computer and Logic Pro. It will include:

? MIDI sequencing and editing
? Apple Loops, audio editing, recording and sampling
? How to use sound processing techniques such as equalisers, reverbs, compression etc
