Adaptation of the course due to Covid-19

We plan to give this course as usual on site in the classroom. Depending on what the recommendations look like at the start of the course, or during the course, it may, however, be given as a distance class instead. In that case, the course will have the same structure as if it had been given in a classroom, with lessons on the same day and time, but instead of being seen physically, you will meet in a digital classroom.


Good computer-knowledge is a plus. Need to have some previous experience of digital music production, doesn’t need to be very advanced, just the basics.


Having done the course "Digital Music Production Beginner" or having equivalent knowledge is required.


At the end of this course, you will go further in how to use your preferred DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) in order to complete your music productions at a good level. This includes more development of the basic knowledge of recording, editing, and designing music, including mixing and mastering; together with everything you need to create your tracks from start to finish.

You will be able to deepen your own work and increase your inspiration to create music in different ways and genres, shaping your own personal sound.
