Music Production Courses

Course leaders: Craig Tutton and Andrew Wright

Berkshire Maestros’ Music Production Courses are held three times every year. Each course covers a different aspect of the music production process, including using MIDI, recording, mixing and much more! The courses are led by professional tutors with industry experience. Courses usually last two or three days and are held at weekends or during holiday periods to make them accessible to students.

The courses are aimed at anyone who has an interest in learning more about producing music – attendees do not need to be able to play an instrument. If they have a passion for music and are keen to find out more about music technology or producing then they will enjoy this course.

Working at their own pace and level of understanding, students will be given help and advice from highly experienced leaders to assist in using the software effectively. Students will develop skills in composing, arranging, recording, mixing and mastering music and will be able to take home their work upon completion.

Students wishing to attend all three courses during 2018-19 may benefit from a special discounted price if they sign up now – please see details below. Whilst students will get the maximum benefit from attending all three courses, they are not interdependent and each can be booked and attended separately.
