About the course
Take your introductory skills to the next level
If you've been producing for a little while and feel like you'd like to take your production to the next level, then this is the perfect opportunity!

In this course, you will be taught by the incredibly experience instructor and Ableton Certified Trainer, Mel Uye Parker. In Mel's capable hands you will be taken through some of the more intricate tools of Ableton to help convert what is a simple beat to something with more complexity, movement and feeling.

We have designed this online course to be undertaken across four Thursdays, starting May 21st and ending on the 11th of June, with 3 hour sessions on each of the four days giving you 12 hours teaching time in total. As our students often join across multiple time-zones, all sessions will be recorded for our students to go through in their own time if any part of the course is missed.

The course will be facilitated by the friendly MPW team who will ensure that you are learning in an encouraging, supportive and positive environment.

We have limited places to join this course so please get in early so you don't miss out!
