Turn your studio productions into a playable live show, ready to tour.

A great live set is all about connecting to your audience and growing your fanbase by giving them a show they’ll never forget. In this course you’ll develop a show that you love performing – one that’s deeply engaging for you, your audience and any other players involved.

Under the hood, a live show needs to be flexible enough to customise, scalable for different venue sizes, and with a setup bullet-proofed by fail-safes so the show goes on no matter what.


This course is for:

Producers and songwriters looking to take their productions to the stage. Or stage producers looking to understand how artists configure their songs and setups for live performance.

Successful applicants must have a good understanding of music production and Ableton Live.


This course covers:

Creative techniques and technical essentials, taught by Ableton Certified Trainers.

Deconstruct real sets being used by artists to perform, including solo and group setups.

Plan and build your show, converting studio productions into performable pieces, with final performances by all members in the group.

Delve deep into controllers to move fluidly through your sets.


Learning by doing:

You will learn by working completely hands-on, mentored by Ableton Certified Trainers on converting your songs and setup into a viable live show. You will have access to our studios filled with equipment: microphones, controllers, synthesisers, drum machines and hardware. Small group sizes (max 9 per group) provides a supportive space for trial-runs and experimentation.

Liveschool courses support both Live 10 and 11, so making the transition to 11 is seamless for all students and past graduates.

Liveschool COVID-19 Safe

For more info, you can request a detailed syllabus here or email our admissions team directly. 

Our Covid-safe plan is registered with the Australian, NSW Government and you can read about how our classes are running, FAQ’s and recent updates on this blog.



By the end of this program you will have a tour-ready, performable live show and the ability to add more songs / change the set-list as needed.


Perform Live is structured so you work hands-on with specific projects and techniques then apply them to your own performance set under supervision and assistance of our expert mentors. The course is 8 x 3 hour sessions, with the final sessions being a rehearsal performance for all in your class group.

What if my circumstances change and I can’t attend one or more sessions?

After booking your course you are responsible for attending all dates and we do not refund, nor accept any liability for your loss of course time. That’s the trade-off for the small class sizes. Alternatively, you are able to transfer your booking to another date or course if you contact us one month before the course begins. This gives us enough time to fairly try and fill the seat.

If you miss a class/es during your course we have three make-up options available to you, subject to availability:

  • Waiting list for a future session with an available seat. With a class size of 9 people, spare seats are rare, but if it becomes available you can sit this session for free.
  • 50% module booking. We offer a 50% re-sit discount to students wishing to re-take a complete module for further immersion. The 50% applies to complete modules regardless of how many sessions you retake, and for 2 or more sessions it is often more cost-effective to do this.
  • Private tuition session. Please contact us for dates, times and pricing.
