Connect to your audience and to your music.

Building a custom live shows allows you to build and connect with your audience, and opens up monetisation options through gigging and touring.

Live performance skills will also transform how you produce music: progressing from a programming workflow to a more tactile, real-time writing technique that allows you to create more intuitively and finish songs faster.

  1. Holistic Development: As you progress through the classes and live rehearsals, you’ll not only achieve mastery over the performance process, but also take your finished songs to the stage, ready for your first public shows. Working through Ableton Live as your core platform, you’ll explore connections with hardware, industry-standard stage equipment and real-world performance workflows. This comprehensive approach ensures a well-rounded skill set to hone your unique sound, style and stage presence.
  2. Personal Mentorship: throughout the class weeks are one-on-one rehearsal sessions where you can practice your songs live and receive personal guidance for refinement.
  3. Grand Finale – Final Performance Session: The course culminates in a graduation session, a celebratory showcase where each participant performs their stage-ready tracks. It’s not just a conclusion but a testament to your growth and creativity during the course.
