At Liveschool we create events that connect emerging music makers with the most forward-thinking artists, producers and industry leaders.

INPUT is the event series that's open to our students and the public. Some are conferences combining industry and artist presentations, others are masterclasses on specific aspects of music making.

OUTPUT is the performance, playback and networking session for our graduates.

We also run occasional Workshops, Masterclasses and Community Events with Ableton Live User Groups and around Australia, and one-off initiatives with partners such as SoundCloud, Beatport, Ableton and more.
