Music Production through your instrument

Already play an instrument (solo or as part of a group) and want to expand your skills / broaden your horizons? Our music production school acts as a great hub for bands / artists already active as musicians wanting to take control of their own productions and level up their technical abilities. 

Plug in / mic up and see how a little practical knowledge and studio fieldcraft can change your approach to your art, enhance expression and give confidence. Through practice of reflection, critique and discussion you’ll improve your critical listening abilities and group communication, feeding back into the creative process full circle.

Amsterdam Music Production School

Manipulation of the sound - audio

Don’t play an instrument? Not into music? No problem! See how sound and how we manipulate it is integral to many sectors outside of the music industry, from radio and film to spoken word and theater. You’ll see how audio technology has developed over the last century and that common tools / techniques straddle boundaries of genre and medium, to deliver the message and at the end of the day – enhance the experience for the listener / end consumer.

In our Music Production School you will be using a vast array of technology – learn how we can capture / manipulate sounds, and apply a near endless array of both creative and corrective processing to affect the result. You’ll see the fluidity of the roles of the artist, technician and producer in a space that is a training ground for all 3 disciplines – and gain an insight into the development of the approach to structure, form, style and instrumentation – via all the technical steps along the way.

And if you want to create your own piece of music but don’t know how? No problem – you’ll leave the course with your own composition, having been involved in every step of the way.
