Get started with Music Making via these free lessons


During the live masterclasses, we'll be going through a LOT in relation to music-making in Ableton Live.


While it's not mandatory, I recommend getting a little familiar with Ableton Live and music-making with these free lessons I've put together in the link below.

There are about 4 modules that walk you through the absolute basics, in an easy-to-grasp manner. Gobble up as much as you can before the masterclass commences.


While all of this and much more will be covered during the Live Masterclass, going through these lessons will give a gentle push to your learning curve. And if you have any doubts or questions along the way, fire away in the comment section and we'll have a discussion!
