Rachel explains the fundamentals of Ableton in an entertaining style and shares her unique approach to music production. After this course you’ll feel encouraged and inspired to get music making!” Simon Rackman


"This course was so much fun, it didn’t really feel like learning. Rachel and Mary are super personable and likeable but still there was so much we didn’t know! The cool thing is that you can go back to certain topics and go over them again if you’ve forgotten something, so you can really learn as fast or as slowly as you want to." HANNIE
