Brighter Sound presents two five week Ableton Live studio courses at Band on the Wall. One-to one bespoke tuition for entry level and intermediate users of this amazingly versatile and accessible music production software in the great surroundings of the Band on the Wall recording studio. Tutor: DJ and producer, Mike Richardson.

Ableton Live is the music software package for composition, songwriting, recording, production, beat-making, remixing and live performance.

This course offers great value for money. It is completely bespoke – catering to your knowledge, experience and the kind of music you want to make. Sessions take place in the authentic professional working environment of the Band on the Wall Studio.

Whether you are completely new to the world of computer music, or are looking to take that next step towards professional output – these one-to-one sessions with Producer / DJ Mike Richardson, are an ideal opportunity to receive professional and personalised assistance, using Ableton Live.

“I feel like I have learned a lot from Mike. He is a very helpful and knowledgeable teacher who passes on his know-how very well. I feel like I have overcome some of the fears I had about Ableton now!”

Each session will respond to individual needs, but could for instance look at:

  • Working with single-hit and loop samples
  • Working with computer synthesisers
  • Working with midi controllers
  • Creating your own track from scratch
  • Recording live instruments to use with your productions
  • Sound processing, including EQ, Compression & FX
  • Arranging your track
  • Mixing and remixing
  • DJing with Ableton

Bring along your own laptop with your own material to work on or create something new on the equipment in the professional sound recording studio at Band on the Wall.

The last six years have been a busy time for Mike. Starting out on the internet radio station ‘Unity Radio’ in Manchester, he is now gigging all over the UK and overseas, along with releasing his own productions and remixes on a variety of labels; his last release – ‘Stubborn’ on the Sex Panda White label receiving rave reviews.

If you are a complete beginner and are interested in learning the basics of Ableton Live in a small group setting please see details of the group course we run HERE.

Each session is 1 to 1 and lasts 50 minutes.
