“I learned the basics of music production and the course has given me the confidence to produce and record my own music.”
The last six years have been a busy time for tutor Mike Richardson. Starting out on the internet radio station ‘Unity Radio’ in Manchester, he is now gigging all over the UK and overseas and releasing his own productions and remixes on a variety of labels; his last release – ‘Stubborn’ on the Sex Panda White label received rave reviews. Mike has been back in the studio over the past few months and is currently putting the final touches to his next EP which will be out very soon.
“Mike is a great teacher and extremely good at making the topics taught in the course interesting and bringing out the enthusiasm in us.”
Have a listen to LOOKING BACK by Mike Richardson & Howard Sessions feat KT Forrester (Lost My Dog Records) to whet your appetite.
