Music Production Courses

Music production is a different ball game to DJing and is much more in depth, and in turn more rewarding when you finally make that tune that was created wholly and solely by you! Our tutor offers knowledge and proven practices in use of Abelton, Logic, Native Instruments and a variety of third party plug ins to help you get to where you want to be in your own time.

Student Reviews

“When arrived for my first lesson I was nervous as hell but Jay’s calm and cool nature made me feel welcome and at ease within minutes. He has taught me everything from scratch. From beat matching to how to arrange all my tracks so they flow effortlessly in a mix. But above all, he makes the lesson fun, which in turn made it so easy to learn. This fella has a wealth of knowledge and I’m glad I’ve been fortunate enough to meet him!”

Luke Williams

DJ / Brisbane

“Highly recommend lessons from one of Brisbane’s best local djs. Jay was very keen to get you started from the moment we discussed lessons. From beat matching, music theory, playlists, Jay covers it all. Every lesson you would learn more and receive great constructive feedback.”

Jason Whyte

DJ / Brisbane

“I had been producing for a couple of years before I met Dave Brennan. My knowledge was very little but I had an understanding to a degree of Ableton. I thought I knew all there was to Ableton but when I met Dave he showed me so many things that I didn’t know I could do. He kept me on my toes and made me feel motivated more as I was starting to lose it. HIs teaching methods and his knowledge is brilliant.”

Kris Diahann

Producer / DJ / Brisbane

“Dave has been a fantastic inspiration in my early stages of producing. From being a complete Ableton beginner he helped me start from the basics of the programme right up to turning my ideas directly into music that I love. He is a great tutor with patience and that’s what you need in this business. He’s a pleasure to work with.”
