  • "Making music is both art and science. The art being the music you make and the science being the technology or tools you are using. Our program was designed to help people find their unique voice as an artist by understanding how to use Ableton Live to its full potential. I believe anyone can make music if they have the passion for it and they are willing to learn the craft."
