I really felt I was back in college, but with a more nice and chilled back lecturer, who got me to the roots of Electronic Music Making - The fun & Joy in creating music. Thank you is never enough!

Uday James

Music teacher, Bangalore, India

Because Music Technology is such a vast curricular area and, I would argue, and art form of its own, teaching it can feel a bit like the blind leading the blind - but in this house, everything was clearly broken down, thoughtfully paced and highly enjoyable. Thanks very much!

Lewis Anderson

Secondary Music Teacher, King George V International School, Hong Kong

The electronic music workshops hit the core of music class: experimenting with sounds and applying theoretical knowledge into hands-on music making. At every moment we were busy testing, sampling, tweaking, experimenting… 

Matt Dawson

Music Teacher, International School of Monaco

I highly recommend this workshop for any school that is looking to embed/expand the use of Electronic Music in their curriculum.
