Designed for the beginner songwriter/producer to take them from fiddling around in Garage Band to producing and writing professional sounding songs in popular genres of music using Logic Pro X. More experienced producers also take this program to fill in gaps in workflow. The total course length is 120 hours, and is a combination of hands-on learning and group mentoring. By the end of the course, leaners have completed their masterpiece to show off. Also included is six hours of one-to-one mentoring on your music with a producer/engineer of your choice from our superior roster, which include Apple T3-certified instructors.
Learn Logic Pro X, and all the add-ons included in this incredibly powerful DAW from the ground up, leaving no stone unturned, ensuring you know how to use the tools included effectively and efficiently to produce the music at the quality you are used to hearing by your favorite artists.
Strategically placed mentoring sessions ensure you get time to work on your music, which will not only help you assimilate the content but, with hard work, you’ll come out at the end with your very own EP.
Working in groups of no more than eight, this course will fast-track you to writing and producing the music you love with like-minded instructors and fellow learners in a relaxed setting, organically laying the foundations for co-writing opportunities in the future. Learning to write and produce hit-sounding records should be fun and not frustrating, and we’ve been helping people to do just that around the world since 2011.
VIP Short Course Pass means that you can add any of our 36-hour courses (Ableton, DJ, Mixing…) for you or a friend to take at a later date. You can even choose NYC, Miami, LA, San Francisco, Hong Kong or London to take the class. As long as the course you choose exists and is running in the location, you get a spot!
Thanks to our exclusive licensing partnerships, we have assembled a range of specialized assets: synthesizers, effects, and samples for Garnish Academy and Producer Program students. These instruments and sounds allow us to teach producers, side by side, using the same sets of expanded resources. Our constantly evolving license-partners and content producers add thousands of dollars to the value of these courses. Many of these products are yours to keep. Others are free to use while you learn and are then eligible for exclusive upgrades at a fraction of their regular price.
We have our very own boutique sample label Lazerdisk Sound. Garnish students get all of our packs (mostly written and produced by Garnish instructors) for free, and an exclusive pack just for Garnish students not sold on the site! It’s recorded individual keys from Mark Ronson’s Mellotron M4000D, which our label chief Zack Johnson meticulously recorded in Mark’s studio in Hollywood. Thank you Zack and Mark!
Many learners these days prefer to use their own laptops on our courses for things like getting help customizing their set-up, and they have their project exactly as they left it in class to work on at home. So we made the course more affordable, but added a $100 supplement for learners who wish to hire an iMac loaded with software. Please ensure you book an iMac when you book your course if you need one. Controller keyboards, and headphones are provided for everyone.
120 Hours | In-Person: $3999 | Online Remote Attendance: $2639
