Get to know Ableton’s powerful Push tool in detail and enhance your music production skills on our six-week part-time Ableton Push course.
Held on campus at ICMP London, the course offers an in-depth understanding of Ableton’s Push instrument and how it can dramatically enhance your work. Over the six two-hour evening sessions you’ll work with Ableton-certified trainer and music producer Marcello Ruggiu, learning everything you need to know to transform your musical ideas into fully realised tracks.
You’ll cover the essentials of track production – from recording loops, editing samples and step sequencing automation to finger drumming and working in drum rack and melodic instrument views.
This course is recommended for those who have previously attended our Ableton Live part-time course. It ensures you continue building your Ableton skills and challenges you to make the most of this technology to produce tracks of professional quality.
