This music production online course has been developed by ICMP tutor Marcello Ruggiu – a fully qualified Ableton Certified Trainer. Marcello has been making electronic music since he was a teenager in his bedroom with his Yamaha sequencer, drum kit and computer. He’s managed and operated recording studios in both the UK and Italy across his esteemed career.


Marcello is an expert at using Ableton Live in his electronic music production both at home and in the club, where he performs under the name ‘Amousement’. He runs regular CRUX audio/visual nights across London and has recently published an Ableton guidebook sharing the tips, tricks and expertise he’s gained over the past decade as an Ableton trainer.


There are no specific course entry requirements, as this course has been especially designed for beginners with no previous experience using Ableton Live. You’ll need to have an Ableton Live subscription, though, and the platform installed on your own computer in order to complete this course.
