Music Production course reviews

I started a music tech course at another college but left early to join London AMP. I learnt more in a few weeks here than I did in 3 months at my previous college so it was a great decision. The entire course was perfect for what I was looking to learn especially the sound design, synthesis, mixing and mastering topics. Would highly recommend and a big thanks to my tutor Jay for all his help!

Ollie, Music Technology Diploma

I had a limited knowledge of music production technology and wanted to fast track my learning. The course content was tailored to suit the type of music that interested me and my tutors were really patient and understanding. I think the course offers great value for money and would highly recommend.

I’ve DJ’ed a while I wanted to take the step into producing my own music. The course taught me how to listen to music in a different way and although my main musical interest is electronic music I found the engineering element of the course fascinating. Lessons were tailored to fit my work rota which was great. Thanks Colin.
