Music Production course reviews

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.

I have always been interested in music and decided to enrol on the music production diploma. The schedule really suited me as I could only study during the evening or on Saturday’s due to work commitments. My tutor was talented and very inspiring and I really enjoyed my time at London AMP. Would recommend!
