I am a seasoned Logic Pro user and this course has been helping me make the transition to Ableton.

Really great classes and useful knowledge that not only focus on technical expertise but as well on music grips. Amazing people, and good vibes! After each lesson, I am full of energy and motivation to create music. Totally recommend RAMP!

A great introduction into music production with the beginner course I attended. I felt like all the basics were covered and the course gave me a great head-start into the world of music production. It's been a lot of fun!
