Course Overview

The technology revolution has completely altered the way that music is made, viewed, performed and experienced. The future of music is digital, and every performer today benefits from mastering the tech. The tools of the trade are practically unlimited, with constant updates and upgrades.

Of course, technology does not make the musician—it’s all about how you use it. At I Love Music Academy, we’ve employed a systematic approach with the perfect blend of analog and digital technology to develop an artist. We have combined three of our concise and high-impact courses to create our new DJ-Producer-Performer program.

In this comprehensive program, electronic music production and performance will be taught alongside professional DJing. Our successful ‘Play–Produce–Perform’ methodology will enable students to rise to any challenge, creating a new breed of DJs who will embody the ideal paradigm of creativity + skill + tech.
