Learn Music Production in Ableton Live

With Tutor Josh Shirt

Ableton Live is a leading software program for music creation, music production, and music performance and a mainstay of most professional recording environments. Famously, Diplo and Timbaland use it to produce music.

Josh Shirt has 14 years experience with Ableton Live. He uses it to facilitate music creation and production as well as create homemade instruments and controllers; Ableton Live is used as the ‘brain’ for his laser drum kit.

Josh is a friendly, open-minded, and patient teacher who listens to his students’ interests and develops their passions.

Originally from the UK, Josh has had his own music blogged, played on BBC Radio, and used on numerous commercials.

‘On the surface, Ableton Live is a really inviting piece of software which is fun to use and learn, yet it has such depth of application. The interface is simple and intuitive but under the hood it has all the power you could need to make, perform and master great sounding music. In my opinion, it’s one of the best pieces of software ever made.’
