The School’s expert trainers engage and inspire the students through carefully constructed and interactive project-based learning that is delivered in practical terms, based on the needs of students and designed in conjunction with interested participants from our professional network of sound designers, composers, and record labels. Our short courses are conducted in groups of 9 students or less and run for a total of 12 or 18 hours across 4 or 6 weeks to ensure a thorough and intensive exploration of the content vital to each subject area.

The School of Synthesis vision is to be recognized as one of the most innovative music training providers in Australia. We do not follow the national curriculum for accreditation. Instead we work at the forefront of the music education industry to deliver the most current, world’s-best-practice techniques while maintaining a fun, interactive environment.  

The School of Synthesis Alive with Ableton Live course is suitable for most people with an interest in music production. Designed by Ableton Certified Trainers and respected Australian music producers Mike Callander and Tristan Malloch, it is the perfect place to start if you're new to music production, but depending on the experience of our students we can also cover more advanced techniques. We also offer an Advanced Ableton Live course with more of a focus on advanced production techniques and Ableton’s Push controller. Please contact the school if you have any specific needs or requirements.
