As music continues to evolve, we will continue to evolve with it. Axis Music Academy is now offering DJ lessons and music production courses taught by industry experts.
The curriculum will cover equipment setup, BPM, song structure, blending, beat matching, harmonic mixing and more. By the end of the program students will be able to mix music live, produce tracks at home, and have the foundation and capabilities to build on their newfound knowledge.
Students will need to bring a laptop computer with a pre-loaded DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) preferably Ableton, Serato, Pro Tools or Logic. DJ students will also need a controller. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or if you’d like more details and/or recommendations.
