Logic Pro X Production | Los Angeles & Live Online (33% off)

Our Logic Pro X course is suitable for both beginners, as well as self-taught learners, wishing to fill in gaps and learn Logic properly in small classes at our Apple Authorized Training Provider, to compose, record and mix all genres of music.

Our lessons in Los Angeles cover all you need to know to start producing music, and set you on your way to producing at a high standard. Our superior roster of instructors are all industry professionals with years of experience making records, and include Grammy-winners and Apple-certified T3 trainers. They’ll show you how to produce their way. Total class time is 36 hours where you can ask a question and bounce off of your instructor and fellow learners exactly when you’re feeling inspired, or…confused! This is why some say that there is no substitute for music production courses in person. Learning how to use technical software should be FUN – not tedious!

Many learners these days prefer to use their own laptops on our courses for things like getting help customizing their set-up, and they have their project exactly as they left it in class to work on at home. So we made the course more affordable, but added a $75 supplement for learners who wish to hire an iMac with the latest version of Logic Pro X installed. Please ensure you book an iMac when you book your course if you need one. Controller keyboards, and headphones are provided for everyone if needed.

    Testimonials

    I wouldn't change a thing about this course. It was ten times better than I expected it to be. The instructor was incredibly informative and kept things fun. I've played with software for a couple of years and thought I got most of the basics down but I definitely was wrong. Great course! I would definitely recommend this course to anybody wanting to learn the production side of music. It was incredibly helpful and left me inspired to make tracks 24/7.

    Kristina Bialkowski

    I went from knowing pretty much nothing about Logic to knowing how to built loops, work with midi, mix, and actually be able to record the music I write and and arrange on the computer. I'm really excited because Logic Pro X has opened up a new world for me as a singer songwriter!

    Dawn Red Sun

    I am a lot better off than I was months ago blindly watching Youtube tutorials and not knowing what I was doing. The teacher was a great, very patient and understanding, with all skill levels in the room.

    Abraham Perrotta

    The small class size allowed the instructor time to give us individual attention/feedback. The teaching style was easily adjusted according to the levels in the class. As a very new producer, I never felt left behind. I never would have thought I could make this much progress in just 6 weeks!

    Andie Arbogast

    This class was great. I've been wanting to learn digital music production and was warned that Logic was one of the most complex and difficult to learn DAW. In only 6 days I think I've learned the program well enough to start producing my own tracks. Not only that but I've left the class with enough excitement to get busy and make some music with my new found knowledge.

    Paul Vachier

    It was very hands on. the teacher knew a vast amount about this topic and is very informative and clear. He has methods of utilizing teachings that enable us to relate to better understand in what circumstances these methods would be used for productions.

    Raymond Casarez

    This class was tough for me, as I'm a beginner (and am 48 with not a ton of technical or DAW experience). I wanted to immerse myself, so I could learn as much as possible, but much of the class was still a bit too advanced for me. Darren was fantastic, and I REALLY appreciated the offer to come back and stand in future classes. That makes me feel like I'll definitely get my moneys worth!

    William 'John' Bragg

    I came into the program with no idea how to work Logic, and after the intensive week, I worked out programming beats, using loops and samples…I feel like I can take my music to the next level now. Thanks 🙂

    Christy Thompson

    Great teacher who leaves no stone unturned! After Garnish, I feel that I have the tools to build a strong foundation and begin a career in the music industry.
