Intro to Ableton Live Pt. 2

Have you ever wanted to learn how to produce your own electronic music? Ableton Live is one of the most powerful applications for all aspects of digital audio production. Join Sonic Arts For All! on October 11th and 18th for an interactive workshop series, open to all skill levels, as we show you how to start making your own virtual synthesizers, drum machines, and samplers. Computers will be provided, but supplies are limited, so buy your ticket now!

This is a two part class that takes place on October 11th and 18th. Signing up here ensures you a spot in both sessions!




Sonic Arts For All (SAFA!) is a non-profit whose mission is to provide a fun, yet still rigorous, alternative to the traditional music classroom for the K-12 and special needs students of New York City, Puerto Rico, and beyond. We utilize technology as the key component of our curriculum, providing professional digital music and recording equipment for our students to use at all our workshops, as well as consultation to families on how to utilize the technology found in many homes, such as tablets and PCs, to create music.

Our curriculum combines “the fundamentals” - for example, music theory, ear training, and keyboard skills - with the creative innovations coming from the DJ and electronic music scene. SAFA! will bridge the gap between the popularity of electronic music and more traditional music pedagogy. Rather than learning to read music before you can make music, technology allows us to interact directly with sounds. Therefore, the heart of our program is hands on, open ended projects, where students develop a portfolio of their own pieces. In completing composition projects, students are allowed to follow whatever thread they find most exciting: maybe a pulsing beat, or an otherworldly soundscape.
