Academy:Challenge is a ten week programme designed to take you out of your comfort zone, and to widen your ability as a music producer.
In this course, you’ll be set a series of intense and specific creative challenges within different sub-genres of House music. From making intricate minimal deep-tech drums, to writing complex progressive melodies, to learning how to collaborate with a new studio partner on an entirely new track.
Every week, your lessons will be sent to you to watch in your own time, and your challenge will also be revealed. You’ll then log-into a live weekly A&R session with your fellow students, playing your work to the tutors and to the group. With only ten hand-selected students per class, you’ll form new creative connections with likeminded House music artists.
The programme ends on you being paired up with a new production partner, working on a brand new collaboration, and submitting it to the Toolroom A&R team for consideration.
