All classes are taught through Livestream and recorded. Ask questions, collaborate, and meet other musicians from around the world in real-time.
Our extensive curriculum covers everything in class with exclusive downloads, templates, and secret tricks.
Before our deep dive into sound design, mixing & mastering our students go through elaborate training to understand what makes music beautiful.
“Going to Beat Lab Academy was one of the most important moves that I have made towards the end of my senior year in college. I’ve wanted to give what I love doing a shot, and this community, as well as the brilliance of the faculty, taught me more than I could ever dream of inside and outside of the classroom.”

For Level 1, you do not need to have any musical experience. Beginners welcome!
For Level 2, you’ll want to have a solid, foundational grasp using Ableton Live, and a basic understanding of Music Theory.
For Level 3, you’ll have Ableton and Music Theory already down, but just be looking to learn introduction to Mixing and Mastering.
Signing up for Level 4 is for those who want to take their tracks to the next level, brush up on some branding and social media, and entertainment law, and release their tracks in the best possible quality on Spotify, Apple Music, etcetera.
