FAQ

The Beat Lab International Certification Program is for anyone who is interested in music production, anywhere in the world! We scheduled the classes in the mornings here in California so students from different time zones across the US and the rest of the world could participate. 

Whether it’s Music Production, Post Production, Recording, Engineering, Songwriting, or even Managing – through our virtual classroom and private lessons – we will help each artist find their way in the professional market.

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.

You should be proficient in English. If you are new to music production, you will learn many new terms. It is important to have English at a high level before start classes at Beat Lab.

You should have basic computer skills, including but not limited to: emailing, copying and pasting, downloading software, navigating your computer.

Our Beat Lab Certification Program covers the skills students need to become tomorrow’s super producers. All taught through the powerful, industry-leading music production and performance software, Ableton Live.

Each artist will experience their musical journey from beginner to advanced in an intimate, engaging virtual classroom setting twice a week. To maximize skill development, students will also meet bi-monthly via Zoom for private mentorship sessions with instructors.

As a student, you will follow our world-class curriculum to take the steps necessary to become a super producer and receive guidance developing your individual sound as an artist. You will also utilize instruments, plugins, effects, sound design, and mixing strategies to hone your craft. After polishing and practicing throughout the program, students will learn how to take their experience from Beat Lab and translate it into a career in the music industry.

Beat Lab Certification Program students will finish with a fully mixed and mastered 2-track EP. As members of the Beat Lab community, students and alumni receive help booking shows, live performance mentorship, production tools gathered throughout the program and beyond, and access to the Beat Lab Student Network.

Whether it’s music production, post-production, recording, engineering, songwriting, or even managing – we will help each artist find their way in the professional market.
