What do I need to bring?
You must have a laptop with Ableton Live installed and a pair of headphones. Triple check that you have your computer charger and headphones before you leave your house! You may also bring (and we encourage) midi controllers, audio interfaces, guitars, keyboards, flutes, kazoos, bagpipes, or any other instruments you need to interface with Ableton Live!
What are some optional items that will make my experience even better?
- A Usb Midi Controller so you can learn Ableton mapping and live performance techniques.
- An Audio Interface will yield better sound quality that your computer’s audio output, it will also allow you to record instruments and sources with a microphone.
- A Headphone Splitter will allow you to play your music for others so you can get feedback and pointers on your composition and mix.
- A little Stereo Bluetooth Speaker will allow you to check your mix while being away from your studio.
Will I get one on one time with the Instructors?
Yes! Each evening, there is a collective work time where the instructors walk around and answer your questions and give you personalized tips according to what you’re trying to accomplish. No question is a bad one, every questions is valid.
Lodging? Where can I stay?
Temple Nightclub is conveniently located in Downtown Denver conveniently located within walking distance of many hotels, Airbnbs and other lodging options. We also encourage students to room together and save $$$! We are looking into student discounts for a nearby hotel. Stay tuned for announcements. If you have signed up and we can secure a deal, you will be notified via email!
What is the cost of the Academy? What is included?
$500 covers your Academy tuition, classes, collective work time, breakfast, pretty much everything that comes with the school. You will need to secure your own lodging, and you can check the facebook event page to see who else is staying where and team up.
Yes this is an investment, however this could be the turning point in your career. There are “Production schools” and colleges that charge 100x this and offer nothing close to the level of education, personal engagement, and leadership we can offer you in only 4 days!
