Dance Music Production:
This short programme is an ideal option for home studio owners, budding DJ Producers and people just driven by music. It provides a concise and intensive overview of producing dance music, from learning to make beats, to the full writing and mixdown process. Each person will work towards creating and mixing a track with the ideas, samples and music that have inspired them. This forms the basis for teaching each person about the equipment and what is relevant to them, be it working hip hop samples into a track or programming virtual drum machines. These are informal and relaxed working sessions where time is taken out at regular intervals to explain each stage in the construction of a track, demonstrating the techniques for producing dance music, whatever the style.

Weekend DJ Taster:
This beginner DJ course requires no previous mixing ability. The aim of the day is getting started on the decks and learning effective mixing techniques. The programme is for entry level DJs seeking to learn key skills and/or polish up existing skills. Students learn with Stanton turntables housed alongside Pioneer CDJ1000 units. A selection of effects units and samplers are also on hand to encourage the creative manipulation of sound.

Ableton Live:
With an ever increasing demand from people to learn Ableton Live - the biggest development in production/DJ technology in years - we created a pair of one stop weekend crash course built to meet the growing creative ideas of today's music producers, performers and DJs. Our Ableton Live training will show you how this revolutionary programme is designed for making original music, just like any other computer sequencer package, but is capable of so much more... Learn Ableton Live to remix a track to your taste using its intuitive features, or create mixes of your music on the fly because it syncs up MIDI and audio automatically, in real time!

Dance Music Business:
The Dance Music Business Course at Manchester Midi School was set up to offer a clear behind the scenes view of how the wheels and cogs of the music business turn - steering the participants in the right direction whatever their personal aims might be. This personally tailored Music Business Course, running over two sessions, gives practical and detailed advice on how to get started in the music business and how to proceed with a variety of projects, from running a club night, all the way through to understanding how to set up a record label, highlighting successes and warning of some pitfalls that may lay ahead.
