Our Approach to Digital Music Production

Lessons Should Be Fun!

We know that an interest in digital music production may be what first brings you into our school – but having fun is what keeps you coming back!

Students that are interested in going even deeper into digital music production can learn advanced techniques using Pro Tools, which is known as the industry standard software for digital audio workstations. Whether you are a beginner or already have experience in digital music production, Bob Thompson can help take your skills to the next level.

We Emphasize Healthy Technique

Healthy technique is critical to recording and music production. Our first priority is teaching strong fundamentals on your preferred DAW (GarageBand or ProTools).

*Note: These lessons are on a Zoom basis and designed to occur from the comfort of the student’s own home, with one notable exception: Students intending to use GarageBand on iOS (on their phone or tablet) will have their lessons in person at The Music Room.

We Care About Your Musical Interests

Regardless of ability or prior experience, our teachers take an individualized approach to each of our students – underpinned by detailed individual assessments, a personalized learning plan, and one-on-one guidance throughout your musical journey.
