Electronic Music Production

Electronic Music Production Course | Miami

If you want to take the next step to achieving your goals as an electronic music producer, our Electronic Music Production course is for you! With no more than 8 students per class, and 36 hours of class time, you will have the freedom to ask our instructors the questions you need answering while learning their techniques and tricks. This course will help you obtain the sounds from your head and transform them into your DAW.

Prerequisite: This is an intermediate to advanced course so learners must have a good understanding of their DAW. We encourage less experienced learners to attend one of our DAW courses first. With an added supplement of $75, students may use our iMac workstations that are provided in class if you do not own the listed software in the class curriculum overview. Controller keyboards, headphones and audio interfaces are always provided for everyone when needed.

If you miss a class, or wish to comeback and repeat the course, you may do so free of charge. Our door is always open to former learners!

    Testimonials

    Both instructors were extremely knowledgeable, and quickly adapted to the areas which I needed the most work. There's also no substitute for being face to face with an instructor, to immediately address any logjams in the workflow.

    CJ DeLeo

    The course throughly covers the fundamentals of synthesis and has helped me understand concepts that go beyond the everyday Youtube tutorial. The course has made Youtube tutorials and other concepts of sound design easily understood.

    Daniel Tran

    The EMP course is a good time and super informative. I've been writing and producing music for the past year in Logic. There was so much I wanted to transcribe from my mind to my DAW, I just didn't fully know how. Fortunately, the EMP course changed that in just a few short weeks. Very exciting. Not to mention the Garnish LA folks are super cool.

    Patricia Seely

    If you're looking for in-depth knowledge about electronic music and how to create sounds using 3rd party software through Ableton or Logic then this course will definitely help you! Beginners can follow along but if you're a more advanced producer, then this will definitely show you more advanced techniques to apply to your productions! Extremely happy I found and attended this course!

    DJ WIED

    If you are trying to establish connections with local artists that have made a name for themselves in LA (the instructors) than this is a great program to join. You get to talk with them about their personal experiences and get a lot of really good inside tips about production from a professional point of view. Highly recommended not just to learn but to make industry connections.

    Zach Klein

    Garnish instructors do a great job at being in depth and detailed with everything so that no question or misunderstanding is left unsolved.

    • Best DJ Mixers on the Market Today

      The modern technology that goes into DJ mixers these days is a far cry from my original Made 2 Fade two channel mixer. This piece of crap was so prehistoric that it didn’t even feature any EQs, but I guess that didn’t matter as my mixing in those days sounded like someone throwing a piano down a flight of stairs!...

    • Great Underground Parties in Los Angeles

      Bottle service and bling is not always at the top of everyone’s agenda on a night out in Los Angeles. I mean, yes, it’s nice to see Leonardo Di Caprio sat in a booth with a bevvy of Brazilian models, but that alone is not exactly going to get the party rocking!...

    • The Burn and the Return

      Everything on the playa is really just a build up to ‘The Big Burn’ and in 2014 three different monuments received a right royal toasting. First to go up in flames was The Embrace, which due to an alarm clock 'malfunction' we mistakenly slept straight through. Hey, who burns things at 7am in the morning? Where's the humanity?! ...

    • What Is Burning Man?

      Who are we, some may say, to answer the question what is Burning Man? After all, as virgin ‘Burners’ one veteran barely give us the time of day, let alone the chance to answer such a deep and meaningful question. Is there snobbery from older burners to the new school? Maybe a touch, but the majority of veteran campaigners greet newbies with a smile, not a sneer....

    • What To Expect At Burning Man

      The Burning Man festival really is a truly astounding feast for the senses. Not only does it offer up a wide range of musical styles playing almost 24 hours a day, it also some of the most amazing art installations on the planet. Add to this a selection of courses, discussions and  a seemingly bottomless well free bars; it’s safe to say there is never a dull moment on the playa....

    • What You Need At Burning Man

      So it has come to pass that a few of us at the Garnish Music Production School will be going on a little summer holiday; and when we say little, we mean the BURNING MAN festival! That’s right folks, it’s almost time for us to lose our virginity and make the pilgrimage into the desert to spend seven days with a fantastic array of naked hippies, flower power freaks and sparkle ponies....
