Jordan Tobias

I’ve just completed the final module of the SOS Complete Course, and as an aspiring music producer, this is the best possible investment that I could have made. Rather than spending money on fancy plugins or equipment, I would advise anyone wanting to learn about music production to take these courses first. The school methodically covers every facet in detail that you just can’t find anywhere else, and all classes are run by teachers that are working in the industry and have their fingers on the pulse.

Otto Burney

Before enrolling on the course, I was a self taught instrumentalist with the desire to throw myself into all aspects of music production. The Complete Program at the School of Synthesis was exactly what I was looking for and more! I learned far more than I thought I would in such a short space of time and its been an absolute pleasure being taught by experts in their field. Special thanks to Shaun and Davide who vastly improved my weakest areas (production, theory and arrangement) and Leroy for a Maschine Masterclass . If you’re looking for a comprehensive insight into music production I highly recommend the complete programme, I feel like I’ve learned the equivalent of 2 years self study in 3 months. Thank you.

Bryson Sandapa

Prior to beginning the ‘SOS Complete Program’ I had 3 months of music making under my belt. After completing the Complete Program my competence exponentially increased to the point that when I visit other studios I’m able to sit there and know exactly what they are doing and why. I went from not knowing what piano scales were to making and playing my own piano compositions thanks to Shaun Keyt at the Modern Music Theory and Arrangement course. Synthesizer? What’s that? I had no clue until Davide Carbone at Sound Design brought me up to speed, now throw me any synth and I’ll be able to work my way around it. Davide was also able to clear the mental clouds mixing and mastering can bring, especially when trying to learn on YouTube. 6 sessions of the Production Masterclass would probably calculate to equal 2 years of YouTube vids. Lastly James Hewsons knowledge with Logic Pro X was beyond helpful, instead of 6 hours in the studio I can now do 3 and still get the same amount of work done; simply because I know the capabilities of all the tools in Logic and where to find them, plus all the shortcuts I now know. I think the ‘SOS Complete Program’ is a must for all aspiring producers who want to learn the ins and outs of every aspect producing has to offer.

I found School of Synthesis online and enroled in the Complete Program. Not only were the classes well structured, but so was the whole program. I met great people with different levels of experience along the way and feel as if anyone could take away something from these courses regardless if you’re a beginner or someone who’s been making music most their lives. Most importantly Mike Callander, Shuan Keyt, Davide Carbone and Matt Ridgeway made it a fun environment for everyone to learn, it just didn’t feel like “school” and that was a huge plus! Overall I’m very happy with the program and been given some great advice and feedback along the way. I can recommend not only the program but any courses from School of Synthesis! I came in with no musical background and knew nothing about sound design or mixing and mastering. I also wrote my first 3 experimental tracks during my time at the school, feel free to check it out on my soundcloud.

I just completed the School of Synthesis Complete Program and it was the best money I have ever spent. Knowledge is power and thats what the teachers and content provided me with. My favourite thing about SOS is the fact that you can ask the teachers any question, and you will have a direct answer. They are your own personal trouble shooters for problems that arise for you while creating music. They are super talented dudes at SOS and discussions were always great. My course tip would defs be Modern Music Theory. If you dont know your notes and struggle to create melodies this is a great start. Alive with Ableton Live and Synthesis and Sampling really pushed the boundaries and we made some great sound. I wouldn’t skip past Production Masterclass, understanding your EQ’s and compressors is vital to a clean production. Shout out to Leroy aswell for a killer class on Maschine. All the love SOS!!

Tommy Everson

Studying the Complete Program gave me a great overview of all aspects of music production. Each instructor is highly knowledgeable and offers a clear and structured way of looking at each field, as well as opening the floor for discussion. The courses helped me to fill in the gaps in my learning, giving me a fresh perspective of how to approach my music and improve my workflow. Highly recommended!

Amar Savani

After extensively researching several dozens of music production schools I managed to find the most appropriate school that catered for my requirements. The School of synthesis offers a bit more than others in terms of networking opportunities, access to audio equipment and a classroom environment of 8 or less students to give us an opportunity to be heard. The school offers state-of-the-art technology and is composed of an experienced and diverse faculty, many of which are active in the music industry. Be prepared to be stretched out of your comfort zone with the courses. I would not hesitate to recommend the Complete Course and I feel I have gained invaluable knowledge to turn my passion into a profession. Thank you to all the tutors that made this possible.

Chris Koustoulidis

I attended The School of Synthesis with a deep passion for electronic music without any musical background wanting to learn how to produce electronic music. I’ve completed the “Alive” with Ableton Live course, The Sound Design (Synthesis & Sampling) course and recently The Modern Music Theory course. I can say with great confidence that these guys are amazing people and tutors who helped teach me the fundamentals and techniques to producing and understanding how electronic music is made.
