343 Labs is an Ableton certified school. This course, created by John Selway, is the result of his many years as a musician and sound designer searching for interesting ways to make unique sounds using synthesizers and samplers. The course teaches the fundamentals of sound design and explores the various synthesis and sampling techniques so that students can ultimately navigate any type of synthesizer. Throughout the course, students will be applying their skills directly to creative projects to make music and will leave the class with an arsenal of their signature sounds.

What students say
I took an Intro to Ableton Live course to learn production. As a very fresh producer and DJ I was able to accelerate my learning of the tool and make progress in finding my sound. The instruction was particularly notable – the community format is great for getting feedback on material, and works well especially for those who learn best in an interactive environment.
This was such an amazing learning experience. The class was small, intimate and welcoming. The teachers were super helpful and always around before and after class for additional advice and questions. I took the Ableton Live Summer Intensive and would recommend to anyone looking to deep dive into this powerful program. I'm now off into my own musical journey!
The instructors at 343 are outstanding. True professionals who are masters at the software they are teaching. Highly recommended. I've done both in-person and remote online courses, and had great experiences with both.
