What are students saying about us?
It gave me perspective to electronic music, it's history and genres, interesting. Lu was supporting and clear and guided us from the very beginning.
I found the course very inspiring. Lu has been a supportive and enthusiastic guide, able to keep the course playful even when the obvious challenges of learning a new skill arose.
It was interesting and the handouts were informative.
We were able to learn about equipment, software and many options to start making music with fun exercises.
It was interesting to learn how to record my own music and also knowing more about the history of electronic music (which was unfamiliar to me)
I learned to make music from knowing nothing about the DAW, creating rhythm from MIDI, recording samples, layering, adjusting parameters and effects, a hint of mixing and mastering up to exporting my own music!
The course was well-structured and allowed us to freely express ourselves with music
Great course & nice positive atmosphere during the course
Lu is friendly, patient, and obviously knows what he is talking about
