Learn Electronic Music
No Experience Required
All Gear Supplied
Are you interested in electronic music? Curious about trying your hand at creating some beats or feel like extending your creative reach beyond traditional instruments? Wired Music Labs is your gateway to making your own electronic music tracks. With professional instruction and the latest gear from Roland, Arturia, Ableton, Serato, among others, we take a ‘hands-on’ approach to get you up and running. No boring classroom instruction, start building your first track in 30 minutes. No experience required.
Wired offers series of electronic music workshops that provide electronic music beginners and enthusiasts with a foundation in composing and producing their own tracks.
WHERE DO I START?
We have three introductory workshops but the best place to start is with “First Track” because this gives a good basic overview of how to build a track from the ground up and this knowledge and understanding will be used in every other workshop we offer including the DJ courses.
Everything we offer assumes the possibilities of a live performance (i.e. out of the studio and showing your chops to others… after all: getting people excited to hear your music and then simply hitting play and crossing your arms is a little lame).
THE SIMPLE, HANDS ON EXPERIENCE
Sound complicated? It isn’t. There is no musical theory, whiteboard talks, worksheets, hand outs (borrrrring)…its hands-on, lets go, from the moment you walk in….(come a little early and you will get going right away). Because we assume our workshop attendees have no musical experience or electronic music production skills, all those lights and knobs (and strange words like samples, loops, and sequencers) will make sense after about an hour and you will undoubtedly surprise yourself with what you produce.
We record every track that our workshop attendees produce and post it on SoundCloud just in case your friends and family don’t believe you have some new chops.
OUR SMALL CLASSES
With 8-10 participants as our limit, everyone gets the help they need as we go.
We have invested thousands of $$ in providing the latest, industry standard gear and our little secret… all of this gear works together seamlessly so by the end of the introductory workshops everyone will have experienced the full impact of a studio experience.
“In a matter of a few short minutes, I had the ability to program rhythm and understand patterns, which lead to me having a great time experimenting with sounds, filters and effects.”
“As a musically keen but instrumentally and technically uneducated person, I found the pace, instruction, and length of the class to be fitting. I was surprised how easy it was to learn the basics of electronic music production on this complicated-looking gear, and left wanting more.”
Laurel Borrowman, creator of Sick Beats
“It was fun to take a trip with the ladies, and, being pretty green about drum machines, I was happy to find that I could make a drum beat in no time at all, with the guidance of Kevin The Expert, but disappointed to find that the beat I made was thoroughly uninspiring.“
“Got me feeling inspired!”
“Very impressed with Kevin’s teaching style and I thought the course was very well run. I am very interested in attending more.”
“I attended the First Track workshop and it was soo much fun and very… informative! Great for beginners, like myself. I cannot wait to attend the Fast Track workshop!”
“Kevin and Ethan did a great job and the kids had a good time. They were sad to leave.“
Stephan F., Teacher, Mediated Learning Academy
“I really enjoyed the Electronic Music Workshops!!! I am just starting off in music production and I have been trying to find out my “sound” for the last few months. [Wired’s] teaching style is very conversational and straightforward that the 2-hour classes goes by so quickly. I also like how [the instructors] compliment each other to make our learning experience more effective. Literally, “filled our heads with the good stuff!””
