Logic Pro X With Certification

Apple Certified Logic Pro X Music Production Course | San Francisco

The best way to learn to produce your music in Logic Pro X? To learn in small classes! Whether you’re just starting out, or have some self-taught production experience under your belt, this course will serve up some fantastic workflow shortcuts and friendly focus from industry-active professionals who form our superb roster. Participants will get to learn how to produce music the same way as the pros do.

The course length is 36 hours – plenty of time to ask questions and bounce ideas off your tutors and fellow participants as you share inspiration and tips in a room full of like-minded people. Garnish whole-heartedly believe this feature of the learning gives all students a significant edge over online learning courses and tutorial sessions.

Should you happen to miss out on any sessions via illness or holiday, we’ll always do our best to arrange it so that you can catch up on a future cycle of the course. As it is, all courses have extensive notes put together for participants by the experts who develop them – and successful completion of the course will earn you an industry-recognized certificate. You can start getting your hands dirty with all of this right now by joining our new Facebook group for Logic Pro X users by clicking here.

If you’d prefer to use your own laptop for this kind of course, that could be a good idea for 2 reasons: firstly, you can get help setting it up the way you’d like (and having the added bonus of the laptop looking the same at home as it does in the classroom). Secondly, you save money on hiring a machine. However, you can easily hire a fully-loaded iMac from Garnish by adding a $75 supplement to reserve a machine at the same time as you book the course. We’ll always supply audio interfaces, headphones and controller keyboards for anyone who needs them, irrespective.

Testimonials

I wouldn't change a thing about this course. It was ten times better than I expected it to be. The instructor was incredibly informative and kept things fun. I've played with software for a couple of years and thought I got most of the basics down but I definitely was wrong. Great course! I would definitely recommend this course to anybody wanting to learn the production side of music. It was incredibly helpful and left me inspired to make tracks 24/7.

Kristina Bialkowski

I went from knowing pretty much nothing about Logic to knowing how to built loops, work with midi, mix, and actually be able to record the music I write and and arrange on the computer. I'm really excited because Logic Pro X has opened up a new world for me as a singer songwriter!

Dawn Red Sun

I am a lot better off than I was months ago blindly watching Youtube tutorials and not knowing what I was doing. The teacher was a great, very patient and understanding, with all skill levels in the room.

Abraham Perrotta

The small class size allowed the instructor time to give us individual attention/feedback. The teaching style was easily adjusted according to the levels in the class. As a very new producer, I never felt left behind. I never would have thought I could make this much progress in just 6 weeks!

Andie Arbogast

This class was great. I've been wanting to learn digital music production and was warned that Logic was one of the most complex and difficult to learn DAW. In only 6 days I think I've learned the program well enough to start producing my own tracks. Not only that but I've left the class with enough excitement to get busy and make some music with my new found knowledge.

Paul Vachier

It was very hands on. the teacher knew a vast amount about this topic and is very informative and clear. He has methods of utilizing teachings that enable us to relate to better understand in what circumstances these methods would be used for productions.

Raymond Casarez

This class was tough for me, as I'm a beginner (and am 48 with not a ton of technical or DAW experience). I wanted to immerse myself, so I could learn as much as possible, but much of the class was still a bit too advanced for me. Darren was fantastic, and I REALLY appreciated the offer to come back and stand in future classes. That makes me feel like I'll definitely get my moneys worth!

William 'John' Bragg

I came into the program with no idea how to work Logic, and after the intensive week, I worked out programming beats, using loops and samples…I feel like I can take my music to the next level now. Thanks 🙂

Christy Thompson

Great teacher who leaves no stone unturned! After Garnish, I feel that I have the tools to build a strong foundation and begin a career in the music industry.
