  • Simon was a fantastic facilitator. The information he provided was invaluable. He gave great tips and was extremely knowledgeable. Would highly recommend! Melissa

    It was a brilliant course, Simon was absolutely amazing. Dom

    Some of the tips we got from Simon, and the music theory, he made it so simple. I completely have a new mindset for music. Ajeet

    Listening and learning in such a short timeframe. Getting a taste of an interest of mine that would otherwise be a very expensive test run. Simon was awesome, so knew what he was on about. Really knowledgeable and engaging, also super patient with everyone. Isabelle

    Great blend of conceptional stuff & music theory & industry content, as well as the pro tools stuff which made it all come together. Really great course. Alice

    I learnt so much, explained so clearly, relevantly and completely applicable to reallife situation. Such a wonderful joy & passion from Simon. Kim
