Ableton in Education
Teaching creative expression requires tools to help students develop their technical skills and inspire them to find their own artistic voices. Through Ableton Live’s intuitive and easily grasped interface, students have access to a comprehensive digital audio workstation that encourages experimentation with its unique, non-linear workflow and customizability.
Welcome to Live
Both a powerful DAW and a versatile creative platform, Live allows you to teach broad fundamentals of composition and performance. Improvisation and experimentation are encouraged though Live’s unique Session View. Creative possibilities can be expanded with the programming environment Max for Live – a completely customizable creative laboratory, opening the ability to teach connections between code, art, technology and music.
Create with Live
With this flexibility, Live has proven itself to be an essential instructional resource for a wide range of curricula, from the fundamentals of music production to advanced, multi-disciplinary artistic practice.
From creative tools for musicians and producers, to installations in museums and theaters through the fields of film, television, and advertising, Live software is the enabling technology behind countless real-world audio applications. Mastery of Live gives graduates foundational knowledge for careers in the creative industries.
Hands-on with Push
