Your mentor for the program (Justin Crosby) will teach you how to harness your creative and technical potential in Ableton Live by walking you through an in-depth, end to end tour of Ableton Live’s instruments, features, and devices. Justin has over a decade of experience using Live to produce music in a broad array of genres; from hybrid trailer scores to popular and underground genres of EDM, Justin has used Live for the past twelve years as a platform for creating music for almost any occasion. Whether you’re producing EDM for the dance floor, writing production music for media, or a singer-songwriter with a home studio, this class will inspire you to tap into Live’s uniquely fast workflow and maximize your time so you can focus on creativity and productivity.
Originally trained as a guitarist, Justin began recording and producing music in high school and quickly found himself on stage touring with indie bands ranging from Blur to the Boo Radleys, and sharing the stage with acts such as the Smashing Pumpkins, Flaming Lips, and Radiohead. His early years spent in recording studios primed him for a love of the writing and production process.
Justin’s techniques are a real-world approach, an approach he developed through years working in the trenches of production music. His music catalog spans television in virtually every corner of the globe, trailers for major motion pictures, independent film scores, apps, games, and media. Whether your goal is to make music for media or music for the masses, Justin is here to help you realize your vision by becoming prolific in your creative home base, Ableton Live.
With this rich history and passion for production, Justin will guide you through every nuance of the process. From an in-depth and hands-on tour of Live to the fundamentals of sound design and mixing, pre-production, and project organization. He will be your creative mentor, teaching you how to produce, arrange, and remix — but most importantly how to finish your tracks using Ableton Live as your inspirational hub!
