Their course “DJ Strategy and Performing Like a Pro” will be a valuable resource for DJs just getting started during quarantine or experienced ones looking to improve their skills. Artists starting to explore the music production world will also want to check out “Producing Your First Track in Ableton Live.” Presented by engineer and producer Marco Spaventi, this course covers essential concepts of the popular production software Ableton Live.
