The legendary Fresh Production Course is back for 2017! The course has been running quite a while now and has seen a huge amount of fresh new talent take part, providing lots of budding producers with the core skills they need to start making music that means something special to them. So, what makes the course such a winner?

Each Fresh EDM Production Course is a 5 week program running once a week on Monday nights (from 6pm – 9pm) so it won’t take up too much of your time. The course has been designed to cater for everybody from beginners through to music producers with moderate knowledge, and it covers all aspects of music production and techniques which can be applied to all music styles.

It’s a practical course too, less of the book study and more of the hands on, with students given plenty of time to experiment and learn the concepts covered, with access to state of the art equipment at SAE.

Plus it’s taught by a true legend of the music biz, Fresh 92.7s Steve Hart – Radio Host, Audio Producer, Aria DJ, and House Music Producer signed with Vicious Recordings in Melbourne. Steve is an accomplished brand, and his music is consistently found in the charts, and heard being played by the best DJs at clubs and festivals around the world.

The skills learned across the course can be applied to a variety of areas – you might want to learn how to produce your own tracks, build on your existing knowledge, learn to edit existing audio, produce ads; whatever your taste or experience the Fresh Production Course has you covered!
