Logic Pro Tuition

Oscillate Recordings offers one-to-one or small group training on Logic Pro X. This can be from the beginner just starting out or an experienced user looking to take their music to the next level.

One-to-one sessions are an excellent way to learn quickly and each lesson is tailor made to suit the individual. We recommend you bring in your projects into the studio to learn how to develop them and how to use the software more proficiently.  This is something you would not get from learning at a music technology college in a traditional classroom environment.
