DO IN NEED TO BRING MY OWN LAPTOP OR GEAR?
For our Music & Production courses, a laptop and headphones are required from the student, and we provide gear to practice.

The Event & Organization course requires note taking, so you can either bring your laptop or notepad, as you wish!
STUDY PRESSURE AND HOME ASSIGNMENTS
Through out the course you will work on a project-plan with a group and also have some small take-home assignments. The study pressure is low, so you can defintenlty take it along side your school, study or work.
