We are Emily and Liina, the founders of Equalize Music production. We understand you might be interested in learning music production, but don’t know where to start? We know this feeling and we understand that music tech can feel intimidating. So scroll down for some first steps you can take:
Your 3 First Steps To Music Production:
1. Know that everyone can learn music production! We all feel insecure about it in the beginning, but this is nothing you cannot overcome. All the equipment is meant for regular people to use and to be honest... it's not rocket science! 2. The only things you need to start with are a laptop and headphones. There are free softwares you can use and we can help you to install them and learn how you can use them to make music. 3. Come and learn with us. We arrange fun and welcoming courses for people just like you. The only thing you need is a laptop, headphones and a good internet connection - we'll teach you the rest!
What do we offer?
We offer Ableton Live online courses over Zoom for complete beginners and advanced beginners in music production, as well as beginner courses in mixing. These 4-week courses are for women, non-binary & trans people* aged 18+. We’ll provide the knowledge, resources and support for you to produce music and develop an unstoppable mindset!
The course fees start from £55 and on each course we have one or two free places available for anyone who can not afford the payment.
*Women / trans women / trans men / non-binary / agender / or gender variant people.
Meet your tutors:
The Equalize Music Production tutors are all female and non-binary music industry professionals. All of them use Ableton Live (the software we teach) in their everyday practice as music producers, live performers, musicians, mixing engineers, and sound designers. We value giving teaching opportunities for marginalized groups, who otherwise would struggle to enter this career due to confidence.

Key Words Explained:
is a person who can create music electronically, mix songs so they sound big and powerful, as well as record music using microphones. There are many reasons to learn production. For example, songwriters learn production so they can create their own demos and so they know how to express what they hear with technical terms. If you are a complete beginner, have a look at our Beginners Music Production course that will teach you everything you need to know to make your own music only using your computer.
” My favourite thing about the course was being around like minded people in a relaxed environment, learning a completely new creative skill. Liina and Emily were really approachable and knowledgable tutors.
Not sure if this is for you?
Emily is always open for a 15min Zoom call, so you can ask for more information about our courses, what you need to join and any other questions you might have. If you have doubts about your skill level or you really would want to learn production but feel anxious about joining a course, book a meeting with Emily and have a chat!
Book your 15min by selecting a suitable date from the calendar that is available here or from this link.

What else we offer:
As a company we aim to bring quality education to the audio industries, making sure that everyone has a fair chance for a safe space to learn and ask the “stupid questions” (which we believe don’t really exist). We also offer courses, workshops, and seminars for companies and organisations, to deliver high-level audio education, but also to help make the audio industry more associable.
Our founder Emily also offers one-to-one tuition and coaching. Learn more about them here.
We believe the “gift of confidence” is one of the most precious gifts you can give, and therefore you can purchase gift-cards from our online store.
