Testimonals

  • For people like me, who care about creating amazing music more than just about anything else in their lives, Slam Academy is that secret sauce that you've always wanted, but never knew you needed. A place that people who truly want to become experts at music production can call home. Not only will you be given all the tools and techniques you need to make dope music, but you will be surrounded by so many like-minded individuals that you just can't help but get better.

  • I've learned a s***load from the videos on the website and the interactive sessions are great! I guess it would take me years of fiddling to find out some of the stuff - it's really helpful. You've touched on a lot of stuff where I get stuck in production, I feel this is gonna explode my workflow. Just wanted to say a million thanks, looking forward to the next class!

  • Bionik's [Instructor Stefon Taylor's] theories on creativity and songwriting have affected my work and I feel that I have "upgraded" as a musician because of them.  The other students in the class ranged from little studio knowledge to accomplished musician and I know everyone was able to connect, engage, and ultimately develop a solid mental concept for how to approach recording.

  • It has not only given me the skill to confidently use Ableton, along the way, my ears have been developing, I\'ve also learned about music theory, audio physics, synthesis, electronic music history and other mind-blowing subjects, and of course, I\'ve learned how music is produced with the highest quality standards. In just 6 months I got from feeling lost within the software to move around it like only I had seen pro\'s doing it.

  • I would like to express what a profoundly constructive, transformative force Slam Academy has been for my life to this point. Slam and its staff have provided me with the tools of the trade, several skilled pairs of guiding hands in the process of learning to use them, and myriad opportunities for creative exchange and collaboration. More fundamentally, you have shared your temple with me and given me a place to call home.

  • Slam Academy really made it real for me, and I wouldn't be there without the things you showed me...you really helped me step it up to the next level.  Just wanted you to know that I appreciate you and what you did for me.
