Modules

MODULE 1

This module was designed with the intention of helping our students to develop their creative and musical skills in a practical fashion. Our lectures from industry professionals cover a diverse range of topics including lyric writing, song arrangement, the use of harmony and melody, and the real-world side of writing and production sessions.

MODULE 2

In these group classes, students are exposed to the ins and outs of the Dutch and European music industry with lectures from some of the most important players in the field. This includes Label Execs, Publishers, Managers, Artists, Producers, Bookers and more. This is a chance to learn from and connect with high-ranking people in the industry in a more direct way than what is offered at any other institution.

MODULE 3

A unique feature of Wisseloord Academy is the wide variety of talents and experience displayed by our students. Some have been at it for years and have highly-developed skills in songwriting, performing, and playing instruments, while others are just beginning to dip their toe into the world of musical creativity. In these hands-on classes, students teach one another by partaking in production and songwriting sessions. These sessions are guided by mentors of the Academy and guest lecturers who deliver 1- on-1 feedback to help mold and develop creative visions.

MODULE 4

We designed this module to demystify modern music production techniques. This means learning the fundamental principles behind various Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) and plug-ins. We cover sound design, synthesis, MIDI programming, signal processing, vocal production, and “in-the-box” recording and mixing.

MODULE 5

This module revolves around audio and understanding the principles of sound. We use the legendary Wisseloord Studios to teach a varied number of topics including acoustics, digital and analogue recording techniques, the fundamentals of mixing and mastering, advanced mixing and mastering, and full-band recording. We aim to help students develop the skills necessary to confidently record, mix, and master full live bands at a professional level.

MODULE 6

Wisseloord has access to a huge network of some of the best touring and session musicians in the country, who are willing to give regular one-on-one lessons as well as masterclasses on advanced techniques. If you’re looking to incorporate your playing into your productions, are interested in picking up a new instrument, or would like to expand your preexisting skillset, this module is specifically created with you in mind.

MODULE 7

In this module, we accompany you through the development process of solidifying your image and presence as an artist on stage. This entails stage coaching for live performances as well as designing the overall artist’s sound, set from the ground up. Whether you want to work with live bands, a DJ, or a hybrid of live and pre-sequenced music, this course covers it all and ultimately aims to put our students at an advantage through contact with industry insiders and professionals in the field.

MODULE 8

5 private lessons + you join our team during 10 studio sessions

MODULE 9

Tired of practicing DJ’ing alone in the basement? This module is for the musicians among us that are interested in developing their DJ’ing abilities. From technical skills to the development of your style and onstage stamina, this class covers everything the burgeoning DJ needs to perform.
