MODULES

MODULE 1

This module was designed to help our students 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 French 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 experiences 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.

This course is broken up into three levels of difficulty based on the student experience. Whether you’ve never opened GarageBand before or are an Ableton veteran looking to expand your knowledge, we have the course for you.

Module 5

This module revolves around audio and understanding the principles of sound. We use the brand-new studios of Artistic Palace 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

In this module, we will 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 artists’ 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.
