Focussed on you.

At Bitwig Academy Amsterdam we like to keep our lessons personal and focussed on the student. From our own experience, we know that every student has a different level of background knowledge and a different learning curve. And while some have professional intentions or are eager to know every function, some are only interested in the basic knowledge to start making music.

Modular Learing

Inspired by Bitwig Studio itself we decided to offer a more modular way of learning. We devided the program into blocks (modules), which are available for you to learn at your own pace. No intentions of integrating hardware? We wil not talk about it. (or at least try not to..). We will spend as much or little time per module as you require, so you set the pace.

Private, Dual or Group

It is possible to follow the lessons individually or in small groups. If you want to attend class together, please make sure you have a similar background knowledge and learning goals. As we are no dating site, we do not offer "partners" to attend lessons with, although we will facilitate ways to meet other Bitwig Studio users.
