“I feel like I have learned a lot from Mike. He is a very helpful and knowledgeable teacher who passes on his know-how very well. I feel like I have overcome some of the fears I had about Ableton now!”

Each session will respond to individual needs, but could for instance look at:

  • Working with single-hit and loop samples.
  • Working with computer synthesisers.
  • Working with midi controllers.
  • Creating your own track from scratch.
  • Recording live instruments to use with your productions.
  • Sound processing, including EQ, Compression & FX.
  • Arranging your track.
  • Mixing and remixing.
  • DJing with Ableton.
  • Bring along your own laptop with your own material to work on or create something new on the equipment in the state of the art sound recording studio at Band on the Wall.

    Tutor Mike Richardson has been involved in the music business for approaching a decade now, working as both a sound engineer & event manager, more recently concentrating on DJing and production. He has international recognition releasing music and taking in club and festival gigs all over the UK and abroad. 
With an eclectic taste, Mike brings together house, techno, electro, garage and even drum and bass, in ways that are sometimes surprising, but always bang on the money. His weekly Retune FM Radio Show on Manchester Unity Radio, has brought with it an army of devotees.

    Have a listen to LOOKING BACK by Mike Richardson & Howard Sessions feat KT Forrester (Lost My Dog Records) to whet your appetite.

    Mike has also released music on Retweak Records, and 3am Recordings and is currently developing a live set and a stack full of new tracks which he will roll out over the coming months.
