Student Testimonials

“I have been meaning to dip my toe in the water of music production for years but never knew where to start. I eventually decided on a course in Logic Pro 9 with Secret School of Sound and I’m glad to say that I made the right choice. Their introductory course was pitched exactly at my level(beginner) and I really benefitted from their low tutor/pupil ratio which in my class was 1:2. This ensured that we both had the tutors undivided attention at all times which was great.

Where the Secret School of Sound really shines is in the obvious in-depth knowledge of its instructors – they really know their stuff and just as importantly, they explain the concepts in a simple and concise manner which is clear and easy to understand. They have just the right balance of theory training and practical exercises to keep things interesting. The tutors are extremely knowledgeable and they create a great learning atmosphere by checking regularly that you understand before moving on and asking questions is always encouraged which is great to see.

So what did I get from the course? It gave me a firm grasp of the basic fundamentals of music production using Logic Pro 9 so, job done! I would recommend the Secret School of Sound to anyone who wants to get started in music production or DJ’ing. They’re reasonably priced, they know their stuff and they are good at sharing their knowledge with others – what more could you ask for? I’ll definitely be back for another course.”

“I felt the course was great value for money, and I can honestly say that my skill set and understanding of Logic studio has dramatically increased. I was particularly impressed with my tutor who made understanding the course content easy & the lengths he went to delivering the content whether it was part of the course for that evening or an on the spot question which usually had nothing to do with that evenings schedule. I really enjoyed my time at the school & I will definitely recommend it to anybody who wishes to learn or further their music tech education.”

“I would highly recommend Secret School of Sound to any one who wants to know how to use music software. A lot of courses these days can be a bit all over the place but Secret School of Sound is run very well and professionally. Ross knows his software very well. 10/10″
