    How to become a Live expert?
    Hi guys, I need some advices from you: In the next 5 years I'm planning to create my own music school, and I would know the best way(s)to become an Ableton Live expert, in order to be able to teach it in depth. I wanna teach drums and music softwares, I've already a place to set it, I just need some in depth education. Is there any kind of certicates, or diplomas?

    Alex, there's no formal Live training from Ableton at the moment, but there are courses appearing at colleges that do music technology. You may find that general music technology courses include Live. I've been teaching Live since version 2, to groups and individuals, and the best qualification you can have is experience - jamming, recording, etc. That's what people want to know - what you have done, and what you are doing. That will impress them more than a piece of paper. And of course, I have to say, keep an eye out for Live-related products from MacProVideo! :-)

    [quote:2463]the best qualification you can have is experience. That will impress them more than a piece of paper.[/quote] I think you've got a point, even two... But after I found this [url][/url] and [url][/url] I'm wondering if theses online studies wouldn't add a nice icing on the cake; to be certified from berklee isn't nothing, I agree with you when you say that's what you've done and what you are doing that does matters, but isn't it reassuring to study with a certified berklee teacher? In my region there's no place to study Reason, Live, Native Instruments Softwares... That's a good point, but if I want to attract people, I need my school to have references! ;) About MacProVideo tutorials, when do we have the pleasure to see on the online store " Ableton Live 102: an abyssal diving into Ableton Live" ;)
