- Learning Music is an in-browser tutorial geared towards beginners.
Ableton's new website, Learning Music, offers an interactive introduction to electronic music production.
The tutorial contains seven chapters that address the fundamentals of writing music on a computer. It transposes many of Ableton Live's user interfaces into the browser setting so that beginners can experiment with basic aspects of production for free.
Hits like Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" or Inner City's "Good Life" appear as examples in the lessons section, where users are prompted to deconstruct them to understand important aspects of songwriting. The site is a complement to Ableton's 2015 book, Making Music—74 Creative Strategies For Electronic Music Producers, which teaches music-making strategies that are meant to apply to any platform or software. That one has its own in-browser version here.
