- The Manhattan school features many of the teachers from the since-closed Dubspot.
A new music production school called 343 Labs has opened in New York.
343 Labs is the project of former Dubspot instructor Max Wild and Nacho Isa. They've brought in a number of instructors who taught at Dubspot, including John Selway, Abe Duque, Cândida Borges, Brent Arnold and Adam Partridge. The school offers classes in Ableton Live, Logic Pro, mixing and mastering, songwriting, music theory and more, with plans for DJing and live performance programs in the future.
The "idea is to create a global electronic music education community at the cutting-edge of music technology and education," says the press release.
343 Labs is also offering a deal to former students affected by the shutdown of Dubspot, which was previously the world's largest electronic music production school, and shut down suddenly last year, leaving many students in the lurch financially. Students who submit proof of payment to cancelled Dubspot courses will receive free classes starting in January 2019. (Head to the 343 Labs website for more info on that.)
343 Labs is located on the third floor of 243 Canal Street in Lower Manhattan. RA readers who sign up before January 31, 2019 can receive a 20% discount at checkout with promo code RA.
