29/04/2008 Launches Online Music Production School

Cutting edge technology is the basis for a new video-based web-training site that makes disc jockey equipment and music software easy to use.
Providing support for aspiring musicians, DJ's and producers, offers easy-to-use and step-by-step web based video tutorials and resources.
The site also includes features, news and reviews as well as an online community where people can meet, learn and share knowledge with other music enthusiasts.
According to SonicAcademy Founder, Kevin Traynor: "We already have the support of some of the world's biggest DJs, including Carl Cox, who told us that Sonic Academy Online offers the support he could have used as an aspiring DJ and producer.
"The technical advice we're offering is not available at this level, this easily and this affordably anywhere else.
The user-generated content also makes the site interesting and fresh," he explained.
The new venture is an extension of the successful Sonic Academy training centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, that provides face-to-face training for music presenters and broadcasters through to accredited education courses for school and college students and training for home enthusiasts.
The company said the site is supported and endorsed by some of the world's leading manufacturers of music technology hardware and software and other key industry players including: Pioneer, M-Audio, Vestax, Steinberg, Ableton and the Ministry of Sound.
