Welcome to the Los Angeles Academy for Artists and Music Production (LAAMP), where we offer a one-year music program focused on recording contemporary pop music. Our program brings together talented music producers, artists, and songwriters to collaborate, learn, and grow in a dynamic creative environment.
At LAAMP Music School, we offer a unique program that sets us apart from other music programs. Our founders, Stargate Music producers Mikkel Eriksen and Tor Hermansen, and other industry icons work directly with our selected students each week to produce high-quality, original music. Our hands-on approach to learning is what makes LAAMP unique.
Our comprehensive program covers everything from songwriting and music production to marketing and music business essentials. Based in Santa Monica, our campus features 16 state-of-the-art recording studios where students collaborate with music producers, artists, and songwriters to produce songs each week. Mentor feedback helps students become better artists, songwriters, and producers.
Our music production workshops cover topics like DAW templates, vocal chains, comping, and mixing, while songwriting workshops teach song structure, toplining, melodies, and crafting catchy hooks for hit songs. Music business workshops cover record deals, publishing, touring, music video production, and music distribution.
We also offer vocal training, media and social media training, and live performance mentoring to help students develop their skills. Live showcases at Los Angeles venues give students the chance to perform in front of industry professionals and music fans.
LAAMP provides opportunities for students to connect with industry professionals, showcase their talents, and gain real-world experience. We have relationships with record labels, music publishers, and other industry players, and some students have even signed publishing deals with Stargate Music.
Our online program allows students from around the world to collaborate and make music each week, receiving mentor feedback and valuable insights.
