A one-year intensive music program created by our world class mentors

In addition to world class mentoring and an abundance of opportunities, our program includes workshops on vocal development, musical collaboration, song structure and mindset.

As you develop throughout the year you will see your catalogue of songs grow, the quality of work improve and you will leave LAAMP with experience, knowledge and a bank of new ideas.

Studio time

Classrooms don’t create artists,

studio sessions do

At LAAMP you’ll be making as much music as possible, with the intention of constantly developing your craft and getting your songs out into the world. Becoming a master at anything takes thousands of hours of focused, well guided effort.

We want you to be able to dig deep into your own work, in an environment that elevates you and holds you to the highest standards possible. In order to make this happen, we’ve set aside a major proportion of your time at LAAMP for hands on music making. The input you receive through mentors and lectures is there to guide, inform and inspire your current project, as well as your overall skills and creativity. However, there is no substitute for actually doing it. 

That’s why we have designed our program based around guided sessions, workshops and personal studio time. So whether you thrive in a big studio surrounded by talent, or prefer solitude with your laptop or guitar to make magic, we’re ready for you.

Collaboration

Collaborate with the best!

Music unites talent from vastly different backgrounds and with different experiences. By inspiring and challenging each other through collaboration, we’re able to create something bigger than the sum of the individual parts. We know that being a team player is instrumental to success in music, and this knowledge penetrates all our efforts at LAAMP.

Collaboration is placed at the heart of everything. Artists, songwriters and producers mingle and work together. You will constantly be in sessions with others complementing and lifting your skills. You’ll write songs together, collaborate on productions and perform together.

Mentorship

Nothing beats one-on-one feedback

The foundation of your year at LAAMP is the mentorship program. Our hand picked mentors have all succeeded at the highest level of the music industry. They are hit-writers and respected artists.

Throughout the year you will hear and meet world class creators, giving you a flow of new impulses, held together by our method and day to day staff. The mentors will conduct sessions with smaller groups as well as addressing a wider audience, depending on the subject at hand. There will be ample opportunity for direct interaction with the mentors.

Uniquely, we will have students and mentors work together on songs, each songwriting session getting specific feedback and help with ideas.

Get your music heard

It’s an exciting time to make music. The process of music making is changing by the minute, so instead of teaching things that quickly go out of date, we will hear from the most prolific, successful artists and collaborators.”

Throughout the year we will host talks, discussions and workshops with the people who actually make the decisions. We will hear anecdotes and case studies, ask questions and challenge misconceptions.

All with one goal - to help you find your voice and take your music to the next level.

A typical week at LAAMP

Gaining hands on experience, working with talented peers and getting valuable feedback and mentorship. This is your typical week at LAAMP.

  • Studio sessions
  • Mentorship
  • Lectures

Kick off your week with massive input. During Mondays and Tuesdays, the mentors will be conducting sessions and workshops in smaller groups. These workshops go deep, exposing you to the tools needed for your specific skill set, developing your craft and drawing lines through history. Relevant projects will continuously be assigned and reviewed. Monday evenings are intense and can go very late. The mentors work one-on-one with the students on their songs, giving you a chance to get direct, individual feedback. Wednesday through Friday is action time. You will be immersed in your weekly projects, supported by relevant lectures and gatherings inspiring the current task at hand.

Are you ready? Send us some of your music, and we’ll get back to you!
