All of our Eurorack courses are currently 4 weeks long (unless noted), with a maximum of 5 seats per section.

Classes will meet online for 1 hour via live Skype or Hangouts sessions weekly, at a time determined based on student availability. Your instructor will deliver a 40-50 minute lecture, with the remainder of the hour spent on extra tips and tricks and answering questions submitted via text chat in the session. Classes are dynamically tailored to the students setup, and start as soon as they are filled.

Office Hours are another 2 live class meetings per week, covering any relevant topics including questions, routing ideas, anything related to the weeks lessons, current modular events and anything else that comes up.
