SAE announces partnership with online learning provider Education & Bass

10 Oct 2019

SAE Institute are excited to announce that they have partnered with Education & Bass, who will be making their online learning platform free for all current SAE UK students to use from Wednesday 9 October.

The Education & Bass platform will give students access to a whole range of online courses and lectures relating to music production. SAE students will benefit from 1000+ free online multi-genre Music Technology tutorials (software and platform agnostic), delivered by active specialists and qualified teachers. The content ranges from Absolute Beginner to Pro, so is suited to students at all stages of their academic journey at SAE, with new lessons added weekly. 

The platform’s resources and support are reinforced by its founders who have decades of active experience in the music industry and education system. Some of the Education & Bass tutors include DJ Rap (Drum & Bass/Jungle), DJ Yoda (Hip Hop), Digital (Drum & Bass/Jungle), DJ Santero (House), Timo Garcia aka Nolan (House & Disco), Leon Switch (Drum & Bass/Dubstep), CPE/Kasket (Techno/Electro), and X=X (Techno/Electro).

Using the platform, SAE students will be able to develop and refine the skills they are being taught by our expert teaching staff, focusing on the precise styles of music they are interested in producing. 

Andrew Ferguson is the Founder/Director of Education & Bass, and performs under the moniker Nomine (aka Outrage). He said: “I started Education & Bass following five years of lecturing at college and university level because I felt that Music Technology education was not truly accessible for all and there was a lack of quality online resources. I now believe that through collaboration between industry and education, huge positive changes can be made to contribute towards a modern, relevant, positive and engaging teaching and learning environment. Resulting in real opportunities for the next generation and much support for the music industry talent pipeline and international music technology education. SAE is world renowned for its music technology education. We believe this partnership is an amazing opportunity to truly join the education and industry dots and bridge the gap.”

Andrew has held down a variety of positions in the music industry for more than 20 years, working as an international DJ, music producer, record label owner, teacher and entrepreneur. 

Raff Di Renzo, Content & Partnerships Manager at Education & Bass and artist Nurve, said: “We, at Education & Bass, provide a sense of community with a human touch. For me personally, Education & Bass has given me the opportunity to share my 20+ years of music production, business and industry knowledge / experience with people from all ages and from all walks of life, which is so rewarding and gratifying for me.”

Raff Di Renzo (Nurve) has toured across the world and released on multiple record labels, including his own label, M.U.D. 

SAE is excited to be making the Education & Bass platform available to students and is confident that it will give our students an edge when it comes to establishing invaluable industry connections and understanding the range of genres they may go on to work in after graduation.
