Home Recording and Music Production

The Nathaniel School of Music is constantly finding and bringing you ways that makes the learning of music as easy and convenient for you as possible.

That’s our passion, that’s our goal and that’s our love.

Pro Tools is currently the most widely-used audio production software in the music industry, which enables musicians to record, compose, edit and mix with great speed and ease. Musicians are constantly striving to create new forms of expression through music and using software like Pro Tools makes it possible to do so. The Nathaniel School of Music offers workshops on Pro Tools, ensuring that our students are kept up to date with industry standard DAW and music production.

The Pro Tools workshop is conducted by none other than Jason Zachariah, who is amongst one of the very few certified Pro Tools operators in the country. Jason’s passion for music combined with his musical intelligence, theoretical and technical skills have enabled him to develop into a brilliant musician and an astounding composer.

We also encourage students to get a hands-on experience with the software using Mac Workstations available for use. The Nathaniel School of Music also offers internship opportunities for those who are interested in increasing their knowledge about Pro tools and music production.

So contact us at the Nathaniel School of Music, if you are interested to create and produce music.
