“I'm so glad I signed up to do this course taught by UK producer power house Aubrey Whitfield. It was beyond valuable to learn new techniques and even re-learn some fundamentals I'd forgotten about mixing and mastering. I've been implementing her teaching into every project since taking the course and my clients couldn't be happier with quality of my productions. Thanks Aubrey”

"I have learnt more from Aubrey’s courses in the last 6 months than I have in 6 years and I can now actually visualise making a career in music production. You are provided with support and feedback whenever you need it from Aubrey and I never once felt silly when asking her a question. Aubrey has a knack for making all of her students feel incredibly comfortable no matter what your skill level. Aubrey’s courses have been a game-changer and I can’t wait to start my 4th one later on in the year.”

"I took Aubrey's Mixing and Mastering Course and it was outstanding! I learned a lot from the entire course but what stood out to me was how she took one of the most complex and misunderstood subjects of mixing (Compression) explained and demonstrated it in the most clear and concise way I have ever seen. She makes it all so clear. A true worthwhile course".
