How it works
Synthesis & Sound Design can take up to 2 weeks or 30 days to complete, depending on the timetable established with a student. It includes 5 individual online video sessions (60 minutes each), as well as practical assignments which usually take up 2-5 hours to complete. All of our sessions are recorded with screen capture software and provided for student's private use, in order to further establish the concepts and practical technics reviewed in the course.
