The Audio Production Course (APC) is a twelve week course that takes place in the Mosaic studio and is designed to give the student hands-on experience in producing and engineering music. It is a highly specialized program focused on all technical aspects of sound production.
The APC is a sister school of the APC in YWAM Montana which has been running for more than 10 years. YWAM Montana staff will be partnering with YWAM Amsterdam through teaching, staffing and pioneering the APC in Amsterdam.
The first area of focus is Pro Tools, which is one of the best sounding, most widely used audio production software in the industry; it enables you to record, compose, edit, and mix with great speed and ease.
The second area of focus is Audio Production; in this part of the school students can expect to learn all about hardware equipment used in a recording school as well as in live shows. They will learn terminology which is vital for communication when working with producers, musicians, and other engineers. By the end of the school students will have a solid foundation for working in a recording studio.
This course is a secondary school, meaning you must first complete a Discipleship Training School with YWAM.

The goal of APC is meant to be a launching pad to the Nations Project. The mission of the Nations Project is to listen to each nation and give a voice to the heart of the people. The goal is to capture the sound of a developing nation/people group and have it impact the nations through their language and song.
There will be opportunity following the 12 weeks to get involved in this project in many different ways.
