I'd highly recommend this programme to producers seeking to improve their creative process. Sebastian taught me how to improve my creative and technical approach in a clear and relatable manner. He takes the time to answer all questions thoroughly. It was a pleasure learning from such a talented and humble teacher! I look forward to taking one-on-one sessions in the future.Read Less

With love for both music and people, Sebastian through the In Bloom course has given me the confidence to be who I want to be both musically and humanly. I have become open to the fact that what I do musically is good enough, and realize that the obstacles I encounter along the way are part of a process for me to grow even more as an artist and also as a human being. I do not have the experience that In Bloom is a typical Ableton online course, on the contrary, there is a focus on, through spiritual instructions, how you can elevate your inner creative powers with meditation as your guide no matter what art form you are dealing with. Throughout the course, Sebastian has shown a great degree of presence, and he has been super good at sharing his knowledge, which clearly embraces far and wide. I have only positive experiences with this course, not only because of Sebastian, but also how the team behind him has helped to lift the whole project. Namaste :)Read Less

Talking to him changed my perspective. I have been practicing meditation for 10 years but I never used meditation as a tool for creativity. I believe that his approach helps to accept creativity as part of us and therefore to express ourselves freely. It might seem like a small thing but my way of seeing is what is missing in this society. So, thank you.Read Less

Well constructed course, which touches many topics and areas of electronic music production and not only. Even if you are not aiming at live performances you still will get some valuable knowledge from this. Sebastian is a very dedicated teacher, who is ready to do an extra hour of course just to manage to explain everything to his students. Really appreciate the whole thing, thank you very much.Read Less
