SEMA’s Approach

We believe that the best way to learn is by getting directly into the music production and deejaying process. You will have endless opportunities to immerse yourself in the magic of creating music and deejaying - SEMA will give you the tools, guidance and space to chart your own path to success. SEMA offers access to cutting-edge software and hardware from our global music technology partners including Ableton, Native Instruments, Shure, Elektron, ADAM Audio, and more. As a SEMA student, you will also have access to your own iMac workstation for the entirety of the course.

SEMA’s tutors are all artists in their own right, and are active in the East-African and global music landscape. We understand what you want to get out of the courses. SEMA utilizes Project Based Learning, an approach which inspires as much as it frees you from the traditional classroom environment.
