Urban Keys Basic Keyboards course is a 3 month programme dedicated to empowering up and coming music producers with the basics and introduction to Keyboards.

With 2 classes per week – One theory and the other practical, candidates get to sit with one of our keyboard players to learn how to approach keyboards in a simple manor.

The major highlight of this course is that candidates are exposed to all the information and knowledge our keyboard players has accumulated through-out the years in just 3 months. This will eliminate unnecessary theory and provide essential information needed for a basic study of keyboards presented fro a urban music perspective.
