Former Dubspot instructors Max Wild and Nacho Isa have led the new project, bringing on other former instructors John Selway, Abe Duque, Cândida Borges, Brent Arnold and Adam Partridge.
343 offers classes in music production, Ableton Live, songwriting and music theory, audio mixing, Logic Pro and synthesis for producers. DJing and live performance classes are planned for the future.
