Each course is conducted by mentors handpicked by Jorge and promise to aid you in your musical growth of “mastery and manipulation”.

Held in The One School campus on Paseo de Roxas, CoSA’s sound producing classes currently focus on helping their students master the Ableton Live software as a primary medium of creation, stressing the “purity” of their conceptualized sound put across as “efficiently” possible.

Offering courses in both the technical side of music making, such as Sound Design and Mixing and Mastering, as well as in marketing and artist development, CoSa holds the philosophy that “in the core of every living being lies the soul of a creator”, which each CoSA course is just waiting to help awaken.
