Part of our contract states that you are liable for any copyright infringements within your work so make sure you only use samples you have permission to use.

Student Testimonial

"I had never believed that one academy could teach me to become a producing artist from scratch (making music I only dreamed I could produce); open-up gigs in iconic venues such as Ministry of Sound and Egg and places such as Ibiza and Warsaw; help me to release my debut record on an independent label; provide me with a network of DJs and industry professionals across the UK; and help me to take my DJ skills to the next level with the latest equipment and technology. This is the unfiltered reality of LSA and for anyone looking to further their music career, I couldn’t recommend them enough."
