Online Music Production
Schools and Courses
You'll find below a list of online music production schools and other online music courses.
You can create a good foundation for your music business career with the knowledge offered by online courses available to you.
I have not personally attended any of these schools or taken any of these courses so I can not comment on their value in detail.
I can however say that my research shows these courses to be of a high standard, so I offer them to you here as a starting point for your own research.
You need to consider the time and financial investment required by the school you wish to attend or the course you want to take.
I have tried to include a range of different courses with the hope that you'll find one that suits your needs, schedule and budget.
Berklee Online Music School...
Yes, you can study online with arguably the most prestigious music college in the world, Berklee School of Music.
Some of the certificate courses available are Guitar, Music Production, Music Business, Music Theory, Harmony & Ear Training, Arranging, Songwriting, Bass and Voice.
You should be prepared to pay as courses at Berklee do not come cheap. The knowledge, experience and contacts you gain will make it a worthwhile investment in your career.

You may find Berklee too high-priced for your current budget in which case you can do just as good with Full Sail, which seems a bit cheaper, though still of a high quality...
Full Sail University...
Full Sail University has been active in music education since 1979 and now offer degree programs you can attend online.
You'll find programs which range from recording arts to entertainment and music business degree programs.
Full Sail seem to have gone through an intense effort to make the online programs they offer as interactive as possible.

You may also wish to consider other courses which don't require such a large investment of your time, energy and money as the above online music production schools.
Keep in mind that you will have to be self-motivated and disciplined to stick to your course because you won't have a real live instructor next to you when you study at online music production schools.
You also want to ensure you have a quiet place to study and if possible, you want to have at least a basic home studio setup to test and apply the theory you'll learn.
Please let me know should you know of any quality courses or programs for music production, performance or business.
