What time are the weekly mastermind / small group sessions via Zoom?

The Group Masterminds on Zoom is scheduled for every Tuesday from May 5 – June 23.

Exact meeting times will be determined once the group is finalized and all the time zones are considered for the best meeting time. 

Am I a good fit for the program?

We are seeking artists, producers, musicians, performers, DJs, or engineers of all shapes and sizes, but the process and course can be demanding for creatives that do not have a basic understanding and proficiency with Ableton Live software. You will need to be prepared to commit at least 3-5 hours weekly, be curious to incorporate technology & newfound creative techniques to enhance their live performance, and ready to take some risks. 

Every artist that joins the program has their own unique set of goals, intentions, motivations, aspirations, creative blocks, and limiting beliefs. The only things we require for you to start The Transmute Accelerator is your willingness and determination to invest in yourself. 

What do I need to prepare before taking the course?

1. At least two original tracks with ready-to-go stems. (If you don’t have any, we will provide some for you!)
2. Ableton Live (8 or higher, but we teach in 10)
3. MIDI Controller 
4. Your imagination 

How much does the program cost?

If you apply before March 31, early bird pricing goes for $3000. After March 31, the program costs $4000. 

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering artist grants to qualifying artists impacted by the changes for a final program cost of $2000 total. In order to qualify, apply here before March 31 and let us know why you wish to be considered. 

It’s our mission to provide the assistance and guidance aspiring artists need to grow and prosper. We’re happy to discuss a plan with you during your Exploratory Call. 

Are payment plans available?

Most certainly. We have two flexible financing options with two types of installment plans available upon request and after proper screening. Additional processing fees will apply.

You can request more information about payment plans at

(1) 2X Installments + 5% processing fee 

(2) 4X Installments + 10% processing fee 



How much time commitment does the program require?

The weekly group sessions are 1-hour each week, where all the artists tune in from around the world at the same time on Zoom. Outside of these weekly calls, artists are expected to commit 3-5 hours every week for self-study purposes (i.e. watch the video tutorials, digest the weekly lesson plan, and complete each assignment or exercise. As in most self-mastery based education, you get what you put into it! 

How many people are typically admitted in each class?

We try to maintain a cap at 10-15 artists for an intimate learning environment. This is to encourage a healthy group dynamic where we hold each other accountable and hold the space for one another to explore and grow together. The great thing is that most of the artists no matter what level of production skill has their own learning curve to conquer and has not ever utilized Ableton to this magnitude before this course. 

Do I get to get 1-1 coaching or face-time with Laura?

The Transmute Accelerator is designed to facilitate peer-to-peer learning combined with virtual learning modules with online tutorials and resources all custom-built by Laura herself. Built into the weekly run of show, Reflection assignments are your way of tracking your progress and enables Team Transmute & Laura to review your progress on an on-going basis. Questions that may arise will be addressed in real-time via Group Mastermind Zoom calls and the private Facebook group that serves as an open forum. 

The only 1-1 meetings will be at the end of Week 8 as a final closing call to review your progress and future trajectory beyond the 8 week program. 

The Transmute Ninja extension is an additional opportunity for artists to book a private session with Laura based on availability for a private consultation here

Is there a program schedule or curriculum?

What results can I expect at the end of the 8 weeks?

There’s no simple answer here. Every artist begins their Transmutation journey with personal goals and intentions, and each will develop their own results in that respect. As cliche as it may seem, The Transmute Accelerator is truly about the process, not the end result – as you will be continually evolving and elevating what you create in these 8 weeks to something you may have not dreamed was possible.
