  • Daniel Kelly

    ” The lessons in Music Production and DJing that I undertook with Doug, not only provided me with the necessary skills to do well, but also the confidence to push myself and apply for Music college in Berlin. Since finishing with Real Sound I have received nothing but their continued support and would encourage anyone, no matter what skill level, to listen and learn from the Real Sound tutors. Real Sound helped shaped the path I am on today. “

  • Natasha (Variant Electronic Records)

    “ If anyone is thinking of taking lessons in Music production and DJing I would suggest they check out Real Sound – led by the man himself Doug Cooney.
    Real Sound’s tuition was crucial in helping me to accomplish my goal of releasing an EP and taught me a myriad of valuable mixing and production techniques in Ableton. ”


  • Dave Redmond (Sweat Lodge Agency)

    ” Real Sound is a comfortable learning environment with excellent tutors. It’s always important to be able to ask questions openly and with Real Sound you can certainly do this. Its a fantastic idea that offers face to face education for a broad range of programs. Two thumbs up! “
