Reboot Your Creative Practice
Quantum Sound is an Online Artist Development Program that guides producers, songwriters, and musicians of all styles on a journey of expanding their unique sound as they create a new EP or single. This 5-day Spring Intensive is a condensed version of the full-length program, offered seasonally to refresh creative routines and break out of old patterns to support artists who might be feeling stuck and are seeking a boost of momentum.
Created by Kate Ellwanger (pka Dot), the curriculum is divided into five main modules: each one offering a guided meditation and journaling exercise on a specific theme or subject, and paired with advanced techniques in songwriting and production to support artists in elevating their music and expanding their processes.
While many schools and online tutorials teach the technical aspects of using a DAW or producing music, Quantum Sound is designed to go beyond the basic "How To's" and prepare artists for creative, spiritual, and financial success through their music.
It is Dot's mission to help artists from all over the world hone their strengths, and discover what sets them apart from everyone else making music in the digital age.
With program enrollment, you'll gain access to:
- Five lesson modules with videos
- Daily assignments to apply your learning to your music
- Downloadable PDF Worksheets
- Online office hours with the instructor to ask questions and receive feedback
- Personalized written feedback from Dot on your final song or EP submission
- Peer to peer music reviews and discussions
- Lifetime access to all materials

What Artists Are Saying
"Dot is a master of her craft and is truly passionate about helping people express themselves through music. Her step-by-step processes are comprehensive and easy to understand while providing insightful postitive feedback. Learning from Dot has been a fun and challenging experience and I highly recommend any of her programs to anyone looking to tap into their creative self."
-- Alan M, Producer, Los Angeles
"[Dot's Tutorials] are changing the horizon for me as a musician. I'm amazed at how much I'm learning, and that so much more is possible for me than I had previously thought.
Dot has a unique talent as a teacher -- not only is she massively skilled in Ableton, but she's not afraid to break down the concepts for you into super simple and clear language. I was impressed by how clear the teaching was, and how fun she made it. This program is the opposite of those production courses where the videos are mind-numbingly dry, and the teacher speaks an elitist language that you can't follow.
Dot's approach is unique in that she brings an inclusive, human element to music production -- you will feel like you are sitting with a friend while you get top-level information.
[Dot's Tutorials] are de-mystifying music production for me, and giving me a seat at the table. I think this is going to be a game-changer for a lot of other women, and I'm grateful to Dot for having the boldness to create such an awesome course!"
-- Composer, San Francisco
“Working with Kate has been the single best investment into my career.”
“Kate is a dream to learn from; she’s walking this same pioneering path of artist and producer, and this course provides insight into her unique personal process of music making. The sonic challenges and reflection exercises Kate assigns make me dive deep into the wells of my being to find the purpose underlying every choice I make, sonically or otherwise. Creating music from this place of self-reflection and inquiry has yielded the best, most exploratory and intentional music beyond anything I could have imagined. I’m so proud of myself and the work I’ve created.”
