Catalyst - Institute for Creative Arts and Technology 

Catalyst (formerly known as dBs Berlin) is a creative arts and technology learning institute based at the extraordinary Funkhaus in Berlin. Their courses span electronic music production and performance, audio and music production, sound engineering, film production, filmmaking, visual effects and acting.

Based on the values and concepts of progressive education, Catalyst enables students to imagine, develop and build their career, portfolio and the best version of themselves. Through collaborative ground-breaking courses based around the concept of "learning by doing”,  music and film students learn essential techniques, and skills as they gain valuable hands-on experience.

Passionate and industry-expert facilitators provide the key knowledge and tools through practice, but most importantly, empower each student to feel confident in applying these essential techniques professionally as they dive into the industry.

Why wait to create? Learning through doing and collaboration are key to the Catalyst method. Students are given the space to fully immerse themselves in each subject area whilst developing the ‘hands on’ practical tools, creative techniques, industry knowledge, critical analysis and human attributes required to pursue a rewarding and successful career in film, screen acting, creative production, sound engineering, music production, performance, technological arts and visual FX.

All of their Higher Education and Masters courses are internationally accepted qualifications, validated and administered by the University of St Mark & St John in the UK.

You are surrounded by like-minded people all day every day. This is an opportunity to work on your music, and nothing else for three years.

I would say that it is a great opportunity to meet other people who have the same passion as you. You will learn and develop a lot more in this sort of creative environment, you might get valuable feedback, and you might start collaborations. And also, I would mention the amazing fact that you as a student are given access to really good studios.

The teachers were willing to help and spend time with us until we understood everything fully, they were genuinely empathetic and that's great..everything is made readily for students to obtain; It's a music school at the end of the day so it's up to the student to express their passion and work hard.
