Whether you’re an absolute beginner who knows nothing about electronic music production or you’re an old skool producer who needs some new tricks up their sleeve, I can help you out on your journey.
I can accommodate to your needs and questions, that means we can work in a linear way or jump from topic to topic. While reading books is a great way to learn, you cannot get the feedback you need to improve, nor do you get the hands on approach that makes learning easier and solidifies the topic better.
I won’t waste your time with topics that do not deal with your style, everything you learn will be dedicated to the genres you are interested in. Do not worry about what DAW you use, the information you will learn can be used in ANY studio with ANY software or hardware and you will learn the differences between the two.
My rates are reasonably priced at $25 an hour. You can be in studio (must show vax card) or on zoom so I am flexible with out of town students.
If you set up 4+ hours a month I will throw in an extra 30 mins free per month for song feedback or however you want to use it.
