Writing, Recording, Mixing & Releasing your music from start to finish in Montreal

Methodology

To cut a long story short, I believe in teaching by doing! In this course, you will be tasked with writing, recording, mixing and releasing your music! If you already have some basic ideas to start that's perfect. Otherwise we'll work on that first idea together.

Based on your knowledge, whether you're a complete newbie or possess some knowledge in one or some of the above areas, I will shape the course to equip you with everything you need to become a one-person music making machine! I produced some of my best work by diving right into the process, faced with deadlines and an end goal in mind.

In my course we will use one of the following DAWs of your choosing:

REAPER
Pro Tools (only offered to students buying a pack of 10 hours)
Ableton Live
Logic Pro X

Our first lesson will be a meet-and-chat and a quick inventory of your skills and gear. Based on how advanced you are, we will start from a lesson that suits your needs.
