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 work! 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:

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

Our first lesson will be a meet-and-chat and a quick inventory of your skills and gear. Based on thate, we will start from a lesson that suits your needs. You can take the full course or stop at recommended checkpoints or simply choose the topics you feel you need. In my course you will learn:

If you wish for me to travel to you, that could be arranged, but I would charge extra for transportation based on your location.

If you wish to learn Pro Tools, I will only accept students who book lessons in packs of 10 hours or more.

I need to be notified of cancellations and rescheduling 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, it would count as a lesson. This is to help me manage my time, make extra time slot available to my other students, and hopefully will motivate you to keep practicing regularly!
