About the lesson

Hi there. Please feel free to browse my personal details, if you would like to ask any further questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialise in electronic music composition, production and performance and the technologies association with alternative forms of dance music and other electronic music genres.

I am most fluent with Logic Pro, Ableton Live, Max/MSP/Jitter and the theories and concepts that are associated with these tools. Tutorials can be suited to your requirements or can be guided depending on what you want to learn.

I am also fluent in the following software applications

• NI Komplete, MetaSynth, Cubase, Nuendo & Reaper.
• IRCAM's AudioSculpt, Diphone and Forum Studio software.
• BIAS Peak, SoundHack, Sound Forge, Audacity.
• Final Cut, Modul8, Arkaos and VDMX VJ software.
• A good knowledge of most Audio Unit and VST plug-ins including Waves, Sonalksis, Audio Damage, iZotope RX, PSPaudioware, Ohm Force etc.
• Mac OS and Windows operating systems.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated with a degree in Sonic Arts in 2001 and have just completed a PhD in acoustic music composition with a focus on creating multichannel compositions for performance over large diffusion systems. I also gained a Post Graduate Cert. in Higher and Professional Education in 2007

- How much do you charge?

£20 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I am equally capable of teaching in my home studio or I am happy to travel to you.

- When are you available?

Evenings during the week and on weekends all year.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

My background is in undergraduate and postgraduate level teaching which means I am ideally suited to teach students who are progressing through an undergraduate music technology related programme up to postgrad level masters work. However, I am also able to tutor younger students through the transition from A-Level into undergraduate work which can often be a challenging and rocky progression.

I am also keen to explore the more practical uses of technology that the older student might be more keen to learn.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am currently teaching up to postgraduate level so I am able to prepare students for all kinds of qualifications from A-level right through university to masters level and beyond.

I have been teaching music technology and creative music technology at undergraduate level since 2004 and masters level since 2010, so have a wide range of teaching at a variety of levels.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No, I do not work with children or vulnerable adults in my university so do not require one.
