Hi! I believe in teaching with a simple, engaging, practical, hands on approach, allowing you to lead the way based on where you are in your development.
I offer individually tailored lessons and sessions for creatives of any level :)
I teach concepts in the following disciplines (beginner through to advanced):
- Music Production
- Mixing & Mastering techniques, mindset & creative approaches
- Programming (of drums and MIDI)
- Sound Design
- Music Harmony & Theory
- Songwriting techniques and insight into the processes I utilise for writing, developing and finishing songs.
I can help you programme, layer and sculpt sounds, as well as help you utilise Dynamic Processors like Compressors, EQ's (Digital & Analogue) and other FX based forms of processing such as Delay, Reverb and Modulation in order to bring your ideas to life. These skills are essential for modern producer/songwriters, though In my opinion equally important is understanding your own relationship to music and how you can translate your feelings and emotions into sound.
I operate day to day from my studio in Finchley.
I am experienced in Logic Pro X, Ableton Live & Pro Tools.
I play Piano, Guitar, Bass & Saxophone and can help you on your journey towards using instruments to compose music.
My studio is equipped with different instruments which you are welcome to use during our sessions!
I want to help you get the best from yourself and will always offer honest, detailed, constructive feedback on your songs, productions and mixes.
I'm happy to provide you with written lesson recaps after our session.
For some people one lesson might be all you need. For this reason some people come to me for one off lessons and return casually on an as and when basis.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Cristian will plan your first lesson with care.
I'm an English/Italian Artist, Music Producer, Songwriter & Mix Engineer based in North London. I've been teaching for 3 years now, initially I never gave much thought to teaching, however after giving friends lengthy sessions to help them with their productions they suggested I offer lessons to others. I've grown a real affinity for helping people develop as producers and composers :)
I am actively writing and performing original music, as well as regularly collaborating on varied musical projects. I am always learning, studying and making music and I truly believe this is the key to continuous and enjoyable development. I also enjoy DJing and regularly perform DJ sets in venues in London.

I enjoy many different styles of music and have benefited from having an extensive palette throughout my musical journey so far. I particularly enjoy Soul, Hip Hop, RnB, Ambient, Electronic, Grime, Folk, Rock Blues and Jazz music. My ears are always open to new sounds and textures.
I have experience in the analogue domain recording bands (playing Jazz, Funk, Pop, Rock, Metal, Neo-Soul, Electronic & multi-genre hybrid styles) through large console desks.
The prevalence of DAW's in the last decade has allowed many great artists access to a professional recording environment using just a laptop and a few fairly inexpensive bits of gear.
I am also very experienced in recording audio, sampling, programming and orchestrating music with MIDI. I began making my truest music with a DIY mentality using the equipment I had access to like inexpensive microphones and MIDI controllers. I am competent with Sound Design and I utilise the fundamental concepts which allow me control of the envelope, colour, timbre and the texture of my sound choices.
I often successfully use Zoom for online sessions and can happily recommend these for anyone who is unsure about in person lessons due to the Coronavirus pandemic. You can share your screen with me and your direct audio output as well as me being able to utilise remote control of your DAW. Very handy and efficient for online sessions.
Online lesson or lesson at my home studio in Finchley Central: £25 p/h
Lesson at your residence: £35 p/h (this includes travel compensation)
I have package offers available for those who are interested in more than one lesson.
I have a minimum 24 hour cancelation notice. This is a respectful request.

Coming from an Italian background I love to cook and find there are many interesting parallels between composing emotive music and cooking beautiful food.
I believe in breaking down social barriers. I enjoy going to music festivals, traveling and generally interacting with people from different walks of life. Particularly spending time in my native Italy and speaking the language with others.
I enjoy following football and snooker internationally.
Languages: English & Italian

Perfect! I am on to my second pack of 5 lessons with Cristian, and I have had such a great experience and been amazed at the progress in such a short amount of time.
My initial goals were to be able to co-produce in sessions with other producers, which I have achieved (I was a complete novice before).
I am now working towards gaining more confidence as an independent producer and have already been able to take artists/writers ideas in 1:1 sessions and make them into a beat I can use as a demo.
Cristian has been encouraging, knowledgable and patient throughout our lessons and I would highly recommend him.
Perfect! I really liked Cristian's profile from the Superprof website and so didn't look around for other tutors. Luckily, I made a great choice! Cristian has helped me immensely with Logic Pro X. In the short time that we have studied together I have already learned so much about mixing and mastering and I feel much better equipped to use Logic than before when I was scouring YouTube for endless videos - these are also great - but it helps so much to have someone who can distill the information down to what you need. Cristian has a very good technique - he works with your songs and gently suggests improvements that you would have otherwise taken much longer to realise/execute. Cristian is also a really talented musician and I've been listening a lot to his music and you can see he is technically very gifted. I'm really excited to see what he puts out next and I hope I can continue to learn from him over the next year so I can develop a workflow that allows ideas to more fluently translate to Logic. Cristian is a great teacher, very thorough and accessible, and he really enjoys what he does... Definitely get in touch with him and take your skills to the next stage. Cheers Cris!
Perfect! Nice and fun lesson! Never gets bored and super friendly to beginners!
Perfect! Cristian is a great tutor, very personable and dedicated. He shares tips customised to your requirements and goals - may it be mixing tips or materials to help you expand your knowledge. Really happy to have met him!
Perfect! Cristian is a great tutor and our class helped me out a lot in understanding workflows better and to get a better grip on some of the logic pro x plugins,I totally recommend him.
Perfect! Cristian is really patient and I progressed a lot with him!
Perfect! Cristian is an amazing teacher. His knowledge and teaching methods are incredible and he makes it so easy to learn from him. Really looking forward to having more lessons!
Perfect! "Cristian is great - he has been super helpful throughout. He has really good learning techniques and always let you do all the work so you can learn! I would gladly recommend him to anyone, he is exactly what you need!"
Perfect! Cristian has great knowledge, is extremely helpful, flexible and supportive. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
Perfect! I couldn't recommend Cristian enough. Very patient and extremely knowledge with an aim to improve self sufficiency. I use logic and after two lessons I can already hear a vast improvement in my drum patterns (as a tech house producer this is extremely important), along with technical abilit. Easy going and put me at ease straightaway. Cristian set me tasks to increase my keyboard skills and as he is versatile he is able to teach me both production and musical knowledge which is one thing I have longed to learn more about. A five star tutor.
Cristian is a not only a great musician and producer. He’s also an incredibly humble guy. He has taught me how to be a better songwriter and musician, and also a better person.
Since the first time I met cristian he showed himself very kind and talented. He is very focus on details and he has a big personality.He is always ready to listen and his advice are amazing.
Furthermore, he speaks very good Italian.
Cristian is a great teacher and explains things really well. He helped me grasp the basics in no time and set me interesting challenges to keep me inspired to keep going when I hit the wall of frustration at first. I owe him a lot. Highly recommended.
We’ve written songs together, and I could easily work with him,
also in the past, Cris gave me lessons about music producing, mixing and mastering.
He is particularly good at it.
I totally recommend him.
Cristian taught me how to master and how to make sure that my projects always sound amazing. A great teacher!
He is so kind and patient with everything! You just feel at ease and supported whilst learning which I think is so important because it creates a safe environment for mistakes. And the quicker you realise what you could improve on, the more you excel in the techniques -like I did. Above all, his knowledge is amazing and I learn so much in even a short amount of time.
It is with great pleasure that I write a recommendation for Christian. He has been my teacher for a few years now. He is commended for his professionalism and quality of instruction. He plans well and works diligently in helping others achieve the fullest potential. He has the passion, intellect and communcatice skills to be an outstanding teacher and I recommend him without reservation.
I met Cristian about two years ago, and in a very short time, I was able to tell how valuable he was as a human being, as well as a good friend. We have had very good recording sessions in which the musicians feel completely relaxed thanks to his natural charm. He is passionate about music and about art, which makes him a rare kind in the industry nowadays.
Really got a lot out of our lessons, he's very patient and helped me really push on with my mixing ability. He explains things very well and makes sure you understand why he is teaching you something, as well as making sure you are learning the things you want to learn! Highly recommended
I know Cristian because I have done recordings with him and lessons on music production.
Cristian is a super good listener, he will listen to everything you have to say and find the answer to any questions or problems you would have. He is very polite and understanding. With his experience and skills, he can mold and shape your music for the better.
When we were recording with him and he was teaching us, he minded what we wanted very carefully and tried to achieve it as close as he could. Taught us very good lessons/tricks about the studio and music production and just general things about music/studio/recording.
I recommend him very much to everyone who would like an excellent music production tutor!
