Experienced Artist & Producer (with BA Hons Creative Music Production - 1st Class) offering production and composition lessons in London

Methodology

Hi! I believe in teaching with an 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
- Layering
- 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. In my opinion these skills are essential for modern producer/songwriters, though 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 Guitar, Bass & some Keyboards and can help you on your journey towards using these 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.

Experience

I'm an English/Italian Artist, Music Producer, Songwriter & Mix Engineer based in North London. I've been teaching for 2 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 many 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 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, 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 digital & analogue samplers 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.

Perfect! Christian is a very open and thoughtful tutor and he is keen to tailor the time to your needs. Highly recommended.

A
Alison

Perfect! Cristian is a really enthusiastic and great teacher. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of production and music making. He is a supportive mentor to my son whose ambition is to be a music producer. He always listens really carefully to what my son wants to get out of each lesson and shows a genuine interest in my son's music. He follows up lessons with an email of links/further information about topics covered. My son loves his lessons and always learns lots more about production and is motivated to make more music. His music making has developed a great deal since starting lessons with Cristian. I would fully recommend Cristian. He is a really generous and warm person and a gifted teacher.

Tyler

Perfect! Cristian is an amazing tutor. He has great knowledge of software, theory and is excellent at sound selection.
He even creates his own music as well which is great!
I went to him for some help with one of my own tracks, which he definitely helped with and gave me a lot to think about and work on.
He doesn't just teach you things but actually gets you to think about why you are making certain decisions when mixing is concerned.
Although I went for an extended one-off session, I will definitely be returning at some point in the near future!
Genuinely a great guy.

Perfect! Very knowledgeable about mixing and production. Friendly and explains things very well! Christian also shared with me different materials on topics that I need to learn more about and that was very helpful.

Dimitar

Perfect! My experience with Cristian was great! He is very patient, kind and professional. He would really listen to my ideas and would do his best to help me achieve them. Now I simply asked him to mix my music from now on. Would recommend to anyone!

MX

Perfect! I would 100% recommend Cristian, he is a well-mannered, well-spoken, talented and professional producer and engineer. It was a pleasure to have my first lesson with him and I am looking forward to many more. 5 Stars and all thumbs up

Susan

Perfect! Christian is a super cool tutor with a clear method of explaining complex matters and making it fun. I really enjoyed my 2 hours with him and shall be booking him for regular Logic Pro coaching. He is interesting, engaging and friendly. Added to that he sent me a full recap of our lesson in Word doc with screen shots from Logic. What more can one wish? Huge recommendations for a talented musician

Ben

Perfect! Cristian was very friendly, very easy to work with. I'm not a beginner, I needed help on something specific, he knew how to adapt, and he shared his knowledge and skills. I will definitely call him again. If you wanna learn, Cristian is your man.

Thomas

Perfect! Cristian is a wizard! He got me understanding Logic Pro and music production in a very short amount of time. On top of that, he is a super cool guy with a great manner and very intelligent about his subject matter. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of music and music production and has a genuine passion for teaching which shines through. He is a top tutor. I would definitely recommend him and be happy to work with him again in the future!

Cristian's response

I look forward to seeing how Thomas progresses!

Luca

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.

Aron

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.

S
Serena

Cristian taught me how to master and how to make sure that my projects always sound amazing. A great teacher!

Vesa

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.

G
Gabriele

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.

Diego

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.

Lily

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

Arnoldas

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!
