I always start by talking to my learners to find out exactly what they want to achieve in their lessons. Everyone learns in different ways, so I adapt my teaching style depending on the learner and will always demonstrate the reasons behind any process so my students feel confident using their new skills in their own projects.
Over the years, I have worked with a range of music production and DJ hardware and software, and understand how to teach the universal skills that translate across these different formats. Whether you want to work with music hardware, make music electronically (in Ableton Live, Logic Pro, or Pro Tools etc.), or DJ with a laptop, CDJ's, or vinyl, the skills that underpin all of this are the same.
I've been working in the music industry for over 10 years in live sound, radio, recording studios, night clubs, events, and festivals both in the UK and abroad.
I graduated in Leeds with an honours degree in Music Technology and am now a full-time DJ and Music Producer.
I currently DJ all over the UK, hold a monthly radio show on KMAH Radio in Leeds, and produce music for use in my own DJ sets.

Tom Mann (AKA Tom Langur) is an avid record collector, producer, and DJ currently holding multiple residencies in Leeds.
Tom has always had a foot in the doorway of the music scene in Leeds. Since graduating with an honours degree in Music Technology at Leeds Metropolitan (now Leeds Beckett), he started working in live sound and studio recording, gaining first hand experience mixing music live and in the studio. Here Tom learned to produce and mix a range of music from vocalists and songwriters to big band and electronic artists. From there he went on to manage stages at festivals in the UK and abroad, working with some of the most seasoned artists in the scene today.
After working in live sound and studio recording for a couple of years, Tom took to DJing and began working with a bunch of local brands - playing at some of Leeds most iconic venues (Belgrave, Canal Mills, Mission, Church, Freedom Mills, and more!)
Tom now holds residencies throughout Leeds, hosts a monthly radio show on KMAH Radio, and continues to work with many local brands (Superfriendz, Genre Music, Paradise Discs, Revolution Bars, Spectrum, Northern Contemporary Collective, and Paradox Orchestra) and continues to produce music to use in his DJ sets.
