About the lesson
In my experience, teaching music is equal parts supervision and instruction. With that in mind, I hope to supervise and support students as they develop their own artistic voice, and provide instruction in and refinement of new and existing techniques in the student's repertoire. Each student's lesson format will therefore be catered to their specific needs after a consultation discussion in their first lesson. The emphasis at all times, however, will be on learning how to make use of the facilities of electronic music as tools for creative expression and art-making, a remit that encompasses music composition, sound arts, installation art, production, composition for film and visual media, etc.
The topics that most students will learn include:
-how to write and produce their own music
-how to work with audio and MIDI in a DAW (specialisation is Ableton Live, ChucK, and Max/MSP, but most concepts are universally applicable)
-how to record music at home or in a studio
-how to work with programming environments to create generative and procedural music
-fundamentals of music theory and sound arts as necessary
- Music Production
- Music Technology
- Computer-aided music
I am a recent graduate of the Electronic Music department at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (BMus, First Class), a multi-instrumentalist, and a publicly-exhibited digital artist with teaching experience in one-on-one and group settings. I have recorded, mixed and mastered multiple albums and EPs, and developed performance and audiovisual installation infrastructure in Ableton and Max/MSP for public-facing clients as well as for my own practice.
