Given the challenges we are facing, being locked up at home and social distancing, what better way to make the most of our time than by taking some online lessons?
Take advantage of this precious time and learn to produce electronic music and DJ'ing !
I've already been successfully teaching my students using video conference software like Zoom or even Skype.
In a nutshell, I can share my screen with you while running the music software on it, so you can see and listen to what I do and say (including the music that comes from my computer).
All you need is:
- Your computer. With a webcam, a microphone working properly and with a steady internet connection.
- Your preferred music software to either DJ or Produce music. (I teach Rekordbox, Traktor, Ableton Live or Logic Pro. Even if you don't have the software I can help you get it ;)
- Video Conferencing Software installed. I prefer Zoom.us, but we can use Skype as well.
- A pair of headphones is a must.
I'm offering the first lesson free so we can meet, show you how it works and even help you making sure everything is properly set up.
Let's do this. Get in touch now to arrange our first online meeting!

So you want to pursue your passion for Music Production and DJing? It's really not Rocket Science. It's actually so much fun, but it does take time to get your head around it and achieve greatly finished products.
I will help you assess how to achieve your goals and teach you different ways to get there.
Let’s work together until you get your DJ Promo Mixes or Your Own Tunes Professionally Finished so you are totally happy to show them off and start going up the ladder.
Either as DJ or Producer, you don’t only need your talent but also to be able to get out there and show your work to industry people. This is also 50% of the work and I’m happy to show you the ways to get your tracks signed and get gigs.
It takes dedication and practice. But together at my studio, I'll make sure every minute will be a productive one, so you walk out of it with much more knowledge every single time.
We can start right from scratch and also work on your own tracks if you already have started some songs.
I have quite a wide music taste so we can work on whatever style you are into.
Let's figure out how much you already know, what you want to do and jump into it.
Using either Logic or Ableton as DAW, we can cover:

Perfect! Already seeing improvements in my technique after 2 sessions. Pablo was able to explain clearly and share his experience and knowledge of mixing with turntables. I recommend him to anyone that is interested in taking DJing to the next level. He is also very fun to have around and flexible with times. Thanks!
Perfect! Pablo has been fantastic so far and I'm sure he will continue to be so. I really like his style of teaching - it's encouraging but stretching and always with the bigger picture in mind. He knows the industry well and has a lot of value to add not just on the technical skills he teaches but also in guiding your development as a musician. I can thoroughly recommend!

Perfect! I highly recommend Pablo to anyone looking to learn how to DJ or update their skillset. Pablo is extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable tutor who has a passion for teaching. He really took the time to progress me through our lessons and helped me to sharpen my skills. Especially he helped me a lot to come up with some new ideas to make my mixing more interesting. Thank you so much! I really enjoyed it!
Ana is great. I'm very happy she's coming to London to take lessons with me all the way from Kent. She's very passionate about DJ'ing and dreams of playing in clubs, which we are working on and I'm sure it will happen! Always happy to have you as a student. Thank you. Pablo.
Pablo is a brilliant teacher and I would highly recommend him. The classes have been very fun and inspiring and my confidence has increased a lot with electronic music production since I have been tutored by Pablo.
Again, I would highly recommend! :)
