Music Technology Graduate offering lessons to all abilities (in my home studio or will travel)

Methodology

Music technology is a very nuanced area, students often have a wide range of goals and skill levels in different areas. I try to find a balance between the most useful techniques and the most engaging practices for that particular student, to keep you engaged and enthusiastic.

Background

I am a producer and performer of electronic music, examples of my work can be found by googling "Sam Hostettler Opaline"

I have a recent DBS/CRB check (basic disclosure - August 2018), I can send a copy of this upon request.

I graduated from a Popular Music degree course at Goldsmiths with first class honours. For me, this focused on electronic music, in terms of technical skills, compositional techniques and performance as well as critical analysis in the form of essays.

I received an A* for Music Technology at A Level and I received full marks at A2. (2012)
I can say with confidence that I have all the knowledge and skills necessary for A Level and BTEC Music Technology and beyond.

I am also very happy to teach students who are not preparing for a qualification and just wish to learn about writing and recording music with computers and other music technology.

I have been using music technology for the last 14 years and am very proficient in the most recent versions of Logic Pro and Ableton Live, I also have some knowledge of Pro Tools, Cubase and Reason.

I have excellent knowledge of synthesisers and all manner of synthesis techniques as well as audio recording and processing techniques.

Perfect! Sam is en excellent teacher and very happy to share his amazing production skills you. He's able to explain complicated things like synthesis and routing in a very simple and easy understandable way. Really happy about what I learned so far.

Sam's response

Franziska is a pleasure to teach, she is punctual, enthusiastic and engaged.

E-man

Excellent! Very knowledgeable in synthesis, creates all his elements from scratch and able to reproduce sounds using stock plugins. Sam's finished article sounds excellently mixed and his insight has been very beneficial in helping me explore several techniques I might have previously glossed over. Would happily recommend anyone to give Sam a lesson or two to see how he might benefit you

Sam's response

Eman is an engaged student, he has a clear idea of what he wants to learn.
Sometimes a little hard to pin down in terms of times/dates
Overall a pleasure to teach.

I was Sam's Lecturer across multiple modules for his Undergraduate studies in Popular Music at Goldsmiths, University of London. Across the three years of Sam's degree, I found him to be a very able student both academically and in his creative practice work, and was unsurprised at the end of his time with us to see that he achieved an excellent final degree result.

As a learner, Sam was independent, thoughtful, patient, self-motivated and very committed, and I have no doubt that these characteristics would serve him similarly well as a tutor. During his time at Goldsmiths he also showed himself to be responsible and caring for his fellow students, with an excellent work ethic and a clear sense of priorities.

I have been Sam's university instrumental tutor for live electronic music performance since 2015 during which time he has developed his craft as a producer and live electronics performer to great effect. Sam's progress as a musician is evident in his composition and professional level of technical ability which is showcased in his creative blend of software programming, hardware control and synced modular synthesis, all elements combining to what is now a distinctively individual musical identity. Sam could offer a great deal to a student who is looking to begin exploring the areas of music technology outlined above.

Sam is totally trustworthy. He is a calm and considerate teacher, who knows how to motivate the learner. He can identify the next step a learner needs to take and present that in a manageable way allowing the learner to keep moving forward and feel proud of their achievements.
