I starts by gaining an understanding of my students current level and identifying the areas that need the most work. If the student already has an idea of where they are struggling (for example with EQ or creative flow), I can also start there. I will always demonstrate the techniques I teach by showing how I have used them in tracks that have had commercial success. I also offer long term tutoring, where I advise students on the music they are making and help them with technical issues, creative blocks and mixdowns. I have several long term students who I have tutored since they were complete beginners, and they have all developed rapidly.
I am a professional music producer with multiple official releases on successful labels including Night Bass, UKF and Medium Rare. I also have a lot of live DJ experience, having been booked to play in some of Europe’s most respected clubs. Before Covid I was supporting myself primarily through bookings and supplementing my income with occasional online lessons, but since the nightlife industry remains in lockdown I have a lot more time on my hands and am looking to tutor more.
I have been producing music for over 5 years, achieving success in the last two years under the alias Hot Goods. I started on Logic Pro 9 before switching to X, and I also have extensive experience with a number of plug-ins and VST’s. My expertise is in House music, but I can tutor on any subject related to electronic music, including both technical and creative issues.
I don't have a cancellation policy. If you need to cancel for any reason, at any time, just let me know.
Upwards of six years producing music: In the last two years I have been releasing music under the alias Hot Goods, with multiple signings to international labels including Night Bass, UKF and Medium Rare. This has led to bookings in some of Europe’s most prestigious clubs, including Fabric and Trabendo.
Online music production tutoring: Around the end of 2018 I began tutoring music production online, advertising my services through my Hot Goods instagram page. I have been tutoring fairly consistently since then, allowing me to develop my teaching skills.
January 2014 - August 2017: I got into music production whilst working a full time sales job. I devoted pretty much all my spare time to learning everything I could, and also focussed on networking within the electronic music scene to make connections with established producers who could teach me more. This allowed me to learn unorthodox techniques that generally aren’t found in YouTube videos or books about music production, but are used to great effect by professional producers.
August 2017 - April 2019: Started working part time as a fundraiser for The Local Hospice Lottery, in order to devote more time to music production. At the end of 2018 I also began tutoring music production online.
April 2019 - Present: Signed with a bookings agency. This resulted in a major increase in live shows, allowing me to stop working for the Local Hospice Lottery, although I continued tutoring music online. Due to the ongoing Covid situation, and the devastating effect it has had on the nightlife industry, I am looking to increase the amount of tutoring that I do.
Definitely recommend Jonny for music production lessons. I literally didn’t know anything and can now confidently finish a track start to finish. He taught me fundamentals, music theory and how to use creative inspiration along with several other small tips and tricks. Fair price for a lot of knowledge.
I started working with Jonny last year as a complete beginner and the progress he has helped me make has been life changing. I never thought my music would go anywhere but I am now in touch with major artists and labels who want to work with me thanks to Jonny’s guidance. Any producer at any level of skill can benefit from his teaching.
