Learning something new can be a daunting idea. Especially with something like music. There is so much to learn! So much amazing music out there already. “How could i ever shine in such an established industry” The answer is simple, by being yourself. By concentrating on original ideas you can rewrite the rule books.. This philosophy is at the heart of my tuition.
My courses focuses entirely on writing music and the creative process. I like to think of my teaching as more practical than academic and more creative than technical. My aim is to get you writing tracks that sound amazing with unique flare and originality.
My courses are split into 2 main groups:
Introduction To Production - For complete beginners
Advanced Techniques - For more experienced producers
We can tailor the course structure to your needs but to get the most from my tuition i recommend 10x2hour lessons.
After our initial consultation, which will establish where you come from musically, what it is you are trying to achieve, what experience you already have etc. I can go away and create a structured course that will challenge you and bring out your best music.
Below are some examples of the kind of modules you can expect in the Introduction course:
Chosen DAW Overview (Ableton/Logic)
Pre-Producing Your Tracks
Basic Music Theory
Recording and Working with Audio
Basic Synthesis and Sound Design
Arranging Your Track
The more advanced course is much more tailored to your needs, one of the advantages of 1-2-1 tuition. It can be structured to focus deeply on one particular area of the production process or be used to introduce you to different techniques.
As a producer, I have been releasing music commercially for around 18 years, mainly on the major Drum and Bass record labels such as Metalheadz and Hospital Records. I have also written 3 well-received albums and been involved in many collaborative projects.
Over the years I have worked in countless different studios and practiced a wide variety of different production techniques which has put me in a great position to teach!
As a teacher, I have a wealth of experience behind me. My first position after completing my teaching diploma was at London's leading music production collage Point Blank where I was their 'Introduction To Ableton Live' course tutor. I am also a regular tutor at various different studios in London.
I am as passionate about teaching and sharing my expertise as I am about producing music. I find it deeply rewarding to watch young producers develop their identity and their sound. Music is such a personal thing, so it's always so interesting and often really surprised to listen to how each student adapts the knowledge you have taught them.
My students can expect to walk away with much more than just textbook music production skills. I take great pride in nurturing young producers and helping them find their feet in the music industry. I will provide help and advice to them with everything from what equipment to invest into what record labels they should approach and will continue to mentor them long after their course is finished.
Dynamic and charismatic music tutor with over 18 years experience working in the music industry as a record producer and DJ. Extensive knowledge and experience working with students of all ages, both in the classroom and on a 1-2-1 basis. Patient, understanding and empathic, I am the perfect candidate to deliver your syllabus effectively and achieve excellent results.
