University level professional musician offering Music Production tuition in London (All Levels)

Methodology

I am a professional music producer. At its simplest, music production is the careful creative process of capturing and showcasing the raw recordings of a track, arranging them in the sonic sphere in such a way that a listener can truly connect with the artist's intention. More complexly, it can build an intriguing world of sound around the core songwriting elements through synthesis and sound design, extra recorded or MIDI instruments, field sounds, and piles of SFX and plugins such as reverbs, delays, pitch shifts, EQ's, compressors, distortions, and more, surrounding the listener with energetic aural intricacies.

I can teach all of this and more to my music production students, beginning with the basics of how to use music production software and how to put sounds together, leading through to how to lead and create successful fully produced and mixed music projects.

Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Iona Catherine will plan your first lesson with care.

Experience

I am passionate about music with degree-level expertise in songwriting & composition, recording, mixing & production, film scoring, and folk/pop violin. I possess significant practical and theoretical knowledge of these areas, and a deep understanding of how music works, curated through 15 years of musical endeavors, culminating in a 1st Class Hons BMus Music degree from Goldsmiths, UoL.

I am happy to combine these areas as relevant to student interest. I absolutely love teaching and look forward to taking on more students. I am very enthusiastic and work hard to ensure the best tuition experience including a personalized lesson plan for every session and taking on feedback.
