In a 121 class, I teach by wanting the student to be as hands on as possible. We'll look at technique first with demonstrations, following by switching over to see the student applying the techniques to their own work.
You'll be required to have your own sessions that you we can work on, and you'll need to set up your system to allow screen sharing and audio sharing through the app.... help will be given!
I've been a full time professional musician and recording engineer for over 25 years. I have a 1st class Degree with Hons, a higher diploma in Audio Engineer from School of Sound Recording, I'm a certified Expert in Pro Tools. As well as consistently working as a Producer, Engineer and Musician for the last 15 years, I also teach audio engineering at Degree level with Academy of Music and Point Blank Pro School. I also train audio engineers in Pro Tools on behalf of Avid. I have produced course materials for both AMS and PB schools, with students across the country and the world using my material to learn about audio engineering.
I will help you NAIL your degree or diploma in private lessons taken over Skype or Zoom with lessons that can look at everything you'll be required to do to obtain a commercial level mix (for the Distinction criteria) including compression technique, EQ, limiting, effects use, sub grouping, 2 buss processing, mastering and advanced editing techniques that professional engineers use on a daily basis to produce commercial quality productions.
We'll also look at business technique and philosophy - probably more important to making your own business and making yourself employable in a packed market.
Written reports are also tutored on - with checking and tips prior to submission - helping you develop the skills required to earn the Distinction you want.

Dave is a world class tutor and operator of Pro-Tools , an excellent music producer and brilliant all round vocalist and musician. He delivers a very high quality service.
He's patient and hugely supportive both to those learning their craft and those who are more experienced. Dave also makes sessions rewarding and fun !
As a singer songwriter I’ve recorded two albums of original songs at Dave's White House Studio in Southampton. These songs have won International song contest awards and been played over 25,000 times worldwide via internet radio. I am currently recording a third album with him.
As an ex-BBC TV programme maker I was also fortunate to work for nearly 30 years with the UK's finest professional broadcasters . I regard Dave Phillips as someone worthy of the same level of respect and trust I had in them.
Dave is not only a great person and friend, he’s a fine Pro Tools instructor. I did my 110 course with him and his knowledge and teaching skills helped me pass with flying colours.
I can’t recommend Dave enough!
Dave is a great tutor, takes care to explain the lessons clearly, answers any and all questions and really escalates my learning.
