ableton 1 on 1 lessons - Let’s get it
self expression can be easier
I have been playing jazz and rock guitar since I was twelve and have always had r&b, jazz, hip hop and blues booming out of the stereo systems in my childhood home. I always gravitated towards making music that moved people, and now that I have figured out how to do that, I want to help you do it too.
Throughout my journey, I have done a lot of work to get to the point that I am at now. I have never had doubts that this is what I want to be doing, but I did not know how to get there, and had times where I was asking myself ‘Is this what I really want?’.
I had no one to answer the question for me and no one to guide me to what it was I wanted to become. I wanted to express myself FULLY through music but did not have a mentor or any guidance, there was no way for me to know my strengths or weaknesses. I opened youtube university and scrolled through every possible Ableton video there was. The interesting thing was, most of the videos repeated many things already knew. If there was one thing I could take away, it felt amazing but looking back, I know that the whole process would have taken half of the time if I would have had someone to review my music and give me consistent, sincere and exact pointers of things to work on to become a better producer.
If you are here, you know that there must be a better way to learn production than looking at a million videos that aren’t necessarily directed to you or speak your language. I've been through them all and want to save you hours of wasted time and effort.
It took me way longer than I thought to be able to express myself fully through music. I am still getting there, but it brings me a lot of joy to know that I can make the process easier for others. With individually tailored programs and a dynamic approach, I believe that I can get you to the next level in production. We will be listening and reviewing the music you make, having fun and learning how to implement techniques the right way.
