Please have realistic expectations, there is homework and your progress depends on how hard you work. It takes many years to be a competent producer, what you put in is what you get out. The goal is to teach you how to stand on your own so you have the tools to start on your journey, step by step, I can help to get you on your way, but talent, practice, passion, and drive are all you. So bring your A-game because we will work hard and have fun doing it.

We understand that things can happen in life.
For Single lessons, you are allowed to reschedule once so long as you give 24 hours’ notice.

We can arrange to Reschedule you for a future session when available.
We do not give refunds. To give the best experience to my students, seats are limited to 4 per month and there is a waitlist. Much time and preparation goes into this and for this reason, we ask payment to be paid in full 48 hours in advance or earlier for a single £200 lesson as your fee guarantees your seat to save you from disappointment and having to wait another month!

I use/teach Ableton, this means I can NOT teach you how to use logic/cubase,etc, only Ableton. production/plugins are transferable in most Daws, so even if you use another DAW, I can help you.
Everyone is different, so I create individual lessons to fit your specific needs.

Can I Try Ableton for Free?

Yes, you can! All info is here
Initially, you can download the free demo a couple of days before your first lesson, the demo is for 30 days. It’s the lite version, meaning not fully stacked, but enough plugs in/instruments to get your going before you go all in.

Can you teach me how to DJ?

I can help with DJing questions regarding the industry but I do not teach one on one djing as that requires in-person tuition with multiple formats (diff gear/controllers etc) I am not set up for that, everything I teach is online.

How it works

I use stream yard/zoom/private Facebook/YouTube group to teach each student.
For mentorship, if it’s talking only, we use Zoom.
For production, it’s streamyard directly into a private Facebook /YouTube page for each student.
You get a download of your lesson shortly after as I will send it to you via we transfer ( you are the only one to see it) then it’s removed from the facebook page.

How much Homework is there?

Realistically, you should try to recreate everything I showed you in the lesson the same day and no later than the day after if possible. This is because we forget 60% of what we absorb after 2 days. So once you receive the download of your lesson, watch it again and repeat what you learned if you can. Repetition is similar to scales on a piano, It’s the ONLY way to become fluent as a producer by practice.
You should be comfortable with what you learned so we are ready to move on to something new for the next lesson. You can go at your own pace, there is no pressure, it’s just a recommendation as it’s your time, your money, we can go as fast/slow as you like.

Why don't you teach mastering/how can I complete my tracks?

I outsource all my mastering because years of playing in clubs equals loss of hearing in certain frequencies for me. You do not have to do everything yourself.
For masters I use Dean:
