I've done a lot of recording (see my iTunes page), both live and studio. There are lots of little things to learn that can really help a student of music.
Learn from an Internationally recognized musician! In 2008 I set two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for continuous guitar playing. I've performed at nearly every important music venue in Pittsburgh, notably: Heinz Hall, Heinz Field, the (old) Syria Mosque, The Electric Banana, Nick's Fat City, Graffiti, the Decade, the Hard Rock Café (Pittsburgh) and Stage AE.

Prior to first lesson the student will be required to fill out a short questioner. This will allow me to get an understanding of your current knowledge of audio engineering and your personal goals and interests. I have been trained by the best in some of the best studios around.

This will include acoustical physics, analog principles, microphones and microphone placements, digital audio workstations, and more.
Prior to TakeLessons my teaching experience was mostly limited to hands on time with interns at the studio I work at. I am originally from the Pittsburgh area but spent 5 years in Nashville. While there I attended Belmont University for audio engineering. During this time I learned from the best in some of the best studios in the country! I also became an assistant engineer at Sunset Blvd Studio in Brentwood TN. Since moving back to the Pittsburgh area I have been working as a freelance audio engineer out of Soundscape Studio in McKeesport. I have been loving every second of it!
