Recording techniques, input and output, audio theory, plug-ins, compression, EQs, multi-tracking, noise reduction...

What's it all mean? What is it about?

I've recorded on many formats and programs over the years, from a pocket tape recorder, to a 4-track, to digital workstations, to PCs with everything from MIDI to USB to Firewire interfaces.

I have recorded drums, guitars, bass, vocals, keyboards, pianos, harmonica, clarinet, tap dancing... just to name a few.
I can show you how to get the most out of your equipment and how to master what to do effortlessly, without the dreaded "killing the vibe" once things get rolling.

I can show you how to pick out the right microphones, then where to place it, rig it, and take into account sound absorption/reflections. Noise reduction, isolation, gain, equalization, and theory can be discussed. I can help you find materials and even software to create a better recording environment.

I can give tips on playing live or being ...

Nathan is an excellent teacher. He is very clear in his explanations and helped me to better understand guitar chords, strumming patterns and fingering. He gave me several exercises to work on in the coming weeks. I am looking forward to my next class.

Recording vocals and instruments with Ableton Live

About Heinrich

I was one of the first 4 Ableton certified trainer's world-wide and have been re-certified several times since. I started the first US Ableton curriculum at the legendary Dubspot in NYC, where I was also teaching for 8 years, both in the physical school and online. i've been teaching Ableton at

Heinrich was hands-down one of the best music instructors I've ever had. He has such a celebrated history as a producer and engineer, yet he still remains humble in the teaching environment with his students. He also adapts to specific learning styles and knows how to get through to you if you have difficulty with a particular topic or module. He's also a geuine, great guy - once you are his student he has no problem helping you or giving you advice long after his course is completed. To this day my brother and I still consider him a friend and a mentor. Highly highly recommended!
Andrew
I learned Maschine and Native Instruments MK3 from Heinrich and he knows his stuff!!! He is very patient and very supportive. He is one of the few official Maschine experts who are available to teach.

Maschine is not easy to learn but Heinrich tried to simplify topics into something easy to understand. He was open and flexible to my learning style and how I wanted to approach my lessons. That's the biggest benefit to private lessons with Heinrich!

I read the review by Cezanne about Heinrich not having enough interaction with students and that was not my experience. In fact, I felt sometimes I got too much time with him (sorry Heinrich, sometimes you talk a lot haha!). Don't get me wrong, the things he had to say were very valuable, I can just be too eager sometimes to move on from a topic so that's really on me and not Heinrich. Any time I had questions, I could text him and if it was too much to text back, he would call me right away.

Heinrich is also very chill and relaxed when it comes to working with you to find a good time to meet up for a lesson.
Kate
Lots of experience and takes an interest in student's music. Heinrich has helped me with some very basic and critical Ableton techniques!

Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Perfect. He matched his lesson beautifully with the music I like and how I am likely to learn quickly. Could not ask for better.

Perry knows his stuff! His instruction and book have helped me become a solid drummer. I look forward to learning more from this talented musician. Thank you Perry!

Didn't think online drum lessons would work, but they do and I am thrilled I found Perry as my teacher! His Drum Control book is the perfect guide and I am improving with every lesson. Thanks Perry!
Gerry
Returning to drums after several years, I found that the "Drum Control" book Perry created and wrote really cleaned up my technique and got me going again with the essential tools I needed. I can't believe how easy it was with this great book. The combination of his teaching and book got me rockin' in no time! Perry is a real pro and knows what he's doing. I am learning from the best! Thanks Perry!

"Consistently Amazing

As a student/client of over 15 years, I have experienced the instructor to always be exceptional. He listens to his clients/students and works to ensure that their needs are being met and that they are satisfied with the services they receive.
Distance isn't a barrier and never has been one! Kenneth has been able to accommodate my recording and instructional needs while I've traveled all over the country! Having a dependable instructor/service provider has been the key to our long standing business relationship and I would recommend Kenneth to anyone needing the awesome services his company provides."
