Very experienced with Digital Audio Workstations and Ableton is one of my 1st favorites. You will have tons of fun with the possibilities!

About Paul
You might not always notice it, but music is all around—from the stereo in your car to the music piped in at department stores. And you also may not be aware that music has a wide array of impacts on your health: Studies show that music has a strong effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information. And if you’ve ever played an instrument, studies show that you’re already ahead of the curve. Playing an instrument is a great way to test out your creative thinking and push your brain to process information in a new way. Whether you’re listening or playing, a little music can go a long way. I am here to help you realize not only your playing potential, but guide you into not ju
st becoming a guitar player, piano player, but a musician. I am able to teach Piano, Guitar, Music recording from software/hardware to MIDI, including Sonar, Reason, and related software.

I have studied music at California State University San Bernardino, where I minored in music and learned the immense possibilities of the music field. Music is part of my everyday life, and its an honor to know I can play music but also create it. My goal is to show you as the student how to realize that dream.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very friendly, fun and patient instructor. I believe that when you take any type of music lesson, it should be to have fun. With fun, passion, and dedication, sky is the limit. The curriculum I like to use are the most simplified forms to teach an instrument. It's about playing smarter, not harder. I do offer recording sessions to my students to track their progress, and give you a copy to keep as memorabilia.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Bergman Upright Piano. Fender Acoustic/ Gibson Electric. Marshall Amps. Digital and analog Recording Station.

*** Specialties ***
I have basic knowledge of classical works, but my emphasis is in modern rock/ Alternative. I like teaching the songs you like to hear from The Beatles to Green Day! I love all music genres and if I have not heard of the song you want to play I will learn it so that I can teach you!

Are you looking to create your own music?
I will show you how to create a song from the ground in Ableton Live. Whether you want to learn how to record your own instruments, make beats, use Ableton in a live performance setting or mix your songs,

About Matthew J
I currently work as a freelance music producer as well as a guitar/bass teacher and as a music software teacher.
I have been playing guitar for 18 years and teaching guitar and bass for 9 years. I have worked as a private and group guitar instructor at several music education establishments in the Chicago, Los Angeles and in Eugene, Oregon as well. I have also worked as a band coach for youth groups, where I taught them cover songs, helped them write their own songs and prepared them for live performances.
I studied at Columbia College Chicago majoring in Classical Guitar, Latin Music and Music Theory.
I started taking private guitar lessons as a teenager for several years and played in my high school jazz band along with original rock bands. While in high school, I was able to study with popular Chicago rock virtuoso guitarist Kev
in M. Buck, where I first learned music theory and was inspired to be more studious with the guitar.

I have performed in rock/modern bands for 12 years as an electric guitarist and also for 4 years as a solo acoustic guitarist mixing Bossa Nova, Classical Guitar and original compositions into my performance repertoire.

*** Lesson Details ***
For Music Software Lessons - Logic Pro X , Ableton Live, Garageband, Pro Tools and Reason-

Topics I like to cover - capturing correct recording levels.....editing, adding effects/basic mixing, automation .....creating drum grooves with loops and midi drums..........songwriting and music theory.........Live capabilities using Ableton (for backing tracks and live performance)........Quick commands to easily navigate through software.....

For instrument lessons-
I'm a patient teacher that's passionate about guitar and helping students reach their musical goals whether they are casual players or serious musicians. For beginners, I use Hal Leonard instructional guitar books along with paper handouts and sheet music. I believe it's important for everyone to learn the fundamentals of music to create a strong base of skills in order to continue playing and learning music throughout one's life. For more experienced players, I like to teach various modern rock/pop songs, classical guitar songs, picking patterns, finger picking patters, improvisation, scales and music theory. I teach nylon string acoustic, steel string acoustic guitar and electric guitar and bass
I believe the most basic goal for a guitar student is to be able to play a song in it's entirety, whether it's by themselves or with other musicians/music students. I believe that some of the most important music skills are learned while actually playing with other musicians. It is crucial when learning an instrument to be able to play in 'real time'; playing music with a steady sense of rhythm.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical Guitar, Brazilian Jazz, bass guitar, rock, pop, blues, funk and folk guitar using method books, sheet music and guitar tablature.

About ryan S.

Franklin Park, IL

I've had to record my own band's albums for years, and have recorded a lot of local bands as well. Mixing and producing has become a huge passion of mine since the first time I learned what a compressor could do. Letting the music shine through while maintaining clarity and punch is an art that I love teaching.

About ryan
Hi, my name is Ryan and I would love to teach you how to play guitar. I've been playing for over 10 years and have been gigging for a little less than that in my band. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience performing on stage and teaching to people of all ages. If you want to shred, jam, or rock out then look no further. I okay all styles of music and pride myself in building a fun and educational curriculum based solely on you or others who have had similar interests as you. This means if you have a question about guitar or music in general, 9 times out of 10 I can answer it. The remaining tenth is either a well kept secret, or something that is left to be found. So if you're ready to start your journey or just need a guide to help you on your way, let's​ go!

Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!

About Damian
It's always difficult to talk about oneself... I have had the pleasure of working in over 23 countries around the world. In doing so, I've been extremely lucky to work with some of the most prestigious musicians, engineers, producers, and singers in the world. Having a 20 plus year career in the Las Vegas strip, I've seen every approach imaginable to production; live and in the studio!

I'm accredited on quite a few projects, two which have established the gold record mark. I've studied at the the Milwaukee Conservatory of Music, Berklee, Dubspot, and a plethora of intern type opportunities.

You're only as good as the folks you surround yourself with... Thankfully, I'm confident to say that I work with some of the best. I began playing piano with Stevie Ray Vaughn at the young age of 13, thanks to my father. My father brought me in
to the business at a very young age. He is what many would consider a blues legend! Working with the likes of Eric Clapton, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, The Beach Boys, Sonny Boy Williamson etc; thanks to him, I was given the keys to some great connections that I work along side to this day. I'm not a fan of name dropping, but if you'd like to know more details, please feel free to ask.

In showing you Ableton Live, I hope to also share the steps or takes to competing and making a real living in this business.

Never be overwhelmed... You are just as creative as the next person. It's important to learn how to take those creative ideas from your mind and bring them to reality. I hope to show you some valuable techniques that can guide you to be extremely proficient in Ableton Live... I look forward to working with you!

Whether you are a musician who is just starting to learn production, or want to learn Ableton and have previously used a different program (pro tools etc) he is the guy to help. He was very patient and went above and beyond to make sure I really understood and absorbed the knowledge he was sharing with me... He has brought my production skills to a whole new level and I can't say enough good things about his teaching method.

About Pavel
Hi, Im Pavel, my stage name is Saad:hur and I am Russian born, Miami based DJ/Producer. Driven by an Underground Music Scene (techno, minimal, ambient, acid, noise, psy) , I have spent the last 6 years establishing myself as an artist and producer in Miami that led to a spiritual quest around the world combining spiritual knowledge and experience. The result is a psychedelic blend of mind body and spirit translating to an unstoppable force of artistic expression. For you there is a chance that i will be much more that just a music teacher for you.
Because i believe, that music doesn't come from "Math" or knowledge but rather for your Higher Self, Inner and Outer Energies of the Body, Pure Conciseness that takes on filtering itself through a lense of a musician. I definitely could share some of the secrets of how you can be a little more i
n touch with a subtle inner nature of your self, that at the end makes you a better being and professional musician overall.
