I have been teaching Ableton and music production for the last 5 years. I can help you learn more about both the session/arrangement views, sound design, make beats and edit/create your own samples.

Christine
Joey is the best kind of teacher--he challenges my son and makes it fun for him. He pushes my son outside of his comfort zone, but in a good way. My son's technique and tone have improved so much. And best of all, he's really enjoying Joey as his teacher!
Suzie
Joey has been teaching piano to my 9 year old son for almost a year now. We are very happy with the relationship our son and Joey have, and with our son’s progress. My husband and I both studied music in college, and we’ve both been music teachers at various points in our careers. We know a solid teacher when we see one. Joey somehow manages to set high expectations for our son while remaining laid back and fun. He lets our son explore different types of music as our son’s interest changes. We find that flexibility refreshing and necessary to keep young kids interested. Out of all his activities, our son loves piano the most, and a lot of that has to do with the quality of teaching he receives from Joey. Speaking of flexibility, Joey has adapted his teaching seamlessly to teaching via zoom (his lessons were previously taught in our home), and even put together a lovely virtual recital for all the kids in his studio during the covid-19 social distancing situation. We heard about Joey from friends, and continue to recommend him to others.
Andrea
Joey is knowledgable and talented in his craft. My energetic five year old son looks forward to his lessons each week. Joey is an experienced teacher, his lesson structure and management skills keep my son on task and learning. He is patient and flexible. We highly recommend Joey as a music teacher. These lessons are an investment in our child’s future and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found Joey.

Day 1 of drumming lessons! David answered all my questions led the conversation and helped ease my need to be perfect! I am excited to practice the skills we worked on and excited to see where the next lessons go!! Thanks David for a great 1st experience!

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

I can help to demystify the process of electronic music production for you. The first step is to learn how to navigate the software and execute its functions. The next is to understand the basic elements of electronic music. As we move on we will learn about recording, arrangement, sound design, mixing, and more.

Mark is so amazing - I almost don't want to tell anyone because I don't want him to become too busy.
Seriously though, he's so helpful. He breaks down complicated equipment & concepts into understandable pieces.
It also is clear that he's passionate about what he does!
Love lessons with Mark!

Mark is great! Helped me understand the basics and ease into learning. He was so helpful with answering any questions I had. Looking forward to growing my skills with him!
Dan
I had the pleasure of working with Mark over the course of ten weeks recently as I wanted to radically improve my abilities as a DJ. From the moment we began, Mark and I connected over similar musical tastes, and he understood my goals that I was setting for myself.

Mark worked with me by giving me stylistic feedback and walked me through technical details that gave me the comfort to start DJing my own sets. In this era where distance learning is the norm and virtual broadcasting is getting more commonplace, the work that I did with Mark has allowed me to operate with confidence. I began doing weekly streams (which had rough beginnings!) that became were the basis for work we were doing together.

I would highly recommend someone who needs help getting started DJing and also needs someone to bounce music ideas off of as they're honing in their craft. Thank you again, Mark!

I have been producing electronic and acoustic music in Ableton for nearly a decade. I am deeply familiar with its capablilities and workflow and can teach you to feel at home inside the software.

Not only can I show you what all the devices and components of the software do, but also how to perform advanced programming to gain unlimited functionality out of your DAW.

Alex is a great teacher, willing to go at your speed. I can tell he's very qualified to teach any level of student. I'm brand new to DAW software, and I really needed someone to help me work through it from step one. Now I feel like I've got the ideal situation going on, where I work on it on my own during the week, come up with a million questions, and then I can ask him and solve my issues once a week. Very nice guy, more than worth the price of the lessons.

Sweet, sweet Ableton. How I love you. You seem to be have become an extension of my musical brain. Having used a few DAWs over the years (I was mainly a Cubase guy) I finally got the chance to create on Ableton. Much to my elation, this was through a lifelong friend and Ableton wizard Aaron Lager of MSH TH CNTRLR. We began collaborating with him showing me his many tricks. We have since started our own project and I have logged beyond countless hours behind the Launchpad and Push. Session view is the main difference between Ableton and other DAWs. I will teach you from the basics of production up through using Ableton in live performance. Prepare for a life-changing musical experience!

I LOVE to teach and I am looking for a few more motivated students online and at my home studio on Merritt Island, Florida. Lessons are fun and motivating! Beginning students learn songs that they love while also learning basic theory and instrument technique. Advanced students will have their mind

"I’ve worked with Jarod over the past few months, and I can unconditionally say that he’s the real deal. He has an excellent command of the entire music production process and how to navigate the music industry; not surprisingly he’s now a signed artist. Unlike a lot of instructors, Jarod is a naturally gifted mentor who actually takes time to figure out and plan out the best way forward. He is willing to share any insight and experience he has with his students. If you’re thinking about learning music production, Jarod is the perfect mentor to help you get to the next level."

"Matt does a great job of adapting his instructions to match where the students knowledge is currently. I started taking lessons from him after spending a few years learning bits and pieces of ableton on my own. Matt quickly figured out where I was, what I can do to improve what I've learned, and helped me make steps moving forward. No matter you're experience level I can't recommend learning from Matt enough. I leave every lesson with so much more knowledge than before that I can immediately start applying to my own work and work flow. Thank you Matt! Looking forward to many more lessons."

He’s patient, understanding and truly knows how to keep even the most easily-distracted kids focused and engaged. My son absolutely adores him (as do I!) and is progressing quickly with piano thanks to Henri’s outstanding ability to keep things light and fun!
