Private Music Recording Teacher

I've been teaching Music Recording and Production for over four years. For beginners, I utilize the software Audacity on PC and GarageBand for Mac to teach the basic underpinnings of a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). We learn how to record, play with a software instrument, mix, cut, splice, copy, paste, and use basic effects for recordings and productions.

For intermediate music recording and production students, I utilize Logic Pro X for Mac and Ableton Live for Mac and PC. We learn how to utilize MIDI instruments; edit and arrangement techniques, user-created key commands; automation; mixing; and creating a final mix for mastering.

For all students, we also learn how to use microphones for vocal and instrument recording. We'll learn sound damping, portable vocal booth utilization, and acoustics.

I'd love to help you begin your journey on music and audio engineering! I can't wait to get started.

Milton is an excellent instructor! He is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. The guitar curriculum he uses is very good. I have prior musical knowledge in piano, and Milton knows when I need to be challenged/need extra work and when I can breeze through exercises on my new instrument. Lessons are really fun and I always look forward to them. Highly recommended!

Will is a great teacher. He's friendly and makes it easy to learn. I would highly suggest him as a teacher.
Keagan
When it comes to arranging and composing music, I sometimes feel like I fall short as a musician. I usually have a multitude of ideas and some sections written in my head but I struggle with piecing everything together in a coherent way, luckily I have had the pleasure of knowing Will for a number of years, and thankfully he has helped me in this area time and time again, and the finished product is always better than the initial concept. He has a remarkable capability to recive musical ideas from others and weave those ideas into a final arrangement without straying far from the initial ideas. Like I said, I've worked with him a couple times in the past and I'll work with him again every opportunity I can, because the quality of his work and the final product is always remarkable.
David
Will helped me learn the structure of guitar chords and scales while answering any questions that I had when beginning guitar. Throughout my lessons he gave me information about chord diagrams and scale diagrams while putting an emphasis on a guitar's fretboard layout and individual notes. This knowledge allowed me to progress and learn even more about how to properly play and enjoy the guitar. The instruction was done objectively, with attention to detail, and was a great experience.

I also look forward to learning more about musical programs and production thanks to Will.

I typically use Garage Band and have a professional recording mic, plus access to the best engineers and studios in the Twin Cities. We can get the material ready and do the preliminary work and record some great takes!

**Several of my students like to post on Sound Cloud, You Tube and upload into their individual social media to acquire more fans and promote their shows!

Here are a few great tips to create your best recording, enjoy!

1. Make sure the singer is well rehearsed, physically comfortable, and under no psychological pressure. Most singers perform best standing up in a room that has a comfortable but not over-warm temperature. If they are distracted by other members of the band or by hangers-on, send everyone but the engineer (and producer, if you have one) out of the studio.

2. Take time to get the vocalist's headphone mix right, and give them a little reverb to help them sing more confidently. If you can rig up a system which allows vocalists to adjust their ...

"My son learned how to effectively play in a band

My son has been taking guitar lessons from Tim for over a year now. I have been very pleased with the progress my son is making. Tim makes my son feel very comfortable, and is more than willing to work with him in any area where he shows an interest. Tim is personable and patient.

Tim is quite flexible with time. He has kindly worked around our schedule whenever necessary. His fees are quite reasonable, and he always errs in our favor in regard to time.

Tim is a great guitar player himself with a true love for the instrument, which shows in his teaching. He was invaluable in helping us pick a reasonably priced, yet quality guitar for our son.

He has taught our son any song my son hears on the radio note for note a real gem.We are quite pleased with Tim's teaching, and highly recommend him."
