Devin is an excellent and knowledgeable teacher! He taught me the basics of Ableton and the details of music production, recording audio/midi tracks, sound libraries, effects, etc. He guided me through the songwriting process, and made this complex software easier to navigate through and understand. I highly recommend Devin for anyone interested in enhancing their skills in music production. Thank you Devin for all your help!

I've been producing in Ableton for about 3 years. I know my way around the program and have no problems executing ideas. Whether your problems are trying to figure out the layout (don't worry, it took me a while too), or getting your mix to sound cohesive, we can work through it together.

About Mesrop
I am a music lover. I love anything and everything that is music. It has been one of the most consistent things in my life since I was a child, and there's nothing that makes me happier than making that a reality for someone else.

I've spent a lot of time studying with different musicians, such as Tigran Hamasyan, Ben Wendel, Ari Hoenig, Adam Benjamin, Josh Nelson, Vardan Ovsepian, and many other amazing musicians. I've also spent a lot of time studying different genres of music, which is why I'm capable of teaching almost any style of music.

I believe in designing lessons around each student's goals and needs, so every student gets a personally tailored lesson plan that will help excel them into being an amazing musician. I believe that great music teachers leave lasting impressions on their students. I wish to impart on my studen
ts the same lessons and experiences that have influenced me throughout my journey.

I have been wanting to learn piano for some time, and was recommended to Mesrop by a friend. He has been very patient with my pace of learning, which isn't always the fastest, and introduced concepts in a really logical and digestible way. Great guy and teacher, highly recommend!

I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

I was struggling with my Music Appreciation class and I really needed extra practice. Mesrop was really patient with me, and helped me throughout the semester- even at inconvenient times of the day. Passed with flying colors! Thank you!

Music Production

About Dylan
Hi! My name is Dylan T., aka Dyluxe, and I'm available for in-home, in-studio, and even online music lessons worldwide! I offer tutoring and mentoring on electronic music production with Ableton Live software, Ableton Push Hardware, and other software plug-ins, as well as DJing on the professional standard Rekordbox software with the Pioneer CDJ 2000 Nexus DJ system. All lessons are taught on a one-on-one basis and will be customized to your specific needs. Whatever your knowledge level or ability, I can teach you anything from the basics of electronic music to advanced production, engineering, and mixing techniques. My innovative hybrid curriculum will teach you to both create and perform your own original music. I have a complete in studio set up with all of the premiere tools you will need to achieve your goals. My goal is to help you
expand your knowledge of electronic music and DJing so you can bring your artistic visions to life.

I am an Ableton Certified Music Producer and Graduate of Dubspot Electronic Music School with a degree in DJing and Music Production. I also have a Bachelors Degree from San Diego State University. I am currently a resident DJ for OMNIA San Diego & Hakkasan group as well as an Internationally Touring DJ. I have performed at over 300 nightclubs, music festivals, and events worldwide alongside artists like The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Dillon Francis, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Steve Aoki, & many more.

Aside from my DJ career, I have a ton of experience teaching and working with children. I have always enjoyed teaching people and helping them to reach their goals. I started out at a young age as a babysitter for family friends. In high school, I took a job managing a local skatepark and giving skateboarding lessons. Once I moved to San Diego to attend SDSU, I took a side job as an activity leader for Harmonium, an after school program for elementary school students. During the summers, I also managed and taught skateboarding at the local YMCA Skateboarding Summer Camp.

Anyways, after I started to excel in my music career, friends and acquaintances started reaching out to me for advice and information. Ever since then I have been tutoring, mentoring, and helping my peers learn how to DJ, produce music, book shows, boost their marketing & much much more. I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve your goals!

My son (a beginner) loves his lessons, and talks about his next session every time. My worried son was so nervous for his first lesson, but Dylan put him at ease, and then proceeded to start from the beginning, giving my son the much needed confidence and began at the beginning with set-up, getting to know him, explaining the software, and was so down to earth; and gave him the one-on-one, a person could only dream of. He is an A++ teacher with a resume too long to list. I highly recommend him and I hope to meet in person one day... (Dylan is the Best DJ for any level, and his way to break it all down is phenomenal!)- -----Thank you --- ****** A+++ ****
