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,
I can help you with every step.

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.

Long Beach, CA

Ableton is such a powerful tool but can be a bit intimidating when you first start with it. There's an endless amount of possibilities and it can be difficult to know where to even start. I've written and produced hundreds of songs for myself, TV commercials, other artists and songs I've worked on have accumulated millions of plays online. Allow me to share my knowledge with you, both technical and creative. Let's make some great music!

About Zach
“I have a passion for music and my greatest goal in life is to share that passion one way or another.”

Zach P. started his musical journey before he could speak with his father starting his ear-training as a toddler. He’s taught all levels of guitar, piano and voice for several years. He graduated with a Bachelors in Music and Mathematics from Cal State: Long Beach and the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music. He’s performed in various groups for nearly two decades, headlining in venues across the US such as The House of Blues, Hard Rock Hotel and others. He’s written and recorded songs that have received hundreds of thousands of streams, were used in major network commercials and placed on national top 100 radio charts. He's worked with artists like MAX, Gnash, Jim Keltner (The Traveling Wilburys, Bob Dylan) and Fred Tacket (Little F
eat).

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is unique, so I create a unique lesson plan to fit the interests and ability of each my students. My main focus while teaching is creating a safe and fun environment for my students. While learning a musical instrument or skill requires a fair amount of technical knowledge and discipline, it should also be fun and engaging. You won’t practice if you don’t like what you’re doing! I like to give students tools that allow them to be creative and play around. This gives them an opportunity to naturally develop their own unique musical voice which technical study and practice will only enrich and expand.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument and amplification if needed as well as teaching materials like books, staff or tab paper, and pencils. I expect students to provide their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock and pop music, in the broadest possible definitions of the genres.

I first got to talking with Zach back in 2015, I had been looking for an accomplished musician to play at my husbands birthday party. He did not disappoint! ! Everyone was very impressed with his music style and professionalism. Through that connection we got to talking, and I also learned that he teaches music all over the south bay! Years later now in 2019, My 16 year old son had been wanting to take electric guitar lessons, but we had not been finding a good fit with a teacher. My son is very smart and artistic, however struggles with a mild learning disability. I reached out to Zach, and we discussed giving it a try. Zach is very patient and breaks up the music information in a way that is very understandable for my son, and is hands on pointing out the best techniques to help him excel, and stay engaged. My son has been taking lessons from Zach once a week for a few months, and I cannot believe my sons progress!! He actually enjoys learning the guitar and is feeling very inspired to continue to learn more because he is learning to play all the songs he is interested in. MY son is now teaching me how to play some new songs..I am thankful to Zach for empowering my son to unlock his musical ability and keeping him interested in learning in a stress free environment. Zach although very professional, he is a relaxed teacher, and very relatable to young people, teens and young adults which I think makes lessons fun! I am very picky about who teaches my kids, and Zach I would say checks off all the right boxes!!

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 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.

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

My BA from the Berklee College of Music focused on using Ableton as an Industry Standard DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), and using it to produce music in a way that fits you and your style. Lessons on Ableton focus on how to use the program in all aspects, as both recording and production software.

About Eric
MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

Parker definitely knows Ableton and production really well. He came up with a plan for me, which is something I don't see from other instructors. Other instructors just wing it through each lesson. He is definitely fun to chat with during the lesson and seems really down-to-earth. He's also helped me develop as an artist, so if you need guidance, he can help. He's active in the industry, so he can help connect you with other talented artists. As someone who's making a living in the music industry, he is always hustling from gig to gig, so you might need to be a flexible in lesson scheduling.

Parker has such a great ear, which is the most essential part of audio engineering. He has taught me countless ways to improve depth, clarity, and loudness in my mixdowns. He is well-rounded as an instructor and able to articulate even the hardest lessons. He is the perfect instructor for a beginner, and even an expert. Give him a go if you're looking to improve your music!

Never got lost or overloaded, and still use all the information I learned from him on a daily basis. Highly personable and has a calming work flow. Definitely reccomend.

Even if you've never touched Ableton before, I will get you creating right away :) As a self-produced synth-pop artist under the moniker mini bear, I have experience teaching at both beginner and advanced levels. Having taught one-on-one in various environments, including at Apple, I have the ability to translate seemingly difficult concepts into relatable information. I have a strong background in music theory, songwriting, and synthesis, and I will show you how you can best use Ableton as a creative tool to reach your artistic potential.

About Lauren
As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech.

As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the moniker mini bear, with which I have written, produced, and released 2 EPs and 1 full length album. Illustrating a sound rich in 80s referenced romantic nostalgia, mini bear has garnered praise and recognition from respected media such as Grimy Goods, Impose Magazine and international indie press. I am currently an active performer in Los Angeles, and I have played at local venues such as The Echo, Resident, The Hi Hat, Bootleg Theatre, Moroccan Lounge, and The Satellite.

My role as a teacher has grown over the span of 10+ years. As a Creative
Trainer at the Apple store, I taught customers Logic Pro in both private one-on-one and workshop settings. I have also taught workshops on Ableton topics through Play Like A Girl and IO Music Academy. In addition to teaching adults, I have taught music production and Ableton to children ages 10-15 at Girls Rock music camp. I have been producing in Ableton Live for the past five years, and I provide consulting sessions to determine work flow efficiency. Content and teaching styles are customized based upon the learners skills and learning styles.

As a keyboardist, I basically live my life in Ableton Live.
I can teach how to setup Ableton, how to run midi keyboards through Ableton, how to build synths in Ableton, how to build full tracks in Ableton, how to run other hardware through Ableton, and the list goes on.

About A.J.
I've been playing piano for 27 years, and I've been a touring musician & recording artist for 15 years.

I can teach anything about any keyboard or synthesizer: piano, organ, rhodes, analog synths, digital synths, software synths, Ableton Live, midi setup, production, beat making with midi, and the list goes on.

I'm also a trained vocalist. I can teach vocal lessons, but each student has specific needs vocally, so let me know what your goals are for your voice. Recording? Live performance? Just would like to sing better, but no specific goals?

I can teach songwriting, production, arranging, and how to be in a rock band. I have a wide range of experience in the industry, so I can teach anyone how to go beyond their instrument, and develop their music further into full compositions either by on their own, or with a band.

I've ta
ught professionally for 4 years at Band Aid School of Music in Austin, Texas.

I've released multiple professional albums, and I have countless hours of experience in multiple professional recording studios, including my own.

I've toured all across the United States, Canada, U.K., and mainland Europe.
