Private Ableton Teacher

I have worked every day with Ableton for the past 7 years, recorded, produced, and mixed hundreds of songs in many different genres. I know the program extremely well, and love to teach people how to take advantage of this powerful tool.

About Nick

I've been teaching voice, piano and guitar lessons for fourteen years, and I love it! It's an enormous joy and privilege to be asked to help others in their musical journeys. I take my work seriously, but it's a pretty great job.

I am easy going and friendly, and when people come to me I try to understand exactly what their goals are. Some students thrive with a highly technical approach; some thrive in a less formal, more supportive environment; most do best with a mix of the two. I welcome students of all ages and levels.

I have a bachelor's degree in music from UC Santa Cruz, I've released two full albums of original music, and I am a founding member and producer for the bands Glamour Pony and Bygone Pecan. I've performed professionally in NY, LA, the Bay Area. My students have performed at clubs and concert venues, studied at sc

hools such as the Conservatory of Vocal and Instrumental Arts, Oakland School of the Arts, and UC Santa Cruz. And several have made beautiful, original recordings of their own. I enjoy working with children and adults alike.

​My Priorities as a Music Teacher:

To facilitate an experience of music that is gratifying, challenging, or some combination of the two (depending on the student).

To discover what styles of music most interest a student, and to help them to cultivate the tools necessary to sing/play in that style.

To work with the student to figure out a practice routine that makes the most sense for their lifestyle and their musical development.

To encourage students, when they're ready, to bring their skills out into the world (through performing groups, choirs, open mics, recordings, videos, etc.)

To continue to learn about the student every lesson, in order that my instruction may be most effective to his/her progress!

Nick is awesome! He has been working with our two young sons, ages 9 & 7, for close to a year now and they have made tremendous progress. He is especially skilled in meeting them where they are at, whether they are tired or unfocused, or have too much energy, he is always willing to listen to them and find an access point into their world of child-like creativity. He also asks them what songs they are into and even has transcribed the songs for them so they can learn their favorites. A real good mix of formal training and teaching to the individual child. Nick is, above all, patient and kind. The two best qualities any teacher can possess. I can not recommend him enough to parents of children, or anyone for that matter. I might even sign myself up in the near future!

Private Ableton Teacher

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.

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!

Arsen
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!

Private Ableton Teacher

The main goal of an Ableton class is to be able to effectively use all the tools that you are given to achieve your specific goal. Each student will have a different idea of what they want to create with this software, and its really important to be able to remove the technical obstacles and get straight to the creating. I will enable each student to be able to better visualize their projects, and I will train their ears to be able to better listen to sound such that they can understand the specifics behind creative decisions. As a producer you have to take both microscopic and macroscopic views when it comes to a piece of music, understanding how both a small sound can affect the progression of a story though music, and how the story itself unfolds over time. This can all be done through practical training in Ableton Live.

About Aashray

I am a professional pianist/keyboardist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with a Bachelors of Arts in Music & Technology.

With my diverse background in both the technical and creative arts, I will be able to help build a foundation of musical knowledge that will allow students to explore areas from theory & performance to production and innovation, all with a musical focus.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. My background is mainly in Carnatic (South Indian classical) music, which I have been playing on the keyboard for 15 years now, but I have been playing and performing jazz piano for the past 8 years as well. I have been performing with my band, "In the Works" for the past 2 years in the NYC area, and I also play with another band that performs oft

en in the tristate area, so I have a lot of experience with live shows that I can also offer. I specialize in teaching students to read and play contemporary & jazz music using chord sheets, but more importantly, I can help you attain a deeper level of understanding of the music that most piques your interest, allowing you to tackle any challenging

My teaching style combines theory, piano, composition, and production to give students a more comprehensive understanding of music and how they can find their voice within it. My personal passion is contemporary music but I feeI that any musician can benefit from guided study, analysis, and practice in all different genres and styles of art. Making these connections is where I feel I have the most impact with my students, and I look forward to meeting and growing as musicians together!

Private Ableton Teacher

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. I currently teach music production and synthesis at IO Music Academy in Hollywood.

Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.

She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.

Scott is amazing! He helped teach me the basics of Ableton, over Skype. I was coming from Logic and needed a quick course. I learned how to have a faster workflow and tons of cool shortcuts! Also he is a very chill guy and easy to get along with. I highly recommend Scott if your looking to take your music production, and mixing/mastering skills to the next level.
