I eat, sleep, and breathe music production! I'm an up and coming music producer who has had music featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds playlist as well as for films and television. Being a beginner in Ableton Live can be intimidating but I'll help you crush through any difficulty. I can customize our lessons to any style of music you want to make. Time to jam!!

I am brand new to music production and Scott broke everything down very easily for me. He also gave me great recommendations on starter kit equipment to purchase that was not too expensive.
Aidan
I had a good time with Scott as my coach and first time playing on a drum set! I hope to continue more lessons and maybe do some studio work later.
He showed me basic techniques that I could understand and practice with music. I am happy that I met him.
Jeff
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.

I have known Jake for several years and have worked with him as a singer on many occasions. He is a consummate professional and takes the voice and musicality very seriously while still bringing his joy and passion into everything he does. I would certainly recommend him as a teacher to any student, as his high level of knowledge, artistry, and dedication to the craft are a good lesson for us all.

Learning or perfecting skills can often feel intimidating and challenging at times. In each personalized lesson, it is my goal that you feel encouraged and appreciated for the unique singer or learner you are. I will give you the tools you need to become a confident and composed performer and to reach your goals as a student. I will provide fun and interactive exercises that help you master the basics of breath, posture, tone, diction, and the foundations of musicianship. Students will learn how to prepare a song and how to present a song in dramatic and interpretive form. Students will learn how to prepare for auditions and competitions (choral, solo, theatre role, etc.), and how to overcome stage fright and other challenges that are unique to live performance. I use a variety of teaching tools such as physical movement, imagery, and visual aids. I specialize in classical singing, musical theatre, and the jazz/blues sound. My goal is for you to enjoy singing and to meet ...

"I love music and especially singing, but I never knew how to sing correctly. Stephen has taught me how to use my voice, and sing properly to a tune. He is very proactive and has a really good ear, so don't expect him to not hear when you are making a mistake or improperly using your voice on a particular note. I have confidently began to sing songs I thought I would not sing, and have surprised myself astoundingly. If your dream is to sing well, then this is definitely the instructor for you!"

"We love Julie! I have a degree in music and used to teach guitar so I know what to expect from a good teacher. Julie is wonderful! She is organized, professional, knowledgeable and (most importantly) a good communicator with our children. Our son was never into piano lessons with previous teachers. After switching to Julie, he actually like piano lessons. Our daughter is very driven and loves piano which she has been studying for years now. Julie also excels in pushing her at a much higher level. It's nice to have a teacher who can push the advanced student as well as inspire the early student. She has even started voice lessons with our son who loves every minute of his lesson. We can't praise Julie enough. Quit looking for other teachers and hire Julie!"
