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!

I have two degrees from Berklee College Of Music. One in Electronic Music Production / Sound Design, the other in Music Production & Engineering. I have worked with many styles of music wether it be recording, mixing or mastering. Being a electronic music producer also gives me the unique perspective of song form and song writing to help people bring their ideas to life. I am highly proficient when using Ableton Live and Pro Tools. Having worked in audio post-production for a few years now has also given me a lot of experience in working with visual mediums and recording / editing so that the audio and picture sync up appropriately. I can get your working really fast during sessions and give you the confidence to trust your ears!

"This spring semester started off very stressful, but after getting James to tutor me for my music business class it have been a big relief. My grades started going back up and the biggest accomplishment of them all is that I passed my class with a B+. “Thank god out of all the teachers on takelessons.com I chose him.”

James is very caring and understanding and most definitely knows his stuff when it comes to Music business. He really cares about his student’s and really wants to see them win , even when he’s not on the clock with you at the moment he randomly sends you helpful tips and interesting reading files that can help you along the way to become a success artist. I will most definitely keep him around while I'm on my Musical Journey ! and If I were you I would too."

"Consistently Amazing

As a student/client of over 15 years, I have experienced the instructor to always be exceptional. He listens to his clients/students and works to ensure that their needs are being met and that they are satisfied with the services they receive.
Distance isn't a barrier and never has been one! Kenneth has been able to accommodate my recording and instructional needs while I've traveled all over the country! Having a dependable instructor/service provider has been the key to our long standing business relationship and I would recommend Kenneth to anyone needing the awesome services his company provides."
