Daniel is such a great instructor. We began at home/in-person lessons for our son and Daniel immediately connected with him. He made the lessons fun and absorbable, such that we saw progression each week. The lessons went so well that when we purchased a home over an hour away, we decided to try online lessons, and everything is going just as well!
Karisa
Daniel does a wonderful job making learning an instrument fun. The kids look forward to lessons each week and he caters to their individual strengths and skill levels.

Really enjoyed my personalized lessons with Eric! He helped me with finding the rhythm in some of my original songs. He is very encouraging and affirming.

Great instructor; always prepared and patient. He works towards my goals always.
Ben
Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!

Brian was very patient with my son. He made sure he was aware of his instructions. He even guided him back to the correct path when he was unsure of the information. Great teacher!
Jaesung
Tremendously knowledgeable and able to teach complex things very simply. Everything he taught me was so much more profound and important to understanding music that I could have imagined. Highly recommend him as a mentor if one is at all interested in music.

Personal releases amassing 2.5M+ streams. Experience producing & mixing EDM, Pop, Hip-Hop, and Reggaeton. I’m an Artist, Producer, Songwriter, & Engineer. I graduated from the Recording Conservatory of Austin as an Audio Engineer and have worked with many different artists in very diverse genres. I’m a firm believer that to start your journey as a music producer, you don’t need to have a vast knowledge of music theory. As long as you know the right skills, and can work your way around a DAW, you can go very far pushing many limits. With the technology nowadays, creativity can get you very far. In 2022 we have access to so many amazing tools that give us the ability to create music that wasn’t possible in the past. Whether you’re a beginner, or have tons of experience… there’s always something you can learn. Especially with so many tools, plug-ins, tricks, and workarounds available. One thing that really helped me was learning to use these tools in ways that they were not meant to be ...

About Carlos

Since I can remember... music has always been my everything. As a kid, you grow up thinking that certain career paths are "not the right way" and that's exactly what was taught to me about music. I was born in Monterrey, Mexico and moved to the United States at the age of 3. When my dad gave me the

Carlos is one of the BEST Ableton teachers out there! I had heard of Ableton and always wanted to make music, but never knew how I could put two and two together. So I got a MIDI board and signed up for Carlos' classes and, honestly...BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!

By breaking down the functions of the program in a way that make it super easy to understand, Carlos' one-on-one lessons help you gain a better understanding of the capabilities of Ableton, NO MIDI REQUIRED! He not only shows you how to use the software to make your own music, but he helps analyze your projects with you and walks you through the way Ableton's features and components can help aide in the composition of your own work.

He also has an AWESOME home studio (which helps immensely with production and with being able to analyze the fidelity of the sounds created in class). He is very knowledgeable, very patient, and very eager to answer any questions one may have with the program and with music making in general.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND Carlos for anybody looking to learn a new skill or become a better musician/ artist/ or audio-engineer :)

A godsend. Matt is super approachable and got me launched back into playing in a meaningful way. Widely knowledgeable, he never missed a beat and was able to help with everything from details of technique to overall approach, and successfully introduce new and challenging music. When it came time to learn recording he was always ready a couple steps ahead to show efficient ways to get things done.
Alex
Matthew helped me work on pop and bossa nova songs for guitar. He is a patient and easy-going teacher who helped me at my own pace. We went over finger style techniques and rhythmic exercises. I have been enjoying lessons and I look forward to studying more with him.
Lisa
Matt is great! He is very patient and explains things step-by-step in a very comprehensive and easy to understand manner. And best of all, he never makes you feel like any questions you ask, is irrelevant or repetitious. I highly recommend Matt, and plan on continuing to take lessons from him in the future!!

"My first session with Jarod was great! Lots of great information, very focused session, and great experience in a very well put together studio. Jarod was also very welcoming and open to conversing about personal manners that influence my music experience. Even after our first session, I feel much more confident in mixing practices which I had not before. Looking forward to our future meeting and I would highly recommend Jarod as an instructor for anyone looking to improve their knowledge and practices in regard to production and mixing/mastering!"

"I’ve worked with Jarod over the past few months, and I can unconditionally say that he’s the real deal. He has an excellent command of the entire music production process and how to navigate the music industry; not surprisingly he’s now a signed artist. Unlike a lot of instructors, Jarod is a naturally gifted mentor who actually takes time to figure out and plan out the best way forward. He is willing to share any insight and experience he has with his students. If you’re thinking about learning music production, Jarod is the perfect mentor to help you get to the next level."
