About Paul
You might not always notice it, but music is all around—from the stereo in your car to the music piped in at department stores. And you also may not be aware that music has a wide array of impacts on your health: Studies show that music has a strong effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information. And if you’ve ever played an instrument, studies show that you’re already ahead of the curve. Playing an instrument is a great way to test out your creative thinking and push your brain to process information in a new way. Whether you’re listening or playing, a little music can go a long way. I am here to help you realize not only your playing potential, but guide you into not ju
st becoming a guitar player, piano player, but a musician. I am able to teach Piano, Guitar, Music recording from software/hardware to MIDI, including Sonar, Reason, and related software.

I have studied music at California State University San Bernardino, where I minored in music and learned the immense possibilities of the music field. Music is part of my everyday life, and its an honor to know I can play music but also create it. My goal is to show you as the student how to realize that dream.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very friendly, fun and patient instructor. I believe that when you take any type of music lesson, it should be to have fun. With fun, passion, and dedication, sky is the limit. The curriculum I like to use are the most simplified forms to teach an instrument. It's about playing smarter, not harder. I do offer recording sessions to my students to track their progress, and give you a copy to keep as memorabilia.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Bergman Upright Piano. Fender Acoustic/ Gibson Electric. Marshall Amps. Digital and analog Recording Station.

*** Specialties ***
I have basic knowledge of classical works, but my emphasis is in modern rock/ Alternative. I like teaching the songs you like to hear from The Beatles to Green Day! I love all music genres and if I have not heard of the song you want to play I will learn it so that I can teach you!

I am currently a resident DJ at OMNIA San Diego. I can provide dj lessons for students at all levels. Lessons will be given on the interntational club standard Pioneer CDJ 2000 dj system at my studio. Subjects will range from basic set preparation and mixing strategies to advanced fx and a variety of other djing techniques.

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!

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME INSTRUCTOR

My son (a beginner) loves his lessons, and talks about his next session every time. My worried son was so nervous for his first lesson, but Dylan put him at ease, and then proceeded to start from the beginning, giving my son the much needed confidence and began at the beginning with set-up, getting to know him, explaining the software, and was so down to earth; and gave him the one-on-one, a person could only dream of. He is an A++ teacher with a resume too long to list. I highly recommend him and I hope to meet in person one day... (Dylan is the Best DJ for any level, and his way to break it all down is phenomenal!)- -----Thank you --- ****** A+++ ****

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!

Was very informative and clear in his instruction. He taught me about compression, some eq lessons, and other basic skills in ableton in a single lesson. 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.

DJing is both a technical skill and an art form. I will teach you both. Over the course of many years and many house parties, bars, clubs, festivals, I have learned how to set a mood and move a dancefloor. I can share with you the insight I have gained along my journey.

About Mark
My name is Mark Farry. I am a DJ, music producer, and sound healer based in Portland, OR. I have been producing electronic music for 12 years and DJing actively for 3 years.

My history includes: operating a music blog in 2008 riding the wave of electronic music's popularization, co-founding an online community of house music enthusiasts in 2015, hosting a weekly radio show at KPSU in 2016, launching a podcast focusing on storytelling through melodic house & techno music, and more recently organizing music festivals in the PNW region. I have played in low-light bars and on elaborate festival stages. I have written music to dance wildly to and music to meditate calmly to. I have played music to friends at home and I have played music to strangers in a foreign country. I seek to share the insights I have gained along my journey.

Much
Love!

Mark is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and friendly to work with. He has been helping me mix music in Ableton and I am very excited about what we have created. Mark is quite articulate about music which allows us to thoroughly examine the different sounds and elements in a song to better understand what we like and what could be improved upon. I recommend him as a teacher to students of all ability levels and am excited for us to continue working together.

I am a professional DJ with a qualified teaching background. I have developed a solid curriculum that will set you on the right path to get the most out of your time with me. I have taught at other top DJ academies in Los Angeles and am active in the LA underground house and techno scene.

The curriculum is designed for students of every level and allows you to move at your own pace. Time is valuable so I always make sure the students have a clear understanding of what they need to have ready before coming to the lesson so that we can maximize the time we do have together.

I have over 15 years of experience DJing on Vinyl, Serato, and CDJ's as well as controllers and have performed at many major festivals including Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightning In A Bottle, Kanegra Beach Festival in Croatia and am regularly playing in and around Los Angeles. I take great pride in my teaching skills and have mentored many artists who have gone on to make some good names for themselves. I ...

About Joshua
I am a professional musician that has been playing instruments since I was 8 years old. Over the years I have learned how to play many different instruments including Clarinet, Trumpet, and Saxophone. While in college I taught myself how to use turntables and to DJ and never looked back.

I have a degree from UCLA that ultimately took me into the teaching world where I was a high school science teacher for 7 years. During this time I was also DJing and building up a career with that as well. I did the typical djing my friends house parties and college bars which eventually led to me getting an opportunity to perform at Coachella in 2011. Additionally I have played just about every major venue in LA and have always been very active in the dance community in Los Angeles. Beyond Coachella, I have also had the opportunity to perform at sever
al other festivals including Lightning In A bottle 2 twice, Electric Forest twice, Genius Loci fest in Baja California, and a few other boutique festivals in California and Colorado. I also have experience on the international scene as well. Having lived in Ibiza for a summer, I credit this time with really giving me many of the tools I use as a DJ today. Having the opportunity to interface, connect and play with so many DJ's and to have their mentorship while I was there was invaluable. That ultimately led to an opportunity to spend some time in Croatia where I was invited to play Kanegra Beach Festival with several of my heros including Matador, Stacey Pullen, and Kevin Saunderson.

When Im not DJing/traveling I am the co-owner and label manager for Los Angeles Music Project. A record label and collective of DJ's that regularly perform in LA and elsewhere. We have been in existence for 6 years now and continue to be a major contributor in the Los Angeles house and techno scene. I am also the lead in Southern California for a silent disco company HUSHconcerts that produces DJ events across the country.

I have spent the last 4 or 5 years mentoring several different producers and Dj's helping them learn their craft and achieve the goals they have set out for themselves. I spent almost 2 years as an instructor at one of the top schools for DJing in LA Garnish Music Academy and been asked to do a couple of workshops for some other schools including Point Blank and I/O Music Academy. I really feel fortunate that I am able to share this talent with others and hope that you will find me a good fit for your DJ instructor needs.
