I am a singer/songwriter that has performed all over the country and I would love to share my expertise with you. 18 years experience performing and 5 years experience teaching. Before moving to Los Angeles I taught at the award-winning Area Stage Company in Miami, FL. I have studied classical piano since the age of four and more recently studied jazz and pop/rock playing under award-winning performer/educator Daniel Strange at the Frost School of Music. I have also studied vocal and composition under Dr. Ana Flavia Zuim (music director for Hamilton). I want to cater to whatever you are passionate about because I believe the best way to learn is to be excited about music! 10+ years of songwriting experience. International radio play. Certified ASCAP songwriter. Winner of 2011 International Smashtune Songwriting Contest. Finalist in Kauai Music Festival Songwriting Contest. Winner of "18 in America" Songwriting Contest. Finalist in 2013 GrammyU Amplifier Center Stage Contest.

If you are ready to start taking your music skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows! Feel free to browse my official website for a full list of credits. Want to learn to shred guitar? Produce beats? Write your own songs? Dive into theory? Record yourself? This page is the one stop shop. Feel free to reach out with any requests or questions!

After 20 years writing, recording and mixing mine and other people's music, I know these skills inside and out and can share valuable secrets you won't learn elsewhere. I can help you to find a style within the technique and create your own sound while staying within the actual needs of your recording process.

From establishing signal flow to setting up your home recording studio, to knowing which microphones to use, to using the right plug-ins, I can guide you through the massive amount of details, and help you find the particular rig you need and then help you learn to use it. I am a music producer, and own a professional recording studio from which we can operate.

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.
