Ableton is a unique software capable of so much! Open up your full potential by understanding what all the different screens in Ableton mean and learn how to make you own sounds with Max4Live. I am an experienced composer with music on several popular TV shows and films. Learn how to use Ableton to it's full potential!

About Eric
Music isn't just a career choice: it is a way of life. I have been playing music since I was a toddler; everything I have learned about life has been through music. I believe that self-expression is important to being confident with yourself. I look forward to sharing my passion for music and teaching with any students who are ready to learn!

I'm an accomplished composer and sound engineer with music featured on CBS, ABC, E!, Bravo, and other networks. I also write music for film & gaming. I am fluent in a range of professional software programs which includes Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Amadeus Pro, Cubase, and MaxMSP.

I have over a decade of performance experience and have played along the East Coast with several bands. Some venues I have performed at recently include The Plaza Theatre in Orlando; Backbooth in Downt
own Orlando; The Crowbar in Tampa; The Bandshell and The Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach. I am a versatile musician who primarily performs and instructs on Drums, Bass, and Guitar (acoustic and electric). I teach nearly all styles of music, including classical, jazz, funk, and rock. I have graduated from Stetson University with degrees in Digital Arts, Music, and Business.

I feel that nothing is impossible. Great results aren't given--they are earned, and I know how to set goals to reach those results. This is a virtue I like to share with students. My dedication to music has helped me accomplish much at a young age.

*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons accommodate the unique needs of the student. My lessons don't merely teach you musical theories: I will teach you how to express yourself through your instrument as you learn those theories. You will gain technical knowledge and the tools to experience your musical potential. Lessons with me are the perfect extra-curricular activity for your child, or a great experience for you. A large part of my curriculum is more than learning how to play a few cover songs. The lessons are also about becoming more confident with yourself as a person and developing character along the way. You will learn about the discipline, patience, and dedication that it takes to stand out among professionals, not just as a musician, but as a strong individual. Music is a part of that. What you play becomes an extension of yourself. Young or old, everyone has something to share with the world through music.

In a given lesson, you can expect half of it to be about the basics of your instrument and the literature for reading music. The other half is about how you can apply these principles in a unique way that relates to yourself. However, the lesson is all about the student. If the student wants to learn in different ways that is never a problem. All I ask is that you're eager to learn! Everybody has different musical tastes and different learning styles. That is what makes every musician unique and every lesson exciting.

I enjoy teaching people of all ages 5 and up and have experience teaching groups or individuals. From beginner or experienced, hobbyist or professional, every person has a place in the wonderful world of music!

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!

I have used Ableton Live for my own recording projects for about five years now. I'm well versed in using this program to record and produce music and can help students get the hang of the basics so they can use Ableton to create their own music.

About Samuel
After graduating from the University of Virginia in 2010 with degrees in Music and History, I spent several years touring and recording with artists on the East Coast, teaching as many as 20 private lessons a week, and studying tabla (Indian hand drums) to keep my own musical education alive and moving forward. I have a passion for music of all kinds, and specifically for drums and percussion. As a result of the diversity of my tastes, I have an eclectic performance background. Over the past decade I have performed with rock and metal bands, jazz ensembles, percussion ensembles, various independent singers and songwriters, musical theater productions, African drum ensembles, and even a contemporary dance company. I am excited to be living in Santa Cruz and continuing my own education as a PhD student in Music at UCSC!

Sam has been teaching our son Sam for a year now. He is an enthusiastic, focused and motivating instructor. What our son loves about Sam is that he is teaching him to play drums through the music that our son loves and relates to. This makes it that much more "fun" to learn.

Sam is always on time, very communicative, professional, passionate about drums and great with kids! We highly recommend Sam as an instructor.

Sam is wonderful drum instructor. He is very friendly and my teen son feels very comfortable around him. They worked for several months on drums and Sam even took time to listen to my son's DJ music production. Sam gave him his opinion and suggestions for improvements. We are very happy with how fast my son began to play drums only after the start of a few lessons. We highly recommend him!!!

As an adult learning to play an instrument for the first time, very little has come naturally. I had tried two other instructors prior to Derek and felt as though I made little progress with them. Derek's approach is much more intuitive and the progress more obvious. great teacher with a sound approach.

About Noah
Berklee College of Music '16 - Voice principle, B.M. Songwriting
I have taken a lot of voice lessons with a lot of different teachers. Most teachers are hard and fast in their opinions about styles that are "worthy" or "not worthy" of teaching. I am confident in the fact that learning R&B is no better or worse than learning classical music, musical theater or jazz or rock. They ALL provide benefits to the voice, to the musician. I've sung and played in a wide variety of ensembles and styles myself, from psychedelic rock to 'Singin' in the Rain' to Jazz to classical arias, to synth pop. My goal is to find music that moves the student emotionally wether it was on the radio or not. From there we can mix in exercises and adaptations the emphasize vocal/musical health, musicianship and fun. After all, if it isn't fun or cathartic, why make mu
sic at all? I also play piano, electric bass and guitar, with a degree in Songwriting from Berklee CoM, so I'm well equipped to assist young singer/songwriters.

I have used Ableton Live for over ten years. I use it for recording, producing, and live performance. There are many Ableton controllers that I am familiar with such as the Push, Push II, APC40, and Launchpad. My education comes from a self taught practice, as well as having a Music Technology B.A. from Cal State San Bernardino.

About Zen
Hi! My name is Zen.

My percussion and drum education background comes from Cuesta College (A.A. in Music Performance) and CSUSB (B.A. in Music). I have taken drum lessons with Mike Raynor, Darrel Voss, Todd Johnson, Justin Scott, and Joel Taylor. I am actively playing in a Jazz Combo, Orchestra, Symphonic Band, and Percussion Ensemble. I play many styles such as Jazz, RnB, Funk, Rock, Swing, Latin, and Hip-hop. No matter what the style is, I can give you a strong feel for dynamics, technique, rhythmic division, reading, writing, and more.

If you're interested in learning about Ableton Live, I have been using the program for over 10 years for music production, live performance, recording, mixing, and mastering. I have a Minor in Music Technology from CSUSB. I have taken music tech lessons from Scott Vance (Music Technology Professor
) for over a year. I can teach a wide variety of skill with the software (DAW). I can also teach a selection of hardware to incorporate with Ableton Live. Hardware used: Push, Push II, Launchpad, Maschine, Akai drum pads, and more.

I am very excited to see what you want to learn. See you soon!
