About Vir

I am a graduate of U.C. Berkeley.;I have been teaching and performing music for over 15 years. I have toured the United States and other countries playing many types of music. I play Guitar and Bass, Drums, Keys and Sing   I teach in a fun style that emphasizes the students creativity.  Styles range from Rock, Folk, Electronic, Jazz,  African, World, Hip Hop to Country. I also teach production recording, looping and beat making in Ableton Live and Protools. I can give you the skills to go to the next level.  From 5-99 years old!

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson would look like this:  Depending on your level we would first work on some new chords and/or a new scale and how to play them.  We "jam" a little to get the feel.  I have a really great way of teaching theory that will get you playing what you want.  The second half we u

sually focus on learning a song of your choice or working on an original of yours. I am very personable and easygoing. Some students are more focused on electronic music, so we can work on that too!

*** Specialties ***

Vir is a gifted teacher. He has taught my son guitar for more than a year. He meets my son where ever he's at in his practice, attention and interests with calm, skilled focus and intention . Vir's background as performing musician infuses his teaching with an enthusiasm and creativity of practicing his teaching. We are truly grateful for Vir.

Vir is beyond your typical vocal coach. He was a huge help on things like pitch accuracy and phrasing, but more than anything, his focus on getting me to tap into and harness my inner power has already paid huge dividends in my recordings and performances. Further, Vir is an amazing person to know and his home-studio in Berkeley is magnificent!

I have been using Ableton for over 5 years, with a lot of experience using it in live performances as well as composition/production. I personally love ableton, I think it is the best DAW out there and definitely the one I'm most familiar with. I used it for most of my Electronic Production & Design projects at Berklee. Additionally I taught kids ages 13-18 how to use Ableton at the West End House Boys & Girls Club in Allston, MA for 2-3 years. I currently teach music production to quite a few students at my home studio, doing in-home lessons, and teaching online - my current students range from teens to adults. Furthermore, I've had tracks which I have produced (in Ableton) selected by Berklee's Electronic Production & Design Dept. (EPD) to be played for internationally acclaimed sound designer/producer/composer Richard Devine, during his 2014 seminar at Berklee. I was also selected as a finalist for a remix competition at the 2nd International Csound Conference in 2013 (for another ...

About Josh

Hi, my name is Josh Weinberg. I have over 10 years experience teaching drums & about 5 years experience teaching music production, & music theory (to all different ages). I have received an award from Berklee College of Music's Community Affairs Dept. for my teaching work in the Boston area (see photo). I graduated Berklee cum laude honors and w/ 2 degrees, Drum Performance & Electronic Production & Design. I teach a wide variety of techniques & cater each lesson plan to each student, to maximize our time together & help make the student the best musician he/she can be! I can travel to you for in-home lessons or you can come to my studio in Newton, which is a nice, isolated space where you won't be distracted by other lessons happening in the adjacent room like in some other studios/schools. In addition to teaching, I frequently performs

with bands around the northeast U.S., & have performed with internationally acclaimed artists such as Nona Hendryx, Simon Shaheen, & Richard Devine. In the past 6 years, I've performed in 8 countries - USA, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Brazil, Turkey, & Ghana.

Josh is always easy to be around and is able to form any lesson around what I wanted to do, as well as teach me loads of new ideas if I hadn’t planned anything. He has greatly helped improve my own production and give me insight into what professional producers do to set themselves apart. He’s great to work with and always in an uplifting mood.

Josh is an awesome teacher. He is patient and supportive and always comes up with ways to connect me to the concept he’s teaching. I asked to learn drums “the right way” so we spend a ton of time on fundamental exercises that i suspect are boring for him but he never shows it. He is always upbeat and positive and I enjoy our lessons a lot. Could not recommend him more highly.

Private Ableton Teacher

Berklee College of Music student who majored in Electronic Music Production & Sound Design, as well as Music Business. I was also mentored by a platinum selling producer. I love helping others and giving back the knowledge I have in music. I grew up classically trained on the clarinet. I can help you take your career to the next level by understanding audio, mixing, production, mastering, and more.

About Jarod

I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a dual major in Electronic Music Production & Sound Design, as well as Music Business. I actually learned from this site in the past and it taught me so much about music and production. I discovered the joy of giving back and teaching, and would love to pass on what I have learned from Berklee and my teachers outside of school to you. I specialize in contemporary production and engineering with an emphasis in making music that is practical and ready for radio. I can teach you all you need to know about audio engineering and production, as well as how to make your music relevant to the marketplace and heard. EDM music, hip-hop.rap, pop are my specialties, but I also can work outside of those genres. I have taught for about a year now before coming back to this site, so I am excited to meet n

ew students and pass on my knowledge.

In March of 2019, my career took off by signing my debut single to Black Hole Recordings. Since then, I have seen tremendous and continued success with my music and hope to help apply all that I have learned in the industry to my students as well.

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.

I hold two music degrees: a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Utah, and a Master of Music Technology from Indiana University Purdue University in Indianapolis, where I earned my degree online.

I'm active as a producer, composer and band leader too. I've led the Salt Lake Electric Ensemble since 2009; we recently signed with Philip Glass's record label and released our fourth record with them. As a c

Matt has been amazing. He's an absolute expert and has a great teaching style. I'd recommend him to anyone. For real, it's been awesome learning so much and he's made me a much better musician.

Matt does a great job of adapting his instructions to match where the students knowledge is currently. I started taking lessons from him after spending a few years learning bits and pieces of ableton on my own. Matt quickly figured out where I was, what I can do to improve what I've learned, and helped me make steps moving forward. No matter you're experience level I can't recommend learning from Matt enough. I leave every lesson with so much more knowledge than before that I can immediately start applying to my own work and work flow. Thank you Matt! Looking forward to many more lessons.

I have done several "music production" lessons with Matt online. He is extremely flexible, which has been a big plus for me since I live in Denver and use Studio One 4. Even though his expertise lies in Ableton, the lessons have still been helpful as a Studio One 4 user. Matt is EXTREMELY knowledgeable. He has been able to satisfactorily answer all of my questions. During our lessons, we will work on songs that I am developing. He will listen to the track and suggest areas of improvement. Rather than just telling me what to change, however, he always explains why it would be helpful to make those changes. I've already noticed that I am independently making those improvements in my songs since meeting with Matt. While I can't speak for Matt's other areas of expertise, I would highly recommend taking lessons with Matt for any production/mixing needs!

As a keyboardist, I basically live my life in Ableton Live.
I can teach how to setup Ableton, how to run midi keyboards through Ableton, how to build synths in Ableton, how to build full tracks in Ableton, how to run other hardware through Ableton, and the list goes on.

About A.J.

I've been playing piano for 27 years, and I've been a touring musician & recording artist for 15 years.

I can teach anything about any keyboard or synthesizer: piano, organ, rhodes, analog synths, digital synths, software synths, Ableton Live, midi setup, production, beat making with midi, and the list goes on.

I'm also a trained vocalist. I can teach vocal lessons, but each student has specific needs vocally, so let me know what your goals are for your voice. Recording? Live performance? Just would like to sing better, but no specific goals?

I can teach songwriting, production, arranging, and how to be in a rock band. I have a wide range of experience in the industry, so I can teach anyone how to go beyond their instrument, and develop their music further into full compositions either by on their own, or with a band.

I've ta

ught professionally for 4 years at Band Aid School of Music in Austin, Texas.

I've released multiple professional albums, and I have countless hours of experience in multiple professional recording studios, including my own.

I've toured all across the United States, Canada, U.K., and mainland Europe.

I have been using Ableton to produce, engineer, and mix my own music for the past 2 years and now use it on a daily basis. I learned my current skills from experience and 1 year of production classes at LACM (Los Angeles College of Music).

About Nicholas

Hi! My name is Nick and I have been teaching guitar, piano, and songwriting lessons for 2 years both privately and also as part of Oaklawn Music Studio in Rhode Island, and St. Maria Goretti School in Long Beach, CA. I have played the guitar for 11 years, been singing for 7, played piano and ukulele for 4, and producing/mixing/audio-engineering for 2. I moved from my home state of Rhode Island to Los Angeles in 2016 and attended the Los Angeles College of Music in Pasadena, CA to earn a Certificate in Music Composition (Songwriting) and have written over 150 songs myself. I have played several live shows around Los Angeles, Rhode Island, and Montana at farmers markets, art shows, coffee shops (among other humble venues), and have served as a session instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and engineer for numerous studio sessions around Lo

s Angeles.

Currently, I reside in the small town of West Yellowstone, Montana and work as the resident musician for a company called Under Canvas. I feel that it is my time to give back to the community and teach others all that I have learned, an experience I would love to share with you.

If you have questions about any of my experience (or anything for that matter) feel free to reach out :) I typically will respond within 24 hours.

Wonderful, patient, and passionate about music. Really helps spark an interest in passion and music for kids. So impressed with his ability to connect with his students! I really appreciated his flexibility in scheduling lessons - it made it so much easier when things came up and we needed to reschedule. Self-taught, he knows wonderful techniques and strategies to help teach the kids he works with.
