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.

If you can get a lesson with Jarod, you must! He's a true musician - it's in his blood, AND he can teach like a rockstar!

This guy loves what he's teaching, and it shows in his extra, added attention to our lessons each week. He definitely gives more than expected during each lesson. I would recommend Jarod for his knowledge base, industry experience, and passion for his craft.

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.
Casey
My 15 year old son has been taking virtual guitar lessons with Jonah and has loved it. Jonah is a great teacher who really gets on my son’s level and connects. It’s a fun thing for him to do during this strange year.

I have used DAW software as Ableton Live, FL Studio, and Linux Multi-Media Studio for several years to create original, favorably reviewed electronic music concepts. While a sizable sample of studio time has been either independent (releases on Pandora, Soundcloud, Spotify) or for multimedia, as E-Learning/Articulate360, the initial impulse was to contribute acoustic backgrounds and creative inspiration for live bands. I have released several singles and albums on Pandora, Soundcloud, Spotify, ITunes, Amazon, Youtube, and related media outlets. Additionally, my songs have been trending on multiple playlists from magazines and music agents. This includes a reader submission reward for an exemplary genre demo. I have garnered over 100K listeners and followers on various channels. Essential for a decent command of Ableton Live is to learn both session and arrangement views. We study systematically the task and the art of embedding vocals, instruments, midi, effects, automation, and ...

I am not sure how I did. The process of using voice is ok but it seems like using this process may take some time to get use to. I still have not received the review information and it's difficult to practice pronouncing the words. Babbel seems to work better with the practice audios etc

I was one of the first 4 Ableton certified trainer's world-wide and have been re-certified several times since. You can find my CT profile on the Ableton website.

I started the first US Ableton curriculum at the legendary Dubspot in NYC, where I was also teaching for 8 years, both in the physical school and online.
i've been teaching Ableton at a private music studio since 2017 where I co-wrote the curriculum.

As a long time electronic music producer I'm familiar with Logic, Po-Tools and I'm also a Native Instruments specialist, having created curricula for sound design with Komplete and Maschine at the above schools.

Over the years I worked in many musical style, from hiphop to house, techno, synth wave and downtempo bass music styles, having been an active artist/producer with major label credentials myself since the beginnings of electronic pop music while also collaborating in the studio with many artists.

I speak English, German, French and also some Italian.

Heinrich is an excellent teacher! Your study is customized to whatever level you need. He answers all questions and provides positive input. I had a very basic knowledge of Ableton and it is much improved now having studied with him. Thanks, Heinrich!
Nina
Heinrich is a great teacher and a great person!
He knows so much and is so enthusiastic and patient while teaching. He has a lot of experience and he is a warm-hearted person, definitely the kind of person you wanna spend your time with :-)
Demitri Kesoglides
Heinrich was hands-down one of the best music instructors I've ever had. He has such a celebrated history as a producer and engineer, yet he still remains humble in the teaching environment with his students. He also adapts to specific learning styles and knows how to get through to you if you have difficulty with a particular topic or module. He's also a geuine, great guy - once you are his student he has no problem helping you or giving you advice long after his course is completed. To this day my brother and I still consider him a friend and a mentor. Highly highly recommended!

Our son thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and he made a point to ask questions when he wasn't clear on instruction. I could tell this music composition was very complex (for his age) and Doug patiently worked through the questions and made really helpful recommendations.

Let's Play Music!
Many people think that learning an instrument is a long and grueling process that takes years before being any fun, but this couldn't be any farther from the truth!

Especially in this day and age with so many resources available, it does not have to take decades to reach a fun and satisfactory level of musicianship.

What you are looking for is someone who can teach you what YOU want to know.

My approach to music teaching is fully CUSTOMIZABLE.
Instead of following a strict curriculum, every lesson is tailored specifically to your goals and interests.

Not interested in reading notes? No problem.
Only want to cover your favorite pop songs? You got it.
Trying to write your own stuff? Let's focus there!

Whatever makes ...

Joy
My 16-year-old ---who had not practiced for over a year---is absolutely loving her lessons with Ms. Avenira! With only 3 lessons, I am now seeing the spark for playing the violin return to my daughter's eyes. Ms. Avenira is meeting my daughter "where she is" and truly customizing lessons to move her forward. She provides detailed updates for each lesson, and I could not be happier with my investment. Excellent teacher.
Michelle P.
Avenira really connected with my 14 year old, while our daughter has always been enthusiastic to learn an instrument, putting in the practice and the work has been a challenge in the past. Avenira's format, which allows flexibility for how the student learns best, is really working. My daughter has been practicing every night (unprompted by us), and is really excited abut her next lesson with Avenira. She also loves that she can learn both guitar and piano with Avenira, since she is interested in both. Avenira was very motivating, complimenting our daughter for being focused and for doing a great job during the lesson. Definitely would rate Avenira A+++++++!!
Ela
Avenira has such kindness! She has taught me so so much and she was the best instructor I had. She let me learn the song I wanted to learn, and I felt more passionate and confident about my singing and playing than ever. I wanted to practice more, I wanted to become better, and this never happened with other instructors.

Each time I come to the lesson with a challenge I've been hitting while messing around with the software, and after the lesson I leave with a new toolkit to not only solve that problem, but open up so many new creative options.
