My first lesson was extremely productive. I am an adult student and hadn't played in many years and Max focused on techniques to help me with my weaknesses, and to quickly surpass the level of playing I was previously at. He is patient, encouraging and an excellent teacher.

About Daniel

What style do you want to play? I love to play it all. I mean it. So whatever moves you, we can work with that. I've played orchestral to hip-hop fusion, religious ceremonies to wine festivals, in motown, salsa, and funk bands, and with a jazz trio in a literal cave. So--it's up to you! *Lessons

Daniel is patient, kind and incredibly talented. He is so knowledgable and passionate about music, you can't help but be excited to learn! A fantastic teacher, highly recommend!!!

Thank you Daniel!

Daniel is a great teacher. His background and knowledge on Music Theory is phenomenal and helped me take my playing and writing to the next level.

Highly recommend!
Camille
I really like Daniel. His love for music is infectious. As a teacher, he's patient, crazy smart, and easy to be around. He's also a deep thinker, which makes him really good at using simple analogy to help me understand complex concepts. It's a fun way to learn. TBH I was very surprised to leave lessons not just having learned new ways of thinking about music, but also about myself, and how I can start moving out of my own way. I recommend Daniel without hesitation.

Hi, I'm Nathan, and I'm going to be teaching you how to do everything from make your own music, to producing music for other people, using Ableton Live! I have eight years of experience in music production, with the majority of that time being in Ableton Live. I can teach at any level of music production skill in Ableton Live, so no matter if you are a beginner or even at my level, I can still give you my advice and experience through my courses. I can either do one on one lessons with you, or group lessons with other people, depending on what kind of environment works best for you. I can teach through any online platform including Zoom, Discord, Skype, etc. I prefer teaching people ages 14 and up, but am not opposed to teaching younger. Everyone is different and I can accommodate for that.

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.
