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. Most recently I was working as the audio engineer and studio manager for the rapper Twista. 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.

Awesome lesson, definitely excited to keep going. He knows his stuff!

Jarod is an exceptional music production teacher!

Jarod and I have been working together weekly for more than a year now. Prior to us working together I had zero production knowledge and very little musical knowledge. I didn’t even know what a MIDI was. Jarod structured his lessons initially around how to use Ableton, but to say he is an ableton teacher would be inaccurate. Jarod has in fact been an immersive teacher across all aspects of edm music production including production, song writing, mixing, mastering, audio engineering, music theory, vocal production and the music business. He possess deep domain expertise across all these topics, and teaches patiently, with humor and with an infallibly positive attitude.

Within a year I have produced a number of songs and will hopefully release one soon. I have learnt how to produce, structure and compose all elements of an edm song, much faster than if was self taught with YouTube videos.

It’s very unique to be able to learn from a signed artist who is actively releasing music. I highly recommend Jarod if you are interested in learning music production. He will be a great partner to you and friend!
Colleen S
Jarod knows how to make his clients feel welcome in his studio, he is productive with his time, gives very helpful feedback during recording, and I look forward to future in studio sessions with him.

Yah D.
Wow! Wow! Wow! This was truly money and time well spent. I went into this lesson with no expectations, rather just with the hope of connecting well with a piano instructor that was not only well versed but could ease me into being a student. Paul is a rare treasure. He exceeded all my hopes of what I hoped to gain from my lessons. I would highly recommend him for any piano student. If you're looking to be challenged, and learn any genre of music,, don't wait...book your lessons with Paul. Thank you Paul. I'm looking forward to growing as a student.

Paul has been very patient and wonderful with my 6 year old son who has just started lessons.

Hello prospective students! The most important things are I love music and I work for you. I have a bachelor's degree in music composition and a piano performance minor from the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

I teach all ages from beginner to intermediate students. Lessons are catered to the goals of each student, no two lessons the same.

For young beginners I teach rhythm and pith and focus on ways to get them excited about music.

for older/intermediate students I offer lessons on piano performance, music theory and history, music composition and recording.

I believe that my job as teacher is to help you define your goals and achieve them. I am excited to teach piano performance, music theory and music history. I also have 5 years of professional recording experience for those who are interested in recording techniques and the industry. My philosophy towards teaching is spending ample time building a concrete foundation with core concepts to then build on. Please contact me ...

Andrew teaches both my 8-year-old daughter (a beginner), as well as my 11-year-old daughter, who has been playing for several years. Aside from being highly competent, he makes the lesson stress-free, and fun for my children. We have opted, in the interim, to keep the lessons online, and Andrew has gone out of his way to ensure my girls feel engaged and excited about playing piano. I would highly recommend him as an instructor capable of handling all levels and abilities.

Great with my young kids, Andrew was easily able to hold their attention and we're looking forward to more lessons.

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …
