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.

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.

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.

Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

I have problems understanding English literature very often because I am not a native speaker and Tom helped me with patience understanding English literature from context, background of the author and writing habits. Through his instructions I can finally appreciate the beauty of English literature like I appreciate the literature works in my mother tongue. From Shakespeare to Mark Twain I travelled through ages and time when I read, think about and ponder upon their masterpieces. Most importantly I am able to understand them, and it feels amazing.
