I perform and write regularly using Ableton, which is an amazingly flexible program for editing and live performance. Get in touch if you want to learn how to add that electronic touch to your recordings or live performances using this the most accessible of audio editing & performance programs.

About Rachel
I love teaching and I love singing! I'm a listener, and love bringing a fun and creative tone to my lessons while teaching the highest level of healthy technique and style. My students are usually focused on a goal: singing for fun or meditative purposes, going for auditions or performances, and recording and touring at a professional level. They've appeared on multiple stages around the world, including as a finalist on The Voice (Ireland). I taught voice and performance for several years at a university in Europe, as well as in workshops with a lot of different community organisations.

I've studied the following voice and movement practices, too: Alexander Technique, Estill Voice Training, Speech Level Singing, Pop Vocals, Experimental Voice, Trigger Point Therapy, Yoga, Pilates, Contemporary Dance.

By taking lessons with me, no
t only are you contributing to your own music-making, but you're essentially becoming a patron for me as I travel around writing music for commissions and doing shows. I love teaching online because I get to share the excitement of all of this with you!

I’ve been taking singing lessons from Rachel for over a year now. All of my sessions have been online, and I’ve been super happy with my progress and her teaching style.

The classes are structured around my own interests (specific songs, breath control, body technique, etc.), and she’s always ready to answer questions. I don’t have any formal background in musical theory, but I’ve been able to still learn so much from her. I should also mention these classes have been a god-send for my public speaking (I don’t lose my voice anymore and can project easily now).

Rachel is easygoing and has been flexible with me and my schedule changes (you just have to give her some notice). I would definitely recommend her to anyone just starting out like I did—she’s experienced, knowledgeable and professional. :)

I love that she always gives me an option on what I do or don't want to do at the moment, but still pushes me to challenge myself. I get to sing the songs I like, and learn the things I need. It helps me stay an interested student. It's fun to train with her too, because Miss Austin knows how to lighten the mood but still keep me on track during lessons. I'd say that my voice's improvements in such a short time would have never happened without her.

I signed my 12yo up for voice lessons online with Rachel because a) I couldn't tolerate my child's 'singing' and b) our schedule is pretty crowded and we needed something flexible. My child has high functioning ASD and I honestly wasn't sure how well it would work as, up to this point, in-school/in-person music classes had failed to give her a sense of rhythm or even the ability to clap/chant/recite with a crowd. I am SO glad we went with Rachel's lessons!

I no longer cringe when my child offers to sing for me - in fact, it's enjoyable to listen to her now! My child now claps and sings in beat and with a crowd - something they weren't working towards but has clearly come from this work. It's worked really well for our crazy schedule too - Rachel is awesome about working with us and often sees our needs in advance (for instance just last week she asked to change the schedule so she could get another lesson in before my child auditioned for a musical theater slot - an audition she aced thanks to Rachel's work). We have gotten what we hoped for and more from Rachel's instruction!

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 ...

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.

My BA from the Berklee College of Music focused on using Ableton as an Industry Standard DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), and using it to produce music in a way that fits you and your style. Lessons on Ableton focus on how to use the program in all aspects, as both recording and production software.

About Eric
MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

My first session with Dan was great! He asked a lot of questions to determine my level of experience/goals; then we dived right into the lesson. He’s also provided homework assigments that I’ve been able to work on straight away.

Dan is a really insightful instructor. He really knows Ableton in-and-out with his eyes closed. He also has a good ear and is able to help you get the sound that you want. He gives really good feedback on projects that you might be working on. He is really well-versed in all aspects of music production - not only in sound design and mixing but also in songwriting and also can talk about difficult topics like inspiration and creativity in a unique way. If you're serious about music production, I would certainly recommend taking lessons with Dan.

About Joey
Lots of info below!! I'm a jack of all trades! And wanted to be as descriptive as possible for your benefit.

In gist, here's are the skills I can teach you exceptionally well:

- Music Production
- Drumset / drumming

Before we get into my lesson structure, a little about me and why I know I can help. Why should you listen to me if I don't know my background? :)

I am a full-time music producer, musician, and DJ. I started playing percussion in 6th grade, which was 14 years ago. Since then, I've literally immersed myself in music about as much as you can!

I've competed in honor and all-state band for 7 years in a row throughout middle and high school, was 1 of 6 awarded into the Governor's Honors program for percussion in 2010, and was the only recipient of a jazz drum set scholarship at Georgia College in 2011. Our high sch
ool percussion ensemble was one of the top competing schools in the state and so was our indoor drumline during 2007-2011.

As far as music production goes, it's now my main focus. I started learning the ins and outs of music production in high school in 2010. Since then, I've taken courses in music technology throughout college, made music as a hobby, then took the full leap in January of 2016. I'm on the journey now and since that time I've had some pretty amazing things happen. I produce music almost every day, so everything you learn from me is what's current and what works!

Music has always been my life. I was INCREDIBLY lucky to have been fostered and taught by some of the most passionate and selfless music teachers in the state. Now that I am old enough to realize it, they literally shaped my life and helped me become the person I am today. What if I can give back in the same way and help students learn to discover what they truly love?

Flash forward to today and I'm hustling harder than ever. After graduating from The University of Georgia in 2015 with a degree in Management and Music Business, and a minor in Music Technology, I am a full-time, touring music producer and DJ. I reside in Virginia Highlands (very safe, family-friendly area) in Atlanta and have my own house, studio, and drum set, in which I can tutor you. In person - or online!




My expertise:

* Drumming / Drum Set
* Music Production (Ableton)

-----------------------------------------

Joey truly understands music on a level that is so impressive. He taught me so much about drumming and how it works. Not only is he a great drummer, but he is a great person with a fantastic work ethic and teaching methods. He’s truly the best in the biz! Thanks Joey! I now know how to drum and I love it.

Always wanted to get into music production for the longest time, so I downloaded Ableton and decided to give it a go....and it looked like hieroglyphics to me. I tried to watch some youtube videos on the matter and it still made no sense. So I did some research and figured that an in-person teacher would probably be my best bet.

That's when I found Joey - and this guy knows his stuff. He's been producing for a few years now and after listening to his music, I could tell he was the real deal. I just started my lessons not long ago, but so far he's helped me in Ableton tremendously. I'm able to understand the various plug-ins, create new sounds when I get that creative "spark" instead of just bumbling around, and now I can actually finish a song.

I fully recommend Joey, he's super patient and has made this process just so much easier for me.

What I truly love about Ableton is that it offers anybody the opportunity to create music without any formal training. Like myself, you may not be a skilled concert pianist, or have the ability to shred guitar like Jimi Hendrix, but thats Ok! Thanks to Ableton anyone can music at the drop of a hat. I have been using Ableton for 8 years now, producing in the genres of Hip Hop, Trap, Indie Rock, Nu- Disco, Bass House, and many more. Unlike other DAWs, Ableton offers its user's the ability to experiment with limitless possibilities. Its ease of use and dedication to efficient performance make it a staple to any modern studio.

About Will
I believe that music production is something meant for everyone. From working with hip hop producers like Metro Boomin & Araaab Muzik, to recording a 20 piece orchestra, one thing they all have in common is an undeniable passion for sharing their story. It doesn't matter if you can't read music or shred the guitar (I can't either), with Ableton you can quite literally create anything you can imagine. If you're one of those people who is constantly singing in the shower, or humming melodies throughout the day, then the music is already in you, you just need an outlet like Ableton to get it out. I will show you the ins and outs of Ableton, and how to create full songs in a short amount of time.
