Once's own experience with the program will determine what to expect. Regardless, students will learn new techniques and music theory. I used Ableton Live to write music that has been placed in T.V. and Film.

About Philip
Guitarist Philip L. was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, where he began his musical studies at a young age. He was accepted to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, named by the Grammy Foundation as the top performing arts high school in the nation, and after graduating, received a scholarship to attend Stetson University. Under the direction of Dr. Stephen Robinson, the head of the guitar department at Stetson University, he was able to refine his skills and learn a great deal about the interpretation of music on the guitar.
After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Music, Philip became an instructor at University High School in Orange City, Florida. There he directed the guitar program, which he built, and, outside of teaching, Philip performed professionally (guitar and voice) around Central Florida in various groups and styles
of music, including Rock, Pop, and Jazz. Since then, he was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Akron as a Teaching Assistant and later received his Master’s under the tutelage of Stephen Aron. Philip is currently working towards his Doctorate at FSU. Philip has played a number of feature concerts and masterclasses with great guitarists of our time, such as David Russell, Andrew York, Dusan Bogdanovic, Roland Dyens, Michael Chapdelaine, and many other artists.

*** Lesson Details ***
The first step will be evaluating the student's musical and technical skill level, then I build a curriculum from that point. As an example, a beginning student would learn how to read music, play basic rhythms, use proper left and right hand technique, and the notes in the first position on individual strings. After I have evaluated the current level of the student and their musical interest, I will begin to move my curriculum around their various needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will have a music stand for you to use at your lesson. I require the student to have their own instrument so that they may practice outside of their lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music Stand

*** Specialties ***
Classical - Pop - Jazz - Songwriting - Digital Arts - Recording - Music Production - Theory - General Music

I recommend Phillip as a guitar teacher.

Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.

Devin is an excellent and knowledgeable teacher! He taught me the basics of Ableton and the details of music production, recording audio/midi tracks, sound libraries, effects, etc. He guided me through the songwriting process, and made this complex software easier to navigate through and understand. I highly recommend Devin for anyone interested in enhancing their skills in music production. Thank you Devin for all your help!

We start by getting amazing sounds, and then I will show you exactly the ways that you can put them together to make any track an instant favorite for your listeners.

I love to teach. I started teaching privately while earning my Music Engineering degree (B.S.) from the University of Miami. I studied jazz guitar at UM and during my 10 years as a guitarist I have played many other genres from folk to metal to pop.
Most of my tutoring experience during college focused on math courses, SAT prep and music theory.
I am great with kids; I taught summer camps at a town-run skatepark for 4 summers.
Give me a call to see if we are a good fit!

Max has been on time every time. He has established a very good rapport with my 15 year old (!!!) son which results in my son doing the homework and not dreading the sessions. My son seems relieved to be understanding the Algebra II concepts that he missed during the past term. He also seems way more confident and in a much better mood as if solving this issue for school was weighing him down before. In addition Max is very pleasant, very polite so his presence is welcomed by the rest of the family. Thanks!!!

Modern technological tools are revolutionizing the possibilities for musical artists. By learning about music production, you can have the sounds of the orchestra, rock band, and beyond all at your finger tips. I offer instruction in Ableton Live, Pro Tools, and other related plug-ins software and hardware equipment.

Depending on your goals, music production lessons can include instruction on synthesis, realistic sounding manipulation of samplers, recording, mixing and mastering. If these terms sound like Greek to you, that's fine too! All that is required for music production lessons, is an interest in creating music with a computer and other pieces of music technology.

I also offer lessons in composition, music theory, arranging, and piano performance. These subjects may also be included, if applicable. On the first lesson with a new student, I'll always go over the options for potential areas of study and work with the student to develop an appropriate course of study ...

In addition to his musical pursuits, Ryan also has a profound passion for self-growth, psychology, and spirituality.

Whether a beginner or an advanced musician, I love working with students of any age and skill level! I tailor each lesson to specifically fit the student’s skills and interests, making sure that they are not only progressing but enjoying the process of making music. 

About Taylor
I'm a video game composer who loves working with students of any age and skill level, whether they are beginning to compose for the first time or have been composing for years. Getting people started composing and watching them discover that they have a lot to say through music, is such a joy of mine! I tailor each lesson to specifically fit the student’s skills and interests, making sure that they are not only progressing but enjoying the process of making music.

With me, students can learn:

- Composition (any style: jazz, classical, pop – you name it, we can do it!)
- Composing for film, T.V. and video games
- How to use music composition software (Logic, Digital Performer, Cubase, Studio One, Pro Tools, Ableton etc.)
- Music theory
- Songwriting
- Music production
- How to use music notation
software (write out your parts, charts, lead sheets etc. so that others can play your original compositions)
- Classical percussion techniques

Students can expect to have a lot of fun learning with me! We can write soundtracks, band pieces, solo pieces - whatever the student finds most interesting. :)

BIO:
I’m a composer who currently lives in Bellvue, Washington. I started my music career when I was 9 years old playing the Zimbabwean marimba and mbira (a traditional Shona thumb piano). Not only are the instruments beautiful, but they express our connection to the world around us. I completely fell in love with the polyrhythms and melodies of Zimbabwean music!

I continued to pursue my passion for music by studying percussion and composition at The Boston Conservatory of Music… then completed my M.M. in Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games at The Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain.

Now I write music for video games and help our stories unfold.

I've been working with Taylor for several months now and have enjoyed it very much! She has been helping me with Cubase and composition. Musicians need to collaborate and share ideas and I'm grateful I've had the opportunity to do that with her. She is well organized, easy to get along with, and has an impressive background. I would highly recommend her for your next project or if you're new to DAW's.

Working with Taylor has been one of the best investments I have made for my personal development in the musical world. She has helped compose music for a play, has helped keep me calm when I feel like I am overwhelmed or overthinking my objectives and keeps me leveled. We have also worked on analyzing scores from classical to modern. I highly recommend her if not just for her knowledge/skills, but her great sense of humor as well (makes the lessons even more enjoyable). Thanks Taylor, you’re the best.

I was very pleased that Taylor offered Skype lessons, but I was a bit worried whether I could learn in this format or not. To my surprise, it was exceptionally easy and rewarding! Currently, Taylor and I are working on a piece that I am composing for my short film. Of course, as a newbie, I knew nothing about Apple’s Logic Pro X when I began, but Taylor took her time to explain just how the software worked, as well as the techniques I needed for scoring my film. I highly recommend Taylor and the very convenient Skype format! You won’t be disappointed.

I've had Ableton for years but hadn't understood how to use it. It's not something you can tackle on your own. As with any other instrument, you need a good teacher in order to learn the most. She taught me more than I could have ever learned on my own.
