Very experienced with Digital Audio Workstations and Ableton is one of my 1st favorites. You will have tons of fun with the possibilities!
You might not always notice it, but music is all around—from the stereo in your car to the music piped in at department stores. And you also may not be aware that music has a wide array of impacts on your health: Studies show that music has a strong effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information. And if you’ve ever played an instrument, studies show that you’re already ahead of the curve. Playing an instrument is a great way to test out your creative thinking and push your brain to process information in a new way. Whether you’re listening or playing, a little music can go a long way. I am here to help you realize not only your playing potential, but guide you into not ju
st becoming a guitar player, piano player, but a musician. I am able to teach Piano, Guitar, Music recording from software/hardware to MIDI, including Sonar, Reason, and related software.
I have studied music at California State University San Bernardino, where I minored in music and learned the immense possibilities of the music field. Music is part of my everyday life, and its an honor to know I can play music but also create it. My goal is to show you as the student how to realize that dream.
*** Lesson Details *** I am a very friendly, fun and patient instructor. I believe that when you take any type of music lesson, it should be to have fun. With fun, passion, and dedication, sky is the limit. The curriculum I like to use are the most simplified forms to teach an instrument. It's about playing smarter, not harder. I do offer recording sessions to my students to track their progress, and give you a copy to keep as memorabilia.
*** Studio Equipment *** Bergman Upright Piano. Fender Acoustic/ Gibson Electric. Marshall Amps. Digital and analog Recording Station.
*** Specialties *** I have in-depth knowledge of classical works, but my emphasis is in modern rock/ Alternative/ Pop. I like teaching the songs you like to hear from The Beatles to Green Day! I love all music genres and if I have not heard of the song you want to play I will learn it so that I can teach you!

Paul is a great and fun guy with exceptional musician knowledge across multiple platforms. The lessons provided me with the basics I needed to basically perform as a DJ. There is a lot to learn & he's the guy that got me started. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
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 ...
Hi, my name is Josh Weinberg. I have over 10 years experience teaching drums & about 5 years experience teaching music production, & music theory (to all different ages). I have received an award from Berklee College of Music's Community Affairs Dept. for my teaching work in the Boston area (see photo). I graduated Berklee cum laude honors and w/ 2 degrees, Drum Performance & Electronic Production & Design. I teach a wide variety of techniques & cater each lesson plan to each student, to maximize our time together & help make the student the best musician he/she can be! I can travel to you for in-home lessons or you can come to my studio in Newton, which is a nice, isolated space where you won't be distracted by other lessons happening in the adjacent room like in some other studios/schools. In addition to teaching, I frequently performs
with bands around the northeast U.S., & have performed with internationally acclaimed artists such as Nona Hendryx, Simon Shaheen, & Richard Devine. In the past 6 years, I've performed in 8 countries - USA, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Brazil, Turkey, & Ghana.
My son enjoyed the lesson and wanted to practice right away.

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.
August 21, 2018
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.
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!! ~Eric
Eric is super nice, helpful, and the best part is he didn't laugh too hard when he heard me sing on the recording we were working with! He always works at my pace and is super easy to communicate with. Thanks brother!
I have used Ableton Live for over ten years. I use it for recording, producing, and live performance. There are many Ableton controllers that I am familiar with such as the Push, Push, APC40, and Launchpad. My education comes from a self taught practice, as well as having a Music Technology B.A. from Cal State San Bernardino.

Chill and helpful instructor! He gives you a good structure on where to spend your time and energy as efficiently as possible
August 31, 2018
Zen is a great teacher. He has taught me polyrhythms, timing, and playing subdivisions with different note groupings in jazz styles. He also shows up on time and prepared to get to business. Id recommend him to anyone looking to learn drums or Ableton!
Even if you've never touched Ableton before, I will get you creating right away :) As a self-produced synth-pop artist under the moniker mini bear, I have experience teaching at both beginner and advanced levels. Having taught one-on-one in various environments, including at Apple, I have the ability to translate seemingly difficult concepts into relatable information. I have a strong background in music theory, songwriting, and synthesis, and I will show you how you can best use Ableton as a creative tool to reach your artistic potential.
As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech.
As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the moniker mini bear, with which I have written, produced, and released 2 EPs and 1 full length album. Illustrating a sound rich in 80s referenced romantic nostalgia, mini bear has garnered praise and recognition from respected media such as Grimy Goods, Impose Magazine and international indie press. I am currently an active performer in Los Angeles, and I have played at local venues such as The Echo, Resident, The Hi Hat, Bootleg Theatre, Moroccan Lounge, and The Satellite.
My role as a teacher has grown over the span of 10+ years. As a Creative
Trainer at the Apple store, I taught customers Logic Pro in both private one-on-one and workshop settings. I have also taught workshops on Ableton topics through Play Like A Girl and IO Music Academy. In addition to teaching adults, I have taught music production and Ableton to children ages 10-15 at Girls Rock music camp. I have been producing in Ableton Live for the past five years, and I provide consulting sessions to determine work flow efficiency. Content and teaching styles are customized based upon the learners skills and learning styles. I currently teach music production and synthesis at IO Music Academy in Hollywood.
Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.
She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.

Lauren is a fantastic teacher, patient and thorough in her technique. I learned so much from taking lessons with her!

Lauren's expertise and creativity really shines through during the lessons!! It's the perfect mix of a thorough, methodical lesson but also fun and extremely engaging, with room for our individual visions and artistry to shine through on Ableton. I can't recommend her enough, She's the best out there!!!

Have you always wanted to play the drums? Do you want to jam along your favorite tracks or play live with a band? I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. I take pride in helping every student achieve their goals on their instrument. My methods are relaxed and patient, and is an environment that promotes a love of music! Well pick up some sticks and lets get rolling! (Pun intended)
My lessons are not the same for everyone. I like to get to know my students; music goals and learning style, and I build my curriculum around that information.
I am a full time touring, recording musician who lives in Nashville TN. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in Performance from Roberts Wesleyan College. During my studies at Roberts I taught percussion and
music theory at U-Prep High school.
In 2016 I moved to Nashville, after 4 months of working with anyone and everyone, I decided to find a band I that I could call my own. Leading me to this moment, where I am currently on tour with my band, The Foxies, and perform with and MD for two other artist based out of Nashville.
I have Performed at Warped Tour, Sundance, SXSW, Bonaroo, Nashvilles-Live on the Green.
Rob is one of the most innovative and experienced experts on Ableton Live. He knows everything from how to set up the perfect arrangement for your backing tracks to how to automate lights synced to your show.

First lesson with Rob was very good. He was patient, got a feel for the student level and encouraged learning and creativity. Awesome experience.
March 18, 2019
Of all my year's of formal education, I can confidently say my time as a student under Rob was perhaps the most significant. He demonstrated a tremendous amount of patience, and genuine care into my development, and took me from a guy who was VERY rough on the drums to a proficiency level.
On top of building the physical mechanics and techniques to become a drummer, Rob put even more emphasis on how I internalized, felt, and heard the music. Each lesson focus was equally weighted with theory, practical use, real-time listening, and execution - developing all my senses and slowly building my foundation so I could take the material and know how to grow upon it outside of the lesson room.
Lessons with Rob is more than learning a cool fill, or a fun groove - even though those do happen - but it is learning how to become a musician, and I'll carry the lessons learned from him with me forever.
I have been producing electronic and acoustic music in Ableton for nearly a decade. I am deeply familiar with its capablilities and workflow and can teach you to feel at home inside the software.
Not only can I show you what all the devices and components of the software do, but also how to perform advanced programming to gain unlimited functionality out of your DAW.
I've studied music for 25 years.
In addition producing of both electronic and non-electronic, I am a multi-instrumentalist playing primarily piano/keys, but also brass and woodwind instruments, drums, guitar, ukulele, mandolin, voice, and (slowly-but-surely) cello.
I have been producing my own music in Ableton for almost 10 years and have and have upcoming EPs with The Producer Dojo and Impossible Records for my newest project Missing Lynx.
Don't make this journey alone. At this point I've made all the mistakes and can save you from wasting time and money on skills, gear, and software that are unnessary or low-yielding. Moreover, I can give you another set of ears and feedback on your music that you can trust, which is invaluable while you are still training your ears to listen objectively.
Alex is a great teacher, willing to go at your speed. I can tell he's very qualified to teach any level of student. I'm brand new to DAW software, and I really needed someone to help me work through it from step one. Now I feel like I've got the ideal situation going on, where I work on it on my own during the week, come up with a million questions, and then I can ask him and solve my issues once a week. Very nice guy, more than worth the price of the lessons.
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. 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.
I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a dual major in Electronic Music Production & Sound Design, as well as Music Business. I actually learned from this site in the past and it taught me so much about music and production. I discovered the joy of giving back and teaching, and would love to pass on what I have learned from Berklee and my teachers outside of school to you. I specialize in contemporary production and engineering with an emphasis in making music that is practical and ready for radio. I can teach you all you need to know about audio engineering and production, as well as how to make your music relevant to the marketplace and heard. EDM music, hip-hop.rap, pop are my specialties, but I also can work outside of those genres. I have taught for about a year now before coming back to this site, so I am excited to meet n
ew students and pass on my knowledge.
In March of 2019, my career took off by signing my debut single to Black Hole Recordings. Since then, I have seen tremendous and continued success with my music and hope to help apply all that I have learned in the industry to my students as well.
My first session with Jarod was great! Lots of great information, very focused session, and great experience in a very well put together studio. Jarod was also very welcoming and open to conversing about personal manners that influence my music experience. Even after our first session, I feel much more confident in mixing practices which I had not before. Looking forward to our future meeting and I would highly recommend Jarod as an instructor for anyone looking to improve their knowledge and practices in regard to production and mixing/mastering!
May 1, 2019
I’ve worked with Jarod over the past few months, and I can unconditionally say that he’s the real deal. He has an excellent command of the entire music production process and how to navigate the music industry; not surprisingly he’s now a signed artist. Unlike a lot of instructors, Jarod is a naturally gifted mentor who actually takes time to figure out and plan out the best way forward. He is willing to share any insight and experience he has with his students. If you’re thinking about learning music production, Jarod is the perfect mentor to help you get to the next level.
"Love the lessons!! I always learn something new that benefits me when I comes to producing in Ableton. Everything is taught in a very simple way."
