Recording in a home studio has never been easier, and with a computer and a DAW (digital audio workspace), you're halfway there! If you want to start making music without renting studio space or paying a producer, it's best to learn how to do it yourself. I have been working in Logic Pro X and GarageBand for four years, and can teach you the basics to start recording audio and MIDI. I have made countless demos for my own music, school projects, and collaborations. If you want to learn how to make beats, arrange, or write songs using a DAW, I am happy to assist you. You don't need sound panels or a fancy microphone to get started. In addition to the true recording skills, I can show you how to export a DAW file so you can upload it or share it.

Having worked professionally in Los Angeles as a studio drummer/producer and recording engineer for 10 years, I have been very fortunate to have learned from some of the most talented engineers in the industry. The recording process is riddled with variables and unknowns, and many Youtube videos like to claim they have all the answers... Of course, it is not one size fits all, and what works for Youtube may be the worst choice for you and your projects! I structure all my recording lessons based on learning the fundamentals of recording, capturing a great sound from the source (no more need for 50 plugins on each track) and using the recording process as both a creative and foundational tool, to create the best music possible! By understanding the fundamentals and having a strong command of what is important, the recording process can become a creative tool to further enhance your musical message with confidence. Now having run a successful Los Angeles music production studio for many years, I have the experience to guide students through projects and help them avoid the many pitfalls that can hurt the recording process. Having made countless mistakes myself, and thus learning to solve each problem encountered, I draw upon the extensive experience and (hard-earned) successes from my career to impart on you the best practices possible. Recording is challenging! We will take a head-on approach to recording/mixing/mastering your music in a way that will enhance your music production skills across all genres and styles. More importantly, we'll have fun doing it! There's nothing better than creating great music, and I strive to enhance the music making process with each and every student to create the best end results!
