Private Ableton Teacher

I have a live electronic show where I use Ableton exclusively. I can show you how to get around the program and really make some serious music.

About Cooper

Bachelor's Degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Also studied Classical Performance at the Lionel Hampton School of Music.

Ten Years professional performing experience road touring in the U.S.A., and international on cruise ships. Most recently with For The Record Live from Los Angeles, CA , and Broadway’s “After Midnight”. Jazz and popular music, as well as classical.

My vision with students is be a guide in whatever direction they want to go. I want the student to find their individual musical voice, as well as technique. I will work on learning songs, air, tone production, scales/theory, reading music, improvisation, etc. I'm very patient, and I love to teach.

Yo hablo español!

My first instrument is saxophone, but I'm also a skilled doubler on flute, clarinet, harmonica, bass guitar, piano, an

d vocals. I'm very versatile in almost any style of music. At Berklee, I also studied recording and production, as well as arranging and composition. I've been featured in an arranger and composer in many settings, including two of my own shows. I completed a number of different recording projects including my own full-length album, and have worked extensively in the genre of electronic music.

Private Ableton Teacher

I've produced 100+ tracks using Ableton and my plugin library including Nexus, Serum, Sylenth, UAD, DadaLife, and Native Instruments.

About Christiaan

Christiaan is a multi-talented performer in theater, opera, and pop music. He played Gaston in the Broadway tour of Beauty and the Beast. Something of a bad boy, he was kicked out of Opera School for singing jazz, yet he went on to earn three music degrees, and work with opera legend Marilyn Horne and avant-garde composer Jake Heggie. Now he's in New York studying with Lady Gaga's teacher and singing his own arrangements of Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, and John Mayer at Carnegie Hall while writing and recording pop songs in Nashville and the U.K. Look for his new single That's When You Know.

Christiaan enjoys seeing people succeed, so his approach to teaching is a combination of play and practice. Ultimately we sing because we want to bring people joy, yet to do so, we must hone our talents to perfection. By mixing the joy of music with disci

pline, we achieve our greatest dreams.

I just had my first lesson with Christiaan. He was amazing. Gentle, very positive, and really good at observing and figuring out my strengths and weaknesses. He's also inspired me to learn with his love of music and thoughtful approach.

I was blown away by his knowledge and assessment of the skills I should prioritize. My mind was blown several times. Excellent pedagogy and very personable!

I've had a great experience taking lessons with Christiaan! I've had about 10 lessons total now. As someone who doesn't have a background singing, I was definitely a bit nervous going into it, but that didn't last long -- Christiaan's friendly and extremely talented. I especially appreciate that he provides context about posture, history, anatomy, etc. and that he took time early on to learn about my goals. Last but not least, I'm happy with my results so far!

Private Ableton Teacher

The main goal of an Ableton class is to be able to effectively use all the tools that you are given to achieve your specific goal. Each student will have a different idea of what they want to create with this software, and its really important to be able to remove the technical obstacles and get straight to the creating. I will enable each student to be able to better visualize their projects, and I will train their ears to be able to better listen to sound such that they can understand the specifics behind creative decisions. As a producer you have to take both microscopic and macroscopic views when it comes to a piece of music, understanding how both a small sound can affect the progression of a story though music, and how the story itself unfolds over time. This can all be done through practical training in Ableton Live.

About Aashray

I am a professional pianist/keyboardist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with a Bachelors of Arts in Music & Technology.

With my diverse background in both the technical and creative arts, I will be able to help build a foundation of musical knowledge that will allow students to explore areas from theory & performance to production and innovation, all with a musical focus.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. My background is mainly in Carnatic (South Indian classical) music, which I have been playing on the keyboard for 15 years now, but I have been playing and performing jazz piano for the past 8 years as well. I have been performing with my band, "In the Works" for the past 2 years in the NYC area, and I also play with another band that performs oft

en in the tristate area, so I have a lot of experience with live shows that I can also offer. I specialize in teaching students to read and play contemporary & jazz music using chord sheets, but more importantly, I can help you attain a deeper level of understanding of the music that most piques your interest, allowing you to tackle any challenging

My teaching style combines theory, piano, composition, and production to give students a more comprehensive understanding of music and how they can find their voice within it. My personal passion is contemporary music but I feeI that any musician can benefit from guided study, analysis, and practice in all different genres and styles of art. Making these connections is where I feel I have the most impact with my students, and I look forward to meeting and growing as musicians together!

Private Ableton Teacher

If you want a lesson longer than 30 mins you can combine lessons to make them longer.

Max was a former instructor at Dubspot, the renowned electronic music production and DJ school in New York. You can watch his production tutorials on the Dubspot YT channel. He has been featured on the Ableton blog, and performs and teaches with his Ableton setup around the world. Max's lessons are individually tailored to each student, according to their musical tastes, personal goals, and skill level.

***THINGS YOU WILL LEARN***
We will always focus on the things you want to learn, but here are some of the concepts I often teach:
-Layout of Live
-Session View and Arrangement View
-Programming beats with Drum Rack
-Playing with a MIDI controller like PUSH
-Sound design with Analog, Operator, and Wavetable synths
-Using plugins
-Sampling
-Arrangement and song structure
-Mixing and mastering

About Max

Hi, my name is Max. I have been teaching for over 15 years, teaching a range of instruments from saxophone, clarinet, and flute, to jazz piano. I also teach music theory, ear training, song-writing, and electronic music production. I teach students of all ages and skill-levels and hold a Masters degree in jazz saxophone performance from Manhattan School of Music, where I am currently on faculty to teach Music Theory and Eartraining at the Precollege Division. I also direct the jazz band at Gill St. Bernard’s School in New Jersey.

I love helping students achieve their goals, and I think learning music should be something fun and enjoyable. I also believe every student learns in a different way and at a different pace. With this in mind, I tailor my lessons towards each individual student and help them set achievable goals, making sure

they are having fun in the process.

Besides playing and teaching the saxophone, I also teach the clarinet, and flute, as well as music theory and electronic music production with Ableton Live. From my wide experience as a performing musician I can teach in a variety of genres, including jazz, classical, pop, and World Music.

I have been fortunate to have taught students all over the world, including Singapore, Africa, and the UK, many times performing along the way. I have led my own band for many years, with performances around the world, and with which I have recorded numerous albums, which can be found on Spotify and iTunes.

When I am not playing or teaching music I love to hang out with friends, be outdoors, and travel to places I have never been before.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you realize your goals in music.

My first lesson was extremely productive. I am an adult student and hadn't played in many years and Max focused on techniques to help me with my weaknesses, and to quickly surpass the level of playing I was previously at. He is patient, encouraging and an excellent teacher.

Tessa
Max is a fantastic teacher! As a parent I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a very experienced, kind, and fun teacher. Max is all of these things plus more. What I really like about him, besides that he is very knowledgable and amazingly talented, is that he always has a positive attitude! Lila loves to go to her lessons and she learned so much during her time with Max.
