I have used Ableton Live since 2007 and believe it is one of the best pieces of music software out there. Ableton allows you to use your computer like an instrument, and allows you to quickly create songs, beats and DJ sets. If your interested in electronic music production, I would love to help get you started by giving you lessons in this amazing software.

I have produced music in Ableton since 2012. It is a powerful music production tool that, once learned, is invaluable for music production.
I can teach the in's and out's of the program, and offer aid to my students in finding their sound and crafting music fit to my their tastes.
I specialize in Electronic (EDM), Pop, Indie, and Hip-Hop.
Learn music production and more from Daniel Burton :) That's me, philosopher, musician, and friend.
I specialize in Electronic (EDM), Pop, Indie, and Hip-Hop.
Lesson Plan: I will see where your music is at, be it never started or nearly finished, then teach you the skills and give you the tips you need to create finished works of art. Songs, EP's, Albums, Lyrics, Instrumentals / Beats, Whatever. Let's do it baby.
Experience: I am a singer, songwriter, producer, instrumentalist, mix engineer, and mastering engineer. I have been producing my own music since 2012 and teaching since 2016. I teach Ableton and Logic typically, but I can work with any DAW. I am an Icon Collective Graduate.
And a little more about me: 1. I love philosophy, art, people, nature, and animals. 2. I accept you, I promise. 3. My only life advice is
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.
I've produced 100+ tracks using Ableton and my plugin library including Nexus, Serum, Sylenth, UAD, DadaLife, and Native Instruments.
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
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!
November 25, 2018
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!

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.
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.

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.
Great instructor, he’s very knowledgeable and also patient when teaching. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

Wonderful, patient, and passionate about music. Really helps spark an interest in passion and music for kids. So impressed with his ability to connect with his students!

Self-taught, he knows wonderful techniques and strategies to help teach the kids he works with.
