About Paul

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.

Private Ableton Teacher

I have extensive experience with Ableton teach how maximize it as a creative tool. Instead of showing "tricks" on Ableton I show how to use Ableton as an instrument to become a complete musician. As part of Ableton instruction I teach composition, groove feel, timbre, all the same things that make a good instrumentalist translate to learning Ableton.

About Kellen

I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in music education. There are many things I wish I would've been taught when I was younger that would have accelerated my growth, and I love using that knowledge to accelerate my student's growth. I teach tonal harmony (as you'd learn in music school), focus on groove and rhythm (which is commonly neglected in music school), and an awareness of new technology (which was ignored when I was in music school). I believe because no matter which direction you are coming from, you will come to this intersection making music in this era.

Kellen is a great instructor. He explains musical ideas in an way that I qet quickly. I'll show him a song and he'll pick it up and teach it to me right away. I would definitely recommend him!

I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

I specialize in Electronic (EDM), Pop, Indie, and Hip-Hop.

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.

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'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

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.

Hello, my name is Corey and I'm a music mentor currently offering private music production lessons in Ableton Live and Logic Pro X!

EDM, Trap, Rap, Rock, whatever it is I got you covered!

I've been involved with music for 15 years, started as a drummer but ended up playing multiple instruments in bands since I was a kid and eventually investing a ton into equipment and recording the local bands when I could. Since then I have racked up 10 years of experience with DAWS and have taken courses through Berklee School of Music as well as completing multiple music production programs including Icon Collective and have had several very knowledgable mentors that have worked in the field.

About Corey

Hello, my name is Corey and I'm a music mentor currently offering private music production lessons in Ableton Live and Logic Pro X! I've been playing music for 15 years, was a drummer for multiple bands, played in jazz band at moorpark college for a bit until I eventually started investing in my own equipment and recording the local bands. Since then I have racked up 10 years of experience with DAWS and have taken courses through Berklee School of Music as well as completing multiple music production programs including Icon Collective and have had several very knowledgable mentors that have worked in the field. I currently work with W.A. Productions making sample packs and educational content and have worked in the past with Academy.fm (Cymatics).

I specialize in most styles of EDM, Trap/Rap, and can also work with Rock and Metal as that

was my main genre for about 7 years. Students that decide to work with me can expect to gain a much deeper understanding of the DAW, how to squeeze the most potential from the tools inside of it, and how to get you mixes and masters up to a level where they compete with commercial tracks. I also can help you quickly broaden your understanding of sound design and synthesis, and get you making your own quality samples in no time. From there if you feel you need to take it further, I can show you how to put it all together and create your own tracks from scratch that really have a signature sound to them, and show you how to take those tracks and show them to the world!

"I had waaaay to much fun learning from Taylor, she explained ableton in a great way and now I can write songs and perform with it! I'm so happy would tota
lly suggest taylor to be a teacher. Even if you are just starting out!"
...
Daniel
"Always wanted to get into music production for the longest time, so I downloaded Ableton and decided to give it a go....and it looked like hieroglyphics t
o me. I tried to watch some youtube videos on the matter and it still made no sense. So I did some research and figured that an in-person teacher would probably be my best bet.

That's when I found Joey - and this guy knows his stuff. He's been producing for a few years now and after listening to his music, I could tell he was the real deal. I just started my lessons not long ago, but so far he's helped me in Ableton tremendously. I'm able to understand the various plug-ins, create new sounds when I get that creative "spark" instead of just bumbling around, and now I can actually finish a song.

I fully recommend Joey, he's super patient and has made this process just so much easier for me."

"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!"

Omar
"Taylor is an amazing teacher! She really knows how to break down complicated subjects for people like me who have no idea how music theory works and why i
t's important. My class is divided into theory and actual use of the software which is really a great way to learn the concepts and apply them yourself. We also had a lot of fun jamming out to little songs we made!"
