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.

Devin is an excellent and knowledgeable teacher! He taught me the basics of Ableton and the details of music production, recording audio/midi tracks, sound libraries, effects, etc. He guided me through the songwriting process, and made this complex software easier to navigate through and understand. I highly recommend Devin for anyone interested in enhancing their skills in music production. Thank you Devin for all your help!

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!

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!
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.
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
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.

Great vibes and very articulate. She goes so in depth with her explanations but also manages to do it in a very chilled and fun way. Perfect for Ableton newbies. I'd also recommend her as a teacher if you want to take your Ableton chops to a whole new level!! :D
