I can help to demystify the process of electronic music production for you. The first step is to learn how to navigate the software and execute its functions. The next is to understand the basic elements of electronic music. As we move on we will learn about recording, arrangement, sound design, mixing, and more.

Mark is so amazing - I almost don't want to tell anyone because I don't want him to become too busy.
Seriously though, he's so helpful. He breaks down complicated equipment & concepts into understandable pieces.
It also is clear that he's passionate about what he does!
Love lessons with Mark!
Amy S.
Mark is great! Helped me understand the basics and ease into learning. He was so helpful with answering any questions I had. Looking forward to growing my skills with him!

I had the pleasure of working with Mark over the course of ten weeks recently as I wanted to radically improve my abilities as a DJ. From the moment we began, Mark and I connected over similar musical tastes, and he understood my goals that I was setting for myself.

Mark worked with me by giving me stylistic feedback and walked me through technical details that gave me the comfort to start DJing my own sets. In this era where distance learning is the norm and virtual broadcasting is getting more commonplace, the work that I did with Mark has allowed me to operate with confidence. I began doing weekly streams (which had rough beginnings!) that became were the basis for work we were doing together.

I would highly recommend someone who needs help getting started DJing and also needs someone to bounce music ideas off of as they're honing in their craft. Thank you again, Mark!

I have used Ableton Live for over 13 years. I use it for recording, producing, and live performance. There are many Ableton controllers that I am familiar with such as the Push, Push II, APC40, and Launchpad. My education comes from a self taught practice, as well as having a B.A. in Music from CSUSB and a M.M. in Music Technology from SUU.

Zen has done such an amazing job teaching me how to operate Ableton. I was extremely overwhelmed and had no idea where to start and Zen really broke everything down for me and provided me with the resources I needed to get started.

Zen is a wonderful teacher. I appreciate the calm way things are explained & there are no dumb questions! I had trouble navigating my new Mac & even that was okay with Zen. Thank you & looking forward to next week

I was one of the first 4 Ableton certified trainer's world-wide and have been re-certified several times since. You can find my CT profile on the Ableton website.

I started the first US Ableton curriculum at the legendary Dubspot in NYC, where I was also teaching for 8 years, both in the physical school and online.
i've been teaching Ableton at Garnish Music since 2017 where I co-wrote the curriculum.

As a long time electronic music producer I'm familiar with Logic, Po-Tools and I'm also a Native Instruments specialist, having created curricula for sound design with Komplete and Maschine at the above schools.

Over the years I worked in many musical style, from hiphop to house, techno, synth wave and downtempo bass music styles, having been an active artist/producer with major label credentials myself since the beginnings of electronic pop music while also collaborating in the studio with many artists.

I speak English, German, French and also some Italian.

Heinrich is a great teacher and a great person!
He knows so much and is so enthusiastic and patient while teaching. He has a lot of experience and he is a warm-hearted person, definitely the kind of person you wanna spend your time with :-)
Demitri Kesoglides
Heinrich was hands-down one of the best music instructors I've ever had. He has such a celebrated history as a producer and engineer, yet he still remains humble in the teaching environment with his students. He also adapts to specific learning styles and knows how to get through to you if you have difficulty with a particular topic or module. He's also a geuine, great guy - once you are his student he has no problem helping you or giving you advice long after his course is completed. To this day my brother and I still consider him a friend and a mentor. Highly highly recommended!
Andrew
I learned Maschine and Native Instruments MK3 from Heinrich and he knows his stuff!!! He is very patient and very supportive. He is one of the few official Maschine experts who are available to teach.

Maschine is not easy to learn but Heinrich tried to simplify topics into something easy to understand. He was open and flexible to my learning style and how I wanted to approach my lessons. That's the biggest benefit to private lessons with Heinrich!

I read the review by Cezanne about Heinrich not having enough interaction with students and that was not my experience. In fact, I felt sometimes I got too much time with him (sorry Heinrich, sometimes you talk a lot haha!). Don't get me wrong, the things he had to say were very valuable, I can just be too eager sometimes to move on from a topic so that's really on me and not Heinrich. Any time I had questions, I could text him and if it was too much to text back, he would call me right away.

Heinrich is also very chill and relaxed when it comes to working with you to find a good time to meet up for a lesson.

Really enjoyed my personalized lessons with Eric! He helped me with finding the rhythm in some of my original songs. He is very encouraging and affirming.

Great instructor; always prepared and patient. He works towards my goals always.
Ben
Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!

Seemed a little disorganized. It might have been part of the "getting to know me" process and what I wanted to accomplish. The hour went by very fast!

I have taken lessons from Benjamin, and found him to be an excellent teacher. If you are looking for someone to teach you bass, or guitar you can't find a more patient teacher. I would recommend him to anyone seeking lessons.

"Mark is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and friendly to work with. He has been helping me mix music in Ableton and I am very excited about what we have created. Mark is quite articulate about music which allows us to thoroughly examine the different sounds and elements in a song to better understand what we like and what could be improved upon. I recommend him as a teacher to students of all ability levels and am excited for us to continue working together."

"I’ve worked with Jarod over the past few months, and I can unconditionally say that he’s the real deal. He has an excellent command of the entire music production process and how to navigate the music industry; not surprisingly he’s now a signed artist. Unlike a lot of instructors, Jarod is a naturally gifted mentor who actually takes time to figure out and plan out the best way forward. He is willing to share any insight and experience he has with his students. If you’re thinking about learning music production, Jarod is the perfect mentor to help you get to the next level."
