It's always difficult to talk about oneself... I have had the pleasure of working in over 23 countries around the world. In doing so, I've been extremely lucky to work with some of the most prestigious musicians, engineers, producers, and singers in the world. Having a 20 plus year career in the Las Vegas strip, I've seen every approach imaginable to production; live and in the studio!
I'm accredited on quite a few projects, two which have established the gold record mark. I've studied at the the Milwaukee Conservatory of Music, Berklee, Dubspot, and a plethora of intern type opportunities.
You're only as good as the folks you surround yourself with... Thankfully, I'm confident to say that I work with some of the best. I began playing piano with Stevie Ray Vaughn at the young age of 13, thanks to my father. My father brought me into the business at a very young age. He is what many would consider a blues legend! Working with the likes of Eric Clapton, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, The Beach Boys, Sonny Boy Williamson etc; thanks to him, I was given the keys to some great connections that I work along side to this day. I'm not a fan of name dropping, but if you'd like to know more details, please feel free to ask.
In showing you Ableton Live, I hope to also share the steps or takes to competing and making a real living in this business.
Never be overwhelmed... You are just as creative as the next person. It's important to learn how to take those creative ideas from your mind and bring them to reality. I hope to show you some valuable techniques that can guide you to be extremely proficient in Ableton Live... I look forward to working with you!
I have worked extensively on a plethora of projects surrounding many of the Las Vegas shows. From the late great Danny Gans' Christmas Album, to many creative productions for The longest running show in Las Vegas, Legends In Concert.
Having worked with so many of the great musicians of Las Vegas, I'm continually gaining new ground on up and coming projects. While working in this profession for the last 20 plus years, I've learned what it takes to make it in this business. I'd love to share that through my teachings with you...
Damian is a great teacher for any level of student.
Whether you are a musician who is just starting to learn production, or want to learn Ableton and have previously used a different program (pro tools etc) he is the guy to help. He was very patient and went above and beyond to make sure I really understood and absorbed the knowledge he was sharing with me... He has brought my production skills to a whole new level and I can't say enough good things about his teaching method.
