Teaching since:

I do believe that a class is first of all two people meeting to learn from each other (yes, you learn a lot as a teacher as well). I believe in dreams and I believe in working hard to achieve goals to make dreams come true, so I would be really happy to help you achieve yours. I believe that life is amazing and is generous and always gives us chances if we have an open heart. I believe in honesty and friendship and I believe that we could get along really well. I care for you and I am looking forward to meeting you and starting our journey :)

Logic Pro Software · In studio

I had this very short deadline on a track that I was working on, and I was a bit stressed because I, at that moment, didn't have enough knowledge about audio editing and mixing vocals in Logic. I got Elena recommended by a friend and I'm really glad for that. I got the help I needed and she also inspired me to continue learning (and now I'm certified in Logic Pro X as well!! =) )

I'm not the quickest to learn new things (I need detailed explanations), but Elena showed patience and great skills in explaining things in a very easy way.

- I'd like to give my warmest recommendations!

I started approaching Logic Pro thanks to Elena because I needed some basics for my job. She is a great teacher: she is able to make everything seem simple and immediate. Can't wait to have further lessons in the future!
