Want to take your production skills further? Or perhaps you are interested in composing original music, but just aren't sure exactly where to start. Wherever you may be on your musical journey, I'd love to be able to help you turn your ideas into fully fleshed-out songs. From composition to engineering, I'll show you how to use the very powerful stock plug-ins Ableton Live has to offer alongside the intuitive workflow & hotkeys the software utilizes so you will know how to not only use the software, but understand it.

About Eliot A.

I am a 24 year old student at Columbia College Chicago studying for my BA in Audio Design & Production. Outside of the classroom I have 7 years of experience composing original music using Ableton Live & being an independent 'bedroom producer'.

Under the artist name 'Cymba', I have received over 2 million streams on Spotify alone. I also have produced & recorded for many Chicago-land artists such as Pacific Garden, Yung Savoye & Mila La Morena. Furthermore, I am a multi-instrumentalist with extensive experience playing both piano & guitar, while also having some basic experience with bass & drums. I have played in several bands as vocalist, guitarist & keyboardist.
