I am a creative and experienced Music Producer/ Recording Engineer/ DJ who has been recording, producing, and performing music for over 10 years with many solo and collaborative projects, including production and song-writing for a song that has received over 1 million plays. I am an expert in digital audio workstations (DAWs), with a primary focus on Ableton Live for recording, sound design, mixing, and mastering. I am also skilled in analog recording and production with midi keyboards and controllers such as the Ableton Push.

You do not need any prior experience with music or music production. I will curate my lessons towards whatever your interests and skill levels are. Whether you’re looking to make hip-hop, house, pop records, EDM, dubstep, etc., or just learn to record your instruments and edit and process them, I can help you, as I’ve spent a lot of time working in multiple genres and styles.

About Garrett B.

I am a self-taught music producer and DJ with over 10 years of experience. I fell in love with it when I was 16 and have been making music nearly every day since! I currently work on a solo electronic music project, but also do collaborations with local singers, rappers, and musicians. I've explored many genres and styles of music including EDM (Dubstep, Trap, House, Techno, Drum & Bass), Pop, Hip-hop/Rap, RNB, Indie-electronic, Ambient, and World music.

I recently realized that I love teaching Ableton Live to my friends and so I'm starting my journey as a private teacher. While I don't have much teaching experience, I am very passionate about music production and sharing the knowledge that I have to help others. I believe I have something to offer people of all skill levels. I also love many types of music, and will help you with whatever you're interested in.

Some of my highlights as a musician/DJ include achieving 1 million plays on a song produced by me, getting a song signed to a record label, DJing at Summer Meltdown Music Festival, and performing as an opener for touring artists such as Memba, Cashmere Cat, Ganz, Ekali, and others.
