Are you interested in advancing your production skills and creating your own signature sound? Most beginner producers and mix engineers have great taste and the drive to create, but are lacking the guidance needed to reach their goals. I'm here to help you get there.

My name is Nissim and I'm a professional electronic and hip-hop producer who has worked with major labels like Island Records and Cinematic Music Group. I've performed my original tracks for thousands of people and performed on the same bill as artists like Jaden Smith, Mick Jenkins, and many more.

To me, the best mixes, the best productions, are the ones that accentuate the emotional character of the song. I know from experience how frustrating it is when the song coming from the speakers sounds fundamentally different from the song playing in your head.

In my lessons, you'll learn how to bridge that gap from a production and mixing standpoint and we will work together to help you achieve your unique creative vision. Over the course of lessons, we will create and work on various tracks in Ableton to learn real applications of rudiments and techniques on the fly. In these tracks, we will focus on practicing to achieve a professional sound but also experiment creatively to help you fill your personal production toolkit.

If you are interested in learning more, please shoot me a message! I love to chat about how I can help other artists achieve their goals.

About Nissim S.

The primary music is make is experimental beat music, kind of like Flume or Flying Lotus. As mentioned above, I've performed in front of over 10,000 people and have produced on projects for labels like Island Records and Cinematic Music Group. Additionally, I co-run an artist incubator on Northwestern U's campus where I focus on artist development. I absolutely love teaching production, mixing, and composition because with each new student, I get to renew my excitement at how cool music-making really is!

I approach each student with a unique perspective based on your goals, creating a personal curriculum that addresses your needs. Over the course of lessons in Ableton, you will come away with a portfolio of work you can look back on and track your improvement. In a month, you'll listen to the first track and will be amazed at how much you've improved and learned. The world needs to hear the music you have to offer!! Let me give you a leg up on your musical journey.

Important gear you need to get started with lessons-- Ableton, a midi keyboard, headphones, and a mic (if you want to focus on recording techniques as well).

Please reach out with any questions - I'm happy to help you with any project, big or small.

Nissim is an incredible producer and an incisive teacher. I've improved so much over the lessons I've taken with him. He has a great ear and always gives me on-point constructive criticism.

AIR Artist Incubator

I develop and run curriculum for Northwestern U's artist development incubator and direct artist development efforts. I focus on the intersection of critical theory and its intersections with marketing, entrepreneurship, and design communications within the artistic space. I work with each artist in the cohort on differentiating their work and making their uniqueness shine through even more.

As a music producer, I create immersive, experimental beat music that is similar to Flying Lotus. I've worked on projects for major labels like Island Records and have been a part of critically acclaimed rap projects. I've performed for over 10,000 people and opened for acts like Jaden Smith around Chicago.
