- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
I am a producer/engineer/dj of lo-fi hip hop and various types of electronic music that goes by the name Symbolic.
I am able to help others learn various facets of production and composition. Whatever questions may be had, I will find you the answers that will lead to more relevant questions on your journey as a musician
If there's no specific questions someone has I can focus on sound design or making a track from scratch. I have used Ableton Live 9 Intro since 2014, a version which has a limitation of 16 tracks, although I impose no such limitations.
I generally use Ableton's native audio and midi effects, as well as free plugins independently distributed by the developers themselves. If relevant I will use plugins that are paid for, but will offer access to free alternatives

- Teaching since:
My name is Symbolic, i've made electronic music for several years and run a Lo-Fi Hip Hop label called Midnight Tapes, focusing on Atmospheric Lo-Fi.
My goal as an instructor is to give people the tools they need for efficient workflow, but also to keep evolving. Whether you need help with a specific style or technique, or want to follow the process of finishing a track, I teach everyone the essentials of what gives a track definition and soul, something that will help ones music stand out among mass produced corporate music.
