Yo, Zen is the best in the game. Gettin' groovy on the drums as well as in the virtual world. Much obliged!
Dj zen is an excellent teacher for someone like me.. He was patient and understanding when it came to the speed at which I pick up things. (Slowly) He was extremely versatile when it came to the types of music i wanted to mix and very knowledgeable about the equipment i had in front of me. I would recommend him to extreme beginners to people looking to polish their skill sets and add even more. Im very happy with what I am learning!
Zen has done such an amazing job teaching me how to operate Ableton. I was extremely overwhelmed and had no idea where to start and Zen really broke everything down for me and provided me with the resources I needed to get started.
