In Their Own Words

"Ideally, I want my students to become confident enough in their own mixing and production skills so that they may release the records they've worked on. This simple metric is an important part of how you can build in today's music industry. I'll be teaching the exact things that I do in the studio every single day for clients, artists, and my own projects. My experience as a mixer has given me the tools to make amazing sounding productions right from the start—I've worked on enough music to have a very precise idea of why some things sound good, and why some things do not. My production chops allow me to access the expressive and emotional side of the creative process and my mixing chops allow me to present those ideas in whatever sonic texture I can imagine."
