Online Music Production Lessons - Take your tracks and mixes to the next level.
Great idea but lifeless demo?
Do you have a great song but don't know where to start to take it to a professional level? I can help. I have the musical, production and mixing experience to help you work on each stage to achieve the depth, punch and clarity of a professional mix.
Expensive gear but poor results?
Maybe you've already bought lots of plugins, expensive outboard gear and watched lots of online tutorials but your mixes still sound weak? I've been there, made all the mistakes and I can help you move towards the pro result you're desperate to achieve.
What can I learn?
With 10 years professional experience as a session musician in London, I can quickly identify any musical issues in your track. I can then show you how to use Balancing, EQ, Compression, FX, Layering and more through to final mastering to create a professional finished mix.
My productions and mixes have been played on TV in the UK, Japan, US, Australia and on UK radio (BBC 1Xtra) as track of the week. I studied with Geoff Baust at Berklee and then worked as a production lecturer at the ICMP London. You can hear examples of my work on the testimonials page.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do remote production lessons work?
It’s simple. Feel free to contact me to discuss your production goals first, or jump straight in and book a lesson above. I’ll then get in touch ASAP to arrange a time which suits you.
What equipment do I need?
All you need is a computer with a camera and microphone, Zoom installed and a decent quality internet connection. When your lesson time arrives have your DAW open and ready to go.
Can I send tracks for feedback?
Yes. I recommend you have mp3 versions of your music ready to send over on Zoom during the lesson which I can then analyse and discuss in Logic or Ableton.
Which DAWs do you teach on?
My DAWs of choice are Ableton Live and Logic Pro X. I can deep dive on both those platforms, or if you use another DAW can offer concepts and advice that you can apply on any setup.
