Frequently Asked Questions
How do remote production lessons work?
Feel free contact me to discuss your production goals first, or jump straight in and book a lesson on Stripe 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 or Skype 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.
