Learn the Basics
I can show you the basics of composing electronically whether from samples, software instruments or whatever you have in the home. It's easier than ever to make music without the need of a professional studio.
Do you want to know how to create the classic boom-bap drum sound of your favourite 80s and 90s hip-hop albums? It's not difficult when you know a few simple tricks on the Akai MPC drum-machine. I can teach you how to chop samples and program them so that they sound unique and new.
I'm most experienced with Logic and Ableton, but can offer you help using whichever DAW you prefer. I'm also proficient in musical knowledge of harmony, melody and rhythm, all of which can contribute massively to your electronic creations.
Production - EQ-ing
Whether you want to make your kick sound clearer in the mix, pump your bass to the max or just let the vocals shine, I'm able to help you with EQ-ing, compression, filtering and all that goes into making a mix sound great.
DJ your own Beats - SP404
If you want to DJ your own beats, the Roland SP404 is the way to go. I can teach you the basics of how to bring a track to life on stage with a few simple effect knobs on the SP404.
