Music Mixing Engineering for All levels - Learn how to get the best sounds from your recordings.

Mixing a recorded music is the art to connect musical ideas to emotions.
Whether it is your music or someone else’s recordings, I’ll help you develop your skills in order to give the perfect “make up” to any song.

But what exactly is Music Mixing Engineering?
Imagine that you recorded drums, bass, keyboard, guitars and vocal.

Now you have to put everything together and be able to listen to all the instruments with perfect sonic separation. You need to match the emotional intention of the composer to the emotions of the listener.
The decision to make the voice louder or not, bring the guitars to attention only in a specific moment of the song, specify the type of reverberation and so many other decisions is the responsibility of the one working on the mix.

I’ll teach you all the 7 main steps for every successful mix and work in-depth each of those according to your development or previous knowledge.

I’ll fine tune the lessons specifically for your needs.

We can work with your recordings, but if you don't have one, don't worry.
I'll bring multi-tracks recordings of different genres for you to learn and practice along.

Common Questions:

- Do I need to be a musician to mix a music?
Although it certainly helps, you don't need to know how to play any instrument.

- I don't have monitors or an acoustically treated room, can I learn anyway?
For sure yes.
You can use headphone and simple speakers like the one from your notebook, for example.
Once you'll understand the techniques and develop your hearing, you move to the next level.

- Which software (DAW) should I use?
If you're starting now, I recommend Reaper or Logic Pro.
If you're already experienced, any DAW of your preference.

Book now and start learning from beginner to Pro the art of mixing.

Extra information

You can start with a pair of headphones or studio monitors (ideally).

About Me

ABOUT ME
Music is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others, particularly my students!
I'm a keyboardist, musical producer, soundtrack composer, sound designer and mixing engineer.
I work for the music industry since 1995, having used the most primitive DAWs you could ever imagine. :)

Education

I have and addiction for knowledge and almost always it has been in a self-taught way.
I honestly believe that if I could learn by myself, I can teach others to achieve at least the same level, but always aiming higher.

Bachelor in Industrial Design / Graphic Design

Experience / Qualifications

I also believe that a better teacher is the one who had the opportunity to face the real life, the market. I've worked with big marketing agencies and produced soundtracks, jingles and spots for big brands like Castrol, Vivo, Petrobras, Peugeot, Bradesco, Embratel, Gazeus Games and others.

As a result of my experience, I wrote a Music Mixing Engineering book in Brazil - MIX - O Poder da Mixagem (The power of Mixing) - 300 pages - 2 editions sold-out.

I also used to write articles about music production for one of the main music production magazine in Brazil (Backstage).

More than 20 years teaching musical production, mixing and many other multimedia art related topics such as photography, photoshop, music recording, soundtrack production, music for games, video production for example.

Santiago
Guitar and Music lessons from a CvA graduated teacher in Amsterdam
Learning to play the guitar can be an amazing experience at every stage of the process! My ultimate goal is to help my students to develop their skills and musical understanding by learning and playing music that they like. Therefore I adapt my teaching methodologies to the taste and needs of every student. Throughout every lesson, we will work on three main courses of development: technical aspects, theoretical knowledge, and performative practice. My classes are open for anyone who would like to enjoy exploring the universe of music: beginners and advanced, children and adults, you are all welcome to book the first lesson.

I can give you advice about music theory, how to act on stage, and reach your performing goals. Always feel free to ask anything you want to know, good communication and transfer of knowledge will speed up your progress. I teach children and adults, we can prepare together auditions, concerts, exams, or any program you would like to play for yourself.

James
Composition Lessons by experienced composer in a wide range of genres
I am a 28-year old composer, electric guitarist and songwriter based in Den Haag, teaching composition, music theory, and score writing. I teach in English or in Greek. I am half Greek and half Scottish and I have been living in the Netherlands for the last 4 years. I offer lessons in all styles, to all age groups, and for any experience level (ranging from students who want to learn how to read and write music to create their first score, up to more experienced composers who are looking for fresh ideas and improving their skills to really make their music shine, or who are looking for help polishing their composition portfolio for entrance exams). Face to face lessons are preferable, but I also teach online. I am a patient and open minded teacher, and my desire is to help you learn what you want to learn, and make sure you enjoy and take pride in your music, explore a breadth of musical ideas that can inform your work, learn to express your musical ideas as best as possible and nurture your curiosity and excitement about the world of music creation ! My Credentials: I hold a Bachelors of Music degree from Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), and a Masters of Music from The Hague Royal Conservatory. My compositions have been performed in venues such as The Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam), TivoliVredenburg (Utrecht), Korzo Theatre (Den Haag), Casa de Musica (Porto), Onassis Stegi (Athens) and at music festivals including Music in PyeongChang (South Korea), Tectonics Athens (Greece), Gaudeamus Muziekweek (Netherlands). My experience as a performer range from classical guitar studies, to playing electric guitar in rock bands, as well as experience as an improviser, performer of notated contemporary classical compositions, creator and performer of ambient and electronic music. I also am very experienced in ambient and electronic-influenced guitar music, which has given me an in depth knowledge also of the guitar in combination with technology such as guitar effects, computer software and multichannel setups which expand the audio palette of the guitar. I have written songs, I have written orchestra pieces, I have worked as a DIY home producer, I have released albums, and I've performed in concert halls, rock venues, squats and festivals. I even some experience in beat-making. My music has been performed in and has taken me to several countries, including Portugal, The Czech Republic, The U.S.A., Canada, Korea, Greece, The U.K., The Netherlands. My Teaching style: My emphasis is to teach you based on your interests and your needs. The lessons are based around each individual student. You bring me the music you are creating and the skills you want to develop as a composer, and I build my lessons around that. My primary goal is help you develop your voice as a composer, so the starting point for our lessons will always be your music. My aim is always to help you find what the heart of your composition is about, and help you to bring this out and really make it shine. To help illustrate ideas about topics we discuss I will bring examples that can help inform the music you are creating, we will explore ideas of arrangement, orchestration, rehearsal leading and / or production to help flesh out your music, as well as music theory and using scores of other composers.

Giorgos
I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Eamonn
Guitar and singing lessons in Brussels with a professional singer-songwriter/producer (En/Fr)
Trained at the Music Academy International, I propose private lessons of Guitar, Singing, and/or Audio Production centered on amplified music (funk, soul, jazz, rock, blues, etc.) and adapted to the requests of each student. My classes are open to all, children and adults, beginners or advanced. I attach great importance to the understanding of the technical tools implemented in the interpretation of the pieces, a typical lesson is therefore divided between technical work with clear explanations and actual practice on songs to play or sing. If the student is interested, I also teach the more theoretical aspects of music, such as harmony (scales, chords, modes, improvisation), music theory, rhythm, ear training, and deciphering. I also offer coaching sessions. These are non-regular sessions to target work on specific aspects of the requested repertoire. Each lesson is accompanied by work material (paper or audio) to practice at home. For guitar lessons, an instrument can be made available, for singing lessons, I accompany the student on the piano or the guitar (it is also possible to use backing tracks when the key and tempo are right ) and for audio production, I can provide the software required to start on any operating system (Win, Mac, and Linux) (I don't work with pirated software). Classes are given in my studio in Etterbeek, 5-minute walk from La Chasse. I also teach group lessons for singing, do not hesitate to contact me for more information. Flexible schedule (daytime or evening).

Do you like to sing and do you want to develop your voice? Looking for a way to get away from it all? Maybe you now have the time to try out a new hobby? Great, because singing is great fun and healthy! During my online lessons we will explore the possibilities of your voice together. Developing a healthy, natural voice and fun are central. That is why the lessons are completely adapted to your qualities, taste and tempo. Together we work on a solid singing technique, breathing, articulation, interpretation, musicality and voice hygiene. We explore the classical singing repertoire and look for music that suits your voice. You can also take a trip to other genres (jazz, pop, musical, ...)

Why you should come to class: - You have always wanted to learn to sing, with or without a specific goal in mind - You are curious about the possibilities to (further) develop your voice - You are looking for a creative outlet - You suffer from an often tired speaking voice and want to make it stronger - You sing in a choir and you want to work on your singing technique or you need some extra help with studying - You want to change your mind in a relaxing way - ...

André
Piano Lessons - from children to adults, any level. Classical music, pop/rock, etc., at student's home
Hello! I am classical pianist in the last year of my Master's degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag. I teach Piano (and also Music Education) since 2016, to both children and adults. Teaching allows me to bring my passion and enthusiasm for music to the students, and I also find incredibly rewarding to guide and follow their musical and technical development! I am easily adaptable to the students' musical taste and expectations/goals in music learning, and I am also very mindful of how I communicate, according to the students' ages and personalities. I can teach classical music, pop, rock, or any other style. My approach consists of: giving you the necessary theoretical knowledge for what you wish to play; involving you actively in the choice of the pieces/songs you will play; setting up a long-term plan for your repertoire, so that your development is made step by step in a challenging - but achievable - way (and this way, you will feel more motivated!); giving you enjoyable and creative practicing strategies; creating a rich imagery revolving around the piece - by making up a story, relating the music to emotions, etc.; and also positive feedback! Thus, my lessons will allow you to: - Learn how to read scores. -Develop your musical understanding (from notes, rhythm, harmony, to musical taste, emotional comprehension of the music, or dive into aesthetic principles concerning the period and style of the piece,...). -Improve, step by step, until you are able to play that piece/song that you love. -Prepare yourself for exams. -Etc. The best thing is that it's possible for you to learn all this and have fun at the same time! Any question, don't hesitate to contact me.

Arttu
Guitar teacher with over 10 years of experience (+ music theory, composing, music technology, and music production) in Finnish and English
It all depends on the subjects taught, but I teach with different kinds of materials and ideas. Naturally, I use various media resources available in this day and age. As online teaching might suffer from latency, I tend to focus mainly on dialogue-like playing going back and forth instead of trying to play together. For actual live playing, I can provide additional audio resources for the student to learn by themselves. I want to help my students learn as effectively as they can without relying eternally on teachers to keep on learning things. I believe music is a discovery one must do for themselves as well and teachers can provide tools and support in that process.
