    Learn how to become an electronic music producer (Ableton)

    I am a music producer and film score composer from London living in Berlin. I currently tutor privately and teach at the Electronic Music School Berlin. I have taught everyone from complete beginners with no music theory knowledge, to experienced DJ's trying to up their game. I am currently preparing to teach a masterclass at my school that will cover advanced mixing, mastering and sound design.

    I work in Ableton (and occasionally Pro Tools), and I have made or engineered everything from industrial techno to pop. As such, I am extremely flexible and can focus exclusively on what you are aiming to learn, regardless of what genre or subgenre you want to make. My approach is dynamic and changes depending on every student, but my aim is the same across all levels and types: to get you to love music production.

    I cover everything from
    -How to start your track
    -How to make more than just loops
    -Sampling
    -Sound synthesis
    -Basic beat creation
    -Mixing
    -Use of effects
    -Plugins

    ...and for the more advanced students
    -Multiband mixing tools
    -Mastering
    -Using sends as mixing tools
    -advanced sound synthesis

    If you are a beginner - within a few months of me teaching you, you will start to have a complete control of your DAW.

    More about me: I have worked in the music production field for the last 6 years. I have a recording engineering certificate from UCLA in California. I have scored two award winning short films, am currently signed to Subsoul Recordings and have ghost produced for over 20 artists, mainly in house and techno. I managed an artist with 10k+ followers on soundcloud and currently manage a deep house producer signed to Crosswalk Records.

    Computer Tutoring on Ableton Live
    Ableton Live is the reference software in terms of Computer Aided Music (MAO). Used by the biggest names in the industry, for both composition and live, it allows to adopt a fast and efficient workflow to convert all your ideas into music and that in a short time when you know the program well . Before the course, I always ask what are your motivations, your favorite music genre, the music you want to produce as well as your ambitions in terms of career (hobby? Tours? Ghost-production?), The I set up a personalized course that meets your needs and trains you as quickly and as best as possible so that you have all the knowledge to start alone in the world of music production. Eventually, you'll be able to program your drums, bass lines, and synths alone, process the vocals you use in your songs, and finally mix your entire composition, using only the built-in effects of your songs. Ableton Live (or third-party effects if you already have one). If you consider music production as more than a hobby, I also give music marketing courses (branding, distribution, visuals), which will allow you to create your digital identity and know the do's and don'ts of marketing music online to promote your music correctly (no spam, ...) Finally, I'm Jay Dunham, I've already had the chance to sign compositions on labels such as Armada Music / Klash Records (NL), Black Sur Blanc (FR), No Thanks (FR), Pinnacle Collective (US / LA), Diverge (NL), Kinetik Records (BE)!

    Live electronics: realizing its real-time environment with Max and Max for Live
    Create your own programming environment for your performance. Max (Cycling 74) is a reference for real-time music programming, dedicated to performance and multimedia installations. The flexibility of the environment makes it possible to create a multitude of interfaces for the computer to communicate with any type of external sensor (gesture, movement, light, ...), in order to create interactive works. The integration into the Ableton Live software, thanks to Max for Live, makes it possible to design effects and personal devices, to then integrate them in a set Live.

    Bass lessons, guitar, composition and MAO
    I teach guitar lessons, bass, writing, arrangement and MAO for all levels in Toulouse, in the Saint-Michel district. My strong point: the courses for beginners. I suggest you learn to play your instrument and especially to learn music. The courses are individual and personalized. You work on the pieces you want to play. I build the educational path based on these pieces, your expectations and your level (beginner to professional). I focus on music, language, expression, interpretation, perception of rhythm and sounds. Music is a living language. You did not learn your native language by reading a dictionary or grammar treatise. You have acquired your language by practicing, listening, imitating. Music theory is the equivalent of writing and will only be used if you really need it or want it. The music theory and the theoretical notions will be introduced as the pieces you play contain them. Thus, you can better understand their origin and especially the usefulness they can have for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you want more information.
