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.

Learn electroacoustic composition - sound creation and sound techniques
Who is this workshop for? For all curious about sound, all music, music in general, who wants to manufacture, build, examine ... (from 12 or 13 years). Should one know the music theory? Not necessarily. But familiarity with music of various styles can be a great help. DJ? Electro music? No ! We will not learn here to be a DJ or to compose "dance-music", "electro" music in the commonly understood sense, or even songs. Should I know the computer? It's better if that's the case, but learning can be done at the same time as music research. Is it necessary to have a computer? Yes ! A "workshop" rather than a class? The course takes the form of a practical workshop, listening sessions, critical works. By computer? Everything happens on computer once recorded sound elements of all kinds. Editing, transformation, mixing on software designed for this. No software required. The proposed route can be adapted to any multitrack sequencing software. The computer is only a tool, it is the composer who makes the music. Practically what do we do? The composer works "with the sounds" that he has most often recorded himself. He chooses them, assembles them, deforms them, mixes them according to his project, according to his his intuition, his ideas and desires, gradually builds a music. For those who want it and need it, exercises are proposed which allow to approach at the same time techniques of realization and specific musical proposals. Composition / Invention It is not a question of declaring oneself all composers, but of asserting that one can all ask questions of composers, with, at the same time, seriousness and fantasy. To confront the game of a free invention. What musical orientation? What style ? This is a "musical research" approach: to seek to invent a music beyond the traditional values - heights of note, regular pulsations, instrumental timbres - without being forbidden to do all that. A "music of sounds", in the widest possible sense, a "music of all sounds "as opposed to what we might call obviously too simplified" a music of notes ". This choice, which apparently seems to shake up the musical uses, is nevertheless part of a tradition of more than a century and rich of a repertoire too little known and which had various names: - Electroacoustic Music - Concrete music - Acousmatic music - Contemporary music Finally, we each have a precious tool to never forget: our ear, and a fascinating and rewarding work to drive, questioning oneself.

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.

computer-aided music, current music, Ableton Live
Professional music recorded as a sound engineer and musician, I try to give some computer-aided music lessons on software like Ableton Live 10. I can also share my know-how concerning the recording in studio as well as all the bases for a musical production autonomous. I have a very complete home studio in which I can accommodate students (guitar, bass, synthesizers and keyboards, drums etc.). I have already been a trainer in a sound school in partnership with Ferber Studios. So I usually share my knowledge and my passion with the different trainees I was able to host in the studio.

Jp
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.
