I’ve been producing music of different genres for 8 years, mostly bass music for the last 2, but have plenty of experience in the melodic side of electronic music as well, coming from a heavy piano/instrumental background. Since the beginning of last year, I’ve been teaching production privately and it has been a rewarding, eye-opening experience to help so many flourishing producers succeed and learn from them along the way. I can help you grow as an experimental bass producer and focus on adding creative, tasteful intention to your arrangements.

I love teaching all levels but I'm extra passionate about leveling up the producer who knows their tools to freely expressing themselves in the DAW. However, my approach is not at all DAW-dependent and instead focused on understanding why/when to apply techniques - with that said, we can also deep dive into Ableton workflow and shortcuts!
