TESKO

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!
