Electronic Music Production and Sound Design with Ableton

I am an experienced electronic music producer and enthusiastic teacher with students of different levels.

I love sharing my knowledge and to inspire other producers and musicians. I like to focus on the individual skills and goals, and to make specific lesson plans based on each student needs (i.e. for beginners - have a full understanding of production techniques and software features / produce releasable tracks within 6 months; for advanced students - finding a signature sound, improving sound design and mixing skills)

Because of my expertise and versatility, I can teach many different styles of music. As an artist, I mainly focus on producing techno, IDM and house but I have a broad understanding of contemporary music and current trends because of my strong background as a drummer.

Ableton Live, Sound Design and Music Theory for Beginners and Intermediates
Ableton Live is the new standard for electronic music. Its very easy to learn and with only a couple of lessons you will be able to start making your own music! Used by almost all EDM, House, Deep House and even Pop artists it is the must-have tool in the new decade. In our classes we will go over making beats, basic music theory, song-writing techniques and production techniques including advanced sound design with synthesizers. If requested, we can also move on to mixing to make your tracks sound just like what you hear on the radio. I specialize in Ableton Live and have released albums on multiple record labels. I hold a degree in Music Production and Sound Engineering from Point Blank Music School and I am currently the Ableton tutorial writer for Attack Magazine. I also own my own recording and production studio in East London.

DJ class with a professional and passionate
With 10 years of experience on all DJing media and in different places in French-speaking Switzerland and abroad, it is with great joy that I transmit my knowledge and my passion for music. I am also very active on the Internet, with four sets of mixes, one publication per week. I developed a basic course of about 5 hours, ideal for beginners, to share the knowledge that I myself took 10 years to assimilate as an autodidact. At the end of this training, you will have everything in hand to realize your dream and mix in public. In addition to revealing the secrets that make the difference between good and bad DJ, I will also teach you how to discover music, where to get it and how to organize it. You would save money because I will tell you exactly how to choose your equipment according to your needs and where you get it at the best price. The students are all very satisfied with this course that I gave actively between 2012 and 2015 (see the pictures to read the reviews).

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.

Guitar Performance
I've played guitar for over 10 years, and have taught many people during that time. I prefer to play by ear, so i can help you develop your own musical ear, which unlocks the ability to improvise, jam with other musicians, and understand music to a deeper degree. Bring me a song you'd like to play, and we'll work through others to help build upon the techniques you'll need to be able to play freely and accuratley, the music you'd like to play.
