Personal 1 on 1 Ableton training
Although I believe that my tutorial video collections are very helpful for most, I know of several people who prefer direct interaction with me. You may have a specific topic that is challenging you or perhaps you run into a rough spot in one of your songs that you need guidance on.
Whatever it may be, there are several reasons to opt for personal training. I personally find my learning and production skyrockets when I’m working with another person. I find that the power of 2 or more people working on a creative task can accomplish quite a bit more that each individual on their own. Each person brings certain skills to the table that the others may not have.
Since 1999 I have been doing 1 on 1 training on a number of programs including Cubase, Acid, Fruity Loops, Pro tools, Sonar and Reason. My experience over the years helped me understand what was most important tips and tricks are that would be most helpful and productive. This also led me to making video tutorials and starting my blog.
The reason I switched from personal training to making videos was simply the ability to reach and assist more people through the internet than I possibly could privately. There were only so many people I could help within my local area & to go outside of that zone was very time consuming. The reason I return to a limited amount of private training is that I now have the ability to do sessions with anyone in the world from the comfort of my home. Now we can access my studio or yours at any time during the session. That prospect is exciting and inspiring to me.
My sincere goal has always been to empower people to be more productive and to help themÂ make music they can be proud of. Sometimes knowing all the tricks isn’t enough to give you that creative instinct. Sometimes you get stuck with too many choices and you freeze up, afraid of making the wrong choice.
This is where personal training can come to the rescue. You can have someone on your side taking you directly the the right tool in your toolbox to accomplish what you have in mind.
You’ll also have someone who can see and hear potential issues before they turn into a problem. To know your tools well is definitely important, but more important is to know which technique will give you the best result for your immediate task. This is why many people hate reading manuals. Sure the information is most likely in there (if it’s a decent manual), but who wants to dig through all 500+ pages to get to the 1 paragraph that will solve your issue? Out of the 1000’s of choices you have from moment to moment in your songwriting. wouldn’t it by niceÂ to know that you’ll only need 15 or 20 of them to finish the song in front of you?
Although I have a Remix walkthrough collection that has helped a number of people, some want that experience applied directly to their song. Perhaps your song needs different tools that I didn’t address in my video collection. For whatever the reason, I am making myself available to help you get to the next level.
When you book a Personal Training session, it will be your time to learn exactly what you want to learn. If you want to learn a certain technique, I’ll walk you through it until you have confidence performing the task yourself.
Maybe you want to watch how I might approach a certain songwriting task. Perhaps you want me to help you work on your own ideas to try to pull out the potential that hasn’t yet shined through.
Remember that very few people do everything on their own. Pretty much everyone has people they go to when they are in a jam. Even the best of the best. I do it ALL the time. There is no shame inÂ asking for help when you find yourself stuck. If I can be of service, I encourage you to contact me.
As I expect to be booked up pretty quickly, it’s probable that i’ll be raising my prices if wait times get too long. I would rather charge more and be able to work with people more quickly. Also if you would like to go in on a session with a few friends, that is also fine by me. Just make sure you are organized in what you want to learn or work on.
This should also help those of you who read my blog and watch my videos as I’ll be able to share more challenges and solutions that I come across.
What this is not
Those of you with viruses, software problems, or computer repair needs will not benefit from my services. Make sure you sort out your glitches before booking a session with me. I work pretty specifically with Ableton Live so I won’t be doing training on 3rd party synths, effects or other DAWs. If you have specific needs, make sure to discuss it with me prior to booking a session.
