I’m an experienced music producer, DJ and teacher, primarily working with Ableton. I teach public workshops, I’ve taught two courses at Pyramind in San Francisco, and you can see my tutorials on Youtube.

I’m available to provide private or public training, individually or in small groups. I’m happy to adjust my classes to any skill level, and work with you to help you achieve your goals.

I have a background in breaks, glitch-hop, techno and psychedelic music, with a focus on workflow & music theory.

I teach in my studio (in Oakland, near Piedmont Avenue), or over Skype. I’m available between 12:00 and 19:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
