An online video course with an approach that makes songwriting a more intuitive & smooth experience.
I´m a producer, songwriter, music-engineer, guitar player since 3 years old, and I love making music!
I have produced and mixed music in Ableton Live, over the last 15 years, so I know exactly what you need to learn to get the best head start.
Over the last decade, I’ve been teaching singers who are tired of always being dependent on producers to write and record themselves, so they can start to act upon their goals and dreams, with great success. This experience has led me to create this course, and I hope you will like it too!
In this video course, you will write, record, and finish a powerful song inside of Ableton Live with only two elements, a piano sound and your voice.
You'll be guided through everything you need to know, with detailed step-by-step videos, so you can focus on just doing without overcomplicating the process.
