What Artists Are Saying...

Graham The Empire
Artist / Producer

Dan has such a vast amount of knowledge on Ableton Live and is able to produce amazing music in a quick, intuitive, and thoughtful way.  There isn't anything I've thrown at him that he hasn't been able to guide me on, even showing me things that I did not know were possible.

Phillip Austrom
Touring Musician / Producer

I can't recommend Dan enough, he is an excellent Ableton instructor.  In a short amount of time, he helped me gain a stronger grasp of Ableton's inner workings, refine my sound design and develop a more efficient workflow!

Producer

I was more than blown away with everything I learned... I had no musical background prior.  I feel like I got a foundation to start my music production career...I can hit up producers with any questions I have and always get an answer or suggestion to help me out.
