I am an Logic Pro, Ableton Live tutor and with seven years experience of teaching and holding guest lectures at School Of Sound Recording, The Manchester College, Armstrong Learning, Leeds College Of Music and Newall Green High School.

I’ve been using Logic Pro for my productions since 2003 and have several releases and remixes through my record own label Splank Records and various others. About three years I got into Ableton live as a vehicle for DJing and since went on to play and tour with DJ duo Groove Allegiance in top UK clubs such as Fabric and Sankeys and tour China, Canada, US and Europe.

I specialise in all aspects of using Ableton and Logic to build tracks, record, produce and mix. Drawing upon my experience I can teach any musical style and at any level of experience. Courses can be tailor made to suit the individual putting you in control of what you specifically want to learn and for how long.

I currently co-run a studio called Oscillate Studio in the Northern Quarter area of Manchester City centre. Lessons can be held from there or home visits can be arranged.

Please check the studio website for more details
