Update for October 2021: I am available online via Zoom or in person in Vancouver (double vaccinated/masked) to tutor music software, electronic composition, and audio engineering.
If you are curious about music software and home recording, I have knowledge and experience.
I have more than 15 years of experience with computer audio, music software, MIDI devices, synthesizers, recording, mixing, and electronic composition.
I am ready to help you learn to produce music, to better understand technical aspects of recording and mixing.

Teaching & Other Details
I have a strong knack for filling in comprehension and practical gaps to address areas where the student is both challenged and interested to expand.
For instance, to dial in settings on a more interesting synth or software, you should have the definitions of things like "filter and frequency" in mind as well as have an ears-on approach where you turn a certain knob and go "Whoa, that sound just changed, and I can understand how." Then you will really see creative ideas on their course to produced material.
Afternoons and evenings.
