I am experienced in contemporary music composition and sound design on Ableton Live. The fundamental principle behind my teaching style is active learning. As such I am also asking my students the why as well as teaching them the what. Ableton is made up of many simple components that when fully understood can be combined to created incredible unique sounds.
I also believe that every student has their own learning style. As such a crucial part of teaching is not just speaking but also listening. As a teacher I take the time to understand how students disseminate and retain knowledge, so I can convey the lessons in a language that works for them.
Hand in hand with my flexible student oriented teaching approach, I am also a diligent planner. After I know where a student is starting at, I create a long term series of lesson plans with each individual lesson designed as an individual building block in the overall house of knowledge and skill the student will build.
Overall I strive to empower my students, giving them the information and tools, and then letting them run wild with all their passion and imagination.
I am experienced with in Logic Pro and Ableton Live. I became a Beat Lab Academy (Los Angeles) Certified Music Producer last year, and have devoted countless hours over the past 10 years teaching myself and endlessly experimenting with the software so I know it back to front. As well as producing my own music, I have also scored for television.
Although music teaching is a new endeavor for me I have 5 years experience in individual tutoring, ranging from soccer coaching to Math and reading tutoring. I am experienced in catering each lesson to the individuals needs and learning style.

Perfect! Josh helped me tremendously, when I found myself stuck with one of my tracks. He provided me with a whole lot of new ideas regarding automation, the creative use of time-based effects and walked me through his way of producing music.
He has a lot of experience and expertise in Ableton Live environment as well as Logic Pro. He arrived on time and well prepared. He also communicates his knowledge with ease.
All in all, I highly recommend Josh's services.
