Personal Description:

I produce original score for commercials, fiction films and documentaries as well as releasing music under the monikers Franz Kirmann and Sir Ouakam and with classic / electronica crossover project Piano Interrupted.
I have had 14 releases in the last 6 years on labels in the UK, Canada and Hong Kong as well as countless live performances and remixes.
I run labels Days Of Being Wild and Photogram Recordings and teach music technology privately from my home studio.

Tutoring Experience:

I'm relatively new to teaching, having done it privately in one to one session for the last 6 months.

Tutoring Approach:

I mainly produce with Ableton Live, a unique software thanks to its intuitive approach to music making. So you will be learning from that software but all principles applies to all production platforms.

My aim is to teach you how to make music with tools that are available at low cost and can run on your own personal computer.

I cover sequencing, sampling, recording, VST, Synthesizers, Effects, Audio editing, MIDI and controllers. I also look at how today's technology can helps your creativity through the use of apps and other experimental software.

Before the first session I would have a chat with you to understand what you want to achieve and get out of the lessons.
We can work from my home studio and I would consider traveling to yours if at reasonable distance.

It's important to say that I will not teach you about music theory or writing music. Knowledge in that department is always useful but not completely necessary depending on what you want to do.
My course is geared towards understanding how music software works and how you can use them your way to produce your own sound.

Technology allows the opportunity to teach students with very little musical background by having them create and compose music.
It's very hands on. It's important that you find your own way to make music.
Music technology allows me to take you through the process of understanding music and what goes into creating music.
It's applied learning. You apply yourself to the practice by actually composing.

Hope to hear from you soon.
