Information About Matt - Bristol teacher
This is how 4 referees rated Matt:
Hello I'm Matt, an Ex-Abbey Road Studios in-house Recording and Mixing Engineer with 10+ years of professional experience. I have worked with some of the most critically acclaimed artists in the world (Frank Ocean's Blonde, James Blake, Brockhampton, Ezra Collective, Nick Cave)
I also write and produce my own music as part of the duo Hong Kongleton **Web Address Removed**
Currently, I am also diving into the world of mental health where I am in the process of studying to become a counsellor. Here I'm looking to bridge my two worlds together by helping musicians with their underlying emotions and how creativity can be nurtured and encouraged through this process.
Through my professional life in the studio, growing trusting working relationships has always been of upmost importance when embarking on a creative journey together. When tutoring, I integrate these complimentary forces to provide an experience that is nurturing, supportive and tailored to you.
I have been tutoring online one-to-one lessons since leaving Abbey Road Studios about 2 years ago.
I hold a deep passion for music and enjoy building fruitful and effective learning relationships with my students, acting often as a mentor as well as a tutor.
It has been a joy to meet so many students who are bursting with passion and curiosity.
Areas in which I teach include:
* Mixing (mix credits include Ezra Collective, Nubiyan Twist and
tracks from BROCKHAMPTON's US Billboard No.1 Album Iridescence)
* Studio recording techniques
* Post production - editing, comping and tuning
* Pro Tools and Ableton Live DAWs
* Composition, Song Writing and Production
* Beatmaking and Programming
* Vocal Production
* Sonic Painting
* Creative blocks
* Industry advice
I enjoy working with students at all levels from beginners to advanced.
Having studied on the Tonmeister course (at the University of Surrey) I have a strong grounding in Music Technology as a subject and can help those looking to supplement their GCSE, A-Level and Degree learning.
I employ a student led approach to tutoring and I'm excited to join you on your journey at whatever point you may be thus far!
We all have our strengths, weaknesses, hurdles and bugbears. I'm here to help you identify, nurture and overcome them whilst learning skills and techniques that will help you 'level-up' in your abilities to create better and better productions, recordings and mixes.
I mainly work in Pro Tools or Ableton Live. Whilst most of the principles I teach are on a higher level that the software we use I have found that sessions work better when we are speaking the same DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) language. That being said I have had fruitful teaching experiences with tutees working in Logic, FL Stuio etc.
I primarily use Zoom along with screen sharing and realtime audio streaming software.
