Do you have the DAW blues? Is Pro Tools giving you fits while you try and coax the best sounds out of it? Then perhaps I can help.

My name is Michael, and I am currently co-owner of School of Rock Studios in Cherry Hill NJ. SOR Studios (created BY musicians FOR musicians) is a new recording facility housed in the Cherry Hill School of Rock franchise. Although it's primary purpose is to teach kids who can play music how to properly utilize a recording studio and how to get great sounds out of it, we are open to the general public as well.

My studio experience goes back to the 70's where I was mentored in the art of production by Chris Huston, who was the engineer/producer for a band named "War", which had a number of hits in the 70's and was a Grammy award winner. I have been producing a number of unheard-of local projects for the past 10 years, and am familiar with DAW software, and very familiar with computers, having also been in the I/T business for almost 20 years.

So if you need help getting the sounds happening, I will look forward to being of assistance to you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Music Production

I am the current co-owner of a studio in Cherry Hill, NJ. I have 20+ years of music production experience, mentored by Chris H. (producer/engineer for the band "War" which had a number of hits in the 70's). I am currently working on a self-produced CD at the studio using Pro Tools for Mac.

Beginning 2/11/14, I will be teaching students how to function in a recording studio, starting with studio set up, microphone placement, using the DAW software (Pro Tools), engineering, mixing, and production.

Over 20 years of musical experience, I have worked with, at various times, Lindsey Buckingham, and Engelbert Humperdinck. I am a skilled bassist/keyboardist.

I am skilled with the software, but more importantly, I teach students how to use their ears as well as their computer skills.
