About Alvin

I believe that learning is a livelong process. Graduating in the top 5% of my major and awarded the McDSP Achievement Award, I have come to realize that focus and a great attitude will take you a long way. As the most sought after tutor in the music production division of Berklee, I have helped many students develop many skills and go on to be the more progressive students in their respective classes. I was very instrumental in helping develop the mentor and tutor program into a now on-going fully functional program for the music production division. The program is now in its sophomore year and helping every single student that enters the major.

I offer one-on-one lessons in music theory, guitar playing, music production, and mixing. Being a working producer and engineer myself, I try to bridge the gap of the theoretical and practical with real life examples and scenarios as well as provide in depth explanations into methodologies employed to understand certain concepts. I have a in depth understanding of Pro Tools and Logic pro as I myself am a heavy user of both DAWs.

I do have a 4-hour cancellation policy however I do offer make up classes.

I look forward to be hearing from you.
