The Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) I use include: Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro X, Studio One and Pro Tools. I’m open to all genres of music but specialize in electronic hip hop.

Hi everybody! Have you always been curious about music production and becoming a producer but have no idea where to start? I can help students of all ages develop skills in everything involved in music production. The Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) I use include: Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro X, Studio One and Pro Tools. I’m open to all genres of music but specialize in electronic hip hop. I have an extensive background in music production, mixing and mastering, song writing and ear training. I have worked in the studio with such A-list producers as Noah “40” Shebib, DJ Khaled, Metro Boomin, Just Blaze and many more. I’m one of the most sought after music production and technology instructors in the music industry to date.

I’m available for 45 minute and 1 hour lessons for music production. I highly recommend an initial 2 hour session for beginners as it's important to determine what your goals are, your musical experience and background and your ability to retain complex processes.
I am also a very experienced sound designer, recording engineer, DJ and music technology evangelist. I have several years of experience performing live shows, being a the keynote speaker at numerous music technology workshops for the likes of Ableton, Native Instruments and Roli and have been a featured artist on their YouTube channels.

If my students express an interest in turning their passion into a career, I aim to help them not only with the technical and creative aspects of their goals, but also helping them develop their musical presence & brand around their art.

I strive to be flexible with my time so even though I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I have often offered make-up lessons for those dedicated students.
If you want to work with a musical mentor who has a life long passion for music, is an active live performer and DJ, and has a no-nonsense “tell it like it is” personality, then I’m the instructor for you!

Composition (Music)

Composition (Music)

I have taught composition for over 6 years to students of all ages, so whether you want to create a simple melody, learn more about chord structures and progressions, or multilayer textures with symphonic instruments (or software based instruments) I make sure that I break down everything in a way that’s easy for my students to digest. Music composition can be complex but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Let’s create something amazing together.

Music Production

Music Production

Music production is not just my occupation, it’s a way of life. Music is a part of everything that I do. I am constantly learning and mastering the intricacies of music production hardware and software, as well as staying dead center on the pulse of the music industry. Whether it’s a new drum machine or VST, or sound expansion, I make sure that I know how it works and how I can best incorporate into my workflow. I was the first female producer to be a featured artist and software demonstrator for Native Instruments and Roli. I was also responsible for training the music industry’s top A-list producers on Maschine and Ableton. I was even a Research and Development contributor for the Apple sponsored Roli consumer product “Blocks”. I want my students to make this process entirely their own. Once I give you the tools, you can go as far as your imagination will take you.

Songwriting

Songwriting

Being able to write a song is an amazing skill that is as fulfilling as it is challenging. And yet there is no right or wrong way to write a song. I have been a songwriter over 10 years and I have written hundreds of Pop, R&B, Alternative, Soul and Hip Hop songs. I have been a songwriter under ASCAP since 2010. Along the way I have collaborated with and developed many singers, songwriters, and rappers ultimately allowing them to create songs that truly move people. I believe in the importance of developing good songwriting habits, building a strong song structure formula and making sure that your heart and passion for music shines through in the process.

Lessons that are both fun and educational!

I’ve been working with Stoni for the last couple of months and she has been a godsend with her expertise with the mk3 and music knowledge as a whole. She’s definitely the teacher for all serious producers.

Very helpful

Stoni was very helpful and knowledgeable, and solved my problem in Logic. I highly recommended her, and look forward to her help with future questions. There's much more to learn.

Chris , 2 lessons with Stoni

Knowledgeable and very helpful.

I'm a novice learning Ableton Live so we're starting from square one. Stoni is very knowledgeable and willing to teach students at any level. I would highly recommend her!

Rocco, 3 lessons with Stoni

Learned alot!

Stoni is so knowledgeable and easy going! Right away she cleared up any concepts and misunderstandings that I had about music production. I felt at ease as she showed me the ropes for Logic Pro, highlighting the technical aspects I needed to get familiar with before I could fully bring out my creative side. Thanks Stoni!

A GREAT Session!!

Stoni is the real deal!! We literally looked at my DAW and she gave me advice that I could start implementing today. I walked away from the session with more knowledge and motivation to get on the ball. I'm looking forward to our session!

ProTools

Stoni was incredible! She taught me more in an hour than I've learned in 6 weeks at school. I am used to using FL Studio but my school requires me to use ProTools and I was getting lost and confused. Stoni helped me understand the tool. I'm looking forward to another session this week and getting caught up! Thank you Stoni.

Stoni C. changed everything for me.

Sometimes we meet people in life that change everything for the better. In a quest to hone my craft and skill set as a music producer, Stoni C is that person. In the past I have tried to learn certain aspects of music production as best I could. But thankfully Stoni C has filled holes in my game to great satisfaction. You are losing if you don't train with her. That's real talk. DC

Knowledgeable, calm, and talented teacher

Even before the first lesson, Stoni was really great about getting specific about my goals for the online tutoring sessions. She’s given two lessons so far, the first was an overview of FL Studio 20, covering drum programming, organizing drum patterns, and how to place pre-made chords that come with the program to start melodic ideas. In the second lesson, we covered the mixer in FL Studio, export settings, and comparisons of sound quality. In addition to helping me learn more about the software I’m using, she has taught me a lot already about the creative process and about the workflow of beat-making. I am already feeling better about beat-making, and have a greater sense of knowledge and wisdom in FL.
