The Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) I use include: Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro X, Studio One and Pro Tools. If you’re interested in mastering Maschine, Komplete Kontrol and the MPC, I have extensive knowledge and experience with those as well. I’m open to all genres of music...

Hi there!
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. If you’re interested in mastering Maschine, Komplete Kontrol and the MPC, I have extensive knowledge and experience with those as well. 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 1 hour lessons for music production. For beginners, 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, AVID 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 with the technical and creative aspects of their goals and also help them develop their skills.

I strive to be flexible with my time but I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy.

If you want to work with a musical instructor 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.

Literally the best

Stoni is wise, talented, adaptive, and knows her stuff. Don't look at anyone else. Just book her! She has an incredible base of experience from which to draw. She is patient and she knows how to adapt her knowledge so she can share as much with you as possible. She is extremely patient, but she also shows up as herself and I love that about her. She has worked with all the greats in the industry.

Victoria, 1 lesson with Stoni

An understanding and directed teacher

Stoni was able to illustrate the functions and features of the Logic DAW in an easy to understand way. And even more helpful was her ability to redirect my focus in Logic from a visual POV back to an audio one!

Nick, 1 lesson with Stoni

Very knowledgeable and patient with me

This was my first lesson with Miss Stoni she made me feel comfortable and helped me have a better understanding standing of the maschine plus. I Look forward to many lesson with stoni

Reese, 12 lessons with Stoni

She knows her stuff

Stoni reviewed the different parts of the Ableton user interface with me to make sure I knew enough terminology to move on to creating clips in the session view. She let me drive part of the time. So, I got some hands on practice. We worked with arming tracks, counting in from the metronome, and looking how to manipulate the midi information after it is recorded.

Brandon, 21 lessons with Stoni

Very skilled and very patient!

I don't have much experience with DAWs, but even when I struggle to describe my questions, Stoni quickly finds out what I need and explains it perfectly. I look forward to each lesson, it's a lot of fun and there's a lot to learn!

Soraya, 11 lessons with Stoni

Expert very experienced at teaching

Stoni was able to zero in on where I most needed help, with the comfort and swiftness of one who is an expert at what they do, and is very experienced at teaching it. A wonderful lesson!

Katherine, 1 lesson with Stoni

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.

Toby, 13 lessons with Stoni

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!
