Hello potential student!

My name is Kevin R. I love to meet new people and enjoy sharing my knowledge of music production, and music recording/mixing. I occasionally teach a few HS students music production in my studio located in BX, NY. The industry is constantly evolving both technically, as well as business-wise, and I am a student of the industry; I never stop learning and enjoy the process. I'd like to be able to help you be the best producer, artist, and engineer you can be. With that said, one of the keys of being successful in this industry is diversification. Let me help you diversify your skillset! Looking forward to hearing from you.
Lastly, if you need help mixing your project, I'm available for production and mixing services as well as helping you mix your song virtually!

Music Production

Music Production

Hello, and thank you for your interest. I've been producing, recording, and mixing music for major and indie artists for over 2 decades. I have extensive knowledge on the latest plugins for DAW's like Digital Performer, Logic, and Protools. I also have extensive knowledge on vocal and instrument recording techniques using analog gear. I'm old enough to have recorded and mix using analog and digital tape, and young enough to have mastered the art of digital recording. In essence, I'm old school with a new school mentality! I believe creativity flows from all sources, even the unschooled can introduce new ideas! I'm open for it all and love to share my knowledge and experience. Check me out, you won't be disappointed.

Knowledgeable Music producer

Mr. Kevin has taught me so much in one hour, with my first lesson with him. He was very precise on teaching me about Keeping the right timing, and rhythm, to formulate the right beat. In our first lesson, Mr Kevin had informed me, that me being a drummer, I needed to learn how to make the beat flow, and not put to much into the track to throw off the rhythm of the beat. I had even made my first beat, with the support of mr Kevin. His experience, and knowledge, has overall made me understand the full duty, and responsibility, of a Music producer in assisting the artist to bring the track alive, and also catering to a artist goals, for the song that they create. I am eager to take a second lesson with Mr Kevin. I know with his help, I can make my Music production dreams come true.

Kwiz is the best!

I have grown so much through working with Kwiz. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind and patient. YouTube is great, but working with Kwiz has helped accelerate my growth and understand concepts I couldn’t have done by just googling. He’s also really affirming which builds my confidence as a beginner.

Kristen, it's always a pleasure working with you. I can hear your growth as a producer, and mixer. It's one thing to actually learn different mixing and production techniques, and another to properly apply what you've learned. You do both! Not only are you a great student, but your music is also great as well! Can't wait till you release your art for the world to hear!

Knowledgeable and Creative Tutor

Kevin was very helpful and has a great background in music. He helped me feel comfortable with navigating through Logic and working with mixer settings. He was very encouraging, and gave me some insight into improvisation.

Tutor responded:

Thank you John! It was a pleasure working with you. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need more help or insight.

Very passionate and knowledgeable tutor

I've had several songs that I finished arranging, but could not achieve the sound I wanted, so I messaged Kevin to help me with mixing. From the first lesson I found him extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the music industry. Kevin helped me find mistakes in the mixes that needed some work on and gave useful advice to convert decent mixes to great-sounding tracks. Throughout our lessons, he taught me how to improve the depth, width and height of my mixes, bringing my quality to another level. Kevin was also helpful explaining the mechanism of music industry and gave me advice on copyrighting and promoting my music. Highly recommend Kevin to anyone interested in music production!

Aleksandr, it was a pleasure working with you! Your music is amazing, and I see you going far in the music industry if that's the path you choose. Continued success in your productions!

Kwiz leveled up my mixing immediately

Kwiz is the teacher I’ve needed for so long. I’ve spent years of feeling lost in my mixing, always not really sure of what I’m doing or looking for, and Kwiz has helped me find a footing and understand mixing concepts and tools in an accessible yet thorough manner. He helped me learn what my plugins actually do and how to use them, and he was also able to quickly identify things I was doing incorrectly or inefficiently and helped me fix those quickly. His ear is remarkable - Kwiz’s mix critique was very helpful, and he was able to swiftly notice mix issues and explain how to fix them. My only complaint is that I didn’t take lessons with him earlier, as I probably could have had better mixes in the past. Oh well. Can’t recommend Kwiz enough.

Thank you Nathan! It was a pleasure helping a talented musician and composer such as yourself; your music is amazing! I'm looking forward to working with you in the future!

Exceptional

100% recommend Kwiz to anyone out there looking for help with music. Really knowledgeable, kind, and patient teacher. Didn’t even need to show him or play any of my music for him to understand what I needed to learn. Thank you.

Knowledgable Tutor with great education skills.

Mr. Kwiz is the tutor I had been looking for a long time. After just one lesson with Kevin, My mind has been opened and I can take my audio programming skills to new heights. I would definitely recommend Kevin to take you music production skills to the next level.

Thank you Ruben! I really appreciate that from a solid and gifted music professional such as yourself!

this guy is the best!

I find Kwiz very knowledgeable with Logic and the recording process. His continues to amaze me every lesson. He not only can explain the software but has the recording theory to go with it

John, 13 lessons with Kevin Kwiz
Tutor responded:

Thank you John, greatly appreciated! I'm glad that I can help you with your current project; it's coming along nicely. Keep up the great work.

So So helpful

So I've been stuck on several topics in mixing and have never understood the answers given on the Internet or the different explanations on Youtube - Kevin not only effectively clarified these topics in one lesson, but he was also patient and friendly and overall just a pleasure to learn from. It was so amazing to be taught by someone who is so clearly completely in love with his craft. I have already booked my next lesson.
