It's easy to fall into the music traditions of the 1800s, which are still the "music" we're supposed to learn. But the music we actually listen to is so different from those traditions!

Let's get the ideas from your brain into the world! Video, Music, Audio, Math, or any combination. You'd be surprised how much overlap there is between these 4!

It's easy to fall into the music traditions of the 1800s, which are still the "music" we're supposed to learn. But the music we actually listen to is so different from those traditions! Together, we'll explore the simplicity and the intricacies of the music you enjoy, and uncover the secrets of what makes you love the music you love. Within a few sessions, you'll be making music you're proud to show to the world. Oh, did I mention that you don't need hundreds of dollars worth of equipment? We can start with free software, or use whatever you have access to. If you're using a software for music or audio, I've probably used it. If you're working with any studio-grade equipment, or are interested in investing in something new, I'm here to help you find exactly what you're looking for.

For almost 14 years, I've helped tons of students feel confident in their musical, technological, and listening skills. If you love music and want to explore it from a new perspective, you're the right candidate for lessons with me.

Video Production

I've been making videos for over 13 years. I use various editing softwares, but I'm an expert in Final Cut Pro X. I've led various training sessions in DaVinci Resolve, FCPX, and iMovie. My expertise is especially in creating Virtual Ensemble videos, where musicians appear to be playing all together even though they recorded independently. I'm also focused on pacing, sound design, and musical timing. My other video experience doing marketing videos, historical videos, and tutorials.

Music Production

With expertise in Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton, Garageband, Soundtrap, and video editing, I continue to discover creative possibilities for my own art every day. I've helped countless people start their own path towards creativity, be they producers, music teachers, engineers, or elementary schoolers. While many engineers at this level have expertise with extremely expensive equipment, I've focused on keeping my practices well balanced between budget and quality, with the hopes of promoting more equitable practices to the world of music production and recording technology.

well educated teacher

Not only was Jake able to fix my troubles connecting an old tube amp to Logic Pro problem which many before him couldn’t but I learned a bunch of stuff that I did not know before. Highly recommended.

Extraordinarily helpful

Jake helped answer questions my son had about music equipment and schools. We already signed up for another session so that he could work on music skills. My son said he was patient and very knowledgeable and looked forward to working with him again.

Wendy, 4 lessons with Jake

Jake was organized, prepared, and with a supportive and encouraging style, helped me over a hump I had been struggling with for more than a month.

I found it helpful that, since my problem was related to music/Final Cut, he had enough background to understand immediately what I needed. Importantly, he kept "on task" so our hour didn't waste time on side-issues.
