MUSIC PRODUCTION

I have over 6 years experience working with various professional grade studio software such as FL Studio, Logic Pro X, and REAPER, which is my main program. Depending on your starting level, I can teach you anything from mix essentials like EQ and compression, DAW workflow and functionality, composition and sound design. My biggest track has over 35,000 views on Youtube. Genres I have produced include Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop, EDM, R&B and other. I’m happy to provide samples upon request! I look forward to working with you.

GUITAR

I’m a 13 year guitarist with a number of awards under my belt: Outstanding Soloist award (three times), Outstanding Pit Musician Award, Louis Armstrong Jazz Award and was Jazz Section Leader. I play Alt and Prog Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Funk, although the fundamentals are similar no matter what genre you love! We will learn you play YOUR favorite songs and you will become a better guitarist every day. Playing samples are available. Can’t wait to hear from you!

FRENCH

I started with French 12 years ago with 6 years of education plus 6 years of private study. I’ve worked as a French/English Medical Interpreter and as a French Technical Rep. Most importantly, I’ve been through all the struggles that currently learners face when trying to become fluent, and I have many tips and tricks to share to break down those barriers. I have collected and created a bunch of resources to make learning fast and effective. Shoot me a message and we can get started! Thanks.

Great first EDM session

My 12 year old son had been composing EDM in FL Studio for a couple of years. He’s learned a lot from videos but we thought some instruction could help too. We were very happy with the first session and will do more. My son is learning things he didn’t know and really likes being able to have an actual interactive session, beyond his usual diet of YouTube.

Patient and Kind Tutor

Dean has been working with my son (9) doing guitar lessons for a little while now. He is able to tutor at a consistent time each week and is kind enough to work with me when the holidays or school get in the way of our normal timing. My son spends the class learning and laughing, it's great.

Lindsay, 8 lessons with Dean

Knowledgeable and friendly

Dean is very knowledgeable and allows the class to be very free. He has great patience and adjust ways of teaching as long as you give your honest feedback. Sometimes I wish I could do a two hour session instead of one.

Leo, 2 lessons with Dean

Great experience

We have been having Dean teach our seventh grader how to play guitar is a bit of an extra curricular activity to supplement distance learning. We do 3 1-hour lessons per week and it has been the highlight of the learning experiences we’ve had. He is punctual and obviously very good at his job. My son has really enjoyed his lessons and has progressed quite a bit considering he started never having touched a guitar. Very professional and personable.

Ronald, 31 lessons with Dean

Great guitar tutor, came prepared and was very professional

Had a guitar lesson with my oldest son (9yrs) and Dean was very easy to work with and my son really enjoyed the lesson. Prior to the lesson Dean asked what type of music he liked to play so he could tailor the lesson around his interests. Both my son and I would highly recommend Dean.

Mark, 6 lessons with Dean

Music 🎼

Dean is doing a great job with working with my son I think that his temperament is good with my son as well he understands the place that the mood of where my son is out and I think that he’s getting the tutoring he’s getting my son Tutoring but at the same time I think he’s aware that that my son needs some time to really get into this project so I highly recommend him for tutoring and I will continue to study with him thank you
