What People Are Saying
Heath is awesome! I reached out to him looking to hone my skills in ableton live. He responded very quickly and helped me schedule a session at my convenience. He is very knowledgeable, explains things in a very easy to understand manner and genuinely cares about the students success. He answers any questions you may have, provides excellent training and feedback, and even throws a few questions your way to see if you are paying attention :p I would highly recommend reaching out to Heath if you are looking to learn ableton live or level up your production skills!
So you know that thing you have a question about? He has an answer, and an answer for the questions you didn't even know to ask. Think you're getting everything out of Ableton? Oh, It's iceberg time....... and you're not seeing all the insane functionality that lies beneath the water line. Heath is not only awesome, but kind and funny and insanely knowledgeable. I just learned something I'd been wondering about for years. I can't wait for our next lesson. Now excuse me while I go down a rabbit hole of new techniques I just learned. Heath will teach you how to sound and produce like you. The tools are there and he's the best choice you could make for your art. 5 stars isn't enough. Truly.....
Heath covered everything we had agreed before the session plus extra bits on top. He even went beyond the lesson time to answer some more questions that I had. 10/10
