How do you make awesome music in Ableton?

Start with the music that excites you. Listen, analyze and notice all the sounds you're hearing.

Then, you make a soundalike. In the process, we analyze everything you hear, and learn all the tricks of recording, sound design, producing and mixing.

Then, you try making your own music, using the sounds you know and new sounds you discover on the fly.

One project at a time, you figure out how music works, master the software, and become capable of making just about any sound you want to hear.

I've been making music with Ableton for a while- I made my first record as a songwriter almost entirely in Ableton 9. I learned everything by trial and error and a lot of YouTube watching, so I can help you avoid the initial stumbles I made and set you up for success with the most powerful software on the market for music creation.

I won't be lecturing you- we'll be working together, collaborating on music you can be proud of. Shoot me a message ...

About Ethan

My musical life started at the piano when I was four. I've spent the last five years helping students understand the sounds that speak to them and bring them into their own music-making. I spent my early years playing piano, then picked up the saxophone, which took me to Berklee College of Music,

Ethan is such a great guy, and he taught me more about singing than I thought I was capable of learning. You're missing out if you haven't studied with him
Nicolas
Ethan is truly an amazing saxophone teacher! I started learning the saxophone on my own but had been plateauing for months. Thanks to Ethan, I learned very useful tips - ranging from music theory to practical advises - and I can now feel myself progressing again. What’s impressed me the most with Ethan are his passion for the music, his dedication to transmitting his love for the saxophone and his desire to find the find the best teaching approach for each of his students.
Matthew
The way I view music and life in general has shifted in the best way possible. Stoked to have been apart of Ethan's lessons and recommend anyone interested in music to do the same. The things I never even begun to understand about music are now commonplace and serve to better my understanding of music as a whole.

I've been taking lessons for a little over 2 yeara, and what I love the most about Jonah is that he's so flexible. Not only does he respond quickly to communication and schedule changes, he is also willing to change up the lesson plan if something isn't working or is too difficult. He is very supportive as well, and encourages you to practice without being incredibly demanding. Overall, best teacher I've ever had.

Jonah brought me to the door of Guitar and helped me with building the fundamental skill set of playing. I was a beginner, I am still are. His teaching is fabulous - focusing on your needs, building connections, being patient, and encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone. 200% highly recommended!

Jarod is an excellent teacher. He’s very knowledgeable and helpful. He’s patient and really listens to your needs, wants and concerns, which is a rare quality to find. I’ve enjoyed working with him and will continue to in the future. Highly recommend!!!
Hannah M.
Jarod is an INCREDIBLE teacher. In a month's time working with him I've made serious progress in using Ableton. He is so patient and helps break down and explain concepts, in ways that I can internalize and remember, that no Youtube tutorial could help me understand. I highly recommend him for anyone at any stage of their music production journey, he will take you from where you are to where you want to be.

For so long, I felt stuck and overwhelmed using Ableton. The mass of knowledge about music and music theory and production and mixing seemed so like so much! Thanks to Jarod, I no longer feel that way. It feels totally doable and way less overwhelming. I am way more confident working in Ableton and feel motivated and excited instead of dread opening the DAW every day. Instead of continuing to hit my head against a wall watching video after video, I am so thankful I chose to do lessons with him.

Jarod is super knowledgable, friendly, engaged and eager to share. Highly recommend him to anyone!

Online Ableton Teacher

The main goal of an Ableton class is to be able to effectively use all the tools that you are given to achieve your specific goal. Each student will have a different idea of what they want to create with this software, and its really important to be able to remove the technical obstacles and get straight to the creating. I will enable each student to be able to better visualize their projects, and I will train their ears to be able to better listen to sound such that they can understand the specifics behind creative decisions. As a producer you have to take both microscopic and macroscopic views when it comes to a piece of music, understanding how both a small sound can affect the progression of a story though music, and how the story itself unfolds over time. This can all be done through practical training in Ableton Live.
