Meet your instructor.
As a musician, DJ, and producer with 30+ years of experience, I’ve learned a lot about how to create good music and how to connect with listeners.
As a father of two, I understand the importance of letting your kids discover their interests and develop their talents.
As an educator, I’ve made it my mission to help young people everywhere discover their “inner beatmaker” and make the music they love.
I’ve lived my dream as an artist by traveling the world with Madonna and making a living through music.
