Develop into an electronic music producer while connecting with like-minded peers.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  "That first class in 2018 was a game changer. My son realized through music production, he could be his own band and much more!  He traded his drum kit for a production setup and the rest is history.   Years later he continues to learn, be challenged, and is just as excited to attend class like it was his 1st day.  He has found the confidence to build up his social media presence and collaborate with other music artists from around the United States in and out of class.  We are so proud to be a part of Mix Major. " Jenny (Parent)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  "Mix Major is a great music school! My son has learned a lot from Eric's professional musical prowess and has enjoyed every weekly lessons. We are so fortunate that we have found this school, not only for its qualifications as a good music school, but because of its personal touch.  Eric truly cares for his students and that's what makes him and his school so special." - Grace (Parent)
