I am available as a guest lecturer on a variety of music technology related subjects. Currently I show up from time to time at Sound Training Production in Temple Bar, Dublin. I’ll be doing a series of lectures on using Ableton Live 9 for creative composition in January 2016. I’ve also recently been in there teaching about stereo microphone techniques as well as drum kit recording.
Previously I have given lectures and taught classes in Pulse Studios, Dublin and in the Sound Training Centre, Temple Bar. The subjects ranged in complexity, from basic recording technique to advanced mixing and production.
As many of the lecture topics require hands-on experience with certain pieces of hardware, I bring along the relevant toys so we can set them up, get things happening in real time, and see the benefits and pitfalls of the various pieces of equipment. Whenever possible I’ll use real-world examples as course material. For example, for the mixing lecture I would bring along mixes that have gone on to be succesfully released. For the Ableton Performance lecture I bring along the actual setup I use when touring.
