Kinda breezed through this course and it's kinda weak.

There were a few things I wanted to brush up on and this course really misses the mark. For example the whole "Quick Punch VS Loop Recording" video doesn't even discuss the "Pre-post" record and multiple takes. He also fails to mention that if you do this in "Destructive record" you might very well throw away a better take. The whole making a beat with Boom is basally useless unless you set up a tempo and meter first.... Sorry to gripe, but not impressed.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing and performing music as soon as I had access to a guitar at the ripe old age of fifteen. Later on I branched out into backing vocals, bass and some keys.

2. What training have you had?

Studied recording and music performance at MDCC and FIU back in Miami where i’m from. After college, I earned three certifications in computer hardware, Microsoft operating systems and networking, as well as becoming a Pro Tools Certified Operator in Music here in Los Angeles, where I currently reside.

3. When did you get into recording?

Between my late teens and early twenties, I was constantly changing my mind as far as whether I wanted to just focus on my instrument, or on recording and production. In the end, I decided to do both!

4. People you have worked with/for?

Alan Morse (Spock’s Beard), YoYo, Johnny “Vatos” Hernandez, Roothub, Heroeck, Dave Goldberg / Duane Allen Quartet, Vivo, The Noise Majestic, M-Audio, Ableton, Native Instruments, Focusrite / Novation, The Los Angeles Recording School and Obedia.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Teaching was at first, something I did out of necessity to make a living upon graduating from college! However, I soon found that I really had a knack for it and expanded my repertoire from just teaching Music to include Music Recording and Production.

Having taught one-on-one, all the way up to groups of sixty students at all skill levels, I have learned ways to explain a concept from several different angles and to relate even complex and abstract concepts to everyday situations. This makes it much easier to understand the highly technical information you need to know to comfortably find your way around a recording studio or DAW.
