WHAT I DO
Anyone who’s read David Byrne (Talking Heads) recent book ‘How music Works” will have seen his thoughts on the recording industry and the future of Recording Studios. Basically outside the large Abbey Road/ Rockfield Studios, they are in decline as Artists can do more and more at home. Sadly this has happened in Stroud recently so why not take advantage of my great facilities!

Once your tracks are recorded, next comes the mixing process. This process blends all of the individual sounds down to the final Stereo or 5.1 audio. Every instrument is carefully assessed in how it fits into the mix and affects the overall sound.
Bring your multi-track projects to me and let me breathe life and energy into your ideas. I have experience of mixing all genres of music, which includes: Metal, Hard Rock, Blues, Pop, Drum & Bass, Hip Hop, R&B, Dance right the way through to, Classical, Acoustic, Ambient / Chill Out, Spoken Word, Reggae and Dub and all variations of World Music. As a Certified Logic Pro Engineer, I am able to correct timing and pitch issues but it’s best to have a chat before sending me files to work on.
BOUTIQUE SINGER/SONGWRITER STUDIO
Singer songwriters can take advantage of my home studio . It’s a boutique professional-quality facility with high quality equipment , ideal for singer-songwriters, and musicians wishing to make the most of their material.
Check out the studio equipment page to see what kit is available to you.
Logic Pro, Native Instruments and Machine Studio training is all available for those who want to improve their skillsets.
Most people just jump in and start making music with Apple’s (or others for that matter) products. They end up using only 10% of the features of the products and taking ages over simple tasks due to poor workflow. Most can benefit from a training session of a few hours or more.
I create a custom training and tuition depending on your objectives, current level and budgets. I have worked with complete beginners and professionals who want to write and record their ideas but don’t have the time or patience and simply wish to fast-track their learning so they can create quality recordings.

Whatever your age, Come and learn Electric guitar with me. My customers are all ages and like all types of music. Here you learn by playing, the lesson is all about playing whether its learning chords or lead improvisation.
Here we spend the lessons focussing on your musical desires. Lead playing involves learning skills, techniques and improving your physical dexterity whilst playing in key and understanding your scales and arpeggios and how to apply them in a song context. learning chords is through learning real songs, not dreary chord charts.
I love my Taylor 714 special edition. It is the most beautiful thing I have ever owned. Coupled with my AER Compact 60 I can really cut through. Acoustic lessons are either Fingerstyle and Flatpicking depending upon the style of music you want to play. Come do your grades or learn to play songs from your favourite artists!
