I don’t give Skype lessons, and here’s why
Some people asking if I give one-on-one Skype lessons on Psytrance production. I suppose I’ll be asked this question over again, so let me put my answer here to make everyone’s life easier.
In short, the answer is “no” — I don’t give Skype lessons. I’m sorry. But I guess this statement might cause even more questions, so I would like to give a little explanation and tell about the motivation behind my decision.
I was always surprised that there was no place a young music producer could ask a question and get an answer from someone who knows the industry. Typically, producers don’t share their secrets not to mention that most of them simply out of reach. Some forum boards with helpful communities are still out there, but most of them are abandoned due to all traffic is driven away to social media.
That’s how I launched the “Advice” section with a sole mission — to help aspiring producers like myself.
I never intended to be a full-time tutor, I’m an acting music producer first with a lot of other things to do. Practically, it means I have to choose wisely whether should I spend the bits of available time on a Skype lesson or the “Advice” blog because I can’t afford myself doing both.
And if you look at this question of choice from the mission’s perspective I set myself — to help other producers — the answer is obvious. Writing a blog which thousands will read is much more efficient than spending the same time talking with just one person.
But to push this mission even further, I would like to make such system that will be scalable and independent of my availability. This is why I’m thinking to make a full educational course.
As you can see I have quite bold plans on education but there is simply no room for personal teaching. At least for now.
