Our 13 year old son really enjoys and has learnt a lot from his lessons with Mike. He chose DJ lessons over music production, and Mike helped us find a suitable inexpensive DJ device. Initially I stayed for the lessons so I could follow along, but then felt very comfortable leaving them to it while I did errands. I recommend Mike as an instructor, and he is a really nice guy.


Really great outcome! Mike gave me a 4 sessions' course to help me improving my mixing process and I'm very happy of the diversity of ideas that came out of it, as well we reminding me some key steps. A step up for me from his wonderful studio!
