OUR STORY

I remember it well, the moment I decided to make my very first YouTube Mixing Tutorial, back in 2015. I had graduated from The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in 2012 and spent more than 3 years in the bowels of the Hollywood Recording Scene, working my way up from an unpaid Intern, to Assistant Engineer, to even Running Sessions on my own. I look back on that time fondly, not so much for the money I made (or didn't make) or people I got to meet, (Basically every A-list artist at the time) but for the knowledge I gained and the experience I took with me. Several months had passed since I left Hollyweird and I started to yearn for that feeling of community that's felt whenever music and audio are combined. I had since used the know-how I picked up from life and from school to build myself a pretty nice home studio. I continued to write, record and produce my own music, as well as that of my brother and a few other local bands. All of which helped to satisfy that itch, but not as much as those late nights at The Conservatory where I spent hours helping my fellow classmates run through the signal flow test on the SSL and API Consoles. I figured, "Heck, I always enjoyed that and was pretty darn good at it. Why not try the teaching thing again, only on a bigger level." At that time Music Production/Mixing Videos on YouTube were not really a big thing. It sure wasn't anywhere near as impacted as the space has become today. I looked at it as the perfect opportunity to pass on the knowledge, I was fortunate enough to obtain, to those whose live's or situations wouldn't allow them to attend a Top Grade Audio School. To those who couldn't afford it, but still had the passion and desire to learn as much as they could about the wonders of recording and mixing music. So, I posted a lesson. It was poorly made and probably not the most helpful of videos, but the seed had been planted. Six years, thousands of subscribers, over a million views and over fifteen million watch hours later, and I'm still at it. I've expanded my outreach beyond the YouTube world and into a website with a more streamlined and focused approach. This site is not for those who are just dabbling in the world of "making beats." No, Pro Audio Lessons is for those who strive to learn everything about everything and are always actively trying to improve their craft. Those who are willing to put in the work.
