Private Ableton / DJ Lessons for Electronic Dance Music (EDM) (SoHo)

Private one-on-one Ableton and/or DJ lessons. I have given several students one-on-one lessons before here in NYC.
I can give lessons on technical side of producing music, or if you are stuck on a track I can come in and guide you a bit of the way.

$75 per hour session (2 hour minimum sessions)
$250 for half days (4 hours)
$500 for full days (8 hours)
I've found that typically between 2-5 hours is a good range of time to meet up.
If you are interested, email for more information.
Payments accepted through PayPal on SoundBetter.
