I'm Fabian Russ. I'm a composer and sound designer mostly working with symphony orchestras and electronic music. I am also an Ableton Artist and I give Ableton lessons through Skype. You might be a beginner or maybe even an intermediate producer, there is always something to learn about Ableton and how to get the best results out of it. I am working together with PML on the score templates and if you like those works, you’ll enjoy spending time together on Skype.
To book a lesson or to find out more get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re a beginner:
I'll be happy to show you the basics of Ableton. With my help after a few lessons, you'll be able to create simple tracks yourself, no matter what musical style.
If you're an intermediate producer:
I'll gladly share with you my music production knowledge including mixing, sound design and composition.
How much are the lessons?
The lessons are always 40€ per hour. You pay me before the lesson with PayPal.
What does a lesson with you look like?
I will share my screen & sound with you. You'll be able to see what I'm doing in Ableton and hear its audio. If you're a beginner you share your screen with me and follow my instructions.
Can you work on my Ableton project?
Absolutely! Just remember that I might not have all plugins you used in it - in that case, I can download some of them or you can make an "Ableton only" version of your project.
How do I send you my Ableton project?
First, you need to open it up and go to File>Collect All and Save so that I get all your samples with it. Then it's best to put your project folder (not just the .als file) inside an archive, like a .zip file, and send it through email. On a Mac is as easy as right-clicking on it and selecting Compress.
What do I need to have for the lesson?
All you need to have is a computer, headphones and a mic. You obviously need to have Skype and Ableton set up before the lesson.
Still wondering if these lessons are for you? Tell me what you'd like to learn and I'll let you know if I can help you.
