A Tutor Can Supercharge Your Learning Experience!

If you value your time get an Expert to help you.

Hello to all Musicians,

Many people try to learn and understand how to use  their DAW, Midi or VST by trial and error, visiting forums, reading the manual or tutorial, and watching YouTube how-to videos. Each of these methods has its benefits. If you want quick results there is nothing like a one to one tutoring from an expert. Some professional tutors offer structured lessons and others work on a question and answer format. Whichever the means you will save yourself many hours of frustration and pick up techniques that you many never have found from other sources.

If you are looking for a computer music tutor
the list below is the most complete online

-----------------  FREE to Use - FREE to List  -----------------

Take Note:

1. The list of professional tutors, teachers and consultants for DAW's, VST's and everything tech and digital primary software but computer and hardware are often included. Here I try to avoid music teachers.
2. Please send feedback so comments about your experiences with the tutors listed below.
3. If you have a tutor to recommend or you are one and want your name added to the list please email the pertinent information. It is free to list.

How to connect with a tutor located outside your city.

The tutors listed here are likely not your neighbors so to connect use TeamViewer and it is as good as if the tutor was sitting next to you. It is that good! The tutor will be able to view your screen(s) and interact with you visually and simultaneously by phone. There are other desktop streaming clients including Skype and iChat that may be as good but TeamViewer has been easy to use and setup.

Some tutors may not be aware of remote tutoring. If you call explain that even though you live out of the tutors area you can use Teamviewer to communicate. You may give them the link to this page.

TeamViewer is free:

The descriptions of the professional tutors provided here is very limited. Often the tutor can help you with Midi, Composing, Recording, Production, Mixing, Mastering, Computer configuration and Troubleshooting. Some also offer structured digital music lessons. I found that that these people are easy to talk to and seem to have an eagerness to help. So give them a chance and spend some time interviewing them so you will get an idea the area of their expertise and how they can help. Some offer a short sample of their tutoring for free.

Payment for service is usually made through PayPal. Some Tutors prefer that you send as gift to avoid commissions. All tutors are based in the USA unless otherwise noted.

A note to Tutors:

It would be great if some tutors also tutored VST and VSTi, MFX, VST MIDI fx, etc. such as Kontakt, Reaktor, Omnisphere, Stylus RMX, Absynth, Stylus RMX, Halion, Melodyne, Alchemy, Consequence, Catanya, Harmomy Improvisator, Noatikl, Usine. The list is endless and so are the musicians that need help.
