Our Approach to Teaching Digital Music Production

Explore the world of digital music production and editing using GarageBand or ProTools on a private lesson basis.* Bob Thompson is very passionate about digital music production and has experience in recording, editing and mixing music as well as other aspects of audio post production.

During lessons, students will learn how to create, record, edit and mix their own original music using either GarageBand or Pro Tools. GarageBand is fantastic software for students beginning their journey into music production and is available on iOS or MacOS.

Students that are interested in going even deeper into digital music production can learn advanced techniques using Pro Tools, which is known as the industry standard software for digital audio workstations. Whether you are a beginner or already have experience in digital music production, Bob Thompson can help take your skills to the next level.

*Note: These lessons are on a Zoom basis and designed to occur from the comfort of the student’s own home, with one notable exception: Students intending to use GarageBand on iOS (on their phone or tablet) will have their lessons in person at The Music Room.
