- Keyboard shortcuts are being unused. Consequently your workflow is slow.
- You have been using Cubase effects by ear but you don’t really understand what they do.
- The full potential and capacity of Cubase tools are not being used to their potential.
- You compose music with Cubase by ear and you feel like now is the time to gain a more solid music theory background, in order to better reproduce what you hear in your head.
- You’re finding that watching online tutorials doesn’t answer all your questions and you need some one-to-one specialist assistance.
How lessons work
- Your online Cubase teacher, shares their screen through the video call (eg. Skype or Zoom) to demonstrate how to operate the program, as well as to review files you send over.
- You may share your screen if you need to show any aspect of your workflow.
- Cubase and Skype or Zoom can easily be set up so sound can be heard on both. We usually help you set this up during the free trial lesson, so communication between us is seamless.

Online composing lessons
We teach composition with or without using Cubase, Sibelius and Pro Tools or other score editors.
Contact us for courses in written composition.
Our most common workflow consists of using Sibelius for producing the score and parts, Cubase for the midi mock-up and Pro Tools for preparing the recording session.
However, we understand that you might have a preference for a different score editor (eg. Finale) or a different DAW (eg. Logic, Reaper, Live Ableton, Fl Studio, etc). Your musical possibilities should not be restricted by your software.

Learning the basics of composing
To learn the basics and principals of a certain musical style doesn’t take long. We can help you take it to the next level, even to becoming a master composer if you wish.
For beginners, at first it may seem like learning a foreign language. But you’ll soon begin to understand the language of composing and become fluent with how it’s working. We can help you with this process.
Develop your own ideas
We welcome online composition students who have their own ideas which they’d like to develop. Knowing the principals and mastering many styles, will make you unique as both a composer and as a musician.
