 “Dan has such a vast amount of knowledge on Ableton Live and is able to produce amazing music in a quick, intuitive, and thoughtful way. There isn’t anything I’ve thrown at him that he hasn’t been able to guide me on, even showing me things that I did not know were possible. He’s energetic and passionate about teaching and unlocks the creative potential in his students.”
