I understand musical theory to a point of near complete understanding although the upper echelons escape me such as composing symphonies and the finer details of jazz soloing. I can explain the guitar neck, mechanics, chord structure, and pentatonic patterns in an understandable way for advanced or beginner guitarists.

Video Production

As a 3d animation major I've been trained in Adobe after effects and Flash. Video production is a huge part of composting 3d renders as well as creating demo reels and music videos. I was taught proper video editing techniques such as how to shoot scene for live action movies, pacing, rendering settings, editing, adding effects, and some motion tracking.

Music Production

I've been recording music for about 5 years now. I have a deep understanding of how compression, eq, panning, and mixing using subtraction work and have recorded my band as well as multiple others. I feel i can teach the basics and intermediate levels of recording and mixing music.
