Mix Review and feedback
I've been a producer, composer, mixer, and master engineer for over ten years. Don't limit your sound from the start. Everyone wants their song to sound bigger and better than the previous one, but did you know composition and arrangement play a significant role in the over-all sound a mixing and mastering engineer can achieve? With my experience at your disposal, we can find the way to the sound that you have in mind. I've worked with many artists over the years and have helped them get to the mixing stage with a greater production. Better production = better mix and master. I will listen to your mix for clear and concise feedback for you to make it the best it can be.
Ask me any questions about Ableton Live, ProTools or Logic Pro X.
Composer / Producer / Bass Player / Educator
I am really excited about having the chance to help you develop your musical ideas, your mixes, your musicianship, your career and anything else I can help with.
I have written, produced, and mixed over a thousand pieces of music and I have had something I created or helped shape, played somewhere in the world, every week for over 20 years, whether it be on radio, television, cinema, online or anywhere else you can think of. I have managed to do a few gigs along the way as well.
Music is about expressing yourself and creating magic. It is how I connect to other people and the world around me.
I am guessing that if you are on this site, it is probably the same for you. Not only that, but you are doing one of the smartest and most important things you could ever do. You are searching for the knowledge to better yourself and your music.
Let me help you discover new ways of approaching your music. Some things might be technical, if we are discussing your mixes. Some things might be physical, if we are talking about how you are with your instrument. I don't have all the answers, no one does, but I can promise you one thing. I will do my best to share with you as much as I can to help you on your way.

Premium feedback with audio/video demo/explanation
Hi! I am a professional musician, composer and tutor with 20 years actual teaching/mentoring behind me. Teaching and artist development is a deep passion for me, not just a "sideline" job, to "top-up" my other work ;-)
My name is Kevin Edge.
Classically trained on piano from the age of 7, and later complementing this groundwork with studying and playing jazz and other contemporary forms (pop/rock/funk/fusion/electronic/singer-songwriter etc), I have centred my life on the study, creation and performance of music in many different forms: piano, electric/acoustic guitar and clarinet, playing in bands, performing solo, songwriting, composition and production for TV and film/trailer music (including hybrid cinematic/orchestral), electronic music of all kinds, mixing and mastering, along with teaching, offering guidance and mentoring across all of these areas both privately and in college settings, including lecturing at the JMC Academy (counterpart to SAE) in Melbourne, Australia.
I work with clients to develop their mixing, mastering, singing. playing, composition, songwriting, production and applied music theory knowledge/skills, in order to progress their musicianship and empower them on their musical journey, be it as a career, or simply for their own personal creativity/expression etc.
I can guide and feedback across all these areas/layers, and draw links/connections between them, which can provide a powerful springboard for musical development, all in one place. Alternatively the feedback can be very focussed on one particular aspect, as the client wishes.

Guitarist / Producer / Lyricist / Songwriter
Hi there! My name is Lucas - welcome to my PIVODIO profile!
Music is my lifeblood. Crafting and digesting songs is my greatest passion, inspiration, purpose, and pursuit. I believe that music has the power to transcend boundaries between the human mind and the abstract world around us in ways that no other medium can replicate. Music is feeling, music is storytelling, the most digestible pill with some of the most profound impacts.
I am a lifelong musician with projects ranging across many genres from Jazz to Pop. I have toured the country, competed in jazz festivals, and studied electronic/studio music at UC Santa Cruz.
Nothing brings me more joy than helping others realize their potential to create art that is unique to them and only them.
Whether you're interested in songwriting, refining production, sprucing up your lyricism, or even just looking for an outside perspective on a nearly finished product - I would be honored to be a part of your journey and offer you all that I can.

Vocal Performance Review
I am a music producer and recording engineer with over 25 years of experience. I am very experienced in full album productions for bands and solo artists. I have played guitar since I was 11 and can play bass and sing harmonies. I like to really dive into a song and work on every aspect of the arrangement, melodies, harmonies, lyrics, and rhythm. I can offer very good feedback for your original compositions. And I can make suggestions on recording styles, techniques, and production concepts that will help your songs really jump out of the speakers.
