The Quickie

$20

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.

Kyle Griffith

Composer / Saxophonist / Pianist

Music Review and Feedback

$50

I am a Seattle-based music composer for video games, a piano teacher, and a saxophone performer for numerous bands and local DJs. I have a critical ear and a strong motivation to see other musicians succeed in expressing the best versions of their work. I'm detail-oriented, which sometimes leads to the issue of perfectionism. However, in the realm of constructive criticism, I believe my conscientious ear is quite useful. 


I obtained my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition-Theory from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as well as my Master of Music degree in Music Composition for Film from the Seattle Film Institute. Alongside my many years as a freelance composer, performer, and teacher, my schooling gives credence to my ability to explain melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, and formal concepts with the proper terminology. I can communicate these ideas to help refine any musical product, both compositionally as well as in the production stage.

Music promotion and marketing advice

$15

Torrio, whose real name is Alan Dufner JR., was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. During high school Torrio's love for music and expression would be evident through his writing of over 50 songs. In the early 90's, Torrio got together with Cleveland artist K-Chill, and helped produced a few songs on one of his albums. This was the first time he was able to record in a real studio. He learned a ton about recording, and met many new people in the local music community through working with K-Chill. The two started a production company together, which was located on E. 101st and St. Clair in Cleveland. They eventually parted ways.



Towards the end of the 90's, Torrio recorded a single independently, which he was able to get into a national chain called Camelot Music. Finally he caught a break, and worked for a national record label called Rival Records, where he helped promote records by Men At Large, and Hip-Hop group S.O.S.C. He eventually signed an artist development deal with Rival Records, and recorded several songs with the label. It was a wonderful learning experience, and he was blessed to be in the studio with many greats such as Dave Tolliver, Buddy Banks, and producers Simon Illa, and James Macon.


In early 2001, he parted ways with Rival Records.



Since then, he has released three nationally distributed albums that have gotten not only recognition, but radio play, award nominations and more. Each album he released was better creatively than the last. His albums featured many talented Cleveland artists, as well as nationally known artists such as Dave Tolliver, Big Mucci from 71 North, and Byron Nemeth.



Torrio went to college for a degree in Social Sciences through the Recording Arts and Technology program which teaches studio engineering and music business.
