Whether you’re just getting started in live sound or producing music out of your home studio, amateur sounding mixes and demos are no longer acceptable. Your music must sound professional if you want to compete in today's market.
My process will get you from point A to point Z as quickly and painlessly as possible.WANT TO KNOW MORE?
As a professional sound engineer with decades of experience, I’ve been helping aspiring sound engineers, musicians, and producers just like you to improve their skills.
There is so much to learn, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and off track. How do you know what you need to know when you don’t know what you don’t know?
You have a lot of options when it comes to finding answers to your audio and mixing questions:
- ‘Influencers’ and Self Proclaimed ‘Experts’ who are great at making cutesy videos but have little or no real-world experience.
- Google and Youtube can easily lead you down a rabbit hole of wrong information.
- Trial and error just wastes your time and money.
You could learn directly from someone with a successful career doing exactly what they are teaching you.
I’ll help you cut through all the noise so you can get the professional results you need in the shortest amount of time.
With my programs, you are learning directly from me. So you’ll benefit from the knowledge and experience I've gained from more than 30 years in the music industry and my education in audio and music production from two different schools. You’ll learn the most essential principles and techniques that would take years to figure out on your own.

A few of the artists I've worked for...
Mixing Music Live Student
I must say that this has been the best course that I have done. The order in which the subjects have been presented and the demonstrations have been brilliant. Everything has been very well explained and helped to re-enforce the knowledge for me. Thank you for putting the effort into to sharing your professional experience for non professionals such as myself. It is much appreciated and put to good use.
Mixing Music Live Student
The Mixing Music Live course helped me further my work of making live sound for the 2 amateur bands where I play bass. I now have a better understanding of how to mix and make a good live sound and how to avoid feedback both in the rehearsal room and in a live situation.
Bill Talley -Live Sound Engineer/Musician
If you want to learn how to mix sound you can not go wrong with this course. Michelle's teaching style allows you to hear and see what is happening instead of trying to visualize what a book is trying to convey. I have dozens of books, but none cover it in such an easy to understand way as this course does. Money well spent. Thank you Michelle!
Scott Carr- Recording Engineer/ Musician
Michelle is on her "A Game" when it comes to EQ! Even though I have been a musician for 45+ years, I had never really had anyone explain EQ to me in such a detailed, informative, and educational manner; not even in the ballpark as to how she has done it. I totally recommend her course to anyone who is serious about mixing and who is willing to put in the work!
Andre Jarreau - Musician
LISTEN! is awesome. I’m a lifelong musician and have never heard music like I hear it now. Now I can mix much better, but more importantly I can talk to producers about the sound I am looking for. This is increasing my network connections so important to my music career.
