Home recording and mixing are hard.

Really hard.

Like most people, I started out as an independent artist who wanted to record my band. I was excited to build a home studio. To finally get our songs recorded.

To have something to share with my friends and family. Something to be proud of. It didn’t quite work out that way…

As you can imagine, my first recordings sounded HORRIFIC. Take a listen…


There I was.

Deflated. Disappointed. Stuck.

I had no idea where to start.

EVERYONE has to get over this first hump.

It’s not easy. It can take YEARS to move past this point if you don’t approach it strategically. All the negative thoughts and doubts creep in…

“I have no idea where I’m going wrong, so how am I ever going to make something that sounds professional?”

About a year after that first recording, things weren’t getting easier.

Something happened. I pretty much decided to quit.

Like I said…

Most people don’t make it past this common roadblock.

But then I had a realization.

A moment of clarity that took me from bedroom demos to studio-level mixes in a matter of weeks…

…and kick-started my career as a musician and engineer.

More on that in a second.

Fast forward 12 years, and I am extremely lucky to have worked with some incredible people, both as a musician and engineer.

I never expected to reach MILLIONS of musicians through Musician on a Mission…

And I never expected to raise tens of thousands of dollars for charities that I really care about

…but that’s the way it happened.

I’m still young. I have a lot to learn. And I make mistakes every single day.

But after 12 years my mixes have come a long way.

This is a track from my latest solo EP. I set myself a challenge for this one…

It was recorded with one mic (se2200a) in an Airbnb with no acoustic treatment. I used amp simulation and drum software. The whole EP was mixed on headphones.

If you’re just a part-time musician, you probably have a similar setup. Anyone can reach this level of quality…

Even if you have hardly any time for music. Because you have a day job. Or a family to support.

So – what was that moment of clarity?

Eventually, I figured out that you don’t need to know EVERYTHING about recording and mixing to make professional sounding music.

In fact, much less matters than you might think. Most people waste time focusing on entirely the wrong stuff.

Instead, I want to show you what stuff actually matters.

And I want to help you finish your best recording yet.

How? By focusing on the things that actually make a difference. Do this, and you can improve your mixes FAST.
