Hi! I’m Brandon from New Westminster, BC, Canada. I have a bachelors degree in Profession Recording Arts from The Art Institute Of Vancouver, with a passion for helping people learn from from my various skillsets and experience, which include 17 years in the music industry both studying and teaching Music Theory, Audio Engineering (including mostly the use of software such as Pro Tools or FL Studio and talking gear, such as how to complete your home studio setup as well as recording mixing and mastering tips), Video Editing in After Effects and Premier Pro (mostly for visualizer videos and content creation) and basically anything to do with music creation and promotion. I have been through a lot in life and love to help people learn and honestly just feel better & hopefully excited about their goals and passions. Don’t ever give up on something that makes you happy and always stay creative.
While my primary focus of music is hip hop I do have professional experience and respect for all genres of music.

###Lost my best friend, my dad, my world’s been shattered countless times and music has helped me through all of it. I believe that the ability to create is a value noone but a creator knows of. We all do this for a reason and if yours is anything other than because it’s something that makes you happy or gives you a sense of self than its probably not for you, but if you have drive passion or even an interest in knowing what I do then all are welcome and you will get there with practice.
