Hey, I'm Tim :)

Over the past 6 years I’ve completely transformed my mixes from being totally amateur to a high professional level, and working with these big labels and artists.

But, if I’m honest, looking back, all those hours I put in learning and experimenting, only 20% was valuable and the other 80% was a complete waste of time. I went along for years experimenting and learning the wrong things.

That is why I recorded these videos, to teach you the right things, the things you really need to know to get ahead with your music.

"Tim provides one of the most informative sessions I’ve been a part of, and the amount of practical examples he injected into it was immensely helpful!"
