Fundamentals

The simplest, most important elements, ideas or principles

What did you do when you wanted to drive a car? You learned the fundamentals from an experienced professional, studied a manual, practiced driving and then you took a test.

What would you do if you wanted to invest in stocks or crypto? You would find an experienced advisor and learn the basics before investing any money.

What would you do if you wanted to build your own house? You would study what the professionals have done before you, choose your materials carefully, and then start with the foundation.

So why should it be different when it comes to mixing your own songs, beats, vocals and music? You need to know the FUNDAMENTALS.

"I have learned so much from this great person! From synthesis to producing for yourself and other artists, you will learn how important everything is and where everything needs to be placed in order to make outstanding tracks."

Raven J.

"It has been a privilege to be taught by Futch. He brings his authentic self to the table every time, with real feedback and all the encouragement you could wish for to help push you in the right direction. There are so many things I've learned from Futch that I think about every day, one being to always invest in things that go under you and I can't think of a better way than to invest in being taught by him. He is an artist at his very core and a truly inspiring teacher, instructor and mentor."

Ross F.

"Futch has a unique teaching style which personally I learned a lot from. Whether you are beginner or advanced, engineer or a producer, you will hone your skills in a fun and engaging way. He’s also one of the funniest guys I have ever met."

Kentya K.

"First off, Futch will make you feel COMFORTABLE. So don't worry about being nervous, that leaves the door after one day. He taught me how to make artists (including myself) feel good behind the mic and how to talk with them during a vocal session. Which is important because not everyone is spot on and you just have to be patient with them!"

Scott O.

"Before having Futch as my professor, I spent 6 months in a highly technical audio engineering course. It was intense and slightly overwhelming. In contrast to this, Futch's lessons focused more on the holistic aspect of music production: from dealing with creative people, learning how to coax the best performance out of an artist, to analyzing songs and picking out their strengths and weaknesses. These lessons were invaluable, and really helped to put my whole education into perspective. I couldn't ask for a better mentor or friend."

Jack M.

 “Without a doubt, One of the best teachers I’ve ever had! I always left his class feeling inspired. He taught me how to change perspectives as well as how to adapt in a fast-paced studio environment. I have a lot of respect for Futch.”
