Teaching you the art of music production



Hey, I'm Alex, and welcome to mixinglessons.com. If you want to learn more about the process of recording, mixing, and mastering music, then you're in the right place!

As someone who initially encountered numerous hurdles when I first started producing music, I understand the challenges many people face. Some of my mixes sounded muddy. Others sounded harsh. Everything sounded over compressed. And despite picking up endless tips and tricks, my mixes never sounded the way I wanted... In the years that followed, I committed myself to learning the art of recording, mixing, and mastering. I studied a bachelor's degree and then a master's degree in music production. I undertook various internships. And through lots of trial and error, I started to hear the results.

Fast-forward to today, and my mission is clear: I aim to share the production skill set with people like you. In the modern era, it's now possible to buy incredible quality equipment to use at home at a really affordable price. All that's missing is the skill set to get the results you want. I aim to bridge that gap, empowering music makers like you to get professional sounding results from the music you produce.

What started as a simple blog in 2017 has grown over time. Today, whether you're a musician who wants to produce your own music, or you aspire to producing music for bands and artists, MixingLessons.com offers a range of resources to help you to get the results you want.
