“The job of a successful recording and mix engineer requires the ability to eliminate the technical stuff so that the art can flow freely from artist to listener. Sometimes that effort is even an art itself. In order to fully master this function, it’s important to fill the audio tool box up to its fullest and add a lot of people skills. With these goals in mind, I strive to bring my students up to speed. My teaching style will encourage and enrich any student who is in this game to master it.”

“I’ve been recording and mixing audio for as long as I can remember. From my early teens on my father’s handed-down, reel-to-reel machines, up until doing Eurovision with some 200 million viewers as the music sound director. I was among the very first in Denmark to attend the now well-established Tonmeister degree, a five-year program at The Royal Danish Academy of Music. My experiences from those five years and my over 30 years in pro audio (two of those at Westlake Audio in Los Angeles) are the corner stones of my teachings.”
