For 23 years Jeff taught music production and audio engineering at UCLA Extension. He was awarded the Dean's Distingished Instructor Award.
As a music producer at Moonlight Studios, Jeff gently guides vocalists to their very best performance while he expertly performs all audio engineering tasks. He artfully records all acoustic instruments, including live drums, guitars, horns, violins, cellos, percussion instruments... basically anything.
Then Jeff can edit, fix, tune, time-correct any little flaws in the performance so that the record will stand the test of time. He expertly does the final mix. Reaching into a whole other bag of tricks, Jeff also specializes in final mastering for commercial release.
Jeff's time has always been a balance between recording studio activities and a robust live performance schedule. To be honest, suddenly all live performances have been cancelled due to this virus. Jeff now has the time available to offer lessons online from his studio.
