The School Of Knard Hocks
I am a one-on-one tutor for digital music composition & production from my own home. I also provide lessons in video format, as well over video call and live stream.
My specialties include sound design, mixing, mastering, as well as music theory between multiple genres from classical to electronic.
It's fun, noisy, and a rabbit hole of creativity.
