The class focuses on both practical and technical aspects of the world of music, from the angles of business, production, and creativity.
In the class, participants will learn to cultivate and produce creative ideas from start to finish using Abelton Live as well as other production software (this includes both mixing, and mastering).
Participants will also explore different current day strategies they can use to get their music out in the world.
By the end of the class, a finished original arrangement with collaboration from all class participants will be created. The session developed in the class will then be distributed so each participant can remix, and learn on their own time.
David looks forward to making music with you.

- In 2003, he joined Aphrodesia, a ten-piece afro-beat group. Aphrodesia toured the US and made a trip to Nigeria and traveled throughout West Africa playing music. The afro-beat group’s tour ended in a performance at the New Shrine in Lagos, a venue built by the son of afro-beat composer and player Fela Kuti. His son Femi Kuti also sat in with Aphrodesia, and inspired Satori to produce their 2007 album, Lagos by Bus.
- While attending California Institute of the Arts, he formed an experimental instrumental group called The Funnies, who recorded two albums, and toured in an eco-bus that ran entirely on recycled vegetable oil.
He has a Bachelors in composition and performance from California Institute of the Arts.
