WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING.
“Drew’s work transformed my music from sounding flat and sparse to full, clear and breathing. He made the track come alive!
I’ve learned a tremendous amount from Drew. He is patient as well as clear and articulate, and his devotion to learning and his 20 years of study in the field of production and mix engineering have definitely paid off.
Drew is also very good at honouring the sound that YOU are trying to achieve, as opposed to applying his sound to your music. I will happily continue to learn from Drew because he has a tremendous amount of knowledge to impart."

“Facing the next step in my career, I searched for someone who's familiar with the electronic music business. If you’re an indie or alternative rock artist, the number of coaches for that topic is virtually unlimited, but when it comes to electronic music, there are few to none. Vespers fills this void.
We worked on a strategy on how to approach labels and crafted a fully branded artist package. Vespers is never short of creative ideas on how to stand out from the crowd. He offers tons of inspiration for thinking outside the box and more importantly got me into the right mindset to face the next big challenge. He was very supportive and forthcoming. Vespers is your go-to coach.”
