About Ableton Certified Trainer Brian Funk aka. AfroDJMac

instudioBrian Funk, aka AfroDJMac, is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and Ableton Certified Trainer from New York.  He began his musical career with the guitar, playing in numerous rock bands, recording albums and embarking on tours of the East Coast of the United States.  In an effort to expand his studio’s capabilities and songwriting arsenal, Brian turned toward computer-based music in 2006.

As a guitarist and songwriter, he found Ableton Live to be the ultimate tool to unlock his creativity and bring his studio creations to the stage. A curious sound designer, Brian regularly releases free Ableton Live devices that challenge conventional sound-design-thinking, via his website and YouTube channel.  His series of Two Minute Ableton Live Tips earned him the title of true “a legend in the Ableton Community” (Ableton Blog 6/26/12).

As a writer and high school English educator, teaching Live and music production is the perfect marriage of two life passions.  Brian specializes in teaching Live for songwriters and rock musicians, home and professional studio application, and live performances.  His experience as a rock musician offers students a unique insight into bridging music of the past with the music of the future.

Brian has written, authored, and produced various courses on Music Production and Ableton Live. He teaches Advanced Music Production with Ableton Live at Berklee Online. Along with his own blog, Brian writes for various music publications on the web.

What skill level is this course?

All skill levels are welcome. You do not need any previous experience with Push to take this course.  Come one, call all! At the same time, if you’ve been poking around with your Push for some time, this course will help fill in all the gaps in your understanding of how to use it.

What if I don’t have a Push 2?

This course was designed for you to follow the videos lessons using your Push 2. If you don’t have a Push, you can still take the course. But it will kinda be like showing up to batting practice without your bat.

What if I have the original Push?

While this is a course specifically focused on Push 2, most of the curriculum and techniques are still applicable to first version of Push.

What version of Live 9 and Push does this course cover?

This course covers topics and features up to Live 9.6.

What if I don’t like the course?

We want you to be as excited about your course as we are. If for any reason you’re not 100% happy with it, we offer a no-hassle, no-BS, super easy 60 day satisfaction guarantee. Any time within the first 60 days after purchase we will refund your money.

How long can I access this course videos?

You have lifetime access to the course videos.

Can I download the videos?

No we don’t offer downloading of the videos. The videos are available as on-demand streaming HD players that you can access from a computer or virtually any mobile device.

Is this course applicable to my genre?

In a word – yes. This course is designed to demonstrate how to use the Push, and that is applicable to any and all genres of music making.

Are there any system or hardware requirements?

Yes. To get the most out of this course, we recommend following along with the videos while using your Push 2 (or Push 1), and a computer with access to high speed internet. Minimum requirements are obviously the ability to run Ableton Live, so any computer with Mac OS 10.5 & Windows XP or newer should do just fine. Even if you have a Push 1 most concepts are still applicable.
