Hourly Rate: $50.00 per hour is Shaun’s rate for streaming lessons online or face to face in Cleveland.  Alternatively, the FL Studio Cookbook has everything you need to learn, and is available in hard copy or Kindle E-book.

Please have a list of questions ready to go if you participate in streaming or face to face lessons.  Shaun will request a Paypal payment in order to show you are serious about learning.

Lessons will take place via Google Hangouts webcast anywhere in the world or face to face in Cleveland, Ohio.  You may also buy the FL Studio Cookbook from Packt Publishing.

Lessons are based on your individual skill level.  We can go over the basics or get as deep as we need to.  Besides learning FL Studio as we go along, there may be questions on signal flow, setting up microphones, speakers, and computer settings.  Shaun will walk you through all of this.  So, lessons are based on what you want to learn.
