Learn Music Production

Laser Focused Online Private Lessons

Today’s music production software brings virtual processors worth thousands of dollars of studio equipment to your fingertips. It’s like having a million-dollar music studio in your bedroom.  But, it can get complicated…

Numerous windows, neverending menus, knob, buttons, faders, and sliders. It is not always easy to figure it out by trial and error. You can always surf YouTube videos trying to find a specific piece of information. Good luck with that. User manuals can sometimes be frustrating. Or, you might as well use a little help.

I like teaching private lessons. Besides my work in higher education as a professor and administrator, I have been a private instructor for more than 20 years. I use advanced tools and techniques for online lessons. We can see and hear each other as well as sharing screens and streaming the direct output of our music production software without significant quality loss. I am an Avid Certified Pro Tools Instructor and Steinberg Certified Cubase Trainer. I offer intensive training programs as well as one-off mentoring sessions or anything in between on the following topics.

About

Bora Uslusoy
Producer, Educator

I was was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, and I have been living in Boston since 2017. For many years, I have produce bands and worked as a recording and mixing engineer. My independent digital music label and project studio is bUMA RecordZ, and I have two solo albums and two singles released under my own name. In addition, I composed music for films. I currently work as an assistant professor at Berklee College of Music in the Music Production and Engineering Department.
I studied guitar at the Musicians’ Institute London: Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) and completed Berklee Online’s Studio Production Specialist Certificate program. I attended Avid’s Train the Trainer program, becoming an Avid certified Pro Tools instructor in 2011. The same year, I was also certified as a Steinberg trainer for Cubase; I was one of the first people in Europe to accomplish this. I am the author of five instructional books on guitar and bass in Turkish and countless magazine articles, product reviews, and how-to guides. In addition, I have written about 20 online courses in both Turkish and English, including a course on social media analytics for Quinnipiac University and a course about teaching your on-campus course online for Tuskegee University’s Office of Distance Education and Online Learning (ODEOL), among others.
