I am an accomplished rock/pop guitarist, on both electric and acoustic guitar, and occasionally work as a session guitarist. I also offer guitar lessons in Birmingham City Centre - if you are interested, please get in touch. Samples of my playing are available from my SoundCloud.

rates

The amount of time needed to mix a track can vary a lot depending on the quality of the recording, the quality of the performance, the number of instruments involved and the quality of mix expected. E-mail me with details about the tracks, and a demo if you have one, and I will send you a no-obligation quote for the mix. A cheap mix for a simple track would start at £20, and an elaborate mix for a big track could end up in the region of £250.

For live sound engineering I charge a flat rate of £10 an hour, which does not include the hire of PA equipment.

For a full recording package, take a look at Robannas Studios' website.
If you would like me to produce a session at another studio, just e-mail me.
