Two weeks ago I left my role as Director of Products at MultiTracks.com and stepped out into a new journey to start a new season. I had been at MultiTracks for almost 4 years and had an amazing time. It’s an incredible company, full of incredible people, doing great work.
I’m proud of what I did at MultiTracks while I was there. We launched 3 brand new products, and launched tons of updates to Playback. I’m thankful for the opportunity I had to dream up solutions to problems Worship Leaders had and work with an incredible team to make them happen.
I’m thankful for the chance to travel the country (both literally and technologically via. webinars) to meet lots of you. I enjoyed meeting and taking pictures with people who said they’ve spent countless hours watching my training, and how I had transformed their worship services and how they use Ableton Live.
Most of all-I’m thankful I was able to build a team of Product guys (I called them the ProBros?) that will continue to carry the torch in my absence. Every week we discussed what a Product Owner looks like, and how to best serve your customers. How to manage bug fixes vs. new features. And how to go from idea to execution. I will miss those meetings the most.
As this year started though, I could sense I was ready for a change. I realized I’m more maker than manager and that while I enjoyed the challenge of learning how to be a Product Owner, my real passion was teaching and training others to learn Ableton Live.
So about two weeks ago I let the leadership team at MultiTracks know that I was ready to jump out on my own and launch something-all focused on helping people learn to use Ableton Live on stage. So today, I’m excited to finally announce my new company From Studio to Stage.
The goal, really is simple-To help bands and artists get from studio to stage, with Ableton Live. There’s tons of YouTube videos out there, tons of courses, schools, and training centers, teaching Ableton Live. But I wanted to start something focused on using Ableton Live-live on stage. I’m going to be doing that in primarily three ways:
Subscription Training Site
I’m launching a brand new subscription training site. Subscribers get access to every course in the catalog, access to a private facebook group (only for subscribers), and a monthly community call. I’m launching with both individual and team plans. Team plans include unlimited users-so for one price, your entire time can learn how to use Ableton Live on stage, at the same time. You can start a 7 day free trial to see what it’s all about.
I’m really excited about the “All Access” model. I’ve done courses before, but I never liked that I couldn’t present the whole picture to people in training. With this model I can create small courses that are hyper focused and reference other courses. With an All Access model, that means you get access to everything. The course will “never close” and I’m not limiting membership. As I was creating content this past few weeks, I got incredibly excited at this medium and how it will be used to train people to use Ableton Live.
I’ll be hosting live events across the country this fall on how to use Ableton Live on stage. From running tracks, to controlling lights and video, and everything in between. I’ll be announcing those dates soon over on From Studio to Stage.
I’ve been fortunate that I’ve already been able to work with some amazing clients these past few weeks. From a local Austin entrepreneur launching a traveling live show, to an artist in Vegas doing a “one man band” show, to a Worship Leader in South Carolina. And I’ve got some work lined up for the next few months with churches, artists, and even the Air Force. I’m excited to have the opportunity to do more of this type of work, and with a broad range of clients. If you’re interested in working with me (in any form or fashion) get it touch!
What you Can Do
There’s so much more coming over the next few weeks, including brand new tutorials posted on all of the From Studio to Stage social channels. You can find us on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
And finally if you, or someone you know is interested in working with me get it touch I’d love to chat.
