Learn how to mix music at home using a simple workflow and basic core skills to help improve your mixing process and mindset, no matter what level you are at or the DAW you use.
Simply Mixing is a learning resource to help you mix better music that sounds like a record, simple!
◉ Sometimes, I feel I need to go back to the basics because my knowledge exceeds my practical ability
◉ I literally can’t hear things I add into my mix clearly anymore, even when I've got a terrible low end or nasty high end, I just can’t tell!
◉ I waste so much time trying to fix problems rather than finish mixes so I can regularly release fresh new music
◉ I want to feel good about my music when other people hear it
◉ I want my mixes to compete with the major label artists on the same playlist
Simply Mixing covers more of the decision making process behind mixing music, whereas so many music mixing courses and tutorials only cover mixing in a "show and tell" style.
I believe it's so important to have the core principles of audio engineering nailed so you have a solid grounding from which to build true expertise and your pro-mixing tool box.
By understanding your WHY when mixing, you’ll make faster decisions that have greater impact on the final mix, bridging the divide between demo mixes and pro mixes, developing your decision making skills to not only mix faster but feel more creative and confident than ever before.

I'm a BBC trained mixing engineer based in the UK and started recording and mixing music in the mid-’90s from a small home studio, just like you!
In 2000, I decided to find out how to turn my hobby into a full-time career and after studying at the SAE Institute in London I went on to work for the BBC.
There I engineered many of the UK’s most listened to radio shows and live music sessions from the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios. I've worked with a wide variety of artists and have been credited on records by multi platinum artists.
With Simply Mixing, I’m going to help you build confidence and self-belief as a mixer, helping you mix faster, make better decisions and amplify your listening skills.
With the right mindset skills in place, you’re going to increase your mix output, build a solid reputation and have the confidence to start that studio business you’ve always dreamed of!
