Information overload can leave you feeling confused and frustrated with mixing when it should be fun and exciting and where we can create new music that make people dance, laugh, cry and get goosebumps!
Frustration creeps in after trying to learn to mix by watching random YouTube videos that seem to have contradicting information or take an age to get the point.

I now run an online mixing business Music Mix Pro in the UK working with unsigned bands from all over the world.
