The classes are taught on a weekly basis, or for a specific project / period of time, and are mainly hosted at SonicShape Studio M / May's Music School in Richmond, BC or online (using Zoom/Meet).​ We welcome students of all ages, levels and backgrounds; the only prerequisite for learning is the availability of the particular instrument. A midi controller/keyboard, audio interface and laptop and specific software is required for some of the Music Production lessons.

Trial lessons and packages are sometimes available so you can try out a specific lesson program. In addition, we host an annual recital free of charge for our performance oriented students.
