As a full time touring/studio drummer, I have spent 10+ years drumming for artists from all over the world. I’ve also spent years mixing live bands on tour, and have learned the ins and outs of what makes a great live show.
Almost all of the bands and musicians you look up to, play along with backing tracks. Whether it’s that extra synth part that you can’t play, or some extra percussion tracks to fill out the sound, most bands are playing along to tracks.
Many of the artists I’ve toured with, play along to backing tracks, and I’ve witnessed firsthand, how important they can be to crafting a great live show.
If you’re ready to take your music to the next level, this is course is for you. In this course I’m going to teach you, step by step, how to:
- operate Ableton Live, the program that will run your tracks
- set up click tracks, and cues to direct the band
- sync logos and videos along to your tracks
- sync a lighting show to your tracks
- loop song sections on the fly
- set up your backing tracks system on stage
I’m always active on the Q/A, and will always answer any questions you have on this course.
Who this course is for:
- Musicians, artists, bands, singers, rappers, band leaders, tour managers
Hi, I'm Mark, and I get to live my dreams out every day. As a drummer for 14 years, and a Record Producer for 9 years, I've had the pleasure of working in the studio, and playing live with some very talented, award winning artists, from Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, China, Taiwan, etc...
Over the years, I've had to learn the "do's and do nots" of recording, producing, and drumming, the hard way... By first, learning the "do nots." My goal in teaching these courses is to allow you to skip learning the "what not to do" and jump right into doing things the right way, right away.

Across the last decade and some change, Manafest has steadily cemented his status as one of the world's most diverse, envelope-pushing and all around uplifting artists. His seamless, lightening-like blur between the spectrums of rap, hip-hop, rock and pop hasn't just led to 300,000-plus album sales and five coveted Juno Award nominations (essentially the Grammy equivalent in his home country of Canada), but also more than 1,000 shows logged over four continents.
