- Beginner/Intermediate music producers
My name's Mike, I'm a 27-year-old musician and music instructor from the U.K. I've been playing, writing and producing music for the last 12 years. I co-run an organisation/charity called T.I.M.E - Together In Musical Expression where I run music workshops and classes for people of all ages and abilities.
I believe EVERYONE has it in them to create beautiful music. It's just a case of letting go of expectations and having fun with the process of creating.
