Professional Music Producer and Audio Engineer

My names Adam Caterer and from the time I could walk I have been passionate about music. 

 For the last 4 years I have been producing music. When I was thirteen I started listening to electronic music and I instantly fell in love with the genre. I fell in love with the people, the attitude and the spirit of festival life. I vowed that I would be on that stage one day playing my own music for the world to hear. I then got into DJing and started playing at raves and parties. 

I slowed down a bit last year and got into ghost producing.

I started creating music production courses because I found it so hard to start this career path when I was first getting started. People in this industry keep secrets and I think that's wrong. 

So before I jumping back into the spot light in a couple years with my own brand and record label I am going to help as many people as I can achieve something they never thought they could...

Good luck in your future en-devours; I hope to see you in one of my courses!
