“After being inspired and amazed by Kiva’s YouTube video ‘Guided Dub’, I reached out to him for private lessons. The guidance and technical expertise that Kiva provided me with was top notch and enabled me to use Ableton and an APC40 in ways I didn’t know were possible. Since then we have continued to work together and I have been able to both experience and observe Kiva’s teaching excellence and wide knowledge base about digital music production. I am eternally grateful for the possibilities that Kiva’s teachings set in motion.”
