Lessons with Tim have helped me greatly improve my foundational music production skills so that I can feel confident doing everything needed to produce a track (which is a lot of things). His incredible breadth and depth of knowledge means that he can answer almost any question, help produce almost any genre or style or sound, and generally help develop all of the most important skills anyone would need as a producer. As some other reviews said, compared to his humorous personality in his videos, he is very straight-to-the-point in the lessons such that every minute feels well-spent. However, he still manages to make the lessons fun in many ways and still produces a few laughs when there's time for it. Highly recommended!

Tim is a fantastic teacher. He truly understands everything from the fundamentals to the niche complexities and can walk you throw every step of the process clearly and smoothly. The most helpful part of my lessons with Tim revolved around his teachings of music theory. While it is a nuanced subject I really felt like Tim was able to instill the the information within me in a way that will stick for years to come. I also learned a ton about arrangement and mixing from Tim and I am now confident in my ability to now apply these learnings in my future work. Most importantly, my lessons with Tim were fun. I couldn't have asked for a better tutor.

I made a Facebook to take lessons with Underbelly, so please excuse the lack of profile picture. I've been producing around one year now. Before working with Tim, I used to spend hours watching YouTube Videos and various Masterclasses every day trying to figure out the best approach to learning production. There was some good information, but I couldn't really connect the dots on how to apply it broadly to the type of music I wanted to make.

However, when I met Underbelly, his curriculum started from the ground up, giving me a foundation in music theory, arrangement, mixing and mastering. It seemed like he really cared about helping me understand the basics first and how to apply them to the music I wanted to make. After a couple months of learning the basics, we then focused on analyzing songs I liked and understanding how to produce in a similar way. I'm much more confident in achieving the style that I want now.

Thanks Underbelly, couldn't recommend you enough.

Even with my years of music production experience, completing Tim's lessons on solid fundamentals of music and production have given me new confidence and ideas in my production. His curriculum based approach is suited to your level, perfectly...

I watched the youtube vids and something about Tim's dry sense of humour told me he is worth giving the free lessons.

Taking 4 lessons from Tim/Underbelly was definitely the right decision! He gave me comprehensive answers to all the questions that interest me and drew my attention to errors that I did not notice when writing music. I’ll definitely take another lesson, thanks for your patience and knowledge given to me.
