Jonathan Milanes on SoundBetter

Hi! My name is Jonathan Milanes, I have studied music and songwriting for the past 4 years and have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about music from it. I also have experience in: being a session musician (Guitar), performing artist (solo/band) as a frontman, artist/band recordings, producing music, and finally, mixing/mastering.

* Audio Recording - Whether you’re a solo artist, a band, or a fifty-piece orchestra – I can track both the instruments and your voice.

* Music Production/Arrangement - Every song needs to have a personality – and I’ll take care of showcasing it in the best way possible to the listener.

* Mixing - I’ll balance all the elements of the music to bring out the best of the song.

* Mastering - Want to make sure that every track sounds polished, professional, and radio-ready?

Studying music and songwriting has also helped me develop a sense of how songwriting and music correlate to each other and how I can take the idea from point A to wherever the artists needs it to go.

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: It begins and ends with the song itself, what is it trying to say? who is it for? why should I listen/connect? where does it take me when I listen to it? and finally, how do I get there and support the vision it's trying to evoke through (recording/production/arrangement/mixing/mastering).
