I am geared to understanding and being apart of the process to create pieces of music or art that individually represents the artist. I will be in it fully to best compliment the vision and creation and am exited to know the details behind the ideas of the music.
My name is Dawson and I have been apart of music for most of my life. I play several instruments that have defined and polished my music theory knowledge but I am also very dedicated to producing music that symbolizes life and emotional clarity. From early childhood my upbringing was the quality of classic rock which allowed me to expand on the details of music. I would always listen to songs on repeat to try and hear every part that was played. The first instrument I picked up was the drums when I was 11 being self taught and having a few lessons It became such a foundation for me even to understand all other instruments. From there I went on to continue with trombone throughout middle school and high school and still to this point which gave me even more melodic understanding. This eventually excited my desire to play multiple instruments such as, baritone, trumpet, bass, guitar, and piano. Once I understood what I could actually use these skills I built up, I dove into music production and I am currently trying to live out the dream of being apart of music for the rest of my life. I am pursuing a bachelors in music production and have experience practicing my craft in a five figure studio. With all of that being said, I also offer the understanding of what it is like to create personal, original music from scratch, so my empathy is toward the creator. Let's work together :)
