So here's a question: How many of you would love to play the guitar, or sing, or write music, or produce music, or get more followers on your social networks, or any of the things you regularly see me doing?

You're in luck! I've finally decided to start giving private lessons!

What am I talking about? Well imagine you want to learn to play the guitar, so you go to a music shop for lessons, or to a teacher's house, or a teacher comes to your house or something. It's like that, only it doesn't matter how far away we are from each other, because we can use the internet to video chat our sessions.

I know what you're thinking: "That sounds awesome but its probably expensive as hell".... but actually, I want to make this as affordable as possible. So really, if you want to learn, no matter your budget, just shoot me an email and we can talk about it. I'm flexible on schedule and the frequency of our sessions.

So yeah ... send me an email to find out more. It's Mike {at} MikePeralta.com and you can find more information over at my Contact page.

Also note that for certain things (such as setting up a website, digitally distributing your music, etc), you might prefer I simply do those things for you, instead of teach you how. It's up to you. We can even do this thing where I remotely control your computer to show you how to do hard stufffs that you're having trouble learning on your own.

Here are some of the things I'm available for:

  • Learn to sing, or sing and play guitar at the same time

  • Learn about various music/performance hardware, mixers, and how to wire them all up
  • Learn how to arrange complex audio setups to maximize your sound

Linux Administration

I save a ton of money each year by building and managing my own servers
  • Learn where to find cheap "do it yourself" web servers
  • Learn how to install linux from scratch, and setup a full fledged server
  • Learn about security, backups, and other fun things

I'm sure I've left a few things out, but suffice it to say that I'm a "Do it yourself" type guy, so anything you've seen me do on behalf of my own career/fun, I can teach you to do too.
