A/B High School Honor Roll
George G., also known as Masri is an Egyptian American electronic music producer based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Formerly studying Human Biology, George didn't chase his passion for music until halfway through his college career. Attending NC State University, he switched his major to Art Studies and graduated in 2018 with a Music Concentration. George showed considerable interest in electronic music and computers at a very early age. Buying his first MP3 player at 9 years old, he started collecting music from all sorts of genres including Techno, Trance, House, Reggaeton, and Arabic music.
When he turned 20, George started getting musical ideas that he wanted to bring to reality. Having no former background or knowledge in music theory or instruments, he started making music on Fruity Loops using mere ear skills. After confronting his parents about chasing his passion, they were very supportive. George signed up for Ableton Live Music Production courses at the Recording Radio and Film Connection based in LA and also started taking piano lessons thanks to his father's financial support. Growing his skillset over 2 years, George was able to get his first releases on Beatport and Spotify working with labels such as Daxsen's CHECK THIS! and Digital Empire Records. Growing his fan base, George was able to get over 150,000 collective plays on Soundcloud and over 1000 followers. He was also able to play at various venues in Raleigh including Lincoln Theatre's Pulse concert. Slowly but surely, George is driving towards achieving his dream of touring the world as a DJ and Music Producer.
My musical experience began at a very young age when I used to listen to all sorts of music. When I first got to making music, I was around 19 years old, midway through college. I started composing electronic dance music and enrolled in courses to learn more while changing my college major. After graduation I had 2-3 years of electronic music experience, allowing me to get a few jobs and teach at Duke University's DMA camp, SamAsh Music Stores, Raleigh and Bach to Rock Academy, Apex. My passion for my art and profession allowed me to really succeed as a teacher. Even though I am only in my early twenties, I was able to achieve much teaching because I really love what I do. I can relay information to the student in the most through way possible and catch their attention for the material.
Electronic music is very unique, so are the teaching methods for it. As complicated as it may look in the beginning, it can be grasped through practice and time, just like any other instrument. The courses I enrolled in gave me a good idea on how to teach digital audio stations such as Ableton Live and FL Studio. I know exactly where to get the student started out and how to get them to keep improving day after day. Electronic music composing starts out by simple beat making to EQing and mastering finished projects. I treat teaching as a journey where I get the student started out and lead them through the way, eventually letting them do their own thing as they get better and start mastering the subject and developing their own techniques.
The best feeling for me as a teacher is to see students progress and love what they are doing. Every student has to be approached differently and taught in a different manner so they can get the most out of each lesson. My teaching style is all about "slowly but surely". Grasping electronic composing may be a bit hard at the beginning for anyone, however anyone is capable of doing it if they put their mind and effort into it. I set realistic goals for my students and encourage them to achieve and learn as much as possible in each lesson. I can accommodate to what the student wants to learn no matter what genre or concept it is. I strongly believe that my teaching methods will allow to the student to learn and master the art of electronic music composition and digital audio work stations.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
