Student testimonials

I simply loved this course: it was carefully planned, informative, clear and easy to follow. Although I have been using Sibelius for quite some time, there were lots of new things I learnt (e.g. to write music to a video). Mike has been very helpful and encouraging – always quick to respond. It really was a pleasure “meeting” him and being able to engage online. He certainly is a master in his field – a teacher at heart!
~Engela Fullard

I studied with Mike in the summer of 2014. He is a wonderful teacher; very knowledgeable and personable! He is an expert in Sibelius, ProTools, Band-in-a-Box, and much more! I learned a great deal from him as a musician, technician, and entrepreneur. I would definitely love to work more with him in the future."
~Linnea Wilke

Mike's midi workshop was excellent for music educators and covered a WEALTH of information that teachers and students can use. His directions were precise (even though technology, itself has it's glitches). Here is an example of the broad scope covered: The very first assignment was a line of My Country, Tis of Thee, and one of the last assignments was writing music to video. I felt good about how much I learned, even though technology is not my forte. I highly recommend his course.

About the Instructor

Mike Klinger
Carson, United States

Mike Klinger has over 28 years of experience in music technology. More than 5,000 music teachers from all over the world have benefited by studying with him. He was also hired by DoDEA (Department of Defense Educational Activity) to train all of its 268 music teachers in United States, Europe and Asia.He is the owner of The Synthesis Midi Workshop located in Carson, WA that specializes in educational sales in music technology items and is the home of The Mike Klinger Music Technology Retreat Center. He has a M.M in music composition. He lives in Washington, USA.

Mike Klinger is a great online instructor. I have taken courses from him at his facility, and was curious to see how well his instructional style translated to online learning. Bottom line: Mike did a great job. Pro Tools is software with a steep learning curve, that he made easier with his sequential steps, building confidence right along with content knowledge in the learner (me! As a teacher myself, I can really appreciate this). I am getting a lot more use of my recording set-up, and am much more efficient with it, thanks to this class. Thanks Mike! Looking forward to my next class!
