DJ & Producer

Camiel Daamen has to be about the most inspirational music teacher I’ve come across in my days. I wish i had someone like him when I was young but glad to have such a fast and inspirational Ableton pro close to me.

I highly recommend following his courses as it teaches you not only the tricks and tips of ableton live, producing, mixdowns.

But most importantly gives you instant motivation to hit the studio, try new things and love the music you are making because its your own. Its about the journey and Camiel Daamen‘s methods of teaching bring you half way there..

DJ & Producer

When I started to follow my passion with music, everything was so overwhelming and I felt a little bit lost. Working with Camiel brings so much clarity and fun.

He is a real Ableton genius and he always has an answer for your questions. If you wanna become a better producer or DJ you should work with Camiel.
