Stepan Chervyakov


I have over 19 years of experience in music production, working in the studio, performing live at different venues and preparing for them, and I am happy to share this experience and my knowledge. I teach both audio and video. The training can take place online or in person if you’re nearby.

I also recently completed additional training on the platform, having received “outstanding results”, confirmed by their certificate. This allowed me to close all the theoretical and practical shortcomings both in the main areas of sound production and in related ones.

I teach both in person and online, both 1 on 1 and in group classes. To find out more – send me a message. The best way to contact me is on VK or Telegram.
