Adam Fangsrud has been an Ableton Certified Trainer since 2011. He is the owner and head engineer at Red Sun Mastering and plays in the electropop duo Flatliner, as well as producing solo techno as Kro. In addition to private instruction, Adam teaches Ableton Live for the Austin, TX based 'Dadageek Academy'.  He is equally capable in the hardware and software realms, specializing in production, mixing, mastering, sound design and generative composition using Max for Live.

Mélanie Frisoli is a composer, sound designer, field recordist, trained audio engineer and educator based in Montreal. She is the first female Ableton Certified Trainer in Canada, with over fifteen years of experience in the music industry. Mélanie has released six albums under the name Mell, and spent years traveling around the globe performing full-time. She has also composed music for documentaries and theater plays, and is an expert using Max For Live.

Misty Jones is a Nashville-based music producer and assistant professor at Middle Tennessee State University and has been an Ableton Live user since 2007. She went on to receive a Master of Music degree in Music Technology Innovation at Berklee Valencia in Spain, where she developed her “Orbit Suit,” using Live and controllers to “remix” a guitar player in real time on stage. In addition to teaching synthesis, MIDI and Ableton Live at MTSU, she devotes time to the scholarly research of pop music evolution and trends, training producers and developing curriculum. In her spare time, she loves remixing, mashups and sample/granular-based composition.
