2Availability
Planning of sessions is taken care of by email at producercoaching@stmpdstudios.com.
3Is there a fixed schedule (e.g. once per week) or is it flexible?
The schedule is fully flexible and designed to meet your needs, we have coachees attending from abroad doing an intensive program of multiple times per week but we also welcome coachees that do sessions in once every month.
4Can I book multipe sessions at once?
For clients traveling to Amsterdam from far away we can make individual arrangements to book more sessions at once.
5STMPD studios
Producer Coaching by Mark Otten operates independently from the STMPD studios yet offers music production training and coaching in the STMPD studios. We provide an opportunity to bring your music to a new level by developing the areas of your music skill set that you want to improve. Sessions will be held in the producer rooms of the inspiring STMPD studios, equipped with the finest quality audio hardware and outstanding acoustics.
6How do remote sessions work?
The remote Producer Coaching sessions work through Zoom in combination with Audiomovers. Zoom makes it easy to not only do standard video conferencing but also share your screen or hand over control if needed. Audiomovers ListenTo is a service that enables streaming of stable and uncompromised audio (in case internet bandwidth is limited, Audiomovers can be used at lower but still great audio quality too). When you're selected for the program, we send you instructions. You don't need a paid Zoom or Audiomovers account.
7What is the difference between a studio and a remote session?
Although both types of coaching have its place, there are differences. We feel there is a clear added value to being in the same room, because you're both listening to the same acoustics and system. Secondly, it could potentially contribute to a more efficient and deeper learning experience.

Remote sessions however have proven to be a great alternative. Making use of the perfect audio quality that Audiomovers provides most, if not all, of what you can learn in a studio session you can learn in a remote session as well. At a lower price, and without the need to travel to Amsterdam, this might be the right choice for you.

It is always possible to combine the two, for instance start out with a remote introductory session and then come to Amsterdam for a studio session cycle, or follow up a studio cycle with a remote cycle.
