Hi all, Have any of you found a production mentor who accelerated your learning curve? I have been seeking this out as I feel that having some direct guidance and observation (outside of Livestreams and Youtube tutorials) would really help my learning process. While I've been able to find mentors for other areas of my life (exercise, business), my quest for a music production mentor always seems to be answered with "just practice". While practice is definitely good (and obvious) advice, I believe theres a lot of value in directly interacting and learning with someone who is where I want to be. For those that have had a mentor, was it not possible until your releases were good enough? For those who haven't, what is your take on this age old concept for improvement (mentor/student relationship)? So far, I'm not getting any responses to my messages via Facebook/Soundcloud to my favorite producers or labels. I'll be in London (technically, Reading) until February, so hopefully I can make some connections in the meantime.
