Hello! My name is Dezz Asante. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself.

I am (and have been for as long as I can remember) a musician first and foremost. I run a small recording studio out of my home in southern Ontario and I teach folks the art and science of modern mixing.

Ever since I was a teenager the only thing that ever came close to providing the joy that I get from playing and producing music has been teaching. So much so that I worked for five years teaching music for almost no money! I love the sense of pride that comes from watching another person succeed as a direct result of the things I’ve shared with them.

That’s kinda where this blog was born out of.

My Story:

In March of 2011 I decided to start my very own podcast as an outlet to teach and to talk about the things I love (since I could no longer afford to teach at the school I work for). Being a tech head (self proclaimed!) and a musician I decided to call it TechMuze.

The first half of the name represents both technology and technique and the second half refers to not only music but also the quasi-philosophical musings that I am occasionally known for.

As the podcast progressed and the TechMuze community began to develop I found that most of the questions I received from listeners focused on the topic of mixing (probably because I talk about it a lot!). So, I decided to try my hand at taking everything I’ve learned about modern mixing (in the past 18 years or so) and create a course that folks could join to get all of their questions answered and to avoid a lot of the time sucking mistakes that I’ve made along the way. I call that MixLessons.com and with it’s creation the TechMuze Academy took shape!

So, where does the Artist Promotion Blueprint come into all of this?

Well… In launching MixLessons.com and the TechMuze Academy, I was forced to learn the ins and outs of internet marketing and the various methods of promotion that are available today. As I dug deeper and deeper I grew fascinated with the sheer potential of the internet!

It is absolutely mind boggling to consider the vast reach that one can have online if you know what you’re doing. It makes me so excited that I can’t stop talking about it to anyone who will listen! (to be honest, you don’t even have to be listening. I’ll talk anyway!)

Being the type of guy I described earlier, I couldn’t help but start this blog and share what I’ve been learning with my fellow musicians so that we can all succeed together.

No, I’m not an internet marketing guru. I make no promises that everything I say is the best way things can possibly be done. I don’t plan on selling anything to you. I just have to share what I’m learning!

So, I hope you enjoy your time here. Please be vocal and leave comments. We’re all learning together and we can all succeed if we share what we’ve got!

See you around the blog,

Dezz Asante
