Learning how to use a new piece of software can be really challenging. Naturally, it’s always a little difficult to pick up something new. Almost as challenging is finding someone that you connect with and understand, who can show you those ropes.

With Digital Media Academy’s new HOW-TO video series, you can learn from industry professionals, at your own pace – for FREE. These are guys that speak your language and can help you get the most out of a new piece of software, hardware or other technology.

Introducing Digital Media Academy’s HOW-TO Video Series
DMA’s HOW-TO videos offer you the ability to learn online from the best the industry has to offer. Digital Media Academy makes it easy to get the skills, since we cover everything from basics to advanced techniques.

Hosting the first video in the series is DMA instructor Tyler Winick. Tyler is the Creative Coordinator for the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, and brings years of professional experience to DMA. He’s also an accomplished audio and video producer in his own right, having worked with artists like Yoko Ono and The Black Eyed Peas. If you want to learn how to use the tools of the musician’s trade, there’s no one better suited to show you the ropes than Tyler.
