Beats By Girlz is a non-traditional, creative and educational music technology curriculum and initiative designed by Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music, Erin Barra.
Built in response to a workshop piloted in 2011 and initially developed at The Lower Eastside Girls Club in NYC, Beats By Girlz is designed to empower young women in music technology by providing them with the guidance, access, tools and role-support to develop their interest (and ultimately their ability to pursue career opportunities) in music production, composition, engineering, etc.
Beats by Girlz & Mmmmaven present an open house to learn more about the music program this January for girls, non-gender binary, and/or trans youth ages 8-13.
You’ll have an opportunity to play around with equipment and ask instructors questions. We’ll also be raising money for scholarships, featuring prizes from Izotope, Moog Music, Focusrite, Roli and more!
