It’s Graduation Day for The Beat Academy

After a long week of rigorous scratching and mixing, it’s finally time for the young DJs of the Beat Academy to show everyone what they’ve got. Join us tonight for Beat Academy’s Final Performance at the Mmmmaven Project here in Central Square! Campers ages 10 – 14 will show us what they’ve got before graduating from Mmmmaven’s inaugural summer camp.

Beat Academy Graduation

Over the course of the week, campers learned the ins and outs of industry standard equipment, got their hands dirty in some new technology, and produced their first six-song mini-mix. They learned how to organize their favorite tracks and get in the mix with different styles, and now is their opportunity to see if they have what it takes to play in front of a crowd of screaming fans!

Come out and support the new generation of DJs at 5PM, you’ll be blown away.

Beat Academy Starts Next Week!

That’s right, Mmmmaven’s inaugural Beat Academy starts next Monday. All aspiring DJs or Producers from the ages of 10 to 14 are invited to sign up for the week long DJ bootcamp. This week is your last chance to register, and you can still get the 15% discount if you hurry!
