This Friday, our talented young students of the MMMMaven Beat Academy program will be showcasing the skills they have learned throughout the week long summer camp.

In the camp, students from the ages of 9-12 learn about industry standard equipment, basic mixing techniques, recording, and stage-presence. Several workshops such as Music Business, Songwriting, MIDI Mapping, and more are provided for the students to help educate and make the most of their experience at MMMMaven.

This is a great event for family and for those interested in joining the next Beat Academy Summer Camp session. Food and refreshments will be provided. The fun begins Friday at 3:30pm. If you are in the are, come on by.

Watching these young people fulfill their dream of becoming a real DJ is something to behold and almost a reward in and of itself.

What is Beat Academy?
Over the course of the week, campers will learn the ins and outs of djing on industry- leading equipment and software, including the number 1 dj software in the U.S., Serato. Students will produce their first six song mini-mix with different styles and genres, then see if they have what it takes to play in front of a crowd of screaming fans.

RSVP to the open house here.

What we’ve found is that this course is a great introduction to the basics of music in general. Our young students learn basics like phrasing, key structures, melodies and introductory music writing skills. As our Co-Director put it so eloquently over at LinkedIn:

In our lab, when we teach young people music skills through a device or a controller, their eyes light up. They suddenly love music. I’ve had parents say as much again and again: “My daughter has learned more in one month here than she ever did at piano classes.”
