The Hip Hop Transformation is a program for teens ages 14-18 offered by the Cambridge Community Center. The program teaches teenagers everything from the history of hip hop in our society to the art of songwriting and performing. By the end of the program, the students will have recorded a song that is released on a THHT mixtape, and also distributed throughout Cambridge. Not only this, but they also gain real life experience of performing live in front of their peers and a crowd.

Next week The Hip Hop Transformation comes to MMMMaven in order to learn the other side of hip hop, the beat making. The teenagers from the program will visit the production labs at MMMMaven in order to learn how to create beats from Ableton instructor Nick Garcia.
