Hip-Hop Cha Beat Making & Production Crash Course

  • Chattanooga Choo Choo Ballroom 1400 Market Street Chattanooga, TN, 37402 United States (map)

We are teaming up with Hip-Hop Cha to bring you our Beat Making program as a part of their Hip-Hop Music Festival!

Whether you produce tracks in a professional studio or are an aspiring musician working from your bedroom, in this course students will learn to operate and navigate DAW software with ease by creating original beats and synth based music. Regardless of where producers stand in their career, most agree that the tools/skills mastered through this type of program equip learners with the most essential foundational skills needed to excel in the pro audio world. In a nutshell, when you walk into a studio you will be able to walk the walk and talk the talk of an experienced producer or engineer. Aside from the technical experience gained by learning to engineer and produce beats, this genre of music making lends itself to collaboration. Most top songs featuring beat making have a wide variety of musicians, vocalists, and engineers involved throughout the process as opposed to rock music which typically has a small number of people involved throughout the process. Because of the collaborative nature of beat making, students and music professionals alike will get the unique opportunity to work with a wide variety of music professionals. Each student that successfully completes this program will walk away with the basic skills needed to approach projects built around digital music with absolute confidence.
