In this workshop you’ll use music production software Ableton, to learn the basics of beat making and music production. You will practice creating your own unique beats using loops, software instruments, and your own custom sounds and then learn to manipulate these sounds using an array of audio effects. Learn how to design your own instruments to create a sound that is all yours!

Access to Gear and Technology Matters
We believe that access to high quality gear, technology and equipment should not be a barrier to civic participation. Therefore, Spy Hop has gear packages available for FREE for any student who needs it in order to take a Spy Hop class. Gear can be picked up at Spy Hop’s downtown facilities and kept for the duration of the program. Gear packages are coordinated directly with Spy Hop’s Program Director, Jeremy Chatelain.
Please review Spy Hop’s Gear Check-Out Policies.
