The First Beat Making Lab

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

 

Get behind the beat and find out what happens at the Beat Making Lab! Take a look inside the origins of this PBS Digital series filmed at UNC Chapel Hill, where students learn to make techno, dance and rap music using technology as their instrument.

In the video above, Associate Professor Mark Katz and Adjunct Professor Stephen Levitin (also known by his DJ handle, Apple Juice Kid) explore a new method of teaching music, targeting tech-savvy students without formal training in the arts and teaching the backbones of music production.

The popular Beat Making Lab not only exposes young minds to the creative process but to the entrepreneurial aspects of making beats as well. Watch as the instructors become as equally as inspired as the students! Learn more: http://to.pbs.org/1q4wSpt
