Beat Making Lab in UNC Music Department


I’ve taught courses at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill since 2009, but until this semester all of my courses have been in the Department of African and African American Studies. This semester I have the privilege of developing a new class just a few buildings down from Battle Hall in the Music Department. The course is a Beat Making Lab founded by music professor and budding DJ Dr. Mark Katz and internationally renown beat battle champion Apple Juice Kid. The curriculum covers three areas: practical beat making, a history of beat making, and entrepreneurship in the music industry. Students will learn how to use the open-source software Audacity, Reason 6 and Abelton Live, as well as engage career producers, beat makers and music industry professionals. If you’re interested in keeping up with the class, “like” us on facebook and follow me on twitter (@durhamite). Should be an interesting semester.
