For aspiring producers who want to turbocharge their careers, the education and networking opportunities that 'Beat Camp' offers will be incredible.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
“Beat Camp”, a weekend seminar for aspiring songwriters, engineers, and music producers, will kick off a four-city tour at SAE Institute Miami on Friday, May 17.
“Beat Camp” is a partnership between SAE, which was recently recognized as being the best recording and engineering school in America by Vibe Magazine, and iStandard Producers, an organization that creates networking and collaboration opportunities for professional music producers. “Beat Camp” sponsors include Monster Energy Drink, XXL Magazine, and Native Instruments, a leading manufacturer of software and hardware for computer-based audio production and DJing.
“Attendance at ‘Beat Camp’ is an essential first-step for aspiring producers who want to turbocharge their careers,” says Vincent Brooks, Campus Director of SAE Institute Miami. “The education and networking opportunities for participants will be incredible, and will allow anyone who’s serious about working in the music business to make huge strides in their professional journeys.”
“Beat Camp” will feature classroom discussions on producer branding, management, A&R meeting simulations, studio techniques, networking/brand building strategies, songwriter-producer synergy, sampling, and live mixing sessions. Each seminar will be led by professional producers and engineers with major credits and experience, including such stars as Gorilla Tek, Streetrunner, Symbolyc One aka S1, DJ Blackout, Illmind, The Renegades, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, and more.
Evening “Beat Camp” activities will include the iStandard Producer Showcase, Celebrity Beat Cyphers, and Impromptu Beat Battles. There will also be vendor demos, raffles, and other special events throughout the weekend.
“I like to think of ‘Beat Camp’ as being boot camp for producers,” says J. Hatch, co-founder at iStandard. “The pros who are participating in the seminars inject first-hand experience into the discussion, and let attendees know that being a working music producer isn’t just about beats and grooves – it’s a business. By the time ‘Beat Camp’ is over, aspiring producers know exactly what they need to do to take their careers to the next level. In fact, a lot of guys who have come to our past events have gone on to become platinum-selling producers.”
Along with its debut at SAE Institute Miami (May 17 and 18), “Beat Camp” will also travel to other SAE campuses around the country in 2013, including Atlanta (7/19-7/21), Los Angeles (9/13-9/15), and New York (11/1-11/3).
