The global leader in creative media studies introduces a workshop exploring beat making in Ableton Live as focused training for hobbyists and aspiring producers.

SAE Institute's Introduction to Beat Making workshop will teach students how to make beats in Ableton Live.

The Introduction to Beat Making workshop will be taught in four sessions over two weekends totaling 24 classroom hours.

Students will learn the fundamentals of creating beats and will receive hands-on training throughout the workshop to learn how to create music from start to finish.

SAE Institute announced the expansion of its creative media offerings with the launch of Introduction to Beat Making, a four session workshop totaling 24 classroom hours. Debuting at the Atlanta and New York campuses, Introduction to Beat Making is a limited-seating workshop that will begin Saturday, June 3, 2017 with a registration cost of $699.00.

Introduction to Beat Making will provide students with the skills to get started producing their own beats. Students will have the opportunity to explore the entire beat making process using Ableton Live, a digital audio workstation. This hands-on workshop will provide artists, producers, and hobbyists a core understanding of Ableton Live, creating drum kits, and applying effects to the principles of music theory.

As an entry-level workshop, Introduction to Beat Making will explore the way beats are created in various genres including Hip Hop, R&B, and electronic music. Students will complete the course with a song personally mixed and mastered from start to finish, applying the skills they have learned.

“This workshop is a great starting point for anyone looking to get into the world of beat making and music production,” says Gabriel Jones, National Director of Academics. “Students will learn the fundamentals of creating beats and will receive hands-on training throughout the workshop to learn how to create music from start to finish.”

SAE Institute campuses in Atlanta and New York City are preparing to grow their existing creative media programs to provide audiophiles with knowledge and hands-on experience. Both campuses currently offer accredited programs in Audio that focus on the foundations of sound engineering and business principles of the entertainment industry.

"I am really excited to announce the Introduction to Beat Making as an accelerated workshop in addition to our in-depth audio degree and diploma programs,” says Michael Bottrill, President and CFO. “For artists looking to learn more about Ableton Live and refine their production techniques, this is a great first step.”
