“Beat Camp,” a comprehensive experience for aspiring music producers, recording artists, and audio engineers, will be presented at SAE Institute New York from Friday, November 7 through Sunday, November 8. “Beat Camp” is a partnership between SAE Institute and iStandard Producers, an organization that creates networking and collaboration opportunities for professional music producers.
“Attendance at ‘Beat Camp’ is a perfect first-step for aspiring music business professionals who want to turbocharge their careers,” says SAE New York Campus Director Steven Kashkin. “The education and networking opportunities for participants will be incredible, and will allow anyone who’s serious about working in today’s music industry 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 top industry professionals with major credits and experience, including stars such as Rockwilder, Buckwild, Rsonist (of The Heatmakerz), !llmind, Jimi Kendrix, Symbolyc One aka S1, Baby Paul, and many more.

“To me, ‘Beat Camp’ is music business boot camp,” says iStandard co-founder J. Hatch. “The pros who are participating in the seminars inject real life, first-hand experience into the discussion, and let attendees know that being a working music professional isn’t just about beats and grooves – it’s a business. By the time ‘Beat Camp’ is over, every attendee in the house will know exactly what he or she needs to do to take their career to the next level.”
