Description

We are about to embark on a new semester of Beatshop at the Mission Cultural Center starting the week of September 30th and October 7th.

We are starting a new Ableton Live Jam Ensemble class. There are also 2 new iMacs at the lab through a gracious grant we received!

----Reason & Ableton Live Classes----
We are offering the normal classes:
* Propellerhead Reason Workshop
* Ableton Live Workshop or both if there is enough interest.

COST: $64/$80 for youth/adult - 8 classes.
TIME AND DATE: M-F 4pm or later. Email [email protected] for more info and open slots.

----New! Ableton Live Jam Ensemble----

We are also starting a NEW class called Ableton Live Jam Ensemble! In this class we will jam together in Ableton Live combining loops, improvising riffs, sequencing drum loops, mixing it all together and applying DJ effects -- all in the spur of the moment! We've experimented with jamming together in past workshops, and everyone loved it so much that I decided to make a dedicated class.

You can bring in your own collection of favorite songs, loops, and sounds and if you don't have any, you can use our laptops and sound library at the lab. Feel free to bring in your own laptop as well because we have 5 audio interfaces that I will run through the mixer on the teacher station for further manipulation.

Who knows, we might have someone who's into Dub, someone who's into Deep House and someone who's into Polka and create a new genre - Deep Dub Polka.

ONLY A FEW SPOTS LEFT, SO LET ME KNOW ASAP.
*This is for people who already know a little bit about Ableton Live. We can do this in the regular workshops too!

COST: $64/$80 for youth/adult - 8 classes.
TIME AND DATE: M-F 4pm or later. Email [email protected] more info and open slots.

Check out this portion of a jam session with 4 Ableton Live laptops synced. It starts off as a whacky house beat then transforms and builds into a really cool dub/reggae half time beat.
