WORKSHOP: Music Production For Everyone with PlayPlay

July 25th, 
7pm – 9pm
Free

RSVP on Facebook

The idea of being a music producer is often intimidating – who has money for a studio with a giant mixing board, a sound-treated room and even the top software costs more than PlayPlay’s car. But there are ways to make music for free using just a laptop. In this two hour hands-on music production workshop, PlayPlay will teach attendees how to make rhythms using just a laptop and a free web-based music making program, Soundtrap. Expect to learn basic music production theory, how to utilize loops, how to make beats from scratch, and how to arrange the elements of a song in a cohesive way.

Attendees should bring a laptop with the Google Chrome browser installed if they want to participate in the hands-on portion, but everyone is welcome to listen in!
