At Dubspot we believe in opening the doors to musical exploration for young people–providing kids with the tools to express themselves creatively, be adventurous with technology, and build confidence.
Our Kids DJ / Producer Program is a fun educational program in which students learn about music by studying DJing and electronic music production. By mixing records with Serato and producing their own beats and sounds with Ableton Live, young students learn the fundamentals of modern performance and composition and are encouraged to express their creativity through music.
In this video, Dubspot instructors DJ Reborn and JP Solis take us through the specific courses that make up the Kids DJ / Producer Program:
Hit the Decks: DJing for Kids is where kids get to learn the basics of DJing, mixing and scratching vinyl records as well as digital DJing with a computer. At the end of this class, students will come away with their own recorded mix and fuller understanding of the fundamentals involved in DJing.
The Beat Generation course exposes kids to the creative art of music production using Ableton Live, one of the most advanced yet most intuitive production tools available. At the conclusion of the course, students will come away with their own original song and one remix, produced in Ableton.
