About this Program

Join us in week 3 of the 4 week workshop series where students will receive hands-on training & learn how DJ's create mixes, incorporate scratching & remix techniques, & curate their own music playlist using industry standard software & hardware.

In another program in celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, Compton Library is partnering with MUSIC to the Ears and Academix BEAT Lab to bring your teens a free DJing workshop series. DJing is the perfect blend of music and creativity, allowing students to express themselves in unique and exciting ways. With the skills and knowledge gained through our workshop series, students will have the opportunity to take their love of music and express themselves through the ART of DJing. We will use music, media and arts education as a gateway for students to discover, explore and develop their talents, while also preparing them for creative and career pathways in the music, media, and entertainment industry. This program will help students discover their capacity for creativity, technological innovation, and entrepreneurship.

MUSIC to the Ears and Academix BEAT Lab are a full-service industry sector partner and provider for education, entrepreneurship and entertainment career training service. They combine their expertise, network, and resources to expose, educate, develop and prepare students for creative and career pathways. They work with key community partners to implement targeted education and career training programs focused on music, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
