Due to COVID-19 Spy Hop has made the difficult decision to postpone Resonate until 2021. Join our mailing list to stay up to date on all programming changes.

Hip-Hop production

Resonate is a fast-paced hip-hop production program that celebrates the use of rap as a vehicle for self-expression and social change. In this class, you will be challenged to write verses that relate to your life, your community, and the world. Using Ableton music production software, you will produce original beats, learn about sampling, basic music theory and mixing basics for your recordings. You and your crew will perform your music on the radio and in front of live audiences.

What Happens in this Class:

  • Expand your beatmaking abilities on instruments and software.
  • Learn production techniques on industry standard software currently used by professionals in the music industry.
  • Increase your sense of rhythm and flow.
  • Create a Hip-hop group/project with your peers. This involves either beatmaking, rapping, or singing. This group will put an album or EP out on Soundcloud as well as performing some live shows.
  • Practice/ brush up on scratching vinyl on a DJ setup.
