Beats by U!


Unleash Your Inner DJ!!

Beats by U! teaches the ins and outs of digital music production through a series of exercises designed to help you master the steps involved in producing your own music.


This new program opens the doors to musical exploration for young people, providing participants with the tools to express themselves creatively, be adventurous with technology, and build confidence. The course is designed for participants who show a dedication towards cultivating their existing musical talents or perhaps exploring music for the first time through non-traditional avenues. Participants use their own personalized computer work-station equipped with piano and pad Midi controllers connected to state-of-the-art music production software. Participants will learn about music history, culture, and theory from DJing to production, spinning to composition and will be inspired towards perfecting their craft through workshops with special guest producers.

The Hamilton Music Collective offers this course in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club to youth at the club’s Sanford location with additional courses to be offered at the Gasworks location soon.
