Summer Intensive Programs

Learn to Explore

Slam Academy is dedicated to helping students of all ages discover musical expression and creativity. Whether your child decides to pursue music as a life-long activity or not, learning music technology is an astounding way to teach younger students about technology, computers, collaboration, social skills, and countless other competencies.

For the summer of 2017 we’ve expanded our summer offerings to include 2 programs: First, the Young Producers Program, which has been successful for the last 4 years, and is ideal for students interested in learning how to make the music that they love listening to. And new this year: The DJ Intensive Program: for students who want to learn how to perform, beat-match, and get on stage.

Young Producer Summer Program

Dates: August 14 – 18th, 10am – 2pm daily
Cost: 
$499 (lunch Included)
Ages: 8th – 12th Grades
Location: Slam Academy Studios (NE Minneapolis: 1121 NE Jackson St, Suite 142, Minneapolis, MN 55413)

This innovative  program is designed for students in 8th – 12th grades. The camp is one week long, from 10am to 2pm every day (Monday – Friday), taught by Ted Moore (MacPhail Center for Music, McNally Smith School of Music). The camp takes place at Slam Academy in Northeast Minneapolis, and lunch is provided.

Students will be walked through all of the fundamental concepts and practices of the modern producer. Starting with beat and loop-making, students will be quickly acclimated to the simple and fun workflows within the celebrated Ableton Live software environment. Once the groove is assembled, we will build upon our rhythms with basslines, melodies, harmonies and effects.  The class completes with several tunes and a lesson about distributing them to the public via Soundcloud, Bandcamp, and more!
