SAE Institute has announced its partnership with Girls Make Beats Inc., a non-profit organization aiming to empower girls pursuing a career in audio, to host a multi-city summer tour.
Based in South Florida, Girls Make Beats encourages girls aged 8 to 17 to pursue careers in the audio industry by expanding the female presence of DJs, Music Producers, and Audio Engineers. Founded in 2012 by audio engineer, music producer and recording artist, Tiffany Miranda, Girls Make Beats encourages young girls to pursue their passion in audio and music production by offering internships and the opportunity to unite and collaborate with other music industry professionals.
Girls Make Beats will be partnering with other industry leaders such as iHeartRadio, Ableton, Velocity, Gulfstream Park, Guitar Center, Studio Center Miami and title sponsor, Toyota for the Summer Tour. In partnership with SAE Institute, Girls Make Beats will host beat-making and DJ workshops using Ableton and Serato software at five SAE Institute locations within the United States:
- SAE Institute Atlanta: July 3rd-7th
- SAE Institute Chicago: July 10th-14th
- SAE Institute Los Angeles: July 17th-21st
- SAE Institute San Francisco: July 24th-28th
- Studio Center Miami: August 7th-11th
- SAE Institute New York: August 14th-18th
“The goal of our summer tour initiative is to introduce teen girls to the fields of music production, DJ'ing, and audio engineering, while simultaneously connecting them with a reputable educator like SAE Institute where they can continue their learning to pursue a career in audio,” says Tiffany Miranda.
Over the course of each 5-day workshop, the girls will gain hands-on experience with beat making and DJ software, followed by a performance opportunity, and an exclusive music industry panel. Workshop attendees will also have the opportunity to visit iconic recording studios in every city, including Paramount Pictures and Record Plant Recording Studio in Los Angeles, Platinum Sound Recording Studio and Atlantic Records in New York City, Patchwerk Recording Studios in Atlanta and select iHeartRadio stations.
The workshops are free to attend but space is limited to 12 girls per city. Registration is now available on the Girls Make Beats website.
