DJ Jazzy Jeff has officially launched his debut online music-producing program, “Making Beats with DJ Jazzy Jeff.” Powered by CafeMedia, the intensive six-week live and interactive online program will provide content creators, DJs, and aspiring producers of all skill levels with the resources to build the core foundational skills for music production.
Each week participants will have their beat-making skills sharpened through intricate step-by-step video module lessons ranging from drums, melody, arrangements, mixing, and sampling, which the participants will then apply to their own produced tracks. Students will also be treated to surprise award-winning musical guest appearances throughout the program and the opportunity to have their produced work critiqued during one-on-one feedback sessions with influential producers.
“I’m excited to be launching this new program,” said DJ Jazzy Jeff. “It’s really important for me to pass down knowledge that I have acquired to the next generation of producers and Beatmakers. Giving the next generation a shot to make it in the music industry is special to me.”
The course will be available in two different tiers:
DIY version: Includes the full-video program, written exercises, and bonus resources.
Interactive version: Includes the full-video program, written exercises, bonus resources, weekly live sessions with DJ Jazzy Jeff and other special guests, the exclusive chance to have produced work played in DJ Jazzy Jeff’s live DJ sets, weekly feedback on submitted tracks and exclusive access to online student community forums
By the end of the program, students will be equipped with three finished original tracks and a wealth of newly cultivated production skills vital to each participant’s expanding musical career.
