At the core of Slam Academy’s mission is a commitment to take each student - be they a brand new artist or an advanced learner - to the next level.

Slam Academy classes are offered in themed ‘modules’: three classes per module, one two-hour class per week, dedicated to instruction in one subject. Our goal is to connect experts from all corners of the Twin Cities arts community to students of all ages and skill levels.

Our core educators are experts in the field of music, with credentials including extensive Ableton Certification and advanced degrees in music composition and theory. They are also creative professionals and seasoned educators with years of experience in the studio, the club and the classroom.

As a midwest hub for creative education in varied forms of digital media, Slam Academy also brings frequent guest presentations to the roster, including Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson, Ean Golden, Dustin Zahn, John Keston, Beatrix JAR, and many more. Our goal is to connect experts from all corners of the digital art world to the next generation of creative minds. These include artists working in live video processing, interactive digital art and photography, as well as renowned DJs and recording artists.
