Hip Hop Producer Program: If you are already a producer, but looking for that edge that will make your beats pro, this is it. This course is designed for MCs & producers looking to dig in and excel in their craft. If you want to sell your beats, collaborate, and dominate the field - you need to be working alongside someone already doing it. Join our seasoned professional producers and MCs for this one-of-a-kind program.

DJ Program: Today’s DJs are experts on the power of music to move people, and with the right knowledge that power can be yours. Learn to rock a set on any format of professional DJ tools. This class covers everything you’ll need to create an effective and powerful set, from beat and key matching, using the DJ mixer and effects, reading the crowd, and more!

Recording Arts Program: Slam Academy’s Recording Arts Program is unlike any other recording program. We don’t focus on the Hollywood studio, the million-dollar consoles, or the “industry standard” version of Pro Tools. Instead, we focus on capturing great recordings and getting the best results in our home studios, laptops, affordable equipment, and Ableton Live.

Sound Design Program: In this program, you will be guided through everything you need to know to create incredible sounds from scratch. The course begins at the heart of sound creation with an in-depth study of the nature of both acoustic and electronic sound through analog and modular subtractive synthesis, and continues all the way through designing incredible drums, synths, basses, and more for your own tracks.

Music Industry Program: We live in an attention economy. What will differentiate your sound from other releases? This course focuses on myriad of aspects related to marketing and promotion in the modern music industry while also covering critical topics like copyright, sample clearance, business registration, taxes, and emerging revenue sources.

Mixing and Mastering Program: In today’s competitive music industry, poorly mixed or mastered music gets lost in the fray. To stand out from the crowd, tracks need to have the sonic clarity, punch, and polish that is achieved through the process of mixing and mastering. Join our mixing and mastering professional engineers for this exciting and dynamic class.

Producer Program: At Slam Academy, this is where it all comes together. Think of the Producer Program like a capstone class. Turn your sketches into records in the studio with veteran producers and musicians. This program has no handouts, no outline, and no homework. There are no levels for this program. Just you, your classmates, in the studio with super producers, engineers, and musicians: making and releasing hits.
