About Building Beats

Building Beats provides DJ and music programs that teach entrepreneurial, leadership, and life skills to underserved youth. We envision a world where any individual can pursue their passion and build a career out of it. To realize this vision, we empower individuals and help them become self‑sufficient, creative producers that will benefit their community while leading personally fulfilling lives.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Building Beats. .

What we’ll do

Vinyl is making a comeback around Williamsburg and Greenpoint! We'll meet at the Building Beats HQ and take you record shopping at one of Greenpoint's hidden-gem record shops. Then we'll head back to learn about the art of sampling and beat-making using the records you've picked out. By the end of the experience, you'll have an awesome beat that you've produced to take home.

What else you should know

Please note that we will be walking from the headquarters to the record store—about five blocks and back. Comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing are recommended.

What I’ll provide

Beat-making equipment
I'll also provide a one-dollar bin record for each participant.

What to bring

Headphones
