Big thanks and shouts to Adidas #NiteJogger's Nite School, the amazing Austin Millz and our very own Fyutch for this very one-of-a-kind in-depth music production series. Select students were able to work one-on-one with Austin and Fyutch and get critiqued on their music during this workshop series.

Earlier this month, we hosted a group of very talented students from Vermont’s Friends For A.Dog for a crash course into beat-making by sampling vinyl. Led by our own Pozibelle, Vermont students were paired up with some of our local NYC students for a collaborative beat-making session only from sampling random records that the students had picked out from Academy Records.

Interested in learning how to make a beat by sampling vinyl? Do check out our AirBnB experience. For ages 12 through adult.
