SF Music Tech

How do you feel about your music-business skills? Do you want to know where music apps are going and how stuff will be streamed? In what has been called the best music and technology conference, you can learn about the evolution of the music/business/technology ecosystem. The SF MusicTech Summit is the buzzing hub of music production conferences and takes place on September 12. It’s a great way to make sure you’re ahead of the game and to keep yourself on track.  NextAid’s BIDS BUILD HOPE auction is giving you the chance to meet up with visionaries, get inspired, and definitely eat a finger sandwich or two. http://tinyurl.com/3znmy4m

Groove Cruise

Like to play hard and dance harder? How would you feel about doing it on January 27-30 on The World’s Largest Floating Dance Music Festival? (This is a rhetorical question. We all know you feel like it’s the best thing you’ve ever heard) You should definitely consider joining the world’s best dance music artists on a giant cruise shop sailing from Miami to exotic magical lands. 2000 sexy people, 72 hours, 55 artists, 9 party experiences, 2 islands, AND MIAMI http://tinyurl.com/3czwec2

Dubspot Ableton classes

Ever found a song on YouTube and felt suddenly inspired to try your own hand at the music industry game? Did you then immediately rain on your own parade by realizing that you don’t know what the hell you’re doing? Dubspot Abletons Live Producer Certificate Online Program can change all that. Every Ableton Live course offered at the school is offered online. After completing the 6-level program, you will have 4 full tracks (EP), a remix entered in an active contest, a scored commercial to widen your scope, and the Dubspot Producers Certificate in Ableton Live.

Dubspot Traktor The definition of DJing has changed dramatically in the last decade. Laptops, controllers, and software have emerged alongside more traditional turntables and CD’s, smashing the barrier to entry. In today’s digital age, anyone can become a DJ. To reflect this renaissance, Dubspot has created the Digital DJing with Traktor program. In both our physical and online schools, students will learn how to DJ entirely with Traktor’s cutting-edge technology. An emphasis will be placed on the concepts of DJing rather than simply learning how to use the software.http://tinyurl.com/429w4gq
