Beat Kitchen

Beat Kitchen is the soup-to-nuts music production school for creatives. We are artist-instructors teaching music production, live, in small classes.

Beat Kitchen began with a vision: to provide a place for creatives to play with their food. We help musical mad scientists, hungry beatmakers, and curious rookies learn a broad and plastic set of music production skills.

Part residency, part school, our mission is to reach, teach, and feed creative souls. Our teachers are like our students: talented, intellectually curious, and deeply conscientious. We are continuous learners, experts, and beginners. Some of us are misfits and dreamers—all united in our desire to learn and explore.

Open to all through our partner studios/facilities and online.
