ABOUT
MIX MAJOR

We believe that every kid can create their own music.

 

Every week, we teach kids and teens from all over the USA how to make the music they love. 

 

Kids log off of their video games and social media and log in to our classes where they learn Electronic Music Production and unlock their creativity.  

 

What’s your favorite song?  You can make music that sounds just like it...with just a computer.

 

No musical training?  Not a problem, as long as you love music and have a good imagination.

 

Through our programs, kids and teens learn how to imagine, create, and share the music that’s in their head.

 

We can’t wait to help you unleash your creativity and discover your “inner beatmaker”.

Why choose Mix Major?

INCLUSIVE

NOT

EXCLUSIVE

Our programs engage everyone that loves music... including the most introverted.  It includes people that don't have God-given talent as a musician or performer.  

 

Everyone can participate in music education.

LIFE SKILLS

Our programs teach students how to listen actively, think critically, communicate confidently, and collaborate effectively.  Students learn how to find and create inspiration.  Students build confidence and self-esteem, all while having tons of fun. 

 

Students learn and practice skills that position them for success, not just in music, but in life...and that includes adults.

CREATIVITY

& CHOICE

With our programs, students can create the music in their head, as opposed to performing music written on a sheet of paper.  They can create and share music without having to perform it.  Plus, they can make whatever music they choose.  

 

Creativity plus choice equals engagement, enjoyment, and motivation.

ART & SCIENCE

Our programs are equal parts art and science: music and technologyCreativity generates musical ideas.  Technology brings these musical ideas to life.  Think of Mix Major as STEMM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, & Music!  

 

Left brain.  Right brain.  It's the best of both worlds

THEY MAKE COOL STUFF

Students can make beats, compose melodies and harmonies, write lyrics, and if they like, record vocals.  They can make remixes,  compose full-length original songs, or video game music.  They can create commercial jingles, movie soundtracks, or even ring-tones. 

 

If they can imagine it, they can create it. 

CONNECTION

As a Mix Major student, you're always engaged with like-minded creatives with range of music interests and skill levels.  Students share their work regularly, and in some cases even collaborate their their classmates.

This connection creates a inspiration "feedback loop" where students are constantly both learning from and inspiring their peers

 

ABOUT
THE FOUNDER

As a musician, DJ, and producer with 30+ years of experience, I’ve learned a lot about how to create good music and how to connect with listeners.  

 

As a father of two, I understand the importance of letting your kids discover their interests and develop their talents.

 

As an educator, I’ve made it my mission to help young people everywhere discover their “inner beatmaker” and make the music they love.

 

I’ve lived my dream as an artist by traveling the world with Madonna and making a living through music.

 

I feel truly blessed to realize a second dream...using music and creativity to make a positive impact on the lives of kids.

 

Thanks for visiting!  There’s more to accomplish in this journey and I hope you’ll stay with me for the ride.
