Beatshop is a music workshop that teaches basic composition, music theory and piano via technology. In this special workshop at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center, we will be experimenting with sampling different sound sources, such as traditional instruments found in Asian Pacific Islander cultures. If you are interested in mixing the traditional methods and instruments of Asian Pacific Islander cultures with the new mediums and professional technologies available today, this workshop is for you! We'll give you a comprehensive guide through all of the vast possibilities in sound creation and exploration! All music backgrounds and levels welcome!

The founder and teacher of Beatshop, Korin Wong-Horiuchi, is of Japanese and Chinese descent and is very interested in all forms of music. He has studied Electronic Production at Berklee College of Music in Boston and recently recorded Taiko in Japan.
Propellerheads Inc., a renown music software company based in Stockholm, Sweden, helped two Berklee College of Music graduates start Beatshop in 2010. Together, Beatshop and Propellerhead are advancing music education through a hybrid approach of traditional methods paired with innovative technology. The curriculum is designed to introduce students to elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, sound design, arranging, and collaboration through playing together. Propellerhead’s software program, Reason, is the most popular today among beginning composers because of its intuitive visual interface, vast instrument library and its unique virtual wiring layout that teaches students about the flow of audio signals from the sound source to their headphones.
