Learn more about the workshops BBG Guayaquil has planned for the next few months!
In their shared mission to provide access to creative tools to female and gender minority musicians, BBG Guayaquil (Ecuador) and Clave del Sur have planned an amazing series of workshops throughout February, March, and April.
The object of these workshops is to ensure that each participant walks away with the basic knowledge to be able to produce songs and express their creativity. Participants will learn to navigate different hardwares and softwares, and, additionally, they will learn a diverse set of techniques to achieve self expression. Using Ableton Live as the primary digital audio workstation, participants will get a chance to learn how to use audio interfaces, drumpads, and more throughout this ten class series.
These workshops are free of charge and open to anyone in the Guayaquil area. All production levels are welcome, between the ages of 14 and 40 years old.
