Tailored for educators, open to all

From WondaGurl to Ebonie Smith, Black women have produced award-winning pop hits. Yet they are not always household names like some of their counterparts. In Respect Her Crank!: Producing Sounds of Blackness, this changes. Award-winning producer J’Nae White facilitates multiple workshops designed to teach the art of music production, as inspired by Black women producers.

This final workshop is a comprehensive exploration of the tools, techniques, and workflow required to produce RnB and hip-hop music. Inspired by the famous Missy Elliot, you will have the opportunity to learn advanced skills and apply them using FL StudioSoundation, and Sampulator.
