In this 90-minute workshop, Milwaukee-based producer “Q the Sun” will lead you through the process of making your own beats and writing a song. The process will include team/confidence-building warmup exercises, writing prompts, and hands-on experience using the music production software Ableton Live and Logic Pro. Don't forget to join us that night for the Levitt AMP Sheboygan Music Series. Q the Sun with Shaddye and Baby Mont will open for Cha Wa!
