WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

beauty slap seminar

A "TED Talk style" presentation in which the band explains our creative and entrepreneurial approaches at a high level.  This seminar includes contributions from all members as well as a short performance.

music tech WORKSHOP

Led by DJ/Producer Jake Berntsen, this workshop explores the technology that makes Beauty Slap sound like it does.  From mixing sounds on stage to working with brass in the studio; this is how it works.

ensemble coachings

From the Indy 500 to Heinz Hall, Beauty Slap has played on a variety of stages.  This is a chance for us to bring that experience to students in a rehearsal setting, with hands on support provided by our brass section.

Entrepreneurial approaches

Turning a band into a business has a lot to do with the work that happens off stage.  This is where we explain our entrepreneurial strategy, touching on everything from merch sales to Facebook advertising campaigns.

WHAT DO WE MEAN INTER-

Disciplinary?

While each member of Beauty Slap boasts a high level of control over his instrument, what ultimately transforms the project from a band into a self sustaining company is the work that happens off stage.  Our entrepreneurial strategy actively prioritizes collaborations that touch on multiple disciplines, like incorporating new technologies in the studio and using the internet to propel our brand.  

This is what works for us, so in the classroom we focus on concrete ways to take an interdisciplinary approach to a career in the arts.

 

At your school we will explain the creative ins and outs of our collaboration between new school EDM and old school brass, but also why we sculpted the product that we did and how we approach selling it.
