***TODAY'S FUTURE SOUND****
Currently, we offer free training in the San Francisco Bay Area that covers progressive techniques employed in Hip/Hop and Electronic music production and DJ'ing.
Co-founder and director, Dr. Elliot Gann, a professional psychologist/producer, has been teaching in San Francisco Bay Area schools and community settings for nearly a decade. He has also conducted empirical dissertation research on Therapeutic Hip Hop activity groups, involving both rapping and beatmaking, which demonstrated the significant positive effects of such interventions. Building off of both his research findings and experience, Dr. Gann is now leading TFS to continue such work and further advocate for its use, including expanded wellness/mental health, educational, economic and social justice applications.
Our focus is on underserved communities particularly in Oakland, where we are based. We do workshops and ongoing classes in both community settings (community and youth centers like Youth Uprising) and in Oakland/Berkeley Unified School Districts at schools such as King, Edna Brewer, West Oakland Middle, Jefferson and Hoover Elementary among other places. This includes current collaborative work being done with Science, Math, Computer and Technology teachers at West Oakland Middle School to find innovative ways of delivering STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum.
