Instructed by Charles “BLVK Samurai” Burchell, the course comes
with two free months of Splice samples
New York, NY, April 3, 2019 – Soundfly [https://soundfly.com/?utm_source=press&utm_campaign=hiphop], the most effective online music school for musicians at a variety of levels, has launched a new course, The Art of Hip-Hop Production[https://soundfly.com/courses/hip-hop-music-production?utm_source=press&utm_campaign=hiphop], led by multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer Charles “BLVK Samurai” Burchell [http://charlesburchell.com/site/]. And to sweeten the deal, they’ve partnered with creative music production platform Splice [https://splice.com/] to provide students with two months of free access to millions of high-quality samples, including a brand new original sample pack from Burchell’s group, The Love Experiment.
A music teacher for over a decade, Burchell is a cultural diplomat from New Orleans with a master’s degree in education from Harvard Graduate School. He has toured across the U.S. with The Love Experiment and performed alongside world-renowned artists such as Talib Kweli, Iman Omari, Nesby Phips, and many more.
The course is Soundfly’s first to tackle the ascendant hip-hop genre. It will immerse students in the rich history and influence that hip-hop has had on music and culture over the last 40 years. Students will learn the essential tools and techniques of hip-hop production, including how to build a hip-hop beat from scratch, arrange tracks, and creatively use samples. In addition, as with all paid Soundfly courses, students get six weeks of one-on-one coaching from an expert Soundfly Mentor who helps tailor the course to the student's personal goals and experience level.
“Hip-hop is currently the most popular genre of music in the world, but it’s vastly underrepresented in education,” said Ian Temple, founder and CEO of Soundfly. “We’re thrilled to help remedy that, and give aspiring beat makers the personal support and coaching they need to push the genre forward, while also understanding where it came from.”
“While hip-hop is all about a great vocal performance, it’s often the beat that’s the foundational source of energy for that performance,” said instructor Charles Burchell. “Our goal with this course is to give students the tools to create that energy and express themselves more fully, drawing on the genre’s rich legacy.”
“We are very happy to team up with Soundfly to help future creators discover the boundless possibilities of hip-hop music,” said Sam Hamad, Partnerships at Splice. “Artists can find everything they need to craft their sound with our vast library of over two million samples, loops, and effects.”
