October: A Time to Make Beats

Drumming, DJing, and more at the Foundry!

We're excited to offer some very special classes this October. We're again holding our African Drumming class with Mass Mbaye. Mass just got back from visiting his family in Senegal and brought with him more sabar drums! We are pleased to say that Elmore Lawson will be leading a free drum circle on Saturday mornings followed by a Djembe class. And another new class that people have been asking for is Electronic Music: DJing and Production by local DJ and beatmaker Ryan Savic.

See our programs page for more details.

Happy Birthday Madison Music Foundry and Blast House Studios!
