about BBG

Beats By Girlz is a non-traditional, creative and educational music technology curriculum, collective and community template designed by Associate Professor at The Berklee College of Music, Erin Barra-Jean.


Built in response to a workshop piloted in 2011 and initially developed at The Lower Eastside Girls Club in NYC, Beats By Girlz is designed to empower young women in music technology by providing them with the guidance, access, tools and role-support to develop their interest (and ultimately their ability to pursue career opportunities) in music production, composition, engineering, etc. The Beats By Girlz curriculum is available for licensing in schools and communities, regardless of classroom gender or gender balance. Gratis licenses will be given to schools who offer free or scholarship based programing to the communities. We also work with and support our direct partners who create their own Beats By Girlz chapters in their own communities.
