  • OUR STORY



ABOUT US


Music drives the heart and soul of what we do.

We are a team of music artists, DJs, engineers, managers and industry
professionals with a passion for music, which has inspired us to take action.
We believe everyone should have access to music education and its benefits.

Department of Sound was launched in 2019 with the mission to empower the
youth and simultaneously cultivate Sacramento into a media and entertainment
hub. We believe through music we can strengthen our city, build the creative
economy and provide multifaceted benefits for members of the community. 





WORKSHOP PROGRAMS


Since launching our pilot workshop in 2019, we’ve provided music production workshops
to middle and high school students in Sacramento. Our after-school programs teach
music production fundamentals by utilizing the latest in music technology. We have
partnered with Soundtrap, the Spotify-owned music and podcast recording software
for our upcoming Music Producer Academy Workshop Series this spring.

With music production at the forefront, we also initiate conversations
and tackle current issues around equality, mental health, financial well-being,
music tech, hardware, and career opportunities within the industry.

Benefits from our programs include boosted creative confidence, learning
life skills and increased engagement in both school and life in general.
