“The younger you start kids, the more access they’re going to have to it, the more they’re going to develop — the more advanced their understanding.”

An official video capturing one of TFS’s many sponsored live events — Battered Beats VI Beat Battle and Live Showcase at Soul Groove.

“It’s kind of crazy. We’ve taught as young as kindergarten and are actively teaching first, second, third, and up right now.”

TFS teaching students in Peru how to make beats.

“Even when we talk to the kids, we talk about copyright and thinking about, ‘How do you monetize?’”

The Bandcamp version of Today’s Future Sound Presents: A Sound Foundation (Beat Tape​/​Compilation).

“There’s this fantasy that you can magically go out and people are going to listen to your beats. And it doesn’t just happen magically.”
