Today’s Future Sound is a unique hands on program aimed to teach character skills through the creation of music. Not only does the program help kids foster important character skills, but it also serves as therapy kids who have experience various types of trauma. Founded by Dr. Elliot Gann, in Oakland California, This evidence and research based program has proven to help students to do better academically, socially and mentally. The program teaches students the art of beat making, songwriting, and the history of hip-hop. While building upon character, students get an opportunity to create music and even put together their very own class project. They also get an opportunity to put on a performance for their school or community. This is something something not only they can be proud of, but their parents, teachers, and other people in their communities.
