Barrett Jones is the founder of Beat Club, a digital music jam for held in libraries, schools, museums, and homes across the district.
The club gives kids and teens a chance to learn about digital music by providing a wide range of electronic instruments to play with during fun, free-form sessions. The emphasis is on experimenting and trying things out: the typical steps one takes when learning how to use a new gadget.
This summer Beat Club held numerous jam sessions in libraries throughout the DC Public Library system. In this podcast, Barrett talks about why he started Beat Club, why kids love it, and why libraries make such a great venue for this type of hands-on learning.
