The Beat Academy Mentorship Experience

By invitation only

With 60,000 new songs being uploaded to Spotify every day, it is harder than ever to get your music to stand out. To help you rise above the noise, Grammy-nominated producer, ill Factor is launching a private mentorship program.

You'll get Weekly Mentor Sessions, and up-and-close feedback on your music productions and artistic direction with the most hands-on opportunity we’ve ever put together for aspiring music producers and artists. This is the fastest way to make your musical vision become a reality.

How The Program Works

Inside Beat Academy Mentorship, you’ll have direct access to ill Factor for 6 months, to get up close and personal mentoring. Using our closed membership platform and other software to share audio files, you'll receive mentoring and feedback tailored to your specific needs to take your music to the next level. Whether you need pointers on how to get your song to sound professional, or getting your vocals sounding as good as your favorite artists, or you're trying to figure out your own unique sound and artistic direction, you'll get expert attention and feedback (Mon-Fri) to ensure you rapidly improve as a music producer.

In addition to mentorship in the small group of students, you will also be part of an intimate weekly group masterclass (held on Zoom) where ill Factor will dive deeper into your songs and provide expert music production insights. This will also be a chance to meet and collaborate with like-minded music makers.
