Imagine a songwriters’ circle, but for music producers, online.

The vibe

The Producers' Circle is not about expertise, but about community. Each session, participants share various pieces that they have worked on, explore how they made it, and receive a wide range of feedback from peers. It's all love.

Sometimes the hardest part is sharing something that isn't "finished." The more opportunities we have to develop that muscle, the easier it becomes.

You don't have to be a producer to hang out. Listeners are more than welcome, too. No pressure 😊.


This drop-in, co-curricular initiative seeks to support Hart House’s Hip Hop Education by bringing together beatmakers, producers, and music creators, primarily from the U of T community, in an informal and open space to share beats, tracks, techniques, questions and ideas.

The aim of these sessions is to create a supportive music production community of practice, dedicated to creative expression and artistic development. Whether you're just getting started or have been a producer for many years, this session is meant to be an inclusive environment for music producers of all levels and anyone interested in music production.

All genres of music are welcome!


This event is strictly for educational and community-building purposes. No copies of the sampled track will be created for the explicit purpose of distribution or monetization.

Event formats:

Sample Challenge: We provide a track and you chop it, sample it, flip it and create something new. We all share in a non-judgmental space.

Drop-in beat / track share: Bring any music you’re working on, or something you made ages ago! The point is to share music, learn from each other, and maybe get a few collaborations off the ground. All genres are welcome!

Workshops: We’ll bring in a guest to share their knowledge, wisdom, and approaches to various elements of music production and the industry. These are informal discussions, and not so much "presentations." Guests will also hang out and listen to tracks from the group.
