Spin Inc, a 501(c)(3) organization providing DJ and Music production education for young adults, serves Detroit communities as an creative and educational alternative to negative music influences. Research shows, music is beneficial for mental development and improves creative capacity. Music choice also influences our personalities. Music training can signfically improve our motor and reasoning skills. One study shows that children who have 3 years of musical training perform better than those who didn’t engage in training activities. Children and teens also tested better in vocabulary, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning skills.
Time Magazine reports in 2013 that even when our country economically was upside down, DJ Schools such as Dubspot, a New York based DJ and Music Production school, received triple enrollment, showing that when our country is at its worst, people turn to music. Detroit is the birthplace of “Techno Music” born by legends Juan Atkins , Derrick May Kevin Saunderson and Eddie Fowlkes. Juan Aktins notes his experience of having the opportunity to work as an apprentice on the “Electrifying MOJO” show, led to his success and his ability to mix original music.
Spin Inc will provide a positive impact using the transformational powers of music in health, education and well being.
