Today’s Future Sound

Today’s Future Sound (TFS) is a fiscal project of Friends of Oakland Parks and Recreation, a 501c3 based in Oakland, CA. TFS was founded by producer/beat maker Ben Durazzo in 2010 while teaching in schools in Berkeley and Oakland. Dr. Elliott Gann joined in 2012. TFS currently teaches music production, beat making, and DJ’ing to youth and the general public in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. These services are offered in schools during the school day, after school, and in community settings, both in Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area, and on a national basis in the United States (New York, Mississippi and Louisiana), as well as internationally. Such activities are used as educational, artistic and therapeutic/wellness interventions primarily targeting under served populations. As an Oakland-based organization, TFS focuses on uplifting, inspiring and empowering the youth of Oakland.

Today’s Future Sound uses music production and media arts as vehicles through which to empower youth as artists and community members while fostering their well-being as individuals.
