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.
Co-founder and director, Dr. Elliot Gann, a professional psychologist/producer, has been teaching in San Francisco Bay Area schools and community settings for nearly a decade. He has also conducted empirical dissertation research on Therapeutic Hip Hop activity groups, involving both rapping and beatmaking, which demonstrated the significant positive effects of such interventions. Building off of both his research findings and experience, Dr. Gann is now leading TFS to continue such work and further advocate for its use, including expanded wellness/mental health, educational, economic and social justice applications.
I see a collaboration in our future!
