is proud to introduce artist, designer, producer, philanthropist
and Recorded Music Producer-in-Residence
As a music producer, Swizz has created hits for a long list of music legends, including Madonna, Britney Spears, Metallica, and Jay-Z. They seek him for his signature sound: brash instrumentals and futuristic beats layered with what’s become his sound mark – clever, catchy sound-overs on a track. From Beyonce’s Ring the Alarm to Limp Bizkit’s Rollin’, nearly every song he’s touched has turned to gold, platinum or diamond.
Not content to be just a successful producer/rapper since composing his first hit record in the early 90s, Swizz has branched out as an artist, designer, and philanthropist as well.
The Producer-in-Residence provides students with direct access to one of the music industry’s most successful entrepreneurs, filling the Department’s experiential education mandate. In his role as Producer-in-Residence, Swizz Beatz will guide students through a variety of portals, including one-on-one sessions, group lectures, songwriting critiques, and mentoring.
The Clive Davis Institute is an innovative undergraduate leadership training program for aspiring creative music entrepreneurs, housed at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. Students who dream of becoming leading executives, recording artists, record producers and music journalists come to us to learn the art and business of creating and selling hit music.
