is a non-traditional, creative and educational music technology curriculum, collective, and community template designed to empower females to engage with music technology. We provide young women with the guidance, access, tools and role-support to develop their interest (and ultimately their ability to pursue career opportunities) in music production, composition and engineering. We are working towards gender equity in a field where women are highly underrepresented and strive to help other groups mobilize and create similar change in their own communities.


Hit Like A Girl is an annual drumming contest for female percussionists. Beats By Girlz will be collaborating with HLAG to offer a new Rhythm Technology category for this year’s contest. We are very excited about this addition to our contest!!

HLAG + BBG 2018 is the first annual global drum programming contest for female producers. Its purpose is to spotlight female beat makers/producers and encourage females to engage in music technology. The event is produced by Hit Like A Girl Contest in partnership with Beats By Girlz and our activities are made possible by the generous support of our partners, Ableton, ROLI and Sensel.
