Lauren Kop
Lecturer - Music Industry (Digital Production and Beat Design)

As a producer, DJ, vocalist, and composer, LA native Lauren Kop has cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic and gained the respected roles of mentor and emerging talent within their community. Blending musical styles and drawing inspiration from 80s, Y2K pop, R&B, and dance influences, Lauren has written, produced, and released multiple EPs and an album under the artist name mini bear. Passionate about community building and helping to create opportunities and representation for folks of marginalized genders as producers, they’ve taught music production at Girl’s Rock camp and IO Music Academy, and they are the Chief Education Officer at FEMME HOUSE, a 501(C)  whose mission is to create opportunities for women and gender-expansive creatives in the technical areas of music.

An avid Ableton Live user and synth maven, they have collaborated with companies such as Moog, Ableton, Apogee, Splice, and BandLab. They were featured in Patch & Tweak with Moog, the ultimate book resource for synth enthusiasts, released sample packs for Splice and BandLab, and created a demo song for the app Ableton Note. With years of experience and dedication to mastery of Ableton Live and music production, their passion for sharing their expertise and empowering producers has led them to teaching workshops and courses that focus on maximizing creative potential through technology.
