If you want people to find and listen to your beats, it helps to know where and how to share them!

Think About

  • Where do people share beats so others can hear them?
  • Where are the best places to share beats and why?
  • How can you get more people to listen to or discover your music?

Get Started

Go to or and do the following:

  1. Search for a genre, style of music, hashtag (for example #trap or #oldschool) or artist that you like
    1. [NOTE: Be conscious that soundcloud and bandcamp contain music that some people consider inappropriate for certain contexts – please be respectful of your context]
  2. Observe the search results
  3. Listen to several of the tracks that appear [please be respectful of your context]
  4. When you find an artist you like, click on their profile
  5. See what other social media sites the artist links to on their profile
  6. Think about and answer the following questions
  • Why do you think artists share their music on these platforms?
  • What makes these platforms useful for sharing music?
