After-School Program for Musical Minds

Our after school workshops help students develop their skills in 3 key areas:

Composition: Collaborative songwriting in multiple genres

Performance: Playing instruments in a studio setting as students record the songs they have written

Production: Understanding the technical aspects of recording music, including software and hardware

New After School Format for 2017-2018

We will be putting together groups of students with similar interests and skill levels for once-a-week, 90-minute sessions of instruction and group project work. Some students may already have a clear idea of who they want to collaborate with, but we'll also create groups that we believe will be able to work together effectively. Groups can be as small as two or three students and as large as six students, and each group will have the goal of finishing three to five songs over the course of a semester.
