Music production is a fun and rewarding process that everyone who listens to music, regardless of their own musical ability, benefits from. By learning music production, students will have the tools to create music compositions that can be used in collaborations with other artists and vocalists, and also for their own personal music projects. Students will also be empowered to create some of their favorite styles of music. Music production uses principles from science and engineering, but there is also artistry in music production, and the goal is to teach students how to create and produce their pieces with thought and meaning. In this course, the student will be working weekly on a project to be presented for an audience with The Arts Fund. The student will also retain an mp3 copy for their records. Being able to sing and/or play an instrument is not required.

ABOUT THE TAM PROGRAM
The Teen Arts Mentorship Program is a County-wide, 27-year-old arts enrichment and career development program that offers students ages 13-18 the unique opportunity to work closely with industry professionals and master artists in a studio environment. Working in small groups, students spend over 30 hours producing a portfolio of work to be exhibited and sold in The Arts Fund Community Gallery or performed in a public venue.
Students acquire specific art-making skills, and exhibition and/or performance experience, and are introduced to the aesthetic styles and career choices of artists in our community. The master artists become role models and references for students as they consider advanced studies in the arts.
