As of January 10th 2019 we are no longer funded by the state.  Deana and myself have operated the school out of our own pockets for several years now so we will just continue doing what we do.  However we still have several people that feel it is a far better option to get the kids into our program.

So far we have had over 50 young adult complete our program with a 100% success rate for not becoming repeat offenders. Over 70% of the high school graduates are attending some form of industry trade school. 


We can always use any type of audio equipment and software. The kids are always willing to learn anything new and they learn fast.  Sometimes it is very hard to keep up with technology. When it comes to software we prefer to send them away with full versions so it can follow them into their career in the music industry.


We have recently started music theory classes and it has been a huge hit with the younger program participants.  This includes learning to play an instrument as well as sound design and some basic recording techniques.



Items we could use for our school

  • Old computers (Macs please)
  • Musical instruments (it honestly doesn’t matter. The kids just want to learn)
  • Speakers (Blown drivers are fine. Most manufacturers will repair the monitors for us at no charge)
  • Headphones
  • Software
  • Plugins
  • Tables and Chairs
  • Clothing to fit young boys 12- 17y/o
