In a time where so many arts and music education programs are being cut from schools and after-school programs, we aim to help fill that void by providing hands on arts integrated training for our youth. We are artists who care about the impact of our creative content and with your support we can empower more youth. Our goal is to raise $25,000.00 that will be used to record this 10 track album in a professional studio with an award winning engineer with professional live musicians and publish a curriculum guide based on the music. We aim to start the recording project the first week of April and it will run the entire month of April 2018. Our tentative release date for a finished product will be the second week of May 2018.
We ask that you donate to our campaign today and help us hit our minimum target of $25,000 and reach our ultimate goal of $30,000 to fully fund this project. Money raised will go to cover out of pocket expenses for the recording sessions, musicians, engineers, studio use, post production of mixing and mastering, design, photography, cinematography (there are plans to release a music video to one of the songs with students involved), CD duplication, merchandise, and promotion. Creating and publishing the curriculum with the help of Educational Consultants. A fully funded campaign will allow us to create a phenomenal album, curriculum, and tour/lecture series throughout the Southeast and beyond.
