    Students explore the skills and outlets necessary to develop a visual element to their music artistry. Alongside professional technicians and designers, students work to create exciting live performances, utilizing inventive lighting, projections, and staging. Through critical analysis and hands-on exercises involving music videos, choreography, album covers, and more, students work to create their own unique visual style.


    Future Music Project Sampler Pack

    October 11–June 27
    Wednesdays, 4–6:30 PM

    Students sample all of the Future Music Project classes. Starting with theory and ear training, students learn musicianship skills before working on songwriting and digital music production. In addition, all students take classes in best audition and performance practices. This is a great workshop for students who are new to Future Music Project, want to try more than one workshop, or want to learn basic musicianship skills.


    Songwriting

    October 11–June 27
    Wednesdays, 4–6:30 PM

    Students learn to write their own songs and craft lyrics and music. Students also learn how to arrange music for multiple instruments, draft original charts, and draw inspiration from everyday life into songs. This is a multi-instrument class with vocalists and instrumentalists working side-by-side with professional songwriters. All songwriters have the opportunity to perform their original songs in the monthly Studio 57 Live concert series.


    Digital Music Production

    October 12–June 28
    Thursdays, 4–6:30 PM

    Students learn technical skills including recording engineering design and production recording. Students also learn how to track and lay down original music while recording each other, and work with professional producers, musicians, and DJs to create and record their own music. Prior experience with music production software is recommended.
