Future Music Project gives New York City teens the opportunity to create, perform, and produce their own original music. Teens can participate in Studio 57, a free weekly open studio on Saturdays where they attend master classes, jam with their peers, and work on independent projects. Weekly afterschool workshops range from songwriting and digital music creation to concert production. The Future Music Project Ensemble—a collective of young musicians—performs and produces its own music at Carnegie Hall and across New York City. Future Music Project also includes Count Me In, which gives eighth-grade singers the opportunity to prepare for auditions to performing arts high schools in New York City.
Lead support for Future Music Project is provided by Nicola and Beatrice Bulgari.
Major support is provided by the Hive Digital Media Learning Fund in the New York Community Trust.
Public support is provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York City Administration for Children's Services, and New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
