Be Jay-Z for a day in the ADMIT Program!
Yes you can......
....Be all you can be with the ADMIT Program (and check out our new Song of the Week feature)
Yeah, that's right! You can be the one, the only, The Man or That Girl! With hands-on professional music training and production sessions through the ADMIT Program, you too can live the dream of a lifetime. The only limitation is your imagination. Designed specifically for creative youths of today, the ADMIT Program is your ticket to an exciting behind-the-scenes but lucrative music career. You can learn about being a songwriter like Ne-Yo, an artist manager or publicist, or a producer like Timberland, and Pharrell or even an artist turned music mogul like Jay-Z!
In the ADMIT Program, kids have access to thousands of dollars of professional studio equipment where they learn the technology and skills of music production.
As a bonus they also learn invaluable life skills in a positive social environment while giving back to their community through the positive songs they create.
Too good to be true, right? Check us out at www.theadmitprogram.org and see for yourself how you can get involved.
The ADMIT Program grooves down SOUTH !!!!!
With the success of our Liberty City Studio, the ADMIT Program has opened a brand new fully equipped recording studio which is now ready to serve youths and music professionals in the South Dade area. Here the advanced ADMIT students receive training over a 12-week period about music careers, equipment and production methods while working together to record their own positive CD album.
An open house will be scheduled in the near future to introduce the new studio to South Miami-Dade area students and agencies. This new facility is located at 9958 Hibiscus Street in West Perrine and the telephone number is (305)235-7100, where you can ask for Rony or Andre, our highly skilled studio and music business instructors. More info on this open house event will be coming soon. We are also on the verge of receiving grant funding to create a third recording studio and training facility to serve the youths in Miami Gardens and Opa-locka, as well as funding for a new program to train youths in the newspaper and print media industry.
