About SuccessLink with Boston Music Project
Digital Music Apprentice & Summer Band Student Musician
This 6-week Music Production Apprenticeship and Summer Band program is designed for Boston-based high school musicians who are interested in exploring careers in music performance, music production, music business, and live sound engineering. Over the course of the summer, youth musicians will gain a comprehensive understanding of the music industry, job opportunities in music production, and the skills needed to succeed in this field.
The program is structured around three main themes: studio production skills, live sound engineering, and music business. Musicians will learn to use music production software and hardware tools, create and mix original music, operate live sound equipment, and develop marketing plans for their music. The program culminates in the release of an original album of student-produced music and a showcase event to share their work with peers and families. Throughout the program, musicians will have the opportunity to work on individual and group projects, receive feedback and critiques, and engage with guest speakers from different areas of the music industry.
