Music

Can you feel the rhythm? Some people are born musicians. Some are very in tune with music. Others have a desire to learn more about the industry – how a song is born, what it takes to become a success, and how an album is produced and marketed. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes in the music industry, and you can spend your summer discovering where it all begins.
