Free Summer Intensive for Rising 11th Graders Interested in Audio Engineering & Music Production


The CUNY Creative Arts Team (CAT), with funding from the Mayor’s Office for Media and Entertainment, is launching a *free* initiative for current 10th grade students called Sound Thinking NYC. The program kicks off with a Summer Intensive for young people (especially young women and non-binary/gender-nonconforming folks) who are interested in exploring career opportunities in the music industry. Participants will learn about audio engineering, music production, sound design, and audio technology from educators and professionals in the industry. Graduates of the Summer Intensive will be invited to participate in a series of events during their 11th grade school year, apply for paid summer internships before they begin 12th grade, and apply to take free college credit courses at CUNY during their senior year of high school. You can check out the website for more information and to submit an application.
