Flagship Program: Music Production and Song Writing
with Paul Josephs, Metrosonics Concepts Founder
Also known as "Hip Hop Production," this is Metro Sonics Concepts premier program. Paul Josephs has been teaching this class for the past thirteen years.
In these workshops, students are guided through the process of producing a song from beginning to end. Students make beats, write lyrics, record their voices and take part in the completion of a finished track. The basic format is that students 'sample' sounds from the classroom, neighborhood or school building and make a 'beat' with those sounds. They then write and record their own lyrics. At the same time they produce the song by adding melodic instruments and other instrument based samples. The program culminates with students receiving a professionally mixed and mastered track of their original work. The experience is a transformative process that fosters self-awareness and confidence and gives students a tangible sense of accomplishment.
