Carnegie Hall's Musical Exchange is a free online community for young musicians (ages 13 and up) to connect with fellow artists and to develop their talents with professional mentors.
Learn to create, record, and produce your own music. Join professional musicians and producers from Carnegie Hall and Building Beats to explore digital production techniques used in hip hop, rap, and R&B.
Get hands-on experience with creative software, laptops, tablets, microphones, and audio mixing consoles. No prior experience is necessary to join a workshop--just an open mind!
The workshops are for students ages 16-19, and are entirely free! Workshops will be held on Saturdays at Carnegie Hall begin in January 2015, and you can join at any time.
Sign up HERE to receive more information about the workshops, and make sure to check out our latest set of workshop resources so you can continue creating your own music at home.
