The Singer's Audition Handbook

Want to make a great demo recording? Check out this blog post by Claudia Friedlander, who explains how to record audio or video that best represents you and your voice.

Throughout the summer and early fall, The Singer’s Audition Handbook will help you identify, prepare, and successfully audition for the educational and performance opportunities that are right for you. 

Digital Music Production Workshops at Carnegie Hall

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 to receive more information about the workshops, and make sure to check back for updates!
