Over the past four weeks we have been working with students from Coile and Hillsman Middle School in Athens, Georgia. This program has been a little different because it was the first time we tried our new Student Studio format, which pairs a certified teacher with a music producer/engineer to teach the program and it was a HUGE success! Collaborative teaching is an amazing tool and I can’t wait to implement Student Studio in the schools we are in this Fall! The kids did an amazing job and created some very awesome work. Athens, you have some talent in the pipeline!
