TrackSmith Teen Outreach
Our teen outreach program is a non-profit entity of TrackSmith Entertainment developed to serve teens between the ages of 13 and 18 who have a keen interest in the understanding of the music and entertainment industry. We seek to educate teens about the realities of the music business using a grass-roots approach to provide hands on experience in music production and artist development. Resulting from our individual experience in the pursuit of our professional goals within the music and entertainment industry, we found that there is a need for understanding the various aspects of the industry before attempting to pursue a career in the field. The goal for this program is to help new and aspiring artists and future music producers by facilitating a learning environment for the purpose of educating participants in the technical basics of using a programs to create music, and providing the recording session experience giving teens a real “behind the scenes” experience by allowing them to participate, as a team, in the process of working on a group project. This project will emphasize the stages of music production and engineering; and artist development and management services. It will be facilitated as a 10-week workshop training (2 days per week and 2 hours each day, between the hours of 4pm and 6pm)for talented individuals who posses the potential and desire to become actively involved in the music and entertainment industry. The estimated start date is January 14, 2010 and the program is expected to end on April 3, 2010. January 14th will not be a workshop day. It will be the day that we have an audition for talent potential and to answer questions that parents and participants may have about the workshop. The 1st workshop will start on Thursday, January 21, 2010 and the last workshop will be on Saturday, March 27, 2010. April 3rd will be the date of our participants perform, open a showcase presented by TrackSmith Entertainment celebrating their progress and entertaining the audience.

We also encourage parents to volunteer their assistance, whenever they are available, on an “as needed bases”.
