Music Industry Education Curriculum
The ADMIT Program teaches real skills for life! Using the textbook That’s a Rap!, which was written for this program, participants are taught about many rarely careers opportunities in the music industry, while they learn to view music from a standpoint of social responsibility and positive influence.
Participants learn Pro Tools, Reason, FL Studio, and other professional music software; write their own positive songs; then take their songs to the recording booth to get their positive messages heard! Service learning is a key element as young people are taught the value of giving back to society - even at an early age - through the positive music they create to enhance their community and encourage their peers.
After-school students will also receive piano lessons and music theory training through the ADMIT Program, to try to compensate for the loss of so many music classes in our schools due to budgetary considerations. Unfortunatel our children suffer greatly from removal of music programs, since involvement in music has been proven to be a strong determining factor in overall grade level proficiency in other school subjects. The ADMIT Program will provide a curriculum that meets many State of Georgia standards for music education, while preparing our youth for careers in the music industry or to succeed in other critical areas of their lives.
That's A Rap! - Text and Workbook
"That's A Rap! A Music Industry Sourcebook for Generation NeXt" is the companion text and work book written by Thomas Demerritte, which serves as the foundation for the music industry education provided by the ADMIT Program. This easy to read and entertaining book is also available for sale to use in all music industry classes and programs, as well as libraries.
The music industry can be an intimidating thing for young people to try to understand. "That's a Rap!" is one of the first books written specifically for today's youth to give them a better appreciation of the music industry. Readers will be surprised to find out that most people who work in the music business can't sing or play a note of music! These behind the scene music careers are the ones that last the longest, and this book will show you why.
"That's a Rap" also explores the history of hip-hop, teaches about social responsibility in music and introduces the P.L.E.D.G.E Principle to young readers who are considering music industry careers. There has been a steady decline in the measured reading skills of many urban youth (particularly among African American males.) This book is designed to provide them with interesting age-appropriate reading material, given the attraction and fascination that young people have for hip-hop music and what they believe they know about the music industry. Make sure to gey copies for your students!
