Notes for Notes is a non-profit organization which builds, equips, and staffs after-school recording studios (inside Boys & Girls Clubs) packed with guitars, drums, keys/synths, DJ gear, digital music stations and full recording studios offering youth completely FREE access to explore, create, and record music. They currently manage studios at Boys & Girls Clubs in Santa Barbara, Nashville, and Los Angeles—with more coming soon to Brooklyn, San Francisco, Detroit, Austin, and Atlanta thanks to the CMA Foundation. Notes for Notes has a policy of letting young artist own their art—they don’t censor lyrics or promote themselves as an anti-gang/drug program… it’s all about music and the positive bonds that form as a result. Notes for Notes’ curriculum extends beyond music creation and into education on the multitude of careers around the industry.
