MusicLAB (Ages 11-18)

MusicLAB is a program for young musicians who are interested in exploring contemporary music. Students work and learn together in a progressive, social musical environment while being coached by Underground faculty members. We give students the freedom, technology, and guidance to follow their creative impulses.

The experience of MusicLAB includes:

  • Learning how to create music in modern genres such as Hip Hop, Electronic and Rock
  • Connection to, and playing with, other musicians of similar age and interests
  • Developing essential music skills such as ear-training, arranging, composition and performance
  • Hands-on experience with music production software (Logic, Pro Tools), plug-ins and effects processing pedals for guitar, bass, etc.
  • Recording in WCMS's Nichols Hall recording facility
  • Studying with experienced teachers/ industry professionals
  • Development of musical, interpersonal, and problem-solving skills
