My name is Scott Johnson and I am a high school teacher, Last May I organized a DJ & Turntable workshop for students in my Media Arts courses. What I expected was a fun and unique way for my students to explore the origins of music that we know today as Hip Hop, House, Breakbeat, Rap, EDM, etc. It was a blast! The students had a great time!
Something else happened too…
The students who usually struggled in class were the most engaged! They became the leaders of the room! As I watched, their CONFIDENCE GREW, they were PROUD OF THEIR WORK!
I want to provide a space for these students to THRIVE. Through the art of the DJ and Turntablism, I want to provide a fun and dynamic environment for these students while at the same time keeping them busy when they're not in school.
We've got the curriculum, amazingly talented instructors, and a great downtown location. What we need now is the equipment. With your donation, we will be able to provide turntables, mixers, controllers, and headphones for our students.
Help us EMPOWER our city's youth. Help us put the music back in their hands.
