My Project

Children expressing feelings about loss, hopes and dreams is powerful stuff. It is something we take very seriously at our new recording studio. They write songs, produce each others music and encourage everyone who comes in.

Software and hardware will allow more creativity and growth in even more children in New Haven.

We are trying to grow our 8 station music technology lab to 10 stations. We are trying to enhance the experience of recording vocals with inspirational software.

Your contribution will help us make that happen.

May God bless!
