C.A.E. CURRICULUM MODULES:
BUSINESS / YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
C.A.E.’s Makin' the Band (MTB) is a workshop designed to an introduce students to the industries of film-making and music. MTB’s goals are to reinforce interpersonal skills of listening, decision making, assertiveness, and respect for others - which are among the qualities now most highly valued in business and high-tech industry contexts.
Participating students will explore technical aspects of meter, various genres of music, songwriting structure, brand building, and hands-on experience in operating computer-based digital audio and visual workstations and equipment.
Guest appearances by Local and National Recording and Performing Artists (In Partnership with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame + Museum, Lesson's on the Lake Music Arts Academy & Nyack College School of Music NYC) play an integral part of our students learning experience. The artists serve as music mentors to help students reach their full potential within the music and production industry and beyond. Constructive criticism will be given by the experts to help enhance the overall product, and to share the importance of making wise choices in life in order to accomplish their dreams. Video and film production courses will also be introduced.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
C.A.E.'s MTB reality-based docu-series will air six -15 minute episodes on the World Wide Web and local cable television to highlight the progress and performance of the band. Episodes from the auditions to the production recording of their first music and video projects - students will have acquired real-life experiences designed to inspire entrepreneurial strategies for the future. The end-of-workshop highlight and final show taping will broadcast the band as they tour with C.A.E.'s Co-Founder & CEO, B.J. Pleasant for three days in Germany. This docu-series is loosely based on the concept of ABC/MTV's Making the Band television show.
