B.E.A.T.S  STUDIO 

 

The Carnegie Boys & Girls Club is proud to announce the opening of the B.E.A.T.S Studio (Being Excellent Achieved Through Sound).  We have a full fledged recording studio where teens can express their creativity through the power of music.  Teens will be able to produce and record music with the help of our in house engineer Sam Conturo.  Sam has been involved in music engineering for the past 5 years.  He recently ran the music studio at the University of Pittsburgh and participated in Carnegie Mellon’s Arts Greenhouse program.  In addition to learning how to use the studio equipment, teens will also learn about the business of music.  We look forward to seeing our teens achieve excellence through sound.
