The 343 Labs music technology after school program is one of the few programs in York City that teaches middle and high school students how to produce, perform, and collaborate using the latest music technology. Students are shown how to produce music they are passionate about, integrating music software and electronic music hardware with traditional instruments and vocals. They will learn to produce and perform their own tracks, as well as learning essential music theory and piano skills needed to become a well-rounded music producer. Sharing a space with the renowned Scratch DJ Academy, right next to the NYU campus in downtown Manhattan, 343 Labs boasts some of the most experienced instructors that help students achieve their goals. Most importantly, students will learn the importance of collaboration, how interpersonal connections are made through music, and how music technology can be a direct vehicle for self-expression.
