Research has proven the importance of the music industry to young people. An
understanding of the inner workings of a music studio is a necessary component of this
industry. In order to meet this need, the YMWAHA has developed a community music
and production studio to engage the time and nurture the talents of emerging artists.
They will teach the technical skills of how a music studio works: music production from
start to finish and an understanding of the elements of a successful studio. Rhyme and
Release is a unique program that focuses on organization of thought, expression,
creative writing and poetry that is a later blended with music and turned into songs.
Students are encouraged to embrace their creativity, the environment and life
experiences and express them through art.
