Are you or do you know any students that dream of breaking ground in the music industry? P'Tones Records is the program for them!
P'Tones is a 501c3 non-profit after school music program for at-risk middle and high school students. Using donations we source from various companies and individuals, we set up full-service recording studios in urban communities across the country, recruiting local children who have a passion for music. Each studio is represented by one or several mentors, all of whom are accomplished and widely known recording artists. While the day-to-day operations are run by local college students (whom we call interns), mentors work with the students in a hands-on studio environment, and frequently return to check on the progress of the program. The program follows a 6-course curriculum, which includes lessons in Multimedia, A&R, Publicity, Marketing, Art and New Media, and culminates in each student’s composition, production and mastering of a complete album.
Some of our committed spokespeople include 9th Wonder, Black Jeruz, Nas, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Cool & Dre, Drumma Boy, Talib Kweli, Chris Styles and Salaam Remi, to name a few. We also have studios in Brooklyn, NY, Durham, NC, Trenton, NJ, Tallahassee, FL and Miami, FL with studios slated to launch in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Memphis and San Francisco in the near future.
We are vigorously seeking more applicants to our programs across the country. High school seniors who are students in our program also have opportunities to receive full college scholarships (through our partnerships with North Carolina Central University and Florida A&M) and internships in the music industry (through our partnership with Warner Music Group). We are vigorously seeking applicants to our other 5 existing studios for both intern and student positions.
