What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

I am the Musical Director and Coordinator for an organization called “Life Camp Inc.” Life Camp works with young people aged 13-21 from neighborhoods in Queens, writing and recording original Hip Hop and R&B music. We also organize live performances in schools throughout the tri-state area.

Short Description Of Project

Our vision, in addition to having fun, is to give children the necessary skills they will need to further their artistry and give them a familiarity of working with music production software and equipment.

We are starting to put together a CD of music we have written and recorded to be based around our annual “Peace Week Event” that takes place January 15-21. The goal of Peace Week is to promote Peace and take a stand against Gun Violence.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

We need a laptop, preferably a Mac, to manage the CD project’s development and allow me to be more hands on with the kids and their creative process. In addition to managing the project, a laptop will be crucial to actually creating and producing the music, as well as the art work for the CD.
