Project RYTMO [Reaching Youth Through Music Opportunities] is an after school music program designed to provide a creative and professional environment for underserved youth who demonstrate musical, technical and/or business potential in the arts. Our mission is to educate, empower and equip youth through music, music technology and artistic development.
Since 2004, we have serviced over 225 at-risk and adjudicated youth. Many of our youth go on to start their own record labels, video & audio companies, perform live shows or produce music for themselves and other artists. Other youth go on to acquire jobs, receive accreditation through school or even simply develop a sense of personal agency in their lives, like getting off the street or overcoming other detrimental barriers in their lives.
The RYTMO courses are hands-on and involve the study of Music History, Music Theory, Commercial Songwriting, Digital Recording, Beat-making, Production, Vocal Exploration, Instrument Lessons, Performance Techniques, Live Audio/Engineering, Music Business and Project Development. Classes are held at Love & Laughter Recording Studios in Anaheim, CA. This unique and professional setting allows for youth to appreciate and be exposed to a state-of-the-art recording facility with top-of-the-line equipment. We also assist youth in work experience, mentoring, life skills training, community service, and tutoring. Project RYTMO is a free program available to youth ages 14-24, thanks to The Department of Labor, several WIA funded cities, and various sponsorships and donations.
We are always seeking qualified Youth, Volunteers & Mentors, Sponsors & Donors, Tutors, Individual & Corporate Sponsorships, Community Partnerships and strategic collaborations with non-profit youth organizations and law enforcement agencies. Feel free to contact us if you or someone you know may be interested in collaborating with us.
