Montreal, QC – Created by David Hodges himself, the Notre Home Music Program is a music program that has recently been taking over schools across Canada. It’s a studio experience brought into the school environment with an educational approach, helping broaden a youth’s interest in music. The program visits schools working with youth who have a desire to create, communicate, play and work; providing them with the opportunity to create original songs. Students learn about recording, music production, songwriting, performance, marketing and design. During the studio’s two-week residency, the Notre Home Music Program creates 5 to 10 original songs containing positive and uplifting messages.
The first project installment is available for direct download via NotreHome.ca and features 7 original songs that were put together with students at Lester B Pearson High School in Montreal. These songs are meant to represent hope, motivation, love, struggle and new beginnings. At the end of the program, one song is selected for a professional video shoot giving students a chance to experience the creation of their own music video. Watch the first official video from the project directed by Drei Films below and check in for more news on upcoming projects!
