SOUND SCHOLARS GRP’s awesome teen program where students attend instrument lessons while also working on semester-long experimental audio projects. The program creates space to explore various possibilities of sound and think beyond a traditional narrative or song structure while also providing a creative and communal space for teens to discuss and process their personal experiences of being youth in Philadelphia. Articles, podcasts, videos, and group discussions ground their conversations. Through Sound Scholars, we also offer an internship program, as well as work to connect students with other organizations and resources in the city. (Friday)
