Music Unites and Swizz Beatz held a workshop in the producer’s studio, concentrating on aspects of the music industry and how he started in the business. Twenty students got the opportunity to see the private state-of-the-art facility, as Swizz guided them around his studio answering questions and explaining the music creation process. The session also included a Q&A with Swizz regarding his career, where Swizz encouraged all students to pursue their passion, and turn their obstacles into triumphs.The award-winning producer’s remarked that he ‘is still a student and always will be a student.’ “I love learning and loved that all of the students in the studio were learning from me, but at the same time, I am also learning from each and every one of them,” - Swizz Beatz.

After the Q&A, students observed MU Student Ambassadors Candace Lee Camacho and Kyle Alfred recreate a studio session setting. Candace and Kyle performed a song on the spot, and with Swizz’s help turned it into a recording reality.It was an impressive inside look at how songs were created and recorded in the studio.

The initiative is part of a series of events leading up to ‘Music-Versity: Power of One’, an event at the Intrepid Museum on January 17th, which will include students from The Bronx Charter School of The Arts and two of our MU programs: MU Cares and MU’s Guitar Program at The Women’s Academy of Excellence.
