Grove Studios and Leon Speakers announce a new workshop series as the first segment of their Amplify Fellowship. This free, virtual event will take place at 7pm on October 25.

Grove Studios and Leon Speakers are excited to announce a new workshop series as part of their ongoing partnership to support music education in Washtenaw County. 

An October 25 workshop called “Producer Infrastructure,” led by Nelson K. Johnson of Eighty Five Productions, will teach musicians how to establish themselves legally as songwriters. They’ll also learn how to create music for TV as well as film sync licensing opportunities.

These free, informative workshops for the artistic community are a segment of the Amplify Fellowship. The Amplify Fellowship, which started in September, works to help amplify African-American voices in Washtenaw County.

The program will allow local musicians to augment technical skills and develop marketing and business strategies in the coming months with expert partners from the two organizations. Additionally, the program will be supporting three African-American musical acts with studio time and music creation.

“These workshops are a game-changer for musicians in the county. There are so many elements of music that are shrouded from the Black community at-large, including alternate revenue streams and best practices. We are honored to fill the gap by helping musicians develop the infrastructure of a successful musical career,” said Rod Wallace, Educational Programs Coordinator at Grove Studios.

Be sure to tune in at 7pm on October 25 to check out the workshop live streamed at Grove Studio’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, and YouTube.
