Samick Summer Music Workshop – A Hands-on Introduction to the Music Industry.
Samick is always interested in reaching the youth and their local community through music. This summer marked the beginning of Samick Music’s new Samick Summer Music Workshop, a hands-on introduction to the music industry. Each summer, Samick will select a local group of young musicians and ‘coach’ them in the important elements of playing in a successful band. However, the experience doesn’t end with playing music – teaming up with pro musicians, music business vets, community leaders, and other gear manufacturers, the program also exposes these young musicians to the business end of the music industry, coupled with basic success and leadership skills that they can use in their individual career aspirations.
The program lasts into early fall and ends with a live public performance by the band. The pilot program is underway now with a band called “Some Assembly Required” (First place winners in the band category at the 2012 Hendersonville Talent Gala), who are scheduled to perform at the Gallatin Fall Festival in October.
